Friday Random Ten

Ali Farka Toure with Ry Cooder "Sega" Talking Timbuktu
Brian Eno "Blank Frank" Here Come the Warm Jets
Eyuphuro "Oh Mama (Oh Mother)" Mama Mosambiki
Sex Pistols "God Save the Queen" (demo) D.I.Y.: Anarchy in the UK--UK Punk I (1976-77)
Truckee Brothers "Gritty Pretty" Double Happiness
Victoria Williams "Let It Be So" Musings of a Creek Dipper
Andrew Bird "Opposite Day" The Mysterious Production of Eggs
Joshua Redman "How Come U Don't Call Me Anymore?" Timeless Tales (For Changing Times)
Wilco "Via Chicago" Summerteeth
Guided by Voices "Pimple Zoo" Alien Lanes

The Flamin' Groovies "Tallahassee Lassie" Groovies Greatest Grooves

Well, Flamin' Groovies two weeks in a row. There's certainly worse repeats than that, especially in a week with a wonderful world music flavor, the Sex Pistols anthem (in a slightly different guise), wonderfully weirdos like Andrew Bird and Victoria Williams, one of my favorite Wilco songs (and that means something), one of the Truckee's best, an Eno back from the fantastic first four, a fun Redman jazz workout, and 40 seconds of Robert Pollard doodling better than most people's finished compositions.

I'll take it.

Carla Bruni, "L’excessive" Quelqu’un m’a dit
The Rolling Stones, "My Obsession" Between the Buttons UK
Buena Vista Social Club, "Buena Vista Social Club" Buena Vista Social Club
k.d. lang, "Save Me" Ingenue
Lucinda Williams, "Words Fell" World Without Tears
The Kinks, "Strangers" The Darjeeling Limited

k.d. lang for me now two weeks in a row, although this week's song couldn't be more different from last's. And Mary must have been listening to her Carla Bruni CD on my computer and dreaming of Sarkozy, because it's too odd that iTunes would pick that track this week without a hint. Of course it did follow up with Carla's old squeeze on its own, so anything's possible, I guess.
