Friday Random Ten

Talking Heads "(Nothing But) Flowers" Naked
Geoffrey Oryema "Payira Wind" Beat the Border
Big Star "Morpha Too" #1 Record/Radio City
The White Stripes "Take, Take, Take" Get Behind Me Satan
Nicky Skopelitis "Ghost of a Chance" Ekstasis
The Band of Blacky Ranchette "Under the Table" Still Lookin' Good to Me
M.I.A. "Fire Fire" Arular
Old 97's "Can't Get a Line" Satellite Rides
Galaxie 500 "Ceremony" On Fire
Habib Koite & Bamada "Wassiye" Ma Ya

The Band of Blacky Ranchette "Bored Lil' Devil" Still Lookin' Good to Me

OK, the repeat of the Howe Gelb side project is a bit odd, but otherwise there's a wide world of music here, something that doesn't always represent in my random ten. And it's as if the T-Heads to start got the old iTunes thinking that way.
