Friday Random Ten

XTC "Rocket from a Bottle" Black Sea
Elvis Presley "Tomorrow Night" The Sun Sessions
XTC "Chain of Command" Drums and Wires
Luna "This Time Around" Bewitched
Dave Brubeck Quartet "Take Five" Time Out
Neko Case "Set Out Running" Furnace Room Lullabye
Billy Bragg "That's Entertainment" Workers Playtime (bonus disc)
Graham Parker "I Was Wrong" Human Soul
Graham Parker "Release Me" Burning Questions
The Who "Rael 1" The Who Sell Out

bonus
Space Negros "Sweep" Dig Archaeology

Nothing like a :38 bonus. I never quite get the artist stutter iTunes likes to pull sometimes, but it's better when it takes me to my younger self; when I did college radio people joked the station should have been called WXTC. Oh, and if you don't know that Luna tune, you really really should.
