Friday Random Ten

The Replacements "Hootenanny" Hootenanny
Spoon "Paper Tiger" Kill the Moonlight
Television "Blank Generation" (live at CBGB's) Spurts: The Richard Hell Story
The Holmes Brothers "You're Good for Me" Promised Land
Sonny Rollins "Sweet Leilani" This Is What I Do
East River Pipe "I Am a Small Mistake" Mel
Freedy Johnston "Wheels" Can You Fly
Talking Heads "Once in a Lifetime" Remain in Light
Suzanne Vega "Tom's Diner (Reprise)" Solitude Standing
The Spanic Boys "All Calms Down" Strange World

The Pooh Sticks "Sweet Baby James" The Great White Wonder

That's a list, not always great but always something. An odd version of one of punk's anthems that proves I do like Quine better than Verlaine, some soul, some jazz, one of the best least known albums of the '90s, one of the best songs period, an ok song from one of the best father-son combos and we go out with Hue Pooh and the gang. I'll take it.

After catching them almost a decade ago at the NOLA Jazz and Heritage Fest, I became a huge fan of Beausoleil. So many similarities between Acadian and Irish music...

By the way, my "word verification," speaking of Cajun music, is bcoup. Merci bcoup indeed.

I like it when Georgia gets to sing lead. Other than that, lesser known songs dominate here. And I guess it makes sense that knock knocks twice.
