Oh cheeky cheeky, oh naughty sneaky. Your future dream was a shopping scheme. Weasel! I'd never seen one wild before...oh, wait, that's the Annie Dillard and not the Laurie Anderson. Went down to the drunkards and told them everything is fine. Not just stuck in 77 but stuck singing about 77. There are worse things.

Sometimes the Friday Random Top 10s are just gems: I wish I could give the list to everyone so that they could hear what real good music sounds like and radio stations all around the country would take that list and play it on an endless loop. The above is definitely not one of those examples.

But Free, that list has "Moulty" on it, one of the greatest songs ever about a one-armed drummer!

I would say Moulty is more notorious than good but then again I guess I should be more respectful toward a song that got a shout-out in the Ramones' Rock and Roll Radio.
