Friday Random Ten

The Four Tops "I Can't Help Myself" Heaven Must Have Sent You
Tommy Keene "Don't Sleep in the Daytime" Real Underground
Fountains of Wayne "Bought for a Song" Welcome Interstate Managers
The Velvet Underground "Cool It Down" Peel Slowly and See
Bill Nelson "Radiant Spires" Chance Encounters in the Garden of Lights: The Angel at the Western Window
Pere Ubu "Go" Datapanik in the Year Zero: 1980-1982
Gavin Bryars "Tramp with Orchestra IV (full strings)" Jesus' Blood Never Failed Me
Billy Bragg "The Price I Pay" (demo) Workers' Playtime
Eurythmics "Missionary Man" Revenge
William Bell "Share What You Got (But Keep What You Need)" The Complete Stax/Volt Singles: 1959-1968

Peter Murphy "Blind Sublime" Love Hysteria

Well, that was mostly pop. Plus it's nice to celebrate Levi Stubbs, and then have a Billy Bragg cut later. Two cuts from CDs that were Amy's--can you spot them?

I also want to nominate "Share What You Got (But Keep What You Need)" as the national anthem for the new SUSA (that's Socialist United States of America).

9 is Amy's, although to be fair I do have the vinyl. But 1 is mine--that HDH box set is pretty tasty, even if much of it is quite familiar.
