Friday Random Ten

The Schramms "Tell Me Again and Again" Dizzy Spell
California Guitar Trio "Train to Lamy Pt. 4" Invitation
Cornershop "We're in Yr Corner" When I Was Born for the Seventh Time
Amy Rigby "Year of the Fling" Little Fugitive
The Skids "Scared to Dance" Sweet Suburbia: The Best of the Skids
Blondie "One Way or Another" Best of Blondie
Andrew Bird "MX Missiles" The Mysterious Production of Eggs
Alex Chilton "No Sex" High Priest (plus)
The Submarines "Vote" The Submarines
Liz Phair "Why Can't I?" Liz Phair

Bill Nelson "Call of the Wild" Chimes & Rings

Not a bad list--sort of sneaks up on me. That's a great Schramms cut to kick off, and I barely remembered it at all. An anthemic Chilton cut. And that's Phair from her pop move that is mostly dreadful, but god that's a catchy song. It's only bad if you know who is doing it and can then think how the mighty have fallen.

As a bonus, here's a Skids song I've always liked, but then I might be the only one. I don't know how they don't do arm thrusts for the "heys," though.

Not random, but appropriate this Friday maybe? ... the inimitable Elvis:

Thought I saw your face in the fire.
So hard to remember...
even an inferno can cool down
to an ember.
Now you're not the only flame
You're not the only flame
You're not the only flame in town...

That and the belated advice to vote, which, now that I think about it, still applies here, since we have a run-off along with two more weeks of sleaze ads from Saxby.
