Friday Random Ten

Bobby Bare Jr. "Borrow Your Cape" Bloodshot Records Sampler 7
X "Motel Room in My Bed" Under the Big Black Sun
Tony Furtado "Song for Early" Roll My Blues Away
Sonny Rollins "Tell Me That You Love Me" Silver City--A Celebration of 25 Years
Tom Waits "Hoist That Rag" Real Gone
Rodney Crowell "U Don't Know How Much I Hate U" The Houston Kid
Dave Stewart & Barbara Gaskin "It's My Party" The Big Stiff Box Set
Kate Bush "Under Ice" Hounds of Love
Pere Ubu "Goodnite Irene" Worlds in Collision
Liz Phair "South Dakota" Juvenilia

Frank Sinatra "It Never Entered My Mind" In the Wee Small Hours

While the best song has to be the X, this isn't a bad list of surprises, especially sitting in a list with all the other oddballs. And now I'm dreaming of that David Thomas-Sinatra duet, or Sonny Rollins backing Kate Bush.
