Friday Random Ten

Doug Martsch "Things Never Shared" Doug Martsch
Helen Merrill "You'd Be So Nice to Come Home To" Night and Day: The Cole Porter Songbook
Hayden "Stride" Loose: New Sounds of the Old West Volume Two
Randy Newman "Have You Seen My Baby" Guilty: 30 Years of Randy Newman
PJ Harvey "It's You" Uh Huh Her
Jack Logan "New Used Car and a Plate of Bar-B-Que" Bulk
Kelly Joe Phelps "Roll Away the Stone" Roll Away the Stone
Les Negresses Vertes "Famille Heureuse"" Famille Nombreuse
Yo La Tengo "Tired Hippo" And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside-Out
Guided by Voices "Teenage FBI" Do the Collapse

T Bone Burnett "Every Little Thing" The Criminal Under My Own Hat

Number 2 is quite fitting, and goes out to Amy. Then it's a three-way struggle for first with Jack Logan, GBV (yes, I like Do the Collapse--you GBV purists can make all the fun you want), and T Bone.
