Friday Random Ten

R&L take the week's cake. And I have to admit a weakness for "Moneymaker," although I should know better.

Bob & Steve. Imagine Steve observing the rivalry of Bob, Fred & Dave, as chronicled in the prior's autobio, from the p.o.v. of 1967 (when Bluebird was recorded). Bob cajoling pop, Dave art song, Fred raga (& coke). Only to be topped by Elvis, at least on this Friday, though Everything is Broken comes close.

What kind of a great world have we made for ourselves where Waits, Dylan and the Stones are mainstream? That's a brave new world with such tunes in't, is what it is, boys.

Freealonzo, I have a superb Bright Eyes cover of "Papa Was a Rodeo." I'll have to check yours out on iTunes.
