Friday Random Ten

East River Pipe "My Life Is Wrong" Shining Hours in a Can
Liz Phair "Crater Lake" Whip-Smart
Cheb Khaled "Hana-Hana" Kutché
PJ Harvey "Who the Fuck?" Uh Huh Her
The Band "Don't Do It" Heaven Must Have Sent You--The Holland Dozier Holland Story

Nick Lowe "Heart" Basher--The Best of Nick Lowe

Plenty of good stuff, today, from all over, starting with one of the best sad laments of all time. I do have to admit, though, I like the jaunty Rockpile version of "Heart" way better than Nick's lazy reggae.

For years, I have been meaning to get into Yo La Tengo. Perhaps it is finally time to pull the trigger.

Still one of my top 2 all-time favorite bands, Smitty. Best places to start are Electr-o-pura and I Can Hear the Heart Beating as One but it's all at least very very good. And the latest, Popular Songs, just gets better with each listen.

Yikes! Forgot my bonus track! How's that work, anyway? Is it just #11? Too late now? (sorry, I'm new)

Welcome to the club, Queen. Always seemed a shame these were so male, but that's lists for you (see High Fidelity).

The bonus is just the next cut, since Random Ten goes to 11.
