FRT: Back from the grave and ready to party...
Alright. It's been a while—at least a month or two—since I last bothered with the Friday Random Ten (12/9 to be precise). For some reason I think everybody was tapped out on the topic (as evidenced by the lack of participation over at LLATPN). Well, I'm bringing it back, and taking a cue from Otto—he picks a wacky album cover, I'm picking something to illustrate the list as well. Call it a motivator, but when I had to find just the right picture of Pete Townshend windmilling, it was more fun...
Here's the list:
1. "Shining Star" - Earth, Wind and Fire
2. "Song for Margo" - NY Loose
3. "Stickshifts and Safetybelts" - Cake
4. "The Nurse" - The White Stripes
5. "Medicine Hat" - Son Volt
6. "The Fleecing of America'" - dada
7. "Got the Time" - Joe Jackson
8. "Red Barchetta" - Rush
9. "Mother Popcorn" - James Brown
10. "Romeo and Juliet" - Dire Straits
I'll still put the extended commentary in the comments so I don't bump all the rest of my Pulitzer material down too far.
