Friday Random Ten – The Well Rested Edition

Briefly popping in from my break to release the second edition of the Friday Random Ten hosted at Feministe.

1. Aimee Mann – You Could Make a Killing
2. Burro Banton – Boom Wah Dis
3. Mirah – Telephone Wires
4. Nina Simone – The Thrill Is Gone
5. The BeAtles – When I’m 64
6. Pixies – Allison
7. The Vibrators – Baby Baby
8. Sufjan Stevens – For the Widows in Paradise, For the Fatherless in Ypsilanti
9. Atmosphere, Slug and Dynospectrum – Anything is Everything
10. Johnny Cash – Danny Boy

Calling this a “Well Rested” edition is something of a misnomer. For example, as I write this I’m thinking, Yes! I get to sleep in until 7:30 tomorrow morning.

Napping, knitting, studying, ahoy.

    I hate to do this, but I must. The Beatles are spelled with an “A”. You know, because rock songs have “beat” not a “beet”. Yes, it’s silly. But it was the 60s.

    Yeah, Amanda, but I’m too tired to care right now. I’ll read this again this afternoon and the hair on the back of my neck will raise. And that’s when it will get edited.

    Dude, I thought QotSA broke up. Goes to show what I know. No worries, Lauren. I can’t spell for shit myself. I envy that you spell so well that you actually overcorrected “The Beatles”.

    1. “Can’t Sleep at Night”–The Cigarettes
    2. “New Dawn Fades”–New Order
    3. “Killing an Arab”–The Cure (A song about existientalism that is an inadvertant comment on the futility of America’s foreign policy on the random ten this week! Maybe there is a god.)
    4. “Some Velvet Morning”–Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazelwood
    5. “Dead Lovers Twisted Heart Hit”–The Starlight Mints (covering Daniel Johnston)
    6. “Lowdown”–Wire
