FRT – A Reluctant Edition

I don’t even want to do this this week but something remotely fun-esque is in order. Elsewhere, Norbizness proves that the South is home to some of our finest music with his Friday Non-Random Music List: Pelican State Edition

1) Belle and Sebastian – Sleep the Clock Around
2) The Arcade Fire – Crown of Love
3) Fats Domino – My Blue Heaven (how appropriate)
4) Eric Burdon and the Animals – When I Was Young
5) Beatles – Michelle
6) Sizzla – Somewhere Oh Oh
7) PJ Harvey – To BringYou My Love
8) Cat Power – I Don’t Blame You (I blame the Bush administration)
9) Jens Lekman – Tram No. 7 to Heaven
10) Elliott Smith – Amanda (if you got this far, go wish Amanda a happy birthday)

    Thanks for the B-day wishes! If I wasn’t foggy-brained, I’d do an all-1977 edition. But I want to play with my birthday present.
