    I’m glad I’m not the only one with a William Shatner song. Well, he’s more speaking in the one I have – how about yours?

    I’ve got the special edition up at my place (songs that I’m ashamed to have in my jukebox and that would probably, irrevocably ruin my reputation as a human being deserving of compassion if anybody knew about them). The following ten may or may not be embarrassing:

    1. Margerine Melodie (Stereolab) / 2. Gospel Plow (Screaming Trees) / 3. Quincy Punk Episode (Spoon) / 4. First-Time Mother’s Joy (Mercury Rev) / 5. Drama (L7) / 6. Goodbye-Goodbye (Oingo Boingo) / 7. Lazer Beam (Super Furry Animals) / 8. Letter Bomb (Circle Jerks) / 9. Jelly Roll Rock (The Cramps) / 10. Bye Bye Baby (T-Bone Walker)

    Aww – Wesley Willis. Haven’t heard him for awhile – he died a couple years back… diabetes? I can’t remember.

    I like seeing long lost artists of my past on other people’s playlists – makes me want my old harddrive back.

    Getting the hell out of the office any way I can:

    7. Coldplay: Don’t Panic
    8. Massive Attack: Five Man Army

    1) Muddy Waters: Mannish Boy
    2) The Commitments: Do Right Woman, Do Right Man
    3) Pink Floyd: Young Lust
    4) White Stripes: Ball and Biscuit
    5) Bongshang: If & When
    6) Rancid: Ruby Soho
    7) Melissa Etheridge: The Late September Dogs
    8) Roger Waters: 4:56 AM (For The Firts Time Today)
    9) Led Zeppelin: Dazed and Confused
    10) Led Zeppelin: I Can’t Quit You Baby

    Random eleventh) Rage Against The Machine: Year of the Boomerang

    Now, this is more like it. A reasonable limit to the classic rock, a bluesman doing blues and a punk rocker doing blues (Ball & Biscuit is the only straight blues song on Elephant, and it’s my favorite by a mile), and a modern Scottish folk band. No Wicked Tinkers, but they can’t appear in every Random Ten.

    I’ll be a total snob and score everyone’s list on how many songs in it I know and like. A low score may just indicate that I don’t know the stuff, so don’t worry.

    Lauren: 0 (despite lots of artists I like, I don’t know the material)
    Norbiz: 0 (way more punk than me, I guess.)
    Randomliberal: 2 (plus 5 bonus points for having the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and Immortal on the same list)
    Linnaeus: a whopping 7 (I gave you Primitive Radio Gods cause, to this day, I can’t decide if I like it or not, but I didn’t give you Weezer, cause anything after Pinkerton makes me very very sad.)
    drilakila: 1 (Some artists I know, but hardly any songs. Big props on The Cure)
    Sophist: 3 (Stretching the rules, I gave you Pavement cause they’re my new favourite band, even though I don’t know the song. I also gave you Mitch Hedberg.)
    Gelnnrwordman: 0 (I really want to give you Prince, but I already bent he rules and I don’t want to make it a habit.)
    Brian: 2 (High five on The Cure)
    Jen: 2 (but 4 in spirit – I love The Boss)
    thomas: 5 (and props for reminding me of high-school – I was big into Zep, Floyd, and RATM back then)
    Sina: 6 (a proud acheivement, second only to Linnaeus. His taste and mine are twins seperated at birth.)

    Well, that’s was horrifically self-indulgent. Deal with it, after this week I’ve earned it.
