Ah, dear readers, we have come to this pass.
I have contemplated doing a Monday, or, indeed, a Friday Random Ten many times before, but then music for which you will make fun of me always comes up in my playlist. So consider this a M/FRT in which I might hurriedly skip ahead on some tracks. Trust me, it’s better for all of us this way. Although you must keep in mind my love of musical theatre and dislike of much music made during my lifetime as we do this. Also that it’s Tuesday where I am.
How does one play along? Well, get out your music player of choice and set it to shuffle, then post a list of the, um, first ten songs that come up.
1. “My Friend” – Groove Armada
2. “Truly Madly Deeply” – Savage Garden
3. “Dublin Sky” – Darren Hayes
4. “I Just Can’t Wait to Be King” (Lion King soundtrack) – Jason Weaver, Rowan Atkinson and Laura Williams
5. “Rain” – The Corrs
6. “Don’t Bring Me Down” – Electric Light Orchestra
7. “Never Tear Us Apart” – INXS
8. Beethoven’s Symphony #3 In E Flat, Op. 55, “Eroica” – Scherzo: Allegro Vivace – Bela Drahos: Nicolaus Esterhazy Sinfonia
9. “Defying Gravity” – Idina Menzel and Kristen Chenoweth
10. “Jet Airliner” – Steve Miller Band
Your turn. There’s a bonus video below the fold.
We all remember Ok Go’s “Here it Goes Again,” right? Lyrics here.
Description: Four men perform a rather mesmerising dance routine on treadmills arranged lengthways, two in front, two in the middle, and two in the back.
