Here we go again with yet another installment of Blog d’Elisson’s Friday Random Ten, in which I post a list of ten random songs hocked out of the iPod d’Elisson like so many Musical Loogies.

It’s the last Friday of 2007. The Missus and I are spending this Holiday Interregnum at home, bent to the task of cleaning and organizing our mare’s nest of a basement. Oh, joy. It’s a job we’ve managed to put off for over nine years, but, as they say, “Enough Z’nuff.”

Music, meanwhile, lightens the Load of let’s see what’s on the box today:
  1. Polovtsian Dances - Borodin (L. Stokowski, conductor)

    The musical inspiration for the 1953 Broadway show “Kismet,” from Borodin’s opera Prince Igor.

  2. Mama Told Me Not To Come - Randy Newman

    Most people are more familiar with the cover version by Three Dog Night...but this is the Real Thing.

  3. Smoke - Ben Folds Five

  4. The Luckiest - Ben Folds

  5. Act II, Scene 3: Dance - Philip Glass, Akhnaten

  6. You And Whose Army? - Radiohead

  7. Kiss Me/Ladies In Their Sensitivities - Sondheim, Sweeney Todd

    From the original Broadway version in 1979.

  8. Mardi Gras In New Orleans - Professor Longhair

  9. Smoking - Bill Hicks

    Hicks died of cancer in 1994. Not lung cancer, as the title of this track might cause you to infer, but pancreatic cancer. Oof.

  10. Wood & Stone - Moonraker

It’s Friday. What are you listening to?
