It’s Friday, which means it’s time once again for Blog d’Elisson’s Friday Random Ten, the weekly Random Assortment o’ Cuts culled from the iPod d’Elisson.

I’m packing my bag for my annual Weekend Retreat in the north Georgia mountains. Rain? Mud? It matters not. We’ll be spending our time reconnecting with old friends from around the Southeast, getting a spiritual (and spirituous) shot in the arm. There will be Single Malt...and the Famous Sweat Hut.

What’s on the box this week? Let’s check it out:
  1. New York Girl - Miles Davis

    Miles at his most funkadelically outrageous, this tune is from On the Corner, a jazz-funk opus that is as far removed from the Cool Jazz of Kind of Blue as it is possible to be. Amazing what thirteen years can do.

    I heard him perform this piece live in 1972...and 36 years later, it still makes my head want to explode.

  2. Wizard People, Dear Reader (Part 2) - Brad Neely

    An alternative soundtrack to Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, you can download it here by right-clicking on the following links (Part 1 and Part 2). Play it while watching the movie on your DVD player with the sound turned off; it will give you a whole new perspective on the world of Harry Potter.

  3. Georgie And Her Rival - Elvis Costello

    From Mighty Like A Rose, one of my all-time favorite E.C. discs.

  4. Sunday Morning - The Velvet Underground

  5. Purpose - Avenue Q, Original Broadway Cast

  6. Bloody Well Right - Supertramp

  7. You Know What You Could Be - The Incredible String Band

  8. That’s The Way - Led Zeppelin

  9. Watermelon - Leo Kottke

  10. Mr. Bad Example - Warren Zevon

It’s Friday. What are you listening to?
