Friday at last!

Let’s get some of the routine Housekeeping Matters out of the way. The Friday Ark, now embarked on its 193rd voyage, has been posted at the Modulator. And the Carnival of the Cats, that weekly Feline Foofaraw, will be hosted by Kashim and Othello over at The Catboys Realm. So now you know what to do if you neet a Cat-Fix Sunday evening.

And now we can move on to the Main Event: the Friday Random Ten. Ten musical selections, picked by the Hand o’ Fate from the electronic brain of my iPod. What’s playing this week?
  1. Spanish Key - Miles Davis

    Perhaps my favorite cut from the landmark Bitches Brew album. You will have heard it if you ever saw the movie Collateral, in which Tom Cruise played against type as a cold-blooded hitman.

  2. Beauty Killed the Beast - James Newton Howard, King Kong (2005)

  3. Dead London - Jeff Wayne

  4. Gehn’s Theme - Robin Miller

    Creepy music from the video game Myst II: Riven.

  5. I Can Change - South Park: Bigger, Longer, Uncut

    Saddam Hussein’s big moment from the South Park movie soundtrack, one of the funniest - and most obscene - collections of songs ever.

  6. Piggy Pig Pig - Procol Harum

  7. I’m the Slime - Frank Zappa

  8. Scene 13: One Wheel Spinning - Philip Glass, Les Enfants Terribles

  9. I See a River - Urinetown - Original Cast Album

  10. Big Black Mariah - Tom Waits

It’s Friday. What are you listening to?

Update: CotC #220 is up.
