Yes, it’s the Friday Random Ten, in which we tickle the throat of the iPod d’Elisson to see what random tunes it barfs up.

This week, the Randomizer has coughed up three - count ’em, three - Beatles songs. One of them is “A Day In The Life,” which, if I were to pick my single favorite Fab Four tune, might very well be the one. I can still remember hearing it the very first time, when WPLJ, a New York FM station, had gotten hold of an advance copy and aired it before the scheduled release date of the Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album. It was a true revelation, a window into the future of popular music.
  1. A Day In The Life - The Beatles
  2. I Want You (She’s So Heavy) - The Beatles
  3. A Pound For A Brown (On The Bus) - Frank Zappa
  4. Song For Children - Brian Wilson
  5. For No One - The Beatles
  6. The Internet Is For Porn - Avenue Q, Original Cast Recording
  7. To Cry You A Song - Jethro Tull
  8. Zol Nokh Zayn Shabes - The Klezmer Conservatory Band
  9. Otherside - Red Hot Chili Peppers
  10. Coffee Song - Skanatra
Update: Commenter Sadie correctly pointed out that I had only posted nine songs. No, I was not checking to see if anyone was paying attention; it was just a Brain-Fart on my part. [Probably part of the same Brain-Fart that caused me to inadvertently delete last week’s Friday Random Ten. Thank Gawd for the cached version of the site I found on Yahoo.] Regardless, I’ve plugged up the gap.

It’s Friday. What are you listening to?
