Look out! Here comes another installment of the Friday Random Ten, that time-wasting space filler regular feature in which I post a list of random musical selections as barfed out by the iPod d’Elisson.

Ahhh, Friday. We were all set to take a weekend jaunt up to Asheville, North Carolina, when predictions of wintry weather intervened. Much as I might have enjoyed a view of the Blue Ridge Mountains under a fresh ten-inch blanket of snow, the prospect of trying to drive home through those mountains was more than just a little daunting. Discretion being the better part of valor, we elected to postpone our trip. Alas.

But being home has its own attractions, not least among them the chance to listen to my dopey Choon-Library. And here’s a taste for you:
  1. Take Me to the Pilot - Elton John

    If you feel that it’s real I’m on trial
    And I’m here in your prison
    Like a coin in your mint
    I am dented and I’m spent with high treason
    Through a glass eye your throne
    Is the one danger zone
    Take me to the pilot for control
    Take me to the pilot of your soul

    Take me to the pilot
    Lead me through the chamber
    Take me to the pilot
    I am but a stranger
    Take me to the pilot
    Lead me through the chamber
    Take me to the pilot
    I am but a stranger

    Well I know he’s not old
    And I’m told he’s a virgin
    For he may be she
    But what I’m told is never for certain

  2. Raga Bihag, Part 1 - Natraj

  3. Sparkle - Phish

  4. 40 Years Back Come - Röyksopp

  5. Reality Dub - Linton Kwesi Johnson

  6. When Desperate Static Beats the Silence Up - Ben Folds

  7. Sarabande: Handel: Eight Pieces - Philharmonia Virtuosi

  8. The Wanted Man - The Judybats

  9. Tell Me What You See - The Beatles

  10. Birds of Fire - Mahavishnu Orchestra

It’s Friday. What are you listening to?
