It’s a gorgeous spring day, the Masters tournament is in full swing, and, to top it off, it’s Friday... time for the Friday Random Ten.

Please try to curb your enthusiasm.

Alas, the iPod d’Elisson, AKA the Little White Choon Box, is 850 miles away at Chez Elisson. But all that means is that we shall exercise the standard Fallback Option, using the iPhone d’Elisson from which to extract today’s Choon-List. There’s a smaller pile of Choons from which to draw, but with over 900 song files, there are still plenty for our purposes.

One nice touch: Our rental car is one of those late-model Korean SUV’s that comes equipped with (!) Bluetooth. Good Gawd! Now I can pair up my iPhone with the car’s stereo system and play my Random Crap without even having to plug anything in.

What’s on the ol’ playlist today? Let’s take a peek:
  1. Lugubrious Whing Whang - Squirrel Nut Zippers

  2. How Could I Be Such a Fool - Frank Zappa

  3. Because - The Beatles

    This is the a capella version from the Love mashup album.

  4. Boxing - Ben Folds

  5. Hine Ani Ba (Here I Come) - HaDag Nachash

    Israeli rap music. Who’d a thunk it?

  6. Blind Love - Tom Waits

  7. Piggy in the Middle - The Rutles

    A clever parody of “I Am the Walrus” by Neil Innes and Eric Idle of Monty Python fame.

  8. E Luxo So - Stan Getz & Charlie Byrd

    From the incandescent Jazz Samba, the record that started the Bossa Nova craze in the United States... 48 years ago.

  9. Uncle Meat - Frank Zappa

  10. Urinetown - Urinetown, Original Cast

It’s Friday. What are you listening to?
