I neglected to post the usual Friday Random Ten last week owing to our being out-of-town... and, after receiving hundreds of angry e-mails, I won’t be letting that happen again anytime soon.


But, after all, it is Friday again... and you’ll be wanting some Choons fresh outta the Little White Choon-Box, won’t you?

Here we go:
  1. Mr. Moonlight - The Beatles

    From the Beatles For Sale album, probably the weakest one in their entire discography.

  2. Idioteque - Radiohead

  3. Backed Up - Bill Hicks

  4. Lovers & Pinheads - Bobby Slayton

  5. Common Sense - Michael Leviton

  6. Lautturin Viivat - Alamaailman Vasarat

  7. Golden Birdies - Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band

    Those little golden birdies - look at them

    And the mystic Egypt tassel dangling down
    Old sleeper-man shish, don’t wake him
    Up one hand broom star was an obi-man
    Revered throughout the bone-knob land
    His magic black purse slit creeped open,
    Let go flocks of them

    Shish sookie singabus
    Snored like a red merry-go-round horse
    And an acid gold bar swirled up and down,
    Up and down, in back of the singabus
    And the pantaloon duck white goose neck quacked
    Webcor, webcor

  8. Green Earrings - Steely Dan

  9. Psycho Killer - Talking Heads

  10. Stagger Lee - Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds

    Hmmm... two songs in a row having to do with murderous head-cases. Yowza!

It’s Friday. What are you listening to?
