[BTW, I'm going to be doing Random 10 posts on Monday until the end of the year due to my work schedule. For Friday Random 10 lists, go visit Padre Mickey.]
Dimming Of The Day Bonnie Raitt
Castles Made Of Sand Jimi Hendrix Experience
Baby I Need Your Loving The Four Tops
You Can't Hurry Love Diana Ross & The Supremes
Lucky Ball and Chain They Might Be Giants
Bad Girl Smokey Robinson & The Miracles
Only You Yaz
The Seventh Son Mose Allison
They All Laughed Fred Astaire
Brick Ben Folds Five
I got all grumpy in the comments section over at Padre Mickey's for someone posting a Random 10 with no song recorded after Nixon left office, but I barely did better myself this week. Even the first artists on the list who started recording after I left high school, They Might Be Giants, sound an awful lot like Rick Nelson during his country period on this track. I do still love the Yaz tune, one of the best things to come out of syntho-pop and I like the change-up triple play at the end, Mose to Fred to Ben.
Bonus Track: Under Pressure Queen and David Bowie
I felt the Ben Folds tune was good, but I wanted to quit with a song with a little more beat, so in come Freddie and David and that great bass line. Someone should sample that and make a rap tune. It could be a hit even if the guy can't rap.
Oops, too late.
