Random 10, 11/15/09


So They Say Ensemble
99 Problems Jay-Z
When You're Mind's Made Up Glenn Hansard and Markéta Irglová
Raspberry Beret Prince
Breaking Us In Two Joe Jackson
Rockin' In The Free World Neil Young
The Worst Pies In London Angela Lansbury
Bluebird Buffalo Springfield
September Gurls Big Star
Town Called Malice The Jam

The Random 10 started out on my Purchased list instead of the regular list, so we start with a song from Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, then to Jay-Z and then to a song from Once. After three shots from the 21st Century, we go back to the standard iTunes list from an old person.

Nice to hear from The Jam and Joe Jackson. Neil Young shows up twice, though the Buffalo Springfield song is written and sung by Stephen Stills. Rockin' In The Free World is recorded more than twenty years after Neil started in the business, and that raggedy old bastid can still rock it. Angela Lansbury shows up as a major change-up from the rock stuff, but that isn't always bad, is it?

The only way I went ten for ten on The You Tubes is by finding a version of Raspberry Beret that Prince's record company hasn't scrubbed away. It's two girls in their kitchen dancing like goofballs while the song plays. It sounds like someone is also watching TV in the living room. I think it's pretty cute.

Have a good Sunday.
