Random 10, 5/21/10

Bird Dog The Everly Brothers
Po' Lazarus James Carter & The Prisoners
Sweet & Slow Fats Waller
Death Or Glory The Clash
One Love Bob Marley & The Wailers
Here Comes The Flood Peter Gabriel
Snowball Hoagy Carmichael
Just A Girl No Doubt
Old Man Randy Newman
Stranger In The House Elvis Costello & The Attractions

Not a bad list, not the greatest I've ever put up. The oldest song on the list is ironically the most recently released, the prison work song Po' Lazarus from the movie O Brother Where Art Thou? The recording of Here Comes The Flood is from this century, and Peter can still hit the high notes on that song, which is remarkable. There are covers of Randy Newman's Old Man on The You Tubes, but not the original, which is a shame.

So, wadda you listenin' to?
