Random 10, 5/28/10

Honeysuckle Rose Fats Waller
Shot With His Own Gun Elvis Costello & the Attractions
Gold Interference
Promised Land Spanic Boys
Up A Lazy River Hoagy Carmichael
Hang On St. Christopher Tom Waits
Down On The Riverbed Los Lobos
Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It) Beyoncé
Under Your Spell/Standing (Reprise) Amber Benson and Anthony Stewart Head
You Can't Hurry Love Diana Ross & the Supremes

Yet another Random 10 that has songs from my top three singer/songwriter heroes, Fats Waller, Elvis Costello and Tom Waits. The oldest song on the list was recorded before my mom was born (the Hoagy Carmichael tune) and there are three from the 21st Century, with Sasha Fierce, a song from the Buffy musical and Gold from the movie Once. The most obscure song is the only one that doesn't show up on the You Tubes, a song by the father and son rockabilly duo Spanic Boys.

So, whatcha listenin' to?

This is OT but I see that none of your tabloids predicted that Gary Coleman would pass away. I just saw the news on Yahoo. I feel sorry for him - he seems to have lived a very unhappy and tormented life.

Actually, a prediction of his death was published in the Enquirer back in February, so this is the first hit of the year for the tabs.
