Random 10+1, 5/14/10

Doo Wop (That Thing) Lauryn Hill
5ive Gears In Reverse Elvis Costello & the Attractions
Love Shack The B-52s
God's Song Randy Newman
Success Iggy Pop
Under Pressure Queen and David Bowie
Spesso Vibra Per Suo Gioco (A. Scarlatti) Cecilia Bartoli
In Dreams Roy Orbison
Waiting In Vain Bob Marley & the Wailers
99 Problems Jay-Z
Special bonus track:
The Groove Is In The Heart Deee-Lite

Recordings well spread out from the last fifty years or so. 9 out of 11 from The You Tubes, only missing a song from Get Happy!, still one of my favorites albums from The One True Living Elvis, and Cecilia Bartoli's version of the Scarlatti tune which translates to "She Often Quakes In His Game" is also not to be found. The list certainly looks random, though you could say that surrounding the real opera singer are two of the most operatic of rock stars, Roy Orbison and Freddy Mercury.

So, whatcha listening to?
