Random 10, 6/18/10

Night Rally Elvis Costello & the Attractions
Dinah Fats Waller
River Deep, Mountain High Anne Lennox
The Homeland Song The Mysterious Voices of Bulgaria
Christmas Must Be Tonight The Band
Living Hell Spanic Boys
You Belong to Me Vonda Shepard
A Town Called Malice The Jam
I Have Not Been To Oxford Town David Bowie
It's My Fault, Darling Professor Longhair

Everything here is from last century, but I will still defend it. Some mighty fine tunes here. Okay, the Vonda Shepard is a little corny and a cover version, but Anne Lennox also does a cover version, and it takes some fortitude to cover Tina Turner, but she does a bang up job. I was close to invoking the Padre Mickey rule when The Jam show up with one of their tip-top A-#1 tunes, but I'm also fond of the songs by Bowie and Fess that complete the ten.

Whatchoo listening to?
