Random 10, 6/25/10

Who Was That Man? Nick Lowe
Adagio: Concierto De Aranjuez (Rodrigo) Zoltan Tokos and the Budapest Strings
Temptation Elvis Costello & the Attractions
Shamed Into Love Elvis Costello & Bill Frisell
Baltimore Randy Newman
Twisting They Might Be Giants
Keep On Walking Spanic Boys
Shock The Monkey Peter Gabriel
Come Dancing The Kinks
Go Now The Moody Blues

Does this Random 10 come from the computer of an old person? Why yes it does, thanks for asking. It's all 20th Century and only six of four can be found on the You Tubes, which makes it feel like 2007 or something.

I put up the Union Jack because six of ten songs are from British artists. The weirdest coincidence on the list is that I was singing the Spanic Boys tune to myself just this afternoon, though I haven't heard it in many a moon. Even weirder, it's one of the songs found on The You Tubes, while better known artists like Nick Lowe and Elvis Costello get shut out.

Whatchoo listenin' to?

Good list! The "Come Dancing" video and music are irresistible.
As for me--just listened to The Isley Brothers "Nobody But Me" but have to admit with guilt, I like the Human Beinz smoother version too.
