Friday Random 10

Posted by Arcane Gazebo at March 10, 2006 2:56 PM

No tarot reading this time, although I'm tempted to divine the outcome of my March Meeting talk.

  1. The Arcade Fire, "Haiti"
  2. Elliott Smith, "A Distorted Reality Is Now A Necessity To Be Free"
  3. Iron & Wine, "Free Until They Cut Me Down"
  4. Cat Power, "I Don't Blame You"
  5. Mylo, "Musclecars"
  6. Wolf Parade, "It's A Curse"
  7. Ladytron, "Cracked LCD"
  8. Belle & Sebastian, "Like Dylan In The Movies (Live Version)"
  9. Arctic Monkeys, "A Certain Romance"
  10. Feist, "Leisure Suite"
That's a pretty good set, actually. Number 11 is Sybris, "You're Only Confident In Your Insecurities", which would have been a bad one to draw if I had been doing the tarot version. Tags: Friday Random 10, Music

Here is my list of 10 songs from the playlist:

1. I Believe In You (Talk Talk)
2. Dead Elephant Dance (Chuck Lucky And The Gentlemen)
3. Not Enough Time (INXS)
4. Somebody To Love (Queen)
5. Witch Doctor [Remix] (unknown artist)
6. Devo Corporate Anthem (Devo)
7. What's Going On (Cyndi Lauper)
8. Rolling Thunder (A-Ha)
9. Vanishing (Mariah Carey)
10. Time And Again (A-Ha)


Comments:

1. Several of these songs are from the 80s, which should be no surprise. (And if it is, pay attention!)

2. A-Ha is a two-hit wonder (with a couple other songs being known, such as "The Living Daylights" as the theme to the eponymous film), but a lot of their work is really good (and really underappreciated). Their 90s and 00s stuff took a much darker tone than their earlier work.

3. We're all Devo.

Yeah, none of mine are from the 80s. :) The oldest one is "Cracked LCD" which is from 2002. However, "Like Dylan In The Movies" was first recorded in 1996 (but that live version is from last year).
