Sunday Random 10

It's Sunday and you know what that means? (We mean besides the Twins blowing the final game of a series instead of sweeping.)

It's time to see what the little green Nano's going to cough up! Let's... Hit...Shuffle!!!

The Replacements - Gary's Got a Boner
Los Lobos - La Bamba
The Beatles - I Need You
Laura Nyro and Labelle - I Met Him on a Sunday
Talking Heads - Love -> Building on Fire
Rufus Thomas - Walkin' the Dog
Peter Holsapple & Chris Stamey - Some of the Parts
Over the Rhine - Born
Dan Zanes - California
Kristina Train - I Can't But Help

Interesting mix. Once again, if you don't already have that Laura Nyro and Labelle album Gonna Take a Miracle, it's less than eight bucks here. Go! We are also huge fans of the Dan Zanes record, which is so loose and fun it made Springsteen's Seeger Sessions disc seem like a dull lecture.

We now return you to This Week's Discussion Question, already in progress.

Peter Wolf (w/Neko Case) - The Green Fields of Summer

This Is How We Do It

Here's This Week's Discussion Question:
Isn't this beautiful?
Please keep the discussion civil and do feel free to wander off into "Da da da da da" or "All together now!"

What the World Needs Now, Vol. 41110

Since she didn't show up in today's random 10, here's This Week's Discussion Question:
Why is anyone still watching American Idol?
Please keep the discussion civil, but for cryin' out loud, people, if you want a new singer who came out of obscurity, there isn't a better story than a funky, gritty, 50-something former Rikers Island corrections officer fronting a top-notch soul band.

And if you want to watch competition, baseball season just started.


Sunday Random 10

It's Sunday again! Let's see what the little green Nano has to offer this week.


The Beatles - Lonesome Tears in My Eyes
The New Standards - Maps
The Rascals - Lonely Too Long
Miles Davis - Blue in Green
XTC - Ball and Chain
The Who - Substitute
Van Morrison - Brown Eyed Girl
Kirsty MacColl - Can't Stop Killing You
The Pogues - If I Should Fall from Grace with God
Patty Griffin - Carry Me

Cool. Something from the newly-acquired Beatles "Live at the B.B.C." and the title track from one of our Desert Island albums.
