Sunday Random 10

Wonder if the little green Nano can pull up some tunes to melt the snow that's gotta go.


Adele - I'll Be Waiting
The Rascals - It's Wonderful
Mavis Staples - Wonderful Savior
Alice Cooper - Elected
David Bowie - Valentine's Day
Dan Zanes - The E-Ri-E Canal
Jeremy Messersmith - Repo Man
U2 - All Because of You
Dar Williams - Are You Out There
The Magnetic Fields - You're My Only Home

The Zanes tune is most definitely NOT the "Erie Canal" they taught you in school. Can't find the Zanes version on YouTube, so this'll have to suffice. And if you don't have Dan Zanes' wonderful Parades and Panoramas album, what are you still doing here? The Bowie tune's from the new record, which is quite good.

We now return you to This Week's Discussion Question ("Really, Sixth District? Really?"), already in progress.
