Friday Random Ten

Since I have a Friday morning class, I stopped my once a week lunch shift at the Evanston restaurant. Somehow, my schedule is still crazy. I managed to get my Friday Random Ten in though.

1. Too Many Martyrs- Phil Ochs
2. The Hurt- The Pretenders
3. Love Shack- The B-52's
4. Rock and Roll Junkie- Herman Brood and His Wild Romance
5. Soul Kiss- The dB's
6. She Loves My Automobile- ZZ Top
7. Here Comes Santa Claus- Elvis Presley
8. Ballad of Billy the Kid- Billy Joel
9. King of the World- The Old 97s
10. Four Strong Winds- Ian and Sylvia

1. This is Phil Ochs' song about the casualties of the sixties. It's sadly ironic that he ended up being one of the last of them, in a way.
2. I love early Pretenders.
3. Another one from the great Cosmic Thing album.
4. Remember this one in 1979?
5. From "Repercussion," the dBs' first album.
6. From Deguello, one of my favorite albums.
7. Hey, Christmas can be a little early for Elvis, can't it be?
8. Okay, I like me some Billy Joel. Is it a crime?
9. Love these guys. My friend Chuck Uchida produced one of their albums.
10. The first time I heard this one was Neil Young's nice cover of this on "Comes A Time." This is the original, and I love this one too.

I love some Billy Joel also, have you seen the play Movin Up, based on his music? It is way cool.

Are you ever up here anymore? I've been there a few times recently, but no Mr. Yen. Darn good beer, though!
