Post-Trytophan Friday Random Ten

I got up this morning still full from Thanksgiving dinner (actually, a late lunch) the day before. I put on my running shoes and sweats, had a good run, and then had some Turkey Day leftovers for breakfast. Hope everybody had a good holiday.

1. Choo Choo Ch Boogie- Asleep At the Wheel
2. Dreams Last So Long- Jewel
3. Love Hurts- Pat Boone
4. Like A Rolling Stone- Bob Dylan
5. By the Time I Get to Phoenix- Glen Campbell
6. Anarchy In the UK- The Sex Pistols
7. It's a Shame About Ray- The Lemonheads
8. My Baby's Lovin' Arms- Robert Mitchum
9. The Internationale- Billy Bragg
10. Time Changes Everything- Johnny Cash

1. From Asleep At the Wheel's fabulous "Served Live" album.
2. Okay, there's at least one woman from Alaska I do like-- Jewel.
3. Yes, that "Loves Hurts." And yes, that Pat Boone. From "In a Metal Mood," a fun album he did in the 1990's of metal covers, including Crazy Train and Enter Sandman. It drew the ire of Christian fundamentalists (he a big-time Christian himself), which made me like it even more.
4. I never, ever get tired of hearing this song.
5. One of many great Jimmy Webb songs that Glen Campbell covered.
6. A couple of weeks ago, when Adam and I were seeing Blue Man Group, this song came on, and it was funny seeing the light go off when he recognized the song.
7. The Lemonheads did a great uptempo cover of Simon and Garfunkel's Mrs. Robinson.
8. From actor Robert Mitchum's calypso album. No, that's not a joke.
9. Billy Bragg's nice rewrite of "The Internationale."
10. The Brains said "Money Changes Everything." Johnny Cash says it's time. I say they're both right.

"Dreams Last so Long" is pretty good. I blogged about Jewell a while ago: she went to school near me.
