Snowbound Friday Random Ten

Last night we finally got the snow they'd been they'd been threatening all day. Bet you west coast transplants don't miss that.

1. Dr. Feelgood- Aretha Franklin
2. Blue Angel- Roy Orbison
3. Star of Bethlehem- Neil Young
4. Greensboro Woman- Townes Van Zandt
5. Melting In the Sun- INXS
6. Higher Ground- Stevie Wonder
7. Greystone Chapel- Johnny Cash
8. Forever Young- Johnny Cash
9. Memories Can't Wait- The Talking Heads
10. Funk #49- The James Gang

1. I grew up listening to my dad's copy of Aretha Franklin's greatest hits. She still sounds great.
2. Roy Orbison had one of the most amazing voices ever. This song was a great showcase for it.
3. From American Stars and Bars.
4. Van Zandt was a late life discovery for me.
5. From "The Swing," an album I just about wore out the summer of 1984.
6. I like the Red Hot Chili Peppers' cover of this one too.
7. Johnny Cash' great song of redemption from his "Live At San Quentin" album.
8. Cash covering his friend Bob Dylan's song. From the Cash box set.
9. "There's a party in my mind/And I hope it never stops..."
10. The James Gang was Joe Walsh' pre-Eagles band.

If only all that snow was melting in the sun! We got hit on Friday and actually left work early which happens rarely. We're getting more of the white stuff today and then on Christmas Eve if the weather bastards are right. Should we head for higher ground?

I am one of the world's greatest INXS fans. I know. I'm a dork.
