Friday Random Ten For A New Year

I worked New Year's Eve and New Year's Day back to back. They were both great shifts; my coffers are filled and my back is sore. I've been taking it easy today.

1. Darlin' Companion- Johnny Cash and June Carter
2. Patience- Lloyd Cole
3. Cleaning Windows- Van Morrison
4. Is It A Crime- Sade
5. Hayday- The Replacements
6. Jet Boy, Jet Girl- The Damned
7. Handbags and Gladrags- Rod Stewart
8. Come And Get It- Badfinger
9. Georgia- Boz Scaggs
10. Modern Love- Peter Gabriel


Notes:
1. From the "Live At San Quentin" album. Cash and his wife Carter cover a John Sebastian song.
2. From the great "Rattlesnakes" album.
3. My favorite Sade song.
4. A beautiful little number about the joys of a simple life.
5. From "Hootenanny."
6. The Damned's cover of Plastic Bertrand's classic "Ca Plane Pour Moi."
7. Chris Farlowe also did a nice version of this one (thanks Samurai Frog!)
8. Badfinger was the first group signed to the Beatles' Apple Records label. This song was written by Paul McCartney.
9. One of my favorite songs. From the "Silk Degrees" album.
10. From Peter Gabriel's first solo album, which came out in 1977.

Welcome home and Happy New Year!

Jet Boy Jet Girl...ah. Sweet. I don't think I've ever seen that juxtaposed on a list with Johnny Cash before.

Happy New year 009!

Hadn't thought about "Come and Get It" in years (warning: causes smiles to break out); Boz was big at high school dances . . .

Oorah, here's to cash in pocket!

"Handbags and Gladrags" is, hands down, the best Rod Stewart song evah. Stereophonics did an excellent cover; let me know if you want it.
