The Calm Before The Storm Friday Random Ten

I've got just a few days of break before summer school starts-- Anatomy 2. I've got an orientation for the nursing program on June 8, and I have to take a CPR course before school starts in the fall. It's going to be a busy summer.

1. Season of the Witch- Donovan
2. Girls- Iggy Pop
3. Hey St. Peter- Flash and the Pan
4. Wasn't Born To Follow- The Byrds
5. Ambition- Vic Godard and the Subway Sect
6. Puff the Magic Dragon- Peter, Paul and Mary
7. Are You Ready To Be Heartbroken?- Lloyd Cole and the Commotions
8. Kiss and Say Goodbye- The Manhattans
9. Don't Worry Baby- The Beach Boys
10. Can't Hardly Wait- The Replacements

1. One of Donavan's many hits in the sixties.
2. The Ig's got a new album out-- I'm eager to hear it.
3. Two former members of the Easybeats ("Friday On My Mind") did this one. I remember hearing it all the time my senior year of high school.
4. Heard this one on Little Steven's Underground Garage yesterday as well
5. From the "No Thanks!" collection of seventies punk and new wave
6. A lot of folks thought this song was about drugs, but even the most cursory listening reveals it to be about a child growing up.
7. I love me some Lloyd Cole!
8. Okay, I'm busted-- a guilty pleasure from the seventies.
9. I love the Beach Boys in general, but this is probably my favorite Beach Boys song.
10. My second-favorite band from the eighties, after the Clash.

"Can't Hardly Wait" is a great song, but "Alex Chilton" might be my favorite Replacements song. It's even peppier.

Awesome mix. I love the Iggy.

Breathe now. While you can.
