The Two Weeks in and a Day Late Saturday Random Ten

I just finished my second week as an official working nurse. I've got some reflections on that coming. But for now, I've got to get my Friday Random Ten posted, a day late.

1. Telstar- The Tornadoes
2. Welfare Mothers- Neil Young
3. Deep Purple- Nino Tempo and April Stevens
4. Baby Love- The Supremes
5. Yellow Submarine- The Beatles
6. 1969- The Stooges
7. All-American Alien Boy- Ian Hunter
8. Hejira- Joni Mitchell
9. Come On Eileen- Dexy's Midnight Runners
10. Right Place Wrong Time- Dr. John

1. I heard on the radio a few months ago that the Beatles were not the first British group to have a #1 hit in the United States; it was this group with this one-hit wonder.
2. Love this rocker from "Rust Never Sleeps."
3. A sweet little one hit wonder from a brother and sister duo.
4. One of the many great Motown hits written by the fabled Holland-Dozier-Holland songwriting team.
5. Hey, they had to let Ringo sing sometimes, right?
6. Is 1969 okay, all across the USA?
7. Gotta add seeing Ian Hunter in concert to my bucket list.
8. The title track to one of my desert-island albums
9. This one-hit wonder might have been followed by other hits if singer Kevin Rowland wasn't such a dick.
10. One of many great songs put to good use on the "Dazed and Confused" soundtrack.

If you've just finished your second week, have you received your first pay check yet! I really like your list. Nino Tempo and April Stevens may have only had one #1 hit, but they had a few top 10's as well. They were brother and sister!
Hope you are doing well and enjoying the work...

I discovered the brother and sister part when I researched the song for a "one-hit wonder" post! She was pretty hot, wasn't she? I've actually collected a few paychecks-- they paid us through training. The bonus of finishing training is that they have no qualms about overtime. I'll have 40 hours of overtime (time and a half) on this check, which will close to double my check, even after money for child support and benefits is taken out.

I've had a strong craving to listen to Joni Mitchell lately. You've reminded me that I must dig out some of her albums!

I love 1969. The Stooges were so raw and wonderful. What a lovely eclectic mix this is.
