Friday Random Ten

I love a man in a uniform

Well, after two very special Friday Random Tens, it's back to a boring old "Annamaria hates her job so much it makes her want to cry" edition. Hopefully, next week will be the "Annamaria sent her resume to Jen, who promptly found her a fabulous new job in Chicago" edition. Much as I love Detroit (as evidenced by the two Detroit artists on this week's list), if I don't get out of here soon, I'm going to slit my wrists. And you know how much I hate undignified displays of emotion like that. Anyway, enough of my bitching, you all know the rules, and I know you've been waiting all week for this.

  1. Insects Rule - Brendan Benson
  2. Cry to Me - Solomon Burke
  3. Me, Myself and I - De La Soul
  4. Revolution Rock - The Clash
  5. My Baby Loves the Secret Agent - Detroit Cobras
  6. Girl Anachronism - Dresden Dolls
  7. Goodbye Yellow Brick Road - Elton John
  8. Feel the Pain - Dinosaur Jr.
  9. I'm Still Drinking In My Dreams - Mike Doughty
  10. Our House - Madness

Damn, I just realized that all of these titles pretty much describe how I am feeling at this very moment...well, except for the Detroit Cobras song, because I don't think Rich has a thing for CIA chicks.

That said, it's all you, baby, show me what you got!
