Friday Random Ten

The Decemberists

Hey, it's Friday already! It's been an exciting week since we last did the Random Ten--Queer as Folk ended, my car got smashed up at the Meijer parking lot (that will teach me to give my money to fundies!), and I got a raise! How exciting. Actually, it's not. My raise was so miniscule that I might just be able to use it to fix my injured car.

But forget all of that--it's Rich's birthday! Happy birthday, Rich! And it's Friday, which means it's time for musical randomness. If you don't know the rules shame on you, 'cause this shit is hardly new. Here's mine: The Friday Random Ten, Happy Birthday Mark Knopfler Rich Edition!

  1. The People's Limousine - Elvis Costello & T-Bone Burnett
  2. Our Dying Brains - Grandaddy
  3. I Left My Wallet in El Segundo - A Tribe Called Quest
  4. Hounds of Love - The Futureheads
  5. Across 110th Street - Bobby Womack & Peace
  6. F the CC - Steve Earle
  7. The Mariner's Revenge Song - The Decemberists
  8. New Kicks - Le Tigre
  9. Erection - The Faint
  10. Girl Anachronism - Dresden Dolls

Your turn!

Actually, seeing as how it's your 27th birthday, in true rockstar fashion you'll most likely die before the year is up. ;)
