Friday Random Ten

I Heart Ted Leo

Ugh. I'm sick. My head hurts and I'm tired and I just want to go home and sleep. But, instead, I'm at work, hating all of my co-workers without headaches and fucked up sinuses, and seriously considering a career in telemarketing or something, so that no one can fault me for hating my job so much. Of course, I could find a job that I don't hate, but then what would I complain about?

You know what I don't hate, though? The Friday Random Ten. Mostly because it happens on Fridays, and Fridays mean weekends, and weekends mean sleep. My list this week is a little strange--I'm in the midst of transferring all of my mp3s from one program to another, and managed to weed out all of the shit that got on there when I wasn't looking (translation: all of the songs I'm embarrassed to own). So, most of this is either stuff I downloaded this week, or songs that I simply cannot live without (See Roxy Music. See a happy Annamaria).

  1. The Man in Black - Johnny Cash
  2. Dry Drunk Emperor - TV on the Radio
  3. svefn g englar - Sigur Ros
  4. Cold Wind - The Arcade Fire
  5. Cash Machine - Hard-Fi
  6. Breathe Me - Sia
  7. Hummingbird (live) - Wilco
  8. Avalon - Roxy Music
  9. The Angels' Share - Ted Leo & The Pharmacists
  10. Seagulls Screaming Kiss Her, Kiss Her - XTC

You know what to do.

I missed out last week because I was very busy with work and leaving early. But here are the rules to make your list

Anna, if you're looking, Gene Autry by Beulah was playing as I started typing this. Thanks again for turning me on to them. Check out this Austin band:
Download or listen to the song Emperor. It is very cool.
