Friday Random Ten

I've noticed a bit of increased traffic from our new friends over at the cleverly named Clever Titles Are So Last Summer, and since the Friday Random Ten demands participation, I thought I'd give everyone a refresher on the rules:

Here's my list, which unfortunately isn't very random--mostly indie rock, with a pinch of Prince to liven things up. Except, of course, it's Diamonds and Pearls which isn't very lively. In fact, I don't even like that song. Of the hundreds of Prince songs I own, why is that the only one that ever shows up on this thing?

  1. King of Carrot Flowers Pt.1 (live) - Neutral Milk Hotel
  2. Confused - Lou Barlow
  3. That Was My Veil - PJ Harvey & John Parrish
  4. Small Town Shit - Hotel Lights
  5. Little Savage - Elvis Costello & The Attractions
  6. Diamonds and Pearls - Prince
  7. Road to Rock N'Roll - Joe Strummer & The Mescaleros
  8. Tiny Spark - Brendan Benson
  9. Philosophy - Ben Folds Five
  10. Life's What You Make It - Talk Talk

Your turn!
