Friday Random 10: iPod blues redux

My iPod is getting increasingly flaky. In addition to spontaneous reboots it also occasionally refuses to sync, indicating that the disc couldn’t be read to or written from. The middle of a kitchen renovation is a bad time for any small electronics purchase that doesn’t also crush ice, so I’ll have to live with it for a while longer, I guess.

Besides, it still works for the Random 10. Lots of Elvis Costello still on the iPod from his appearance last week at Tanglewood with Marian McPartland.

  1. Boston Camerata, “Thomas-Town” (New Britain)
  2. Elvis Costello, “Brilliant Mistake” (King of America)
  3. Elvis Costello, “Just About Glad” (Costello and Nieve)
  4. Radiohead mashed with Ghostface, “Daytona 500” (Me and This Army)
  5. Elvis Costello, “They Didn’t Believe Me” (Marian McPartland’s Piano Jazz with Elvis Costello)
  6. Elvis Costello, “Temptation” (Costello and Nieve)
  7. Clifton Chenier, “Jole Blonde” (Bon Ton Roulet)
  8. Elvis Costello, “Baby Plays Around” (Spike)
  9. Don Cherry and John Coltrane, “The Invisible” (The Avant-Garde)
  10. Nouvelle Vague, “Dancing with Myself” (Bande A Part)
