Friday Random 10: because it’s been too long edition

I put the iPod on shuffle earlier this week and was struck by two things: out of 1500 songs, it came up with two Nick Drake songs off the same album; and there are all kinds of ways to be embarrassed by your musical taste.

  1. Smithereens, “A Girl Like You” (Blown to Smithereens: Best of)
  2. Nick Drake, “Things Behind the Sun” (Pink Moon)
  3. Sonic Youth, “New Hampshire” (Sonic Nurse)
  4. Nick Drake, “Place to Be” (Pink Moon)
  5. Minor Threat, “Look Back and Laugh” (Out of Step)
  6. The Byrds, “You’re Still On My Mind (rehearsal – take #43)” (Sweetheart of the Rodeo)
  7. Marvin Gaye, “You Sure Love to Ball” (Let’s Get It On)
  8. R.E.M., “Driver 8” (Fables of the Reconstruction)
  9. Pete Yorn, “For Nancy” (musicforthemorningafter)
  10. Bob Dylan, “Who Killed Davey Moore?” (The Bootleg Series: Vols. 1-3)
