It’s that time again! I’m bringing back something from my old, regular blogging days of the mid-aughts: the Friday Random Ten. I don’t remember who started this tradition, but a bunch of us Philly bloggers would bring this around every Friday. The basic rules are:
- fire up your digital music player
- go to “all songs“ and shuffle play everything
- note the first 10 songs to show up, without skipping anything
- create your playlist
Today’s Friday Random Ten, brought to you by missing last week’s 10 because I was presenting at a conference.
- “Closer to Free” – The Bodeans, Go Slow Down
- “The Crystal Ship” – The Doors, The Doors
- “DOUBLEDISC” – ToadOfSky, STARWRLD
- “Auf Achse” – Franz Ferdinand, Franz Ferdinand
- “Spreading Wings” – Gabriel Yared, City of Angels: Music from the Motion Picture
- “I Want to Break Free” – The Protomen, Present: a Night of Queen
- “Achilles Last Stand” – Led Zeppelin, Presence
- “Mother, Stop Being Ridiculous” – Draco and the Malfoys, Party Like You're Evil!
- “I Know Things Now” – Original Cast Recording, Into the Woods
- “Genesis” – Zombie Hyperdrive, Hyperion
Artists I’ve seen live: Draco and the Malfoys, The Protomen, ToadOfSky
Stuff I’ve kinda seen live: I didn’t see this production of Into the Woods, but I have seen quite a few various productions over the years, both professional and community theater.
Favorite track on the list: probably “I Want to Break Free” because witnessing The Protomen do an entire show of Queen covers was 100% amazing. But also: “DOUBLEDISC” because I can’t not favorite my brother’s music.
Least favorite track on the list: “Achilles Last Stand” as I am not in a Led Zeppelin mood today.
Problematic: I absolutely still love wizard rock, and going to those shows (and putting one on myself!) fills me with happy nostalgia. However, fuck J.K.
