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 that feeling of confidence you get when you cross off a bunch of items on your to-do list.
- “Cruel Minor Change” — Beulah, The Coast is Never Clear
- “It’s No Game (Part 2)” — David Bowie, Scary Monsters
- “Smarkatch” — Gogol Bordello, Multi Kontra Culti vs. Irony
- “Reason to Believe” — Dashboard Confessional, Dusk and Summer
- “Spin Spin Sugar” — Sneaker Pimps, Becoming X
- “Out to Dry” — Live, Birds of Pray
- “Wailing Wall” — Young Galaxy, Daytrotter Session: July 12, 2007
- “I Don’t Know” — Beastie Boys, Hello Nasty
- “Trendy” — Reel Big Fish, Turn the Radio Off
- “The Defense” — Bad Religion, The Process of Belief
Artists I’ve seen live: Gogol Bordello, Beastie Boys, Reel Big Fish
Favorite track on the list: “Spin Spin Sugar”, although my old brain was convinced this came out while I was in high school, but no. It was my freshman year of college.
Least favorite track on the list: I have nothing against Dashboard Confessional — I just am not a fan as much as I am other bands — so sadly it falls to “Reason to Believe” today.
