Friday random ten (on Saturday)

I know. Most bloggers do this on Friday. But not Orac. So join Orac as he fires up iTunes on Shuffle Play and lists the first ten songs that appear:
  1. David Bowie, Running Gun Blues (from The Man Who Sold the World)
  2. The Allman Brothers, Statesboro Blues (from At Fillmore East)
  3. Wet Paint, Glass Road (from A Deadly Dose of Wylde Psych: Authentic Way Cool Sixties Artifacts)
  4. Frank Sinatra, Witchcraft (from Classic Sinatra: His Great Performances 1953-1960)
  5. Violent Femmes, Country Death Song (from Hallowed Ground)
  6. Mott the Hoople, Ballad of Mott the Hoople (March 26, 1972 - Zurich) (from The Ballad of Mott: A Retrospective)
  7. Elton John, Dan Dare (Pilot of the Future) (from Rock of the Westies)
  8. Suede (known in the U.S. as The London Suede), Sleeping Pills (from Suede)
  9. Strawberry Alarm Clock, Incense & Peppermints (from Summer Of Love Volume 2: Turn On (Mind Expansion & Signs of the Times))
  10. ...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead, Will You Smile Again for Me (from Worlds Apart)
Wow. iTunes is in an eclectic mood, sandwiching Frank Sinatra between some hardcore psychedelia and one of Violent Femmes' more bizarre songs. However, I highly recommend ...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead's Worlds Apart. It's on my short list for the best of 2005.
