King Nerd Once More

My random ten songs from iTunes:

One After 909” by The Beatles from the album Let It Be (1970, 2:51).

Little Moses” by The Carter Family.

Number 12 Train” by Josh White from the album Free & Equal Blues.

God (Interlude)” by Outkast from the album Speakerboxxx/The Love Below (2003, 2:19).

Jugband Blues” by Pink Floyd from the album A Saucerful of Secrets (1968, 2:58).

The Fletcher Memorial Home” by Pink Floyd from the album The Final Cut (1983, 4:12).

Where I End and You Begin. (The Sky Is Falling In.)” by Radiohead from the album Hail to the Thief (2003, 4:31).

Why Does The Sun Shine?” by Tom Glazer & Dottie Evans from the album Space Songs.

Clementine” by Tom Lehrer from the album An Evening Wasted With Tom Lehrer (1959, 4:40).

Winter Song” by Tom Paxton from the album Heroes (1978, 2:36).

No editing. No extra weighting by rating. What freakish mind would put those all together?

I mean, I think Myers' list would sound good together, albeit parrots and eye patches would feel out of place, but this is too much. Radiohead and obscure educational songs later covered by They Might Be Giants? No. The Carter Family and Outkast? No. Tom Lehrer, Tom Paxton and Pink Floyd? No, no, a thousand times No.

I am who I am.
