Random ten for the iCross

Apparently, this is what the cool kids are doing.

Ten random songs with Jesus in the title:

"Personal Jesus" by Johnny Cash from the album American IV: The Man Comes Around (2002, 3:20).
"Jesus Met the Woman at the Well" by Dave Van Ronk from the album Sunday Street (5:38).
"Jesus Christ" by Woody Guthrie & Cisco Houston from the album The Greatest Songs of Woody Guthrie (1972, 2:25).
"Jesus, etc." by Wilco from the album Yankee Hotel Foxtrot (2002, 3:51).
"Jesus Doesn't Want Me For A Sunbeam" by Nirvana from the album MTV Unplugged in New York (1994, 4:37).
"When Jesus Calls Again" by Joseph Spence from the album The Spring Of Sixty-Five (1965, 2:48).
"Jesus" by The Velvet Underground from the album The Velvet Underground (1969, 3:23).

"Jesus the Mexican Boy" by Iron And Wine from the album The Sea and the Rhythm (2003, 4:56).

Amanda's list is not formulated in this way, but she doesn't understand the sheer power of randomly selected songs.

And since it's Veterans' Day, 10 not altogether random songs for and about soldiers.

"The Soldiering Life" by The Decemberists from the album Her Majesty (2003, 3:48).
"Song Of A Soldier" by Phil Ochs from the album Farewells & Fantasies (4:05).

"The Unknown Soldier" by The Doors from the album Waiting For The Sun (3:25).
"Sixteen Military Wives" by The Decemberists from the album Picaresque (2005, 4:52).
"I Fought in a War" by Belle & Sebastian from the album Fold Your Hands Child, You Walk Like A Peasant (2000, 4:10).
