Random Tens

Thursday is a day of labs, not blogging. Here are some random songs for you.

"Rock & Roll" by The Velvet Underground from the album Loaded (1970, 4:45).
"This Night" by Destroyer from the album This Night (2002, 5:57).
"Girlfriend Is Better" by Talking Heads from the album Stop Making Sense (1999, 5:06).
"Rue The Day" by The Walkmen from the album Everyone Who Pretended To Like Me Is Gone (2002, 3:37).
"All Along The Watchtower" by U2 from the album Rattle & Hum (4:24).
"That's The Way" by Tom Waits from the album The Black Rider (1993, 1:09).
"14 Years" by Guns N' Roses from the album Use Your Illusion II (1991, 4:21).
"I Must Be High" by Wilco from the album A.M. (1995, 2:59).
"Tenderly" by Willie Nelson from the album Stardust / One for the Road / Honeysuckle Rose (1978, 3:59).
"If I Loved You" by Original Broadway Cast from the album Carousel (1994, 8:22).
Things take a fairly odd twist there at the end, don't they? The first part is a nice little rock sequence, building from more alternative things to traditional rock. Then the random Willie Nelson ballad and a Broadway show tune? Whatever.
Since I won't get ten new posts up today, and regular readers haven't seen my oldies but goodies, here are posts from ten random days out of the archives.
