Random 10

Forgot to do this yesterday.

The Chalet Lines” by Belle & Sebastian from the album Fold Your Hands Child, You Walk Like A Peasant (2000, 2:33).
No. 13 Baby” by Pixies from the album Doolittle (2003, 3:50).
Welcome To The Occupation” by R.E.M. from the album Document (1987, 2:48).
I Will Run After You” by Frank Black and the Catholics from the album Black Letter Days (2002, 2:12).
North Country Blues” by Bob Dylan from the album The Times They Are A-Changin' (1963, 4:34).
Jesu, Joy Of Man's Desiring” by Jacques Loussier from the album The Bach Book (4:36).
Fighting For it All” by Mindy Smith from the album One Moment More (2004, 3:19).
Walking Down Death Row” by Pete Seeger from the album Dangerous Songs!? (1966, 3:44).
“Has He Got A Friend For Me” by Richard & Linda Thompson from the album I Want To See The Bright Lights Tonight (1974, 3:34).
Roadhouse Blues” by The Doors from the album Morrison Hotel (1970, 4:05).
Mean iTunes rating: 3.5 stars.

The last two present a very odd juxtaposition. You imagine that Jim Morrison was not the sort of friend Linda Thompson is looking for.

These sound especially nice on the shmancy iMac I came into possession of recently. You can get a lot more bass and depth of sound out of a full sized computer than a 12" laptop.
