Time for Friday Random Ten, where you hit "shuffle" on your favorite digital music player (for me my Windows MediaPlayer at work) and report on the first ten songs that it spits out.
This week's list includes two artists loved by the Nickelodeon crowd (They Might Be Giants and Mark Mothersbaugh) and two that would probably make them cry in fear (Tom Waits and Shane MacGowan).
"On The Run" - Rose Smith (from Dawn Raiding)
"Fall Of Troy" - Tom Waits (from Dead Man Walking: Music From And Inspired By The Motion Picture)
"Story Of Love" - Buzz Of Delight (featuring Matthew Sweet) (from To Understand: The Early Recordings Of Matthew Sweet)
"Dice Behind Your Shades" - Paul Westerberg (from 14 Songs)
"No Outlet" - Juliana Hatfield (from Hey Babe)
"My Old Man" - Joni Mitchell (from Blue)
"That Woman's Got Me Drinking" - Shane MacGowan and The Popes (from The Snake)
"Wait Up" - Uncle Tupelo (from March 16-20, 1992)
"We Want A Rock" - They Might Be Giants (from Flood)
"Hardest Geometry Problem in the World" - Mark Mothersbaugh (from Rushmore: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)
