Random Ten

lord, to be 33 forever …

The Call, "I Still Believe"
The Breeders, "Happiness Is a Warm Gun"
Pavement, "Summer Babe"
The Hold Steady, "Stevie Nix"
Squeeze, "Black Coffee in Bed"
Aimee Mann, "Driving Sideways"
Crowded House, "Locked Out"
Bobby Womack, "Across 110th Street"
Green, "I Know, I Know"
Bruce Springsteen, "The Rising"

That Green song is one of my favorite things in the whole world. "I Know, I Know" is kind of what "Don't Worry Baby" would've sounded like if the Beach Boys had been a punk trio from Chicago. It's from the album "Elaine MacKenzie," which you can buy on CD from No Cigar.

    There’s a stain on my notebook where your coffee cup was….
    My freshman year of college (1986), 45s and Under was one of the albums that everyone in the dorm had. The others were the Cure comp Standing om a Beach and the first Violent Femmes. (And all the guys had Licensed to Ill.)

    You have one of my favorite songs that I never would have heard if not for Quentin Tarantino: “Across 110th Street.”
