Friday Random Ten – The “On the Move” Edition

Moving madness is upon us. The movers arrive on Monday (it’s easier to move when the kid’s in daycare for the day, and we’ve already explained to him that we’re moving into the new house in a few days so it won’t phase him). In the meantime we’re packing and moving over some of the more fragile items. I’ll be at the house this evening, in hopes that Comcast will get our internet access hooked up before we move in.

In the meantime, there’s still time to send in guesses on the music meme post. I’ve filled in the songs that were correctly guess, and will fill in the rest sometime tonight. Here’s another Friday Random Ten. Here are the rules if you wanna play.

  1. Turn on your MP3 player.
  2. Put all your stuff on random.
  3. List the first 10 songs.

And here’s mine.

  1. Sing Your Life from the album “The Best of Morrissey” by Morrissey
  2. Electric Avenue from the album “Killer on the Rampage” by Eddy Grant
  3. Shake Ya Ass from the album “Farmclub.Com – Live & Unreleased” by Mystikal
  4. The Last of the Famous International Playboys from the album “The Best of Morrissey” by Morrissey
  5. Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me from the album “Singles” by The Smiths
  6. With One Look (From “Sunset Boulevard”) from the album “Back to Broadway” by Barbra Streisand
  7. Mad World from the album “Tears Roll Down (Greatest Hits 82-92)” by Tears For Fears
  8. Fire And Rain from the album “Play Mode” by Randy Crawford
  9. Peace Train from the album “Greatest Hits” by Cat Stevens
  10. Train In Vain from the album “Medusa” by Annie Lennox

More Morrisey that I expected in a random mix, but that’s what came up. What’s in yours?


  1. Congratulations on the house and move!

  2. 1. Easy Plateau by Ryan Adams & The Cardinals from Cold Roses.
    2. No Children by The Mountain Goats from Tallahassee
