Friday Random Ten – The “Groping Bush” Mix

It’s been another strange week of high traffic to a rather odd post. I’m not sure what to make of it, though it seems to be a pattern around here (one that I might post about later). While I’m sorting that out, it’s time for another random ten.

Wanna play along?

  1. Grab your iPod or MP3 player.
  2. Shuffle the whole collection.
  3. Show us you first ten.

Here’s mine.

  1. This Charming Man from the album “Singles” by The Smiths
  2. I’ll Rise (live) by Ben Harper
  3. Lucky Star from the album “The Immaculate Collection” by Madonna
  4. The Boys Of Summer from the album “Heaven” by DJ Sammy
