Friday Random Ten – The “Name This Mix” Edition

It’s that time again. I’m not sure why I started doing this meme again every Friday, but it feels like a good idea lately; a nice, light way to start the last day of the week before getting into anything serious. The only problem is I’m running out of context-driven subtitles for these posts. So this one is officially “you name it.” Is there a context that fits all the songs? Or do they fit into some context of what’s been going on this week in the news?

I don’t know. I’m asking.

  1. Fire up the MP3 player
  2. Randomize
  3. Gimme ten

Here’s what I got.

  1. Boogie Oogie Oogie from the album “Greatest Disco Groups” by A Taste Of Honey
  2. Love Is a Stranger from the album “Ultimate Collection” by Eurythmics
  3. Looking for a New Love from the album “Sounds of the Eighties: Rockin’ 80’s” by Jody Watley
  4. Ode to Billy Joe by Bobby Gentry
  5. Do You Miss Me from the album “Fired Up!” by Jocelyn Enriquez
  6. I Know It’s Gonna Happen Someday from the album “The Best of Morrissey” by Morrissey
  7. Alla That’s All Right, But from the album “Breaths” by Sweet Honey In The Rock
  8. Last Dance from the album “Divas Of Dance (Disco Nights Volume 1)” by Various Artists
  9. The Humpty Dance from the album “Old School Rap” by Digital Underground
  10. I’m Not Worried At All from the album “18” by Moby

I’m not sure what to call it. But I do have a favorite line from one of the songs listed above: “Somebody come and carry me into a seven day kiss…” (That’ll have to wait until I get home, tho’.)

And after writing this post, I just let iTunes keep playing and the next song that came up was Someday from the album “No One Is Alone” by Laurie Beecham. The lyrics? Well, I can’t pick a favorite line, but right about now it seems appropriate to post the whole song.

SOMEDAY

Music by Alan Menken

Lyrics by Stephen Schwartz

SOMEDAY

WHEN WE ARE WISER

WHEN THE WORLD’S OLDER

WHEN WE HAVE LEARNED

I PRAY

SOMEDAY WE MAY YET LIVE

TO LIVE AND LET LIVE

SOMEDAY

LIFE WILL BE FAIRER

NEED WILL BE RARER

GREED WILL NOT PAY

SOME SAY

THAT’S JUST A DREAM THAT WE’LL

NEVER FEEL

MAKE IT REAL

SOMEDAY

SOMEDAY

FEAR WON’T DIVIDE US

LIARS WON’T GUIDE US

MESSIAHS WILL STAY

GOD SPEED

THIS BRIGHT MILLENIUM

ON ITS WAY

LET IT COME

SOMEDAY

THERE ARE SOME DAYS DARK AND BITTER

SEEMS WE HAVEN’T GOT A PRAYER

BUT A PRAYER FOR SOMEDAY BETTER

IS THE ONE THING WE ALL SHARE

SOMEDAY

WHEN WE ARE WISER

WHEN THE WORLD’S OLDER

WHEN WE HAVE LEARNED

SOMEDAY

MANKIND WILL BE KINDER

JUSTICE BLINDER

SOMEDAY

OUR FIGHT WILL BE WON THEN

THAT BRIGHT AFTERNOON

TILL THEN

ON DAYS WHEN THE SUN IS GONE

WE’LL HANG ON

WISH UPON THE MOON

CHANGE WILL COME

ONE DAY

SOMEDAY

SOON.

Someday. Right?
