Friday Random Ten – The “A Change is Gonna Come” Edition

Whoops. A day off, and lunch with my husband, threw off my blogging rhythm today, so I forgot the Friday random ten post. I’m doing something a little different with it today, though. I’m kicking it off with a song that’s been in my head since election day. So it’s not entirely random, but here goes anyway. And if you want to mix it up a little, start yours with a song that this election brings to mind for you, and share it in the comments.

  1. Fire up your music collection.
  2. Shuffle it.
  3. Deal me ten.

Here’s mine.

  1. A Change Is Gonna Come from the album “The Man And His Music” by Sam Cooke
  2. Unconditional Love from the album “The Donna Summer Anthology (disc 2)” by Donna Summer
  3. All In Love Is Fair from the album “Innervisions” by Stevie Wonder
  4. Miss Me Blind from the album “The Very Best Of” by Culture Club
  5. Let The Good Times Roll from the album “An Evening With The Queen” by Koko Taylor
  6. Take a Bow [Edit] from the album “GHV2” by Madonna
  7. Mercy Street from the album “Shaking The Tree” by Peter Gabriel
  8. Mistake No. 3 from the album “Waking Up with the House on Fi” by Culture Club
  9. Love Train from the album “Wake Up Mix” by O’Jays
  10. Raisin’ The Stakes from the album “Goodbye Country (Hello Nightclub)” by Groove Armada

Actually, at second glance, there may be a few more titles in there that are appropriate to this year’s election. Any jump out at you?

One Comment

  1. Not owning my own collection of online tunes but rather like the notorious line from Blanche Dubois in the play A Streetcar Named Desire….
    “I always depended on the kindness of strangers…”
    …I offer my friend Kelly’s post at Blogger’s Ball with a ‘vidaliant’ list entitled….
    War. What is it good for? in honour of ‘Remembrance Day’ Nov. 11/2006

    My absolute favourites from one of my blogs hail from Marvin Gaye … please check him out there and of course with the rest uploaded at Kelly’s Blogger’s’Ball’.

    However, this day I honour you too, T. Thanks for the lessons you unwittingly taught me, and consider those potent anti-war songs linked at the ball as a reflection of my gratitude for you relentless passion to inform the ‘sheeple.’ Hugs to you and your loved ones…

    Peace T.
