For this installment of the Friday Random Ten, we're giving a shout-out to the brave souls in the United Kingdom and restricting the playlist to British musicians. (Residents of the independent Republic of Ireland, for the purposes of this exercise, are not eligible -- so, sorry, U2, Sinead O'Connor and House of Pain, we'll get to y'all next week.)
Anyway, here 'tis -- cheerio . . .
1. Sting, "If You Love Somebody Set Them Free"
2. Depeche Mode, "Walking In My Shoes"
3. Groove Armada, "Purple Haze"
4. Pet Shop Boys, "Can You Forgive Her?" (Rollo dub)
5. Happy Mondays, "Lazyitis"
6. The Police, "Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic"
7. Pet Shop Boys, "Transparent"
8. Electronic, "Get The Message"
9. The Streets, "Let's Push Things Forward"
10. Massive Attack, "Three"
As always, feel free to throw your own ten, be they British, Irish, American, Slovakian, or whatever, in the comments (but all-Limey lists get bonus points).
