Friday Random Ten.



But first, a shout-out. Somebody on the production staff of Headline News's "Robin and Company," which I watch every morning whilst pouring coffee down my gullet, is a Pet Shop Boys fan, because just in the past couple weeks I've heard them play "Single," "I'm With Stupid," "Home and Dry," and (I think) "I Don't Know What You Want But I Can't Give It Any More" in the little bumper/teaser segments they use to segue to commercial and back. Who is this mysterious music lover? Do I dare hope that Robin Meade, one of the top five hottest news anchors ever, is a Pets fan? Whoever you are, I salute you, sir/ma'am. You're doing a service for humanity.

Anyway, the Ten:

1. Passengers, "Plot 180"
2. Smashing Pumpkins, "Bullet With Butterfly Wings"
3. Air, "Kelly Watch the Stars" (Moog Cookbook mix)
4. The Isley Brothers, "It's Your Thing"
5. DJ Shadow, "Mutual Slump"
6. Frank Sinatra, "The Very Thought of You"
7. Cee-Lo, "Childz Play"
8. The Beach Boys, "God Only Knows"
9. Pet Shop Boys, "Shopping"
10. DJ Shadow, "The Number Song"

As always, your Ten(s) are welcome in the comments.

As far as I know, Robin Meade isn't a homosexual man. So it's probably not her.

Well spoken Josh, this is one of those rare times I acknowledge your clear logic and reasoning skills.

Have you actually decided the other three of the top five hot newscasters? Theuriau is a lock at the top. Not sure about Meade, some days she looks as though she just rolled off a world class bender the night before. Not that that isn't hot in its own right if remotely true. Anywho...

I hope you wouldn't be too prejudicial regarding some of the candidates from Fox "News". Specifically one Megyn Kendall, who usually reports on the big legal case of the month. Kieran Chetry used to be on Fox, but I believe is on CNN currently. Sophie Choi? Jane Skinner maybe?

Keep on rocking in the still somewhat free world.
