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.
