Friday Limey Semi-Random Ten.

I was reminded this morning that today is the one-year anniversary of the London transit bombings, and to mark that occasion I'm gonna do the same thing I did last year -- devote the Friday Random Ten to British music acts. As with last year, sorry, Irish bands not eligible. (I would've done an Irish Random Ten for St. Patrick's Day a few months ago, but it would've probably ended up being nine U2 songs with "Jump Around" thrown in there somewhere.)

Anyways . . .

1. Pet Shop Boys, "Jealousy"
2. Fatboy Slim, "Give the Po' Man a Break"
3. Pet Shop Boys, "West End Girls" (Acid House mix)
4. The Clash, "Armagideon Time"
5. Oasis, "Fuckin' in the Bushes"
6. Orbital, "Tunnel Vision"
7. Photek, "Six Feet Under Main Theme"
8. Underworld, "Born Slippy"
9. Pet Shop Boys, "We Came From Outer Space"
10. Pet Shop Boys, "Paninaro '95"

And a bonus track:

11. Gorillaz, "M1A1"

Feel free to leave a Random Ten of whatever national origin(s) in the comments.
