Random Ten

All the cool people do random song shuffles on their weblogs, so I'm going to as well. I have a pretty heterogenous library, so it could be interesting, although probably not.

01. The Royal Guardsmen, "Snoopy for President"
The Royal Guardsmen did something like four or five novelty Snoopy vs. The Red Baron songs. They all sound more or less the same, but they're all fun. 6/10

02. The Smiths, "Barbarism Begins at Home"
Pretty hard-rockin' for a Smiths song. I like it. 7/10

03. Gordon Bok, Ann Muir, and Ed Tricket, "Sailor's Prayer"
Very good acapella number. 8/10

04. Flogging Molly, "Don't Let Me Die Still Wondering"
Good philosophy. Inspiring song. 8/10

05. Calexico, "Corona"
Typical Calexico mariachi-type thing. Listenable, if not exactly classic. 6/10

06. Johnny Dowd, "On Shakey Ground We Stand"
A pointless reworking of "Death Comes Knocking." 5/10

07. Aesop Rock, "Daylight"
"All I ever wanted was to pick up on the day, put the pieces back together my way." Very catchy number from Mr. Rock. 9/10

08. ABBA, "The Visitors"
Not one of your first-tier ABBA songs, but it's not bad once it picks up around the two-minute mark. 5/10

09. The Tossers, "Young Ned of the Hill"
It's a great Pogues song, but this cover, while not bad in and of itself, has no reason to exist. 3/10

10. The The, "Dogs of Lust"
Scary, distorted weirdness. 8/10
