Random Friday 10

March comes in like a lion this year, though admittedly, a declawed and rather mangy one. But there was rain and wind and snow yesterday, and today, there is actual snow on the ground! possibly for the first time this winter! This is not normal, and undoubtedly bodes ill for the rest of the year's weather...

That doesn't have much to do with Friday music posts, but I thought I'd mention it. I could also mention Davy Jones' passing - The Monkees were never a central part of my life, but always there - a fun TV show with music, when I was a kid, more than enough reason to watch it. And the songs they sang were, let's face it - top shelf. Pre- or not, they were surely fab.

Anyway - this is still mostly random...

1. Pere Ubu - Stormy Weather [not completely random, maybe...]
2. Pavement - Sue Me Jack
3. MIssion of Burma - Einstein's Day
4. Pere Ubu - I Wanna be Your Dog [live, the Laughner days...]
5. Gram Parsons & Flying Burrito Brothers - Thousand Dollar Wedding
6. Consonant - Love & Affection
7. Bright Eyes - We Are Nowhere and It's Now
8. The Beatles - Mean Mr. Mustard
9. The Open Mind - Magic Potion [another Mojo collection here...]
10. The Polyphonic Spree - Wig in a Box [from the celebrity tribute album version of Hedwig and the Angry Inch...]

And video? Monkees, obviously -

The TV intro...

And - for good measure - Mickey singing, too...
