Friday Random 10

Whew! An easy post!

You know the drill. Take out your iPod and set it to shuffle mode. Tell us the first ten songs that appear -and no fair leaving out ones that make you look like a dork or adding in ones that make you look cool. By now you all know that I have a peculiar mixture of really, truly good music and ...well, dreck. Here's this week's list:

  • Welcome in this Place; Hillsong (Sophie, you'd like this one.)
  • Mamiya: Five Finnish Folk Songs for Cello and Piano; Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble
  • Kathy's Song; Simon & Garfunkle
  • Caught in the Crossfire; John McCutcheon
  • Viola Concerto in G (51: G9) -Allegro: Telemann via Florian Deuter
  • Born to Run; Bang!
  • My Father's Eyes; Eric Clapton
  • Leader of the Band; Dan Fogelberg
  • Ride Like the Wind; Christopher Cross
  • Empowered; David and Steve Gordon

And since I've been so boring lately, here's a bonus playlist. Riffing off someone else's idea (Sorry, I've long since forgotten whose.), I made a playlist called Sorry, Everybody -a musical apology to the world for what this country has become. Here's my list.

  • The Right Decision; World View
  • Make Up Your Mind; Orange park
  • The Great Discontent; Man on Earth
  • Who Would Jesus Bomb?: David Rovics
  • JesusLand; David Ippolito
  • Lies; Priscilla Herdman
  • Dirty Little War; Terry Tufts
  • What made America Famous>; Harry Chapin
  • Come On Home; Indigo Girls
  • Which Side Are You On?; Dick Gaughan
  • A Parcel of Rogues in a Nation; Jean Redpath
  • I AM a Patriot; Jackson Browne
  • Let's Impeach the President; Neil Young
  • Mr. President, Have Pity on the Working Man; Sam Bush
  • Oh Mary, Don't You Weep; Arlo Guthrie
  • With God On Our Side; Neville Brothers
  • Wartime Prayers; Paul Simon

It actually goes on a lot longer. I must have been really steamed when I put this one together!
