Friday Random Ten - True Love Edition 

It's Friday again. Whee! Load the MP3 player, hit random, list the first 10 on your own blog if you have one, and in the Comments/Trackback here and at the host, feministe.

  • Let's Settle Down - Vanessa Williams - Bye Bye Birdie 1995 tv soundtrack (That green stuff's grass, and that smell everywhere - do you know what that is? Fresh air!)
  • Pinball Wizard - The Who - Tommy (I love the acoustic guitar on this album) (Ironically, when you do an Amazon search in music for "Tommy," the soundtracks for both The L Word and Queer as Folk come up on the first page. They're on the Tommy Boy label.)
  • You Don't Know Me - Eva Cassidy & Chuck Brown- The Other Side (I love this song, especially when Meryl Streep sang it in Postcards From the Edge. I can strum out a fair rendition on my now long-neglected guitar. Perhaps this summer...)
  • Your Tongue Like the Sun In My Mouth - Sophie B. Hawkins - Timbre (Oh my. I'll have what she's having.)
  • The Man In the Moon - Bea Arthur - Mame 1966 Original Broadway Cast (this is my least favorite song from Mame. I much prefer Bosum Buddies or It's Today)(but I love this line, regarding the discovery that the Man in the Moon is a Miss: "She winks at the stars from her bed of green cheese. That isn't a nightgown, it's a satin chemise.")
  • Permanent Summertime - Eunice Sim - Mercurix 30 160 (this track was factory preloaded on my Nomad Jukebox 2 player, and it's a winner. Sadly, it's not included on her debut CD, Stronger Than Some.)
  • Lose Your Way - Sophie B. Hawkins - Timbre (I still wish on an evening star, and I s'pose I always will)
  • I Want To Be Happy - Jack Gilford, Susan Watson - No, No Nanette 1971 Broadway Revival Cast (Life's really worth living when you are mirth-giving. Why can't I give some to you?)
