Friday random ten - TGIF

I'll get right to the point: The past couple of weeks have kicked my rear. I don't have the energy to think of anything clever to say about this latest venture into iTunes Genius-land, so I'll just jump straight into the lists. This one was based on Jeff Buckley's cover of the Leonard Cohen classic "Hallelujah", which now that I think about it makes for an appropriate theme, since that's how I feel about this being the end of the week. Here's the first ten songs of the list:

1. "Hallelujah" - Jeff Buckley
2. "There's a World" - Neil Young
3. "Atlantic City" - Bruce Springsteen
4. "Summer Skin" - Death Cab for Cutie
5. "Satellite of Love" - Lou Reed
6. "40" - U2
7. "Rock and Roll" - The Velvet Underground
8. "For Emily, Wherever I May Find Her" - Simon and Garfunkel
9. "Mercy Street" - Peter Gabriel
10. "Gloria" - Patti Smith

And as played:

1. "Hallelujah" - Jeff Buckley
2. "Summer Skin" - Death Cab for Cutie
3. "Are You Ready for Country?" - Neil Young
4. "Bad" - U2
5. "There's A World" - Neil Young
6. "Don't Give Up" - Peter Gabriel
7. "Keep Me In Your Heart" - Warren Zevon
8. "Tempted" - Squeeze
9. "Walking on Broken Glass" - Annie Lennox
10. "Planet Claire" - The B-52s

There was a girl that lived in our neighborhood when I was a kid named Claire. She hated that song in the same way that my sister Eileen hated the song "Come On Eileen". Other than that one, a whole lot of mellow in those songs. Which fits what I want from today just fine. Happy Friday, everyone.
