Mostly mellow Friday Random Ten

1. Ry Cooder--Smack Dab in the Middle
2. Charlie Parker--Out of Nowhere
3. Sonic Youth--I'm Insane
4. Scissor Sisters--Lights
5. Bob Dylan--Shelter From the Storm
6. Howlin' Wolf--Spoonful
7. Julie London--Sway
8. Isobel Campbell & Mark Lanegan--(Do You Wanna) Come Walk With Me?
9. Talking Heads--Cities
10. Mimi & Richard Fariña--Pack Up Your Sorrows

Starting off with Ry's treatment of an R&B standard, going back at least to Count Basie's band. Love the "open up the door to Fort Knox."
