Another Friday Random Ten? Yes!

Today I asked a woman who works in my office where she came from. Croatia, it turns out. Glad I didn't ask her how Serbia was. Not that she necessarily carried ethnic grudges, but even reg'lar folks don't like to be mized up like that.

1. Squirrel Nut Zippers--Bad Businessman
2. Charlie Parker--East of the Sun (and West of the Moon.)
3. Todd Rundgren--Breathless
4. David Bowie--What in the World?
5. Empress--It's Not All It's Cracked Up to Be
6. The Fiery Furnaces--Lost at Sea
7. Taj Mahal--Sweet Mama Janisse
8. The New Pornographers--Challengers
9. Sarah Vaugan--Key Largo
10. D'Oyly Carge Opera Company--The Sun Whose Rays Are all Ablaze*

* Recited by one of the noir teens in the movie Brick, which demonstrates good taste.

Gotta say, Brad Bramish is a funny side-character. I won't spoil why.
