Personal best (for some) Friday Random Ten

One of the buses I take in the morning is sometimes driven by a woman who takes pride in knowing where all her regulars are going.  This means she doesn't like it when I ring the bell when I get to my stop.  Not that she gets really mad, but a little exasperated maybe.  So I try to remind myself not to do that.  We all have our little things.

1. Louis Armstrong - West End Blues
2. Stevie Wonder - You and I
3. Sonic Youth - Pattern Recognition
4. Pink Martini & Saori Yuki - Mayanaka No Bossa Nova (Midnight Bossa Nova)
5. Talk Talk - Life's What You Make It
6. David Bowie - Up the Hill Backwards
7. Kat Edmondson - I Don't Know
8. The Clash - The Right Profile
9. Ruby - Flippin' the Bird
10. Todd Rundgren - The Night the Carousel Burnt Down

My guess is that having such a public but generally anonymous job, she likely takes pride in knowing her regulars and has some affection for them as well.

I'm going to have to look up an unfamiliar David Bowie song :-)

You are almost certainly right. The lady does have a certain good humor, and seems to like a lot of her passengers. Not something I'm going to complain about.

Hope you found the song worth looking up. I like it.
