It's not just the music that's loud in this Friday Random Ten

Well as it happens my cold is pretty much gone.  What's left is a tickle in my throat that can potentially cause coughing jags any time of day or night.  Is this more annoying to me or to people around me?  It's a tossup.

1. Talk Talk - My Foolish Friend
2. R.E.M. - Sitting Still
3. The Bird and the Bee - Witch
4. Love - The Good Humor Man He Sees Everything Like This
5. Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band - Equestrian Statue
6. Gogol Bordello - Start Wearing Purple*
7. Nellie McKay featuring Cyndi Lauper - Beecharmer
8. Taj Mahal - Take a Giant Leap
9. Morphine - Candy
10. Dinah Washington - Invitation

* Strippers love this song.  Googling "start wearing purple burlesque" brings a ton of video results.

Why is it a cough will invariably tickle its way up just when all is quiet?

Cool FR10. Taj Mahal is an old favorite and I can see what you meant about the purple burlesque.

Coughs have a keen sense of irony, I suppose.

It's always nice to hear Taj Mahal (or Henry Fredericks as some still probably call him) so he'll be turning up on the FR10 again.
