"Another one bites the dust" Friday Random Ten

There's a relatively high turnover where I work.  It varies, but at some point after a couple of years a lot of people relocate themselves.  I'm one of the vets, actually.  One work friend had his last day today.  He's leaving the state and going into teaching.  Which is a recipe for interesting times.  I wish him the best.

1. Brian Eno - Zawinul/Lava
2. Neil Young - Sedan Delivery
3. Arcade Fire - Flashbulb Eyes
4. Beck - Blackbird Chain
5. Nancy Wilson & Cannonball Adderley - Happy Talk
6. Neko Case - John Saw That Number
7. Lower Dens - Brains
8. R.E.M. - Green Grow the Rushes
9. Amy Winehouse - Know You Now
10. St. Vincent - Every Tear Disappears

With decent jobs being so few these days it's good to know your work friends are able to find other employment. Yes, anyone going into a teaching career does deserve best wishes. I'm sorry you had to say good-bye to another friend.

Interesting FR10. I like the juxtaposition of Eno, Young, Arcade Fire, and Beck with Happy Talk bringing up the end.

Ah well, that's the business. I guess it's a privilege to meet people you like in the first place.

"Happy Talk" is a good midpoint. It's a nice, quirky jazz tune.
