Sunday Random Ten (feels weird just saying it)

Day off tomorrow on account of VJ Day.  Victory over Japan.  Rhode Island is the only state that still celebrates it, which feels kind of weird.  Pretty sure Pearl Harbor was elsewhere.  But a day off is a day off, I guess.

1. Broadcast - Goodbye Girls
2. R.E.M. - Driver 8
3. Beck - Waking Light
4. Paul Simon - How Can You Live In the Northeast?
5. Elton John - My Father's Gun
6. Dave Van Ronk - Stackerlee
7. Tito Puente - Take Five
8. St. Vincent - Bring Me Your Loves
9. Fats Domino - Walking to New Orleans
10. Diana Krall - Quiet Nights

They had a holiday weekend here last week in honor of Natal Day. I have no idea what that one's about but a day off in summer is not to be sneezed at.

Ah well, a second SR10 and a cool one too. Jer noticed St. Vincent is reminiscent of Annie Lennox. What do you think?

I just looked up Natal Day. Apparently it's just a Civic Holiday (that's what it's called on Wikipedia) that Canada gives to the provinces to do with as they please. Quebec and Yukon don't have it at all, but it's called different things depending on where you are.

I hadn't thought to compare Lennox and St Vincent, but there's some resemblance in vocal ranges. They're both Annies, too.
