Mayor's own Friday Random Ten

Want an ad blitz? A truly epic one is underway in Providence, with Buddy Cianci vying for a third lengthy term as mayor. In current lawn signs and other campaign paraphernalia the toupee is dead and buried, the candidate openly chrome-domed. It does make him look more trustworthy one one level.

1. Heidi Bruhl - Sag Mir Leis "Je t'aime"
2. The New Pornographers - Backstairs
3. Laurie Anderson - O Superman (For Massenet)
4. Diana Krall - The Best Thing for You
5. Fleetwood Mac - Never Make Me Cry
6. Nancy Wilson & Cannonball Adderly - The Masquerade Is Over
7. Imperial Teen - Hanging About
8. Nellie McKay - I am Nothing
9. Lou Rawls - Trouble Down Here Below
10. Dave Van Ronk - Silver Dagger

I still have the letter he sent us congratulating us on our marriage and wishing us well in his fair city. The man is a born politician and wouldn't know what else to do with himself.

Another fine FR10. Any selection that ends with Lou Rawls and Dave van Ronk has got to be classy.

I do have to admit the marriage note was classy. That was back when he'd recently spoken at the '76 GOP convention, so he had reason to think his future lay outside providence.

Glad you liked the FR10.
