Friday Random Ten: Taking it easy edition

For some reason, this has been a draining week, and I’m just slumped in my easy chair with the iTunes entertaining me…so let’s toss up a Friday Random Ten.

Blade Of Grass Asylum Street Spankers
Prayers for Rain The Cure
Skåne Hedningarna
Whip It Devo
My Generation Patti Smith
Hallelujah Leonard Cohen
Logon Rock Witch Alarm Will Sound
Show me forgiveness Bjork
Stripper Lords Of Acid
Dr.Sayus Simpsons

Tomorrow is another day in the office, whipping up this talk for Cafe Scientifique, and I think I’ve got a science post or two fermenting up in my cranium.

    Sweet on the Spankers!!

    If there was any justice in this world, those guys would
    be the best selling band in the history of the universe.

    If you haven’t seen them live, make every effort possible to do so.

    Dr. Zaius Dr. Zaius!
    Dr. Zaius Dr. Zauis!
    Dr. Zauis Dr. Zauis!
    Ooooooohh… Dr. Zaius! (Dr. Zauis Dr. Zaius!)

    What’s wrong with me? (I think you’re crazy!)
    I want a second opinion! (You’re also crazy!)

    I want a second opinion! (You’re also lazy!)

    (I have no idea why I’m being such a stickler for all these details … except, that was a season of The Simpsons that I actually liked. And, I was one of those kids who watched all five afternoons of “Apes Week” on the channel 7 afternoon movie. I understand that I’m rather pathetic …)

    And how could you leave out “7 Deadly Sins” by Flogging Molly?

    “We’re seven drunken pirates
    full of seven deadly sins”

    Skĺne, that´s where I live (southernmost part of Sweden)! Today was the first day of the year that the sun´s rays really made a difference, i.e. we Swedes do that weird turning-our-faces-towards-the-sun-all-at-the-same-time thingy.

    I saw Lords of Acid when I was 16, sneaked into an 18+ show with my friend on his 16th birthday. My friend proceeded to lick the breasts of a woman in the crowd he’d never met before or since. I really haven’t thought about that for years!

    “Prayers For Rain” -> “The Same Deep Water As You” -> “Disintegration”

    Is there a better triumvirate in all of pop music?
