Random Friday – Man From Pakistan edition

without comments

It is a simple game, hit shuffle on your music library interface, and record the first ten songs that emerge. You can play too, but here’s what showed up on my Friday shuffle. Some notes below

  1. Jules Dupont Gregorian Chant- Benedicamus Domino (Exultemus…)


    A Treasury Of Gregorian Chants

  2. Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy- I Am Drinking Again


    I See a Darkness
    – a little too melancholy for this morning, but a strong track nonetheless. I’m on my 9th warm glass of gin


  3. Clark, Gene- The True One


    No Other
    -state of the nation, circa 1974, complete with slide guitars.

  4. Van Ronk, Dave- Sprig of Thyme


    Inside Dave Van Ronk
    – No Dave Van Ronk, no Bob Dylan. Simple as that. Bet Dave Van Ronk was fun to drink whisky with.

  5. Joni Mitchell- Happy Birthday 1975


    Mingus
    – a rousing Happy Birthday sung to Charles Mingus, with the additional refrain, How Old Are You? Mingus sings back, 54, motherfucker, but Joni Mitchell corrects Mingus, 53! You were born in 1922, Charles Such an odd little track

  6. Drake, Nick- Summertime


    Tanworth In Arden
    – more melancholy, can barely even hear Nick Drake’s voice.

  7. Rolling Stones- Street Fighting Man


    Beggars Banquet
    – hard to listen to this song, as good as it is, we’ve all heard it too frequently. I tried to listen to it as I have never heard it before, but this is difficult task.

  8. The Open Mind- Magic Potion


    Nuggets II: Original Artyfacts From The British Empire And Beyond
    garage rock paean to drug use. This could very well be a contemporary band like The Killers, Brian Jonestown Massacre or Queens of the Stone Age.

  9. King Oliver’s Creole Jazzband- Southern Stomp (1st take)


    Louis Armstrong And King Oliver
    – Hey didn’t New Orleans win some sort of sporting event? Whatever, never need an excuse to listen to Louis Armstrong and King Oliver

  10. Flaming Lips- Man From Pakistan


    Hear It Is The Flaming Lips
    – This was the iteration of The Flaming Lips I first knew: psychedelic punk rock, outsider music, and catchy as hell.

  11. Doors, The- Hyacinth House


    Box Set -Disk 1- Without A Safety Net
