Wednesday Random 10

I have a real post planned for today — that is, one that’s written and not merely a list — but my iPhone served up a few entirely incongruous selections when I started it up this morning, so it seemed as if it were requesting a random 10 post. I decided to oblige, rather than anger the iPhone gods. And, with the exception of one duplicate artist, I think this is as wacky a list as ever I have gotten.

  1. Love Letters – Miranda Lambert
  2. Sister Christian – Night Ranger
  3. King of Birds – REM
  4. A Time of Inconvenience – Nanci Griffith
  5. Carnival of Sorts – REM
  6. Hey Baby – No Doubt
  7. Kkayni – Marwan Khoury
  8. Cinco de Mayo – Liz Phair
  9. Cousins – Vampire Weekend
  10. Eh, Eh (Nothing Else I Can Say) – Lady Gaga

What’s coursing through your headphones today?

    Wait a minute, you’re a fan of Miranda Lambert AND Lady Antebellum but won’t give the Dixie Chicks a listen? Wow.

    @Sionna – As I said in my comment on the original Lady Antebellum post, I’ve given the Dixie Chicks more of a listen than any other band I don’t like. And you know what, I still don’t like them. Learn to accept it. 🙂

    NEVER! I was never any good about accepting that which I cannot change crap….

    So on that note, perhaps you will like the Dixie Chicks sans Natalie…Emily and Martie (the banjo player and fiddle player respectively) call themselves The Courtyard Hounds and just cut an album with Martie on lead vocals.

    Give them a try. You might like them better because I think it’s Natalie’s voice that rubs you the wrong way, though I cannot fathom why.

    You Give Love a Bad Name–Bon Jovi
    Dentist! — Little Shop of Horrors
    Trouble — Pink
    Little Wonders — Rob Thomas
    Ready to Run — Dixie Chicks (not one of my favorite tunes by them)
    Its Hot Up Here — Sunday in the Park with George
    Morningside — Sara Bareilles
    So Hard — Dixie Chicks
    Between the Lines — Sara Bareilles
    If I Fall You’re Going Down With Me — Dixie Chicks

    OK, the Dixie Chicks/Sara Bareilles emphasis is just weird.

    Oh, and Shannon, I’m very sad to hear the sisters went off without Natalie. I realize that the Chicks haven’t really broken up, but this seems to be a first step to a fizzle out. Boo!

  7. Sionna February 17, 2010 / 9:02 pm

    I can’t tell if the Chicks broke up or if Martie and Emily are just their own project for the time being. I’ve read that Natalie just didn’t feel like doing an album right now but they might do another Chicks album some other day in the future.

    Who knows.
