Inspired by @reedpiernock - here is my Friday Random Ten!

Random Ten

  1. Mama's Song by Carrie Underwood
  2. Heart on Fire by Indiana
  3. Fall to Pieces by Pale Waves
  4. He Can't Marry Her by Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbott
  5. I Never Complain by Kenickie
  6. Hey Stephen by Taylor Swift
  7. Blah Blah by Lady Sovereign
  8. struggle by Tove Lo
  9. The End by The Big Moon
  10. Nancy the Tavern Wench by Alestorm

Another eclectic mix this week!

I have a soft spot for Pale Waves because they're from my adopted hometown, Manchester - also some banging tunes in the synth-y Cure-ish vein!

Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbott from Beautiful South there; I rank Paul Heaton amongst the greatest lyricists of all time. I've got this thing for the "beauty in the mundane" and Heaton does this fantastically. See also, Jarvis Cocker.

I learned the other day (thanks Ru Paul!) that Tove Lo's name is pronounced Toovay Loo - who knew?! Except people who can speak Swedish, obviously.

Finally, Alestorm! Fuckyeahalestorm! Scottish pirate metal! That is all.

You can find the playlist here on YouTube Music.

Get involved yourself!



In almost all cases, the comments section is a vile cesspool of Reply Guys, racists, and bots.

I don't want to have to deal with that kind of hell so I don't have a comments section.
