Friday Random Ten for 28th April 2023
Inspired by @reedpiernock↗ - here is my Friday Random Ten!
- Mama's Song by Carrie Underwood
- Heart on Fire by Indiana
- Fall to Pieces by Pale Waves
- He Can't Marry Her by Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbott
- I Never Complain by Kenickie
- Hey Stephen by Taylor Swift
- Blah Blah by Lady Sovereign
- struggle by Tove Lo
- The End by The Big Moon
- 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↗.

I use InoReader↗ but you don't have to.
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.
