10-P, 10-E

Ten random things: October 22

First of all, I would like to draw attention to this recent post on the Charm City Cakes blog, listing all of the things Duff Goldman has mentioned on The Best Things I Ever Ate, and point out that Mary Alice totally stole the idea for this list from me. Behold! Don't worry, guys, if I ever have a thousand bucks to drop on a cake, I'll still call you first. Now then:

Ten songs in 5/4, entirely or in part:

  1. Limp Bizkit - Take a Look Around (part)
  2. Lalo Schifrin - Theme from Mission: Impossible
  3. Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky - "Allegro con grazia" (second movement), Symphony No. 6 in B minor, "Pathétique", op. 74
  4. Dave Brubeck - Take Five
  5. Nick Drake - River Man
  6. Gorillaz - 5/4
  7. Gustav Holst - "Mars, the Bringer of War" from The Planets
  8. Yvonne Elliman - Everything's Alright
  9. Stars - Take Me to the Riot (part)
  10. XTC - English Roundabout

The first song is the only Limp Bizkit song I can tolerate. It's even better if you ignore Fred Durst's contributions to it.
