Ten random things: April 28

Ten pop songs Nick Hornby wrote about in his book Songbook:

  1. Ani DiFranco, "You Had Time"
  2. Butch Hancock and Marce LaCouture, "So I'll Run"
  3. Soulwax, "No Fun/Push It"
  4. The Beatles, "Rain"
  5. Van Morrison, "Caravan"
  6. The Avalanches, "Frontier Psychologist"
  7. Bob Dylan, "Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window"
  8. The Bible, "Glorybound"
  9. Röyksopp, "Röyksopp's Night Out"
  10. Rod Stewart, "Mama You Been On My Mind"

I have to admit, the only one of these songs I can identify by title is "Rain." I wouldn't be surprised if I've heard the Bob Dylan, Rod Stewart, and Van Morrison songs, but I wouldn't swear to it. And there are a few artists up there I've never even heard of, like Röyksopp. Guess I'm not much of a music snob.
