Dazed and confused? Not me. I’m just Lost in the Cheese Aisle.

The iPod d’Elisson
The old-school iPod d’Elisson.

It has been a little over four months since I last posted a Friday Random Ten, mainly because (1) I am lazy, and (2) I suspect most of my Esteemed Readers are thoroughly sick of ’em. After a few hundred iterations, after all, they all begin to look like the Same Old Shit.

Therefore, this time - for today only - I’m changing the rules.  I’ll post a random list of songs as generated by my iPod - the Little White Choon Box - but only songs from the 1960’s.  (Since I entered my sixties yesterday, what better excuse than to relive the Sixties?)

So let’s sit back, grab a set of headphones (for the ’60’s, I suppose they should be potheadphones) and let’s see what the Old Mr. iPod is barfing out today.
  1. Corcovado (Quiet Nights of Quiet Stars) - Stan Getz & João Gilberto (1964)

  2. Not to Touch the Earth - The Doors (1967)

  3. Repent Walpurgis - Procol Harum (1967)

  4. E Luxo So - Stan Getz & Charlie Byrd (1962)

  5. Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band - The Beatles (1967)

  6. I Saw Her Standing There - The Beatles (1963)

  7. Canyons of Your Mind - Bonzo Dog Band (1969)

  8. If I Needed Someone - The Beatles (1965)

  9. Legend of a Mind - Moody Blues (1968)

  10. Kol Nidre - The Electric Prunes (1968)

It’s Friday. What are you listening to?

What? No Hendrix, no Joplin, no Cream?

You DID have a misspent youth! ;-)

Oh, there's plenty of that stuff on my iPod, Stu - it just didn't pop up in the Randomized Rotation.

Lots of memories there; I remember seeing the Moodies and the Doors in concert.
