XBRMNT's Top 10 for the Week of Nov. 2
After a weekend full of fright and frolic, Manic Monday was laid back.
4:16PM, Tue. Nov. 2, 2010
Sure, the Halloween decorations were still up at Chain Drive as November reared its turkey-feathered head last night, but the fake cobwebs and glowing bats actually fit the scene there pretty well.
With most of us barely hanging on after a weekend filled with bears and zombies, Christeene (and whatever she hurled at the audience after pulling it out of her booyang), and way too many "Chilean miners," I felt a more relaxed type of Manic Monday was in order.
1. "They Call It Stormy Monday" David Clayton-Thomas Indeed it was very stormy last night.
2. "Moonshadow" - Cat Stevens Woof! Cat was hot back in the day; I'd follow him, too!
3. "We've Got Tonight" Bob Seger & the Silver Bullet Band I prefer his live version myself, but I love watching the original daddy bear, Kenny Rogers, sing it with Sheena Easton.
4. "Hold On" Wilson Phillips Love ya, Carney! Mean it!
5. "Still Crazy After All These Years" Paul Simon This is one of those songs that never gets old.
6. "Why I Went Missing" The Style Council One of my all-time favorite (yet often overlooked) Paul Weller classics.
7. "November Spawned a Monster" Morrissey I believe I have played this song every November 1 for over 10 years. Why stop now? Check out the man himself as he grinds it up with rocks in the desert. International Male blouse included at no cost to you.
8. "Beth" KISS Their only number one hit, this one was sung by original drummer, Peter Criss.
9. "Kid" The Pretenders Anything Chrissie Hynde is singing, I'm listening to.
10. "Love in the First Degree" Alabama Randy Owen and the boys are a bit older (and chunkier) in this video, but I can't help but giggle when I see him singing with his hands on his hips!
