Friday Random Ten

Easily the most ridiculous so far:

1. "The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea," by Ella Fitzgerald
2. "Grey Eagle," by Bill Monroe
3. "Land: Horses/Land of a Thousand Dances/La Mer," by Patti Smith
4. "Don't Worry 'Bout Me," by Billie Holiday
5. "Mine's Not a High Horse," by The Shins
6. "Same Fool," by Dwight Yoakam
7. "Alarm Call," by Bjork
8. "Lonesome Day Blues," by Bob Dylan
9. "Porcelain," by Moby
10. Elvis Presley Blues," by Gillian Welch

I should mention that I have tweaked the methodology somewhat. If the top ten contains a duplicated artists, I shuffle again until a completely diverse list pops up. This time it took five shuffles. Usually the duplicate is Dylan, as I am something of a Bobhead. In fact, since I started all this, we've had but one Bob-free list.
