Friday Random Ten

1. "I Shall Be Released," Joe Cocker and Joe's Grease Band
2. "Now She's Gone," Steve Earle
3. "This Time," Wylie and the Wild West
4. "Pick up the Change," Wilco
5. "You Don't Love Me," Matthew Sweet
6. "Roll over and Die," Bob Mould
7. "Farther Down the Line," Lyle Lovett
8. "Ain't Got no Home," The Band
9. "Cool Blues," Charlie Parker
10. "Please Be my Love," Jim & Jesse and the Virginia Boys

If the name Bob Mould sounds familiar, congratulate yourself for high-level 80's hipness. He was the most creative third of Husker Du. Since they broke up he fronted Sugar, recorded some solo albums and, in the tradition of Devo's Mark Mothersbaugh and Oingo Boingo's Danny Elfman, became Soundtrack Guy. He now writes the industrial-lite background music for TLC's In a Fix.

"Roll over and Die," is from a tragically overlooked epynomous album from the late nineties. If you see it in a cutout bin, buy it.
