Friday Random 10 – National Poetry Month edition


It’s Friday and you know what that means. Friday Random 10! With poetry on top! I don’t know about you, but I could use a little fun after this week of disturbing news.

I’ve got my coffee. I’m ready. Let’s do this thing!

1. Make Yourself – Incubus.
I do like these guys very much. They’ve had a couple of duds (but I have to admit that I like the duds as well). We are off to a good start.

2. Waiting in Vain – Bob Marley.
Good old Bob Marley. I heart him. I have his portrait hanging on the wall in my living room. My little brother drew it. It’s actually pretty rad. (brother’s got mad drawing skillz.)

3. Bullet with Butterfly Wings – Smashing Pumpkins
“Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage.”

4. Take Me Over – Cut Copy
Fun album. Great song!

5. An Ear For Baby – The Thermals
Yeah! The Thermals! My favorite band. This whole album if full of all sorts of wonderful.

6. All Apologies – Nirvana
This is shaping up to be a very good FR10.

7. Send Him Away – Franz Ferdinand
Another good song. Nice!

8. Rebel Rebel – David Bowie
Not much to say about David Bowie. He kind of speaks for himself.

9. Someday You Will Be Loved – Death Cab For Cutie
Didn’t this song come up a couple of weeks ago? hm.

10. Long Time – Cake
I think this is the only Cake song that I hate.

ok. now for the poem. Let’s see what we’ve got here….

If I hadn’t made me, I would’ve been made somehow
I don’t wanna wait in vain for your love
The world is a vampire, sent to drain
Do you hear that voice inside your head
Pull out your dead roots
What else should I be?
I can’t seem to feel the envy
You’ve got your mother in a whirl
I once knew a girl
It’s been a long time.


Wow. This one actually kind of works! Cool!

Happy Friday!
