On TGIFriday Random Ten

Okay, so have you ever had one of those weeks where Friday comes and you could just kiss it on the mouth for being so glorious, and then you look back and realize that you didn't actually do anything that week? I think that says a lot about the unproductive things we do that take up just as much energy as anything productive: goofing off, worrying, drinking heavily, wigging out violently about cartoons. It really makes you appreciate the weekend, when you sit back, relax, and not even pretend to do anything productive.


1. Sixpence None the Richer, "Breathe"
2. Kay Starr, "All of You"
3. Dinah Washington, "You Go to My Head"
4. Gioachino Rossini, "Crucifixus" (from Petit messe solennelle)
5. Tina Turner, "Nutbush City Limits (The 90's Version)"
6. The Beatles, "Can't Buy Me Love"
7. Linkin Park, "One Step Closer"
8. Remy Zero, "I'm Not Afraid"
9. The Original Broadway Cast of Avenue Q, "The Avenue Q Theme"
10. The Killers, "Somebody Told Me"

Incidentally, which song is worse to have stuck in your head for two whole days: Lionel Richie's "Dancing on the Ceiling," or the Beatles' "Hey Jude"? It seems like an easy question to answer, but remember that we're talking about a song on loop for forty-eight straight hours, including several awkward dream cameos. Your answer, and your Ten, below.
