Friday Random 10

Must be the depressing version. Agony, tragedy, starvation in Africa, breakups, unresolved anger. . .at least the bonus track takes us to that beautiful eschatological vision of Christ's final redemption of all our pain.

#1 is from a collection of various artists remaking U2 songs. This is one of only two tracks on the album that I find actually make it work. #4 takes me back to boring days attempting to survive as a sales clerk in a Christian retail store in Southern California. #5 has some of the funniest lyrics written on the issue of male hubris. And speaking of #3 - I've been emailing with one of the members of Union Station about possibly coming up here and doing a concert in Lakebay. It's a long shot, but we'll see. . .
