RIP, Les Paul – seems like a random 10 would be appropriate:

Cortez the Killer – Neil Young* – Zuma
They Say – Scars on Broadway* – (self-titled)
Plush – Stone Temple Pilots* – Core
No One Knows – Queens of the Stone Age – Songs for the Deaf
Demons – The Offspring – (self-titled)

  1. RIP Les, indeed.

    The year was 1987 – the Twins won their first World Series, I was in my 3rd year of working for Hughes Aircraft Company, and I was dating the future Mrs. Runner. This Friday’s random 10 were all released in 1987:

    “Girl in the Moon” – Icehouse, Man of Colours
    “Oro Blanco (White Gold) – Rubaja & Hernandez, High Plateaux
    “Curryclub” – Geoff Downes, The Light Program
    “Distant Village” (Michael Brook) – Various Artists, Angels in the Architecture
    “Airy Area” – Ozric Tentacles, There is Nothing
    “Jethro” – Geoff Downes, The Light Program
    “Spirit of Summer” – Deodato, Prelude
    “Kleine Blume Irgendwo” (Hans-Joachim Roedelius) – Various Artists, Angels in the Architecture
    “Too Late” – Alan Parsons Project, Gaudi
    “Midnight Blue” – Lou Gramm, Ready or Not

    Geoff Downes’ The Light Program has to be my favorite instrumental keyboard CD; found it used at a shop on Ventura Boulevard. I am still noticing new layers of sound on some of the tracks that I hadn’t noticed on previous listenings.

  2. To me Radiohead is an “album band” and it would be weird to hear Paranoid Android not followed by Subterranean Homesick Alien
