Friday Random 10: Radiohead v. Prince Edition

Pax Arcana

You may remember when Pax Arcana brought you the pretty-cool video of twisted purple water nymph Prince performing Radiohead’s “Creep” at the Coachella music festival. Well don’t bother clicking that link this time, because the lavender leprechaun had his lawyers go and remove it from the Internets.

Which struck Radiohead’s Thom Yorke as pretty strange, considering it’s his fucking song:

“Really? He’s blocked it?” asked Yorke, who figured it was their song to block or not. “Surely we should block it. Hang on a moment.”

Yorke added: “Well, tell him to unblock it. It’s our … song.”

Which pretty much sums up my thoughts on Prince:

Million dollar talent + ten cent head.

On to the songs:

Communist Daughter — Neutral Milk Hotel
Flip Your Wig — Husker Du
All the Rage — Cary Brothers
Moonlight — Bob Dylan
Karma Police — Radiohead
A97 I Was A Lover — TV on the Radio
Springer Show — The Asskickers
Stacy’s Mom — Fountains of Wayne
All My Friends — LCD Soundsystem
Moby Octopad — Yo La Tengo

Bonus Video:

No One Knows — Queens of the Stone Age, Live at Reading

The Rules: The Friday Random 10 is exactly that — random. We open up our iTunes, set the thing on shuffle, and listen to 10 songs. We are not permitted to skip any out of embarrassment or fear of redundancy. Commenters are encouraged to post their own.
