Friday Random 10: Abbey Road Edition

Pax Arcana

Tomorrow marks the 40th anniversary of the iconic photograph of John, Paul, George, and Ringo crossing Abbey Road. The picture was used as the album art on the Abbey Road album, and is a living reminder that British people have always walked in single file. No one knows why.


If Paul McCartney were alive today, I’d ask him about the final words to the album, in which he sings “And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make.” Because it seems to me the more love you make, the sleepier you get. Just sayin’.

The Songs:

God Save the Queen — Sex Pistols
You Really Got Me — The Kinks
Broken Face — The Pixies
Sound of Silver — LCD Soundsystem
Take the Fifth — Spoon
Atlas — Battles
Because — The Beatles
Labrythnian Pomp — Of Montreal
Dreamer — Tiny Vipers
Point and Shoot — Yo La Tengo

Bonus Video:

Ring of Fire — Ray Charles (Live on the Johnny Cash Show)

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.
