Awesome, ufez! Your list kicked off with my favorite singer ever. I think we like a lot of the same music. I recently got into R.A. the Rugged Man, he's really masterful.

And octothorpe, "Boulevard of Broken Dreams" is in my top 50 ever. Only I don't mean the Green Day song, which is plenty nice. I mean the Brian Setzer song of the same name. Though I also like Hanoi Rocks "version." I guess since the first song to claim the title was written in 1933, it's fair game. I think there are around a dozen different Boulevards.

Okay, my turn:

1. Cicero Blake - A Woman Needs to be Loved (1967 or '71 Brunswick single, unissued until 1999)
2. Hambone Willie Newbern - Roll and Tumble Blues (1929 Okeh single) "Newbern was a hot-tempered man who eventually was beaten to death in a prison brawl, around 1947."
3. Tyrone Taylor - Life Table (1975 Wolf single)
4. Matthew Sweet - Someone to Pull the Trigger (Live) (1994, Son of Altered Beast EP) This recording might feature my favorite lead guitar work ever. That's Richard Lloyd of Television fame.
5. Miracle Fortress - Raw Spectacle (2011, Was I the Wave?)
6. Moneybrother - Blow Him Back into My Arms (2005, To Die Alone) Okay, Super-Swede Anders Wendin is my hero, and I want everybody I know to find a copy of this record. Here's the same song as it appears on the record.
7. Clyde McPhatter - Without Love (There is Nothing) (1957 Atlantic single)
8. Johnny Boy - You Are the Generation That Bought More Shoes and You Get What You Deserve (2004 Wild Kingdom single)
9. T. Rex - Life's a Gas (1971, Electric Warrior)
10. The Rulers with The Carib Beats - Let My People Go (1967 Sir JJ's single) The Carib Beats were the studio band of J.J. Carl "Sir JJ" Johnson, who ran record labels out of his Orange Street (Kingston) record/juke box outlet, where he was shot dead in 1972.

I'm particularly happy with the magic shuffler today.

The Cure - Lullaby
The Beatles - You've Got to Hide Your Love Away
Violent Femmes - How Do You Say Goodbye?
Good Charlotte - My Bloody Valentine
Fleetwood Mac - Gypsy
The Doors - Moonlight Drive
Hunters and Collectors - When the River Runs Dry
Ram Jam - Black Betty
Huey Lewis & The News - The Heart of Rock & Roll
The Angels - After Dark

About as mainstream as music gets, but I guess that's me all over.

Maybe mainstream, but that's a great list, dg. That Huey Lewis song jumps into my head all the time. It blows my mind that Huey Lewis played harmonica with Thin Lizzy and shared band personnel with Graham Parker and Elvis Costello.

I might as well shuffle again.

1. Matzak - Dadaughter (2007, Life Beginnings) This is from Matzak's first full-length record, on Kompakt. It's great.
2. Otis Redding - Just One More Day (1966 Volt single, B-side of I Can't Turn You Loose) I get a lot of Otis in my shuffles, there's a stack of six or seven of his records in my files.
3. Johnny Bristol - Hang On In There Baby (1974, Hang On In There Baby)
4. Red Allen, Frank Wakefield & The Kentuckians - Are You Washed in the Blood? (1964, Bluegrass) I was tempted to spell it "warsh."
5. Baroness - Bullhead's Psalm (2009, Blue Record) Easily confused with Bullhead's Lament, which appears later on the same album.
6. Al Hibbler - After The Lights Go Down Low (1956 Decca single)
7. Souls of Mischief - '93 'til Infinity (1993, '93 'til Infinity)
8. The KLF - Wichita Lineman Was a Song I Once Heard (1990, Chill Out)
9. Matthew Sweet - Behind the Smile (1997, Blue Sky on Mars) Similar to the Otis Redding situation: my stack is loaded with Matt Sweet records.
10. Coco Bryce - Polaroid Sunset (2011 Myor single) Bryce also released a track worth seeking out called "Verry Sorry" under the stage name Polaroid Sunset (I know, it's confusing), as the B-side of Bots' "Diskoblink," also on Myor, 2011.
