Rocket to Random 

Once again, taken entirely from recent additions to the playlist:
1. Down In the Boondocks (Billy Joe Royal)
2. Cherry Bomb (Runaways)
3. Beautiful World (Devo)
4. Till the Rivers All Run Dry (Pete Townshend & Ronnie Lane)
5. Turn the Beat Around (Vicki Sue Robinson)
6. Wonderland (Big Country)
7. Ca Plane Pour Moi (Plastic Bertrand)
8. Magic Carpet Ride (Steppenwolf)
9. Eighteen (Alice Cooper)
10. Pretty Pursuasion (R.E.M.)

Also, I'm pretty excited that I scored - or, at least, I'm about to score - a major find. It turns out that a friend of mine has a copy of the original version of "Kim the Waitress" by the Green Pajamas on 7" vinyl. This version is infinitely superior to the better-known covers by Sister Psychic and Material Issue (not that there's anything wrong with either of those performances). Anyway, I'm just waiting for another friend with the appropriate technology to rip the vinyl, and I'm all hooked up. Sweet!
