Pop! Goes the Friday Random 10

Well, I set WMP to the “Pop” genre, but I’m not sure I agree with all these songs’ designations; may have to do some adjusting…

  1. Water is Wide” – James Taylor, New Moon Shine
  2. “One of Our Submarines” – Thomas Dolby, The Golden Age of Wireless
  3. “Under African Skies” – Paul Simon, Graceland
  4. Strawberry Letter 23” – The Brothers Johnson, Right on Time
  5. “True Colours” – Go West, Aces and Kings: The Best of Go West
  6. “Sex Symbol” – Marc Jordan, Living in Marina Del Rey and Other Stories
  7. “Love So Right” – Bee Gees, Here at Last…Live
  8. “Something We Can Do” – Vitamin Z, Rites of Passage
  9. “Girl in the Moon” – Icehouse, Man of Colours
  10. Walk on the Ocean” – Toad the Wet Sprocket, PS: A Toad Retrospective

Toad the Wet Sprocket is one of those groups I never appreciated at the time but enjoy now.  And Vitamin Z was a great 80’s pop group that never quite got off the ground.
