Friday random ten: Break it up

You can shake it, but please don’t break it.

1. Break It To Me Gently – Brenda Lee
2. Break My Heart – La Sera
3. Break Your Heart – Natalie Merchant
4. Breakin’ Me – Jonny Lang
5. Breaking – Anberlin
6. Breaking Bells (Take Me To The Mardi Gras) – Crash Crew
7. Breaking The Law – Judas Priest
8. Breaking Up Is Hard To Do – Neil Sedaka
9. Breaking Us In Two – Joe Jackson
10. The Breaks – Kurtis Blow

This is where I say that Joe Jackson is a greatly underrated artist, and you would do well to listen to more of his music. This is also where I confess that sometimes when I am out walking the dog at night, I will sing “Walking the dog, walking the dog” to myself to the tune of and in the style of Judas Priest’s “Breaking The Law”. I don’t know what you may want to do with that information, but now you have it.

    Neglected to list the actual song of that name by Foreigner.

    +1 and more for Joe Jackson! 40 years ago, his was often the opening music to nights out along the shore and those words and music stand up well today.

    -1 for Niel Sedaka. (What WERE you thinking?!) But let me offer a replacement from a true master of pop-schlock–a sweet little tune that really speaks in today’s language, despite its 45(?) years: https://youtu.be/6-kjUWcr7d4.
