Amy Winehouse Glastonbury 2007
Diane, You are always listening to something interesting! Over a year ago, I spent a dollar at our local library's "used bookstore", to purchase a used CD, Patty Loveless' "Only What I Feel". I was vaguely familiar with Loveless - knew enough about her to know I would probably not despise the CD I was purchasing. Turns out I love the songs on that CD and I love her delivery on that album. The last few days, that is what I have been listening to while scooting around in my car. Her material is great for "sing along", too, though I do the other drivers on the road a favor, & keep my windows closed while indulging! LOL That was a dollar well spent, the day I bought that used CD. Pam
Thanks Pam I would definately say the same for you!!
How about some Leonard Cohen...

Debut/Greatest Gainer No. 25 "Baby It's Cold Outside" Idina Menzel Duet With Michael Buble
When the first holiday song of the season hits the Adult Contemporary chart, it's a sign that Christmas can't be far away. Idina Menzel claims the honor this year, as "Baby It's Cold Outside," with Michael Buble, debuts at No. 25. The duet is from her Holiday Wishes, which entered the Nov. 1 Holiday Albums chart at No. 1.
Christmas music has started on my radio station and will be going on from now through Christmas!
I believe I have mentioned before, that sometimes I like to listen to the same song, repeatedly, while driving around in my car, attending to errands. Yesterday it was the energizing and happy "Walk Of Life" by Dire Straits. One of the best songs ever and well worth listening to over and over again!
I LOVE Dire Straits! For me the song stuck in my head is "This Girl is on Fire" by Alicia Keys. We celebrated Mole Day at school last week and one of my students did a mole project, "This Mole is on Fire!" and I've been walking around singing that ever since haha.
My CD Raising Sand with Robert Plant & Alison Krauss
Robert Plant ( Led Zeppelin) was on The Tonight Show last night, he sang the song Rainbow from his new album
Robert Plant and Zeppelin number 1 !
Robert and Alison had a great album in Raising Sand!
My favorite music is pop and rock from the late '60's - early 70's. I have recently begun creating stations on Spotify with the top songs from each year. It gives me a good feeling to listen to the greatest hits from my childhood years. My favorite artists are: Beatles (and other British Invasion groups), The Moody Blues, The Who, The Bee Gees (their older music, before Saturday Night Fever), Crosby, Stills, Nash (and Young), James Taylor, Carole King, Dan Fogelberg. I also love Motown and soul from that time period. I recently saw the Moody Blues in concert. They were great.
Here is one of my old favorites...."Spill the Wine" by Eric Burdon and War. It was made from a 45 rpm record, complete with hissing and crackles at the beginning for authenticity!
I love seeing the variety in what we are all listening to! There is so much great music out there it would take more than one lifetime to listen to it all : )
Listening to California Dreaming on a cool fall day.. love this song!
MMmmmm Phil Lynott still lights my fire...poor soul...anyway, you know what song has wormed into my brain tonight? "Angel" by Shaggy... if you had teens around 2001 you might have heard it, " GIRL YOU'RE MY ANGEL, YOOO MY DARLIN' ANGELLLL" and all the Spring-breakers would be swaying along...catchy song but it bores into your head...
Our library offers a whole line of CDs from Paste Magazine, "The Paste Magazine Sampler". There are dozens of CDs in this series, issued every month or two months, and each one has songs from approximately 19 not-so-well-known artists. Thus, I get to sample artists whose work will probably be new to me. A variety of musical styles are included. So, I have been listening to a stack of Paste Magazine Samplers, trying to find some new artists whose tunes are to my taste. This is a pretty nifty way to hear a sampling of new sounds, I think!
I like to listen to the blues. Buddy Guy, John Lee Hooker, Eric Clapton to name a few. Native American Mato Nanji is a great guitarist. He does a few covers and they are done superbly. He mostly writes and sings his own songs. Joe Bonamassa is another good one.
