This is my virtual mix tape for all of my readers! I've been listening to a lot of music that makes me happy and I wanted to share some of them with you. Click on the title to link to the song on YouTube or lastfm.com
"I Don't Feel Like Dancing" -Scissor Sisters...This song makes me smile and I love the retro disco sound!
"A Case of You" - Joni Mitchell...hands down, this is my favorite Joni Mitchell song. "I could drink a case of you and still I'd be on my feet, oh I would still be on my feet."
"Superhero Lover" - Daze...this takes me back to my days of going out and dancing with Jeff when I lived in Tulsa. Nothing but good memories wrapped up in this song.
"Where's the Playground Suzie?" - Glen Campbell....my all-time favorite Glen Campbell/Jimmy Webb collaboration! I can remember singing this song with the radio when I was 4 or 5 years old.
"Need a New Sunrising Every Morning" - Ronee Blakley....from Bob Dylan's 1975 Rolling Thunder Review show, this song should have become a classic and I'm doing my best to spread the word!
"Like a Bad Girl Should" - the Cramps [warning.....the words and video to this song are for adults only!] This song brings a smile to my face because it reminds me of a very special guy who rocks.
"All Consuming Love" - Alice Peacock..I love Alice! Every song on her self titled album speaks to me....it's like she got inside my head a wrote every song for me! I love them all but this is the one I've chosen to share.
"Smells Like Teen Spirit" - Tori Amos...this is the best cover of a song I've ever heard. The sadness of the song really comes through because of the slow acoustic spin she puts on this seemingly non-sensical song. Haunting......truly.
"Where the Streets Have No Name" - U2.....classic 80's U2.....one of the best videos ever!
"Dancing Barefoot" - U2......a cover of a Patti Smith song and somewhat obscure which is why I love it so much!
"When I'm with You" - Sheriff.....I had to have a rock ballad in the mix and this one is one of my all-time faves!
"Make Me Smile" - Duran Duran.....this is my favorite 80's band. My room was plastered with their images. This is another obscure title from well-known band.
"Is This Real?" - Lisa Hall.....just to mix it up a bit, my favorite trip-hop song.
"Starlight" - Muse.......they put on the best live show I've ever seen! Add a star in the title and I'm hooked!
