"I think I could stay with you...for awhile, maybe longer if I do..."




WOW! The iTunes Music Store totally surprised me last night with some SONGS I love.....

Counting Crows have covered "Amie" originally recorded by Pure Prairie League. One of my all time favorite songs and available at iTunes for .99!!! The cover has a sweet, almost cajun/zydeco feeling but still preserves the country flavor of the original.

Other songs:

River by Travis from a CD called Christmas Calling and Sixpence None the Richer doing It Came Upon a Midnight Clear!

Songs that Mention City Names



I have an affinity for songs that mention city names -- especially cities I've been to. Here's one:

Ramblin Man:

I’m on my way to New Orleans this mornin’,
Leaving out of Nashville, Tennessee,
They’re always having a good time down on the bayou,
Lord, them delta women think the world of me.

Sometimes...when you touch me....



I've been standing out in the rain
I've been calling your name
Got that lonely feeling again
Calling out your name
Do you hear me? Do you want me?

Baby it's all or nothing now
I don't wanna run and I cant walk out
You're breaking my heart if you leave me now
Don't wanna wait for ever
Who do you think you're fooling
Who do you think you're fooling
Baby it's all or nothing,
Baby it's all or nothing now

I've been trying to get to your heart
But I'm chasing shadows
We keep falling further apart
So near and you're so far
Do you care now? Do you know how?

Cher, All or Nothing

(The Almighty Mix rocks my world!)

Fallen / Sarah McLachlan




Heaven bent to take my hand
And lead me through the fire
Be the long awaited answer
To a long and painful fight

Truth be told I've tried my best
But somewhere along the way
I got caught up in all there was to offer
And the cost was so much more than I could bear

Though I've tried, I've fallen...
I have sunk so low
I have messed up
Better I should know
So don't come round here
And tell me I told you so...

We all begin with good intent
Love was raw and young
We believed that we could change ourselves
The past could be undone
But we carry on our backs the burden
Time always reveals
The lonely light of morning
The wound that would not heal
It's the bitter taste of losing everything
That I have held so dear.

I've fallen...
I have sunk so low
I have messed up
Better I should know
So don't come round here
And tell me I told you so...

Heaven bent to take my hand
Nowhere left to turn
I'm lost to those I thought were friends
To everyone I know
Oh they turned their heads embarassed
Pretend that they don't see
But it's one missed step
You'll slip before you know it
And there doesn't seem a way to be redeemed

Though I've tried, I've fallen...
I have sunk so low
I have messed up
Better I should know
So don't come round here
And tell me I told you so...

Culture Club Remasters




I'm a Culture Club fan from way back.... I actually saw them in 1983 on the "War is Stupid" Tour at Market Square Arena. Matt, Eden, Michelle and I actually crossed a picket line of concerned citizens who thought Boy George was bringing unwholesomeness and degradation to Indianapolis. Gee, if that was the worst thing that every happened to Indianapolis they should be happy... how silly it seems in 2003... I'm more afraid of some of our leaders and religious figures than I am of dear old George. Boy, that is, not the DubYa.

Anyway, Tuesday marks the re-release of CC's first three albums, remastered and expanded. I just ordered them from amazon.com for $10.99 each.

Rock on, George....

Weeding my iTunes Library



In preparation for the new 40GB and wanting to clear some "not so favorite" songs, I weeded out the iTunes Library last Thursday. After buying new music last week, I was inspired to make sure I had the best songs and the best sounding songs. The Steve Miller, Doors and dead stuff sounded a million times better than what I had from buying those CDs years ago.... off they went!

Now the library hovers at 27MB and can automatically sync to the 40GB and the 30GB.... sweet.

New Releases this Week



I guess it's that time in the fall when the record companies put out Greatest Hits packages. I'm tickled because in this last weekends big push to simplify and clear clutter out of my house, I actually wished I had a couple GH packages for some CDs I put in the " to be sold " bag.

This week:

Bonnie Raitt Best

Donna Summer Very Best

I may look at Dido but I bought the single "White Flag" from Apple.

Is It in your Mind At All?



Sunrise                                                                          
Simply Red

Sunrise
As I look into your eyes I see the sunrise
The light behind your face helps me realise
Will we sleep and sometimes love until the moon shines
Maybe the next time I’ll be yours and maybe you’ll be mine
I don’t know if it’s even in your mind at all
It could be me
At this moment in time
Is it in your mind at all
It should be me, it could be me
Forever
Wandering through life will love come home to you
And the love you want forever, will they be true to you
Will we sleep and sometimes love until the moon shines
Maybe the next time I’ll be yours and maybe you’ll be mine
I don’t know if it’s even in your mind at all
It could be me
At this moment in time
Love’s indescribable
It should be me, it could be me
Forever
Easy, ready, willing, over time
Where does it stop where do you dare me to draw the line
You’ve got the body now you want my soul
Don’t even think about it say no go

Simply Red "Sunrise"



Have you heard this? Hall & Oates sampled by an 80s artist in a 2003 song.... pretty darn cool. I like it...it's infectious... but why is it not at Apple iTunes Music Store ?

Sheryl Crow Rocked South Bend





How cool is it that Sheryl Crow played the Morris Performing Arts Center in downtown South Bend last friday. On my way to work, i saw her bus -- shades drawn. (I thought about stopping to pound on the door and see if she'd join me for tea but I decided to let her sleep)

She chatted a bit during the show. She said she had been out and about and thought our area was pretty cool...

Here's a fan site that is pretty darn cool.

Here's her own site with the SB Setlist!!!

Checkout Moby's "Love of Strings"



An Apple iTunes Music Store exclusive or on his "Extreme Ways" single - this is the expanded instrumental version of "Signs of Love" from 18 and used in the Jaguar commercial. I've been playing it a lot and using it as background music for some nature shots of Spider Lake in my TC video.

Ashley MacIsaac



Recalls Ashley at the time, “My father once told me, ‘If you want to play the fiddle, get mad at it or don’t play it at all.’”

Just got Ashley MacIsaac's new CD from Amazon . It's very quirky and cool. Ashley plays Celtic fiddle and on this CD he sings as well. His voice has a unique quality that I appreciate. I am drawn to vocals that are different: Stevie's signature vibrato and rasp, Michael Stipe's tonal quality, Melissa Etheridge's raspiness, etc. Check out this CD and his other releases. I flipped for his "Sleepy Maggie" from his earlier CD
Hi, How are You Today?
