Music is my passion in life. I’m always wracking my brain trying to think of stuff to blog about and today a light bulb burned a bright beacon of enlightenment over me today. I thought to myself, why not write about music! Sometimes the most obvious answer isn’t always so obvious. I decided to post a playlist every month or so. I’m going to list about 10 songs a month that are currently on my iPod. I’m a total music schizophrenic so this should make for an eclectic list. Here goes, June’s top 5 songs on my iPod list!!!!!
1) “Custard Pie” by Led Zeppelin from the album Physical Graffiti.
This song is just so damn rockin. I really can’t say anything more other than; this song always puts me in the greatest mood.
2) “Mississippi Delta” by Bobbie Gentry from the album Ode To Billy Joe.
This song was the flipside to her very popular song “Ode To Billy Joe” It shows a totally different side to Bobbie Gentry, a funkier side. This song makes me wanna kick my shoes off and shake my tail feather! As a bonus, I also used this song to help my son remember how to spell Mississippi.
3) “Do You Know The Way To San Jose” by Dionne Warwick from the album Dionne Warwick In The Valley of The Dolls
Every time I listen to this song it gets stuck in my head, and I love it! I got on a Dionne Warwick kick a couple of months ago and bought a few songs by her. This was the first one I bought and it’s still my favorite. I listen to this song at least once every couple of days. Burt Bacharach originally wrote the song, and Dionne’s smooth effortless voice compliments the song beautifully. Every time I hear it I see beautiful pictures in my head of sunny days and vacation like scenes filled with colorful cocktails and oversized sunglasses. Where’s a pina colada when you need one?
4) “The Future” by Leonard Cohen from the album The Future
Pardon my forwardness, but this song just makes me think of dirty lustful sex. Something about Leonard Cohen and his seductively suggestive lyrics just really gets me goin. I’ve already maid myself blush. he he he
5) “Uprising” by Muse from the album The Resistance
I don’t usually listen to the radio, and I also don’t usually give most modern bands the time of day, but I really can’t pass up a truly good “stick it to the man” song. I happened upon this by accident and couldn’t get it out of my head. I had never even heard of this band before (I know, I’m totally out of touch when it comes to new music). I Googled the lyrics and found out what the song was. I haven’t had the chance to listen to any of the other songs on this album yet, but I plan on it. Perhaps there are more little treasures by Muse that have yet to tickle my eardrums.
Well until next time!!!! Peace out Divas!!
