This week, I've been totally influenced by all that was going on in Washington. I picked up on Dana's vibes from Alexandria, Virginia, and was swept away by all things Obama, the exhilaration of the new regime, and celebrations worldwide. As a result, my production of just about all else was low and I ended up spending a lot of time being influenced by music. Here are some new tunes that I found this week.
Let it Be Me
if you want to hear Ray Charles LaMontagne's gravelly voice
The Beauty of the Rain
If you want to listen to a little songbird
Just Like You
For some real blues, this is a MASTER of blues
Sara Bareilles and Ingrid Michaelson
This is a really sweet video that Irene found. The Hotel Café album has some good tunes on it
All of these selections are available through iTunes. They are .99 cents and I purchased all of them this week. I just love it when I find new music of which I was previously unaware, and some that I just want on my iPod.
Whenever this fabulous oldie comes on in my workout class my step lightens and I am compelled to sing at the top of my lungs...sorry guys :) See if it doesn't get you movin'.
One Fine Day
This is what surfing this marvelous net has to offer. Thanks to everyone who led me down a new musical path. I hope that you will find something that moves you in each of these pieces.
