First vist to Music Savvy Mom? Awesome! Go
When I started this thing, I put out a call to lots of friends asking for shuffles…because let’s face it – y’all aren’t exactly blowing the doors off with the comments and emails, here.
(I’m not pointing any fingers, but you know who you are, random person I don’t know who’s reading right now. Ahem.)
So, the FIRST person to respond to my plea, within minutes of my whining and begging, was Broken Record. The email subject said “Guest Frigging Shuffle”. Only, it didn’t say frigging. I have awesome friends, y’all. Then, the emails went something like this:
“Me: So, what are we calling you?
Her: DJ Broken Record.
Me: Classic. Now, are you gonna give me a hint about how I can intro you? Any real details, or should I just make shit up about you being a retired Bond gal who now prowls the Riviera in demure Audrey Hepburn shades, ballet flats and a headscarf while hiding garotte wire, microfilm and cherry chapstick in your bulletproof demi-bra…?
And, do you want me to link to your blog? Any specific posts?
Her: Make shit up, but for Pete’s sake, can’t you come up with something better than THAT? And no, don’t link to my blog. God forbid my family finds out where I am online.
Me: You shall be an exotic Woman of Mystery. I may even throw in an affair with Ben AND Jerry…
Her: That may not be far from wrong unfortunately…although an affair with Captain Morgan might be just as accurate..”
…I love when posts write themselves.
Bonnie Raitt – Love Sneaking up on You
Ahh Bonnie, one of the original rocker chicks…gotta love her
Annie Lennox – Waiting in Vain
Always love Annie’s wonderful voice. Love this video with the Mickey Mouse ears. No it doesn’t go with the song but that’s why I love it.
Kenny G – Eastside Jam
Ok don’t laugh, I went through a Kenny G period in my life
**playlist.com didn’t have this one, the ratbastids. I substituted. MSM.
Jason Castro – Matter of Time
Well of course Jason would have to pop up, it’s a Matter of Time before we have his new CD
**foiled again by friggin’ playlist! I substituted this one because I love it. Sting cover – listen for the beautifully evocative Spanish. Gah.
The Rascals – Carry Me Back
This is from my husband’s collection but I love it. Hadn’t ever really heard it since I tune most of my husband’s music out. **AGAIN with the playlist saboteurs! You get Groovin’ instead. And, who doesn’t like this song? Seriously. Somebody tell me. I’m talking to myself over here…
If you love it, buy it…support the artists.
