Music recommendations, please...

On my way back to the office this afternoon I found myself dancing in my seat to Shakira's new song and thinking, "I should download this to my iPod so I can listen to it all-the-time." It also got me thinking, "Thank goodness there's no one around to see this dorky-lookin' white girl doing some bad car-dancing."

Which got me thinking that I should ask you, my dear readers, what music you can't get enough of these days... I've seen a few recommendations recently for the new Dixie Chick's... I've discovered Over The Rhine thanks to my blogger-friends... you've all been gems about books to read... So, here's the deal -- songs, songwriters, bands, solo artists, new, not-so-new, songs that make you want to hit repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat... bands that you have listened to for what feels like ever, or those you've just discovered... Let me know! I need to expand my musical repertoire... As I did with the books, I'll post a recommended listening list in a few days... ooooo... maybe I could even figure out how to make a list on iTunes... well, we'll see -- I am leaving for confirmation camp in a few days...!

Tift Merritt, Shelby Lynne, Blind Boys of Alabama, Josh Rouse, Alicia Keys (particularly the Diary one), Calexico + Iron & Wine, The Greatest Hits of Guns & Roses (yes, I'm serious), The Little Willies (I don't have that yet, but it's so high up on my list I feel like I could recommend it anyway), Feist. Oh, definitely Feist for you. And Ron Sexsmith, Joan Armatrading, and Amy Grants Hymns cds.

The new Bruce Springsteen album is FAB! Spent my allowance on the CD and boy am I glad. It's really interesting to hear the Boss' take on all the old Pete Seeger songs.
