What's in your playlist?

Here are the CD's habitually getting airplay in my kitchen and car:

Jesse Cook's Nomad and Frontiers
Tracy Chapman's Telling Stories
Women Who Rock 1 (3 cd compilation)
Janis Joplin's Greatest Hits
Jewel's This Way and Spirit
Elton John's Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboys
David Bowie - Best of Bowie
Rolling Stones - Hot Rocks
U2 - Rattle and Hum
Regenesis - In the Beginning (a very talented local church youth group)
Faith Hill - Breath
Juno Soundtrack
Dwight Yoakam - Last Chance For A Thousand Years and A Long Way Home
Natalie Imbruglia - Left of the Middle
Neil Young - Harvest Moon
Maroon Five - Songs About Jane

I have others that I listen to from time to time, and I listen to mostly classical at work, but the above CDs are ones that often make their way back off the shelf when I try to put them away.

So...what's in your player?

Currently - Emma by Jane Austen.

She's always been my favorite author, well, since I was 17 actually.

I reread all the books every couple of years and when I came to reread them this year - well, I am so busy with the computing that I found the first 2 free on itunes, then downloaded the nest two as podcasts, and found the last two, Emma and Mansfield Park on the net.

I listen as I drive to work, and before I go to bed. I have never heard a talking book before - ever! So this has been a new discovery for me.

Hi Anne, great question! I had to go by songs rather than CD's since I mainly listen to playlists that I create for my iPod and car stereo. Referring to my iTunes, I consistently found these song choices on all the playlists that I create. I’m pretty eclectic in my taste in music...

The Cross – Prince
Kiss – Prince
Purple Rain - Prince
Yeh Jo Des Hai Mera - A.R. Rahman
Esisti Dentro Me – IL Divo
La Solitudine - Laura Pausini
Diamante - Zucherro
Word of God Speak – Mercy Me
Brown Eyed Girl – Van Morrison
Sweet Soul Music – Aruthur Conley
Born On the Bayou – John Fogerty
Jump – Van Halen
Proud Mary – Tina Turner
Every Breath You Take – Police
Fantasy – Mariah Carey
When Love Comes to Town – U2
Pride – U2
Sweet Child of Mine –Guns & Roses
State of Independence-Donna Summer

This was fun! It made me think about the songs that I always listen to the most. Your list seems like a pretty good mix too.

I love Dwight Yoakam! I've seen him in concert a couple of times and love his songs and his voice. I need to dig out his CDs because I haven't listened to him in a while.

Lately, I've been in a classical music phase. I know very little about it but it relaxes me on my commutes to and from work.

Other things I've listened to lately:

Big Daddy Love- Circle Around the Sun (my cousin's band who just released their first CD...kinda bluegrass rock, I love it)

Krishna Das: Live on Earth (Hindu chanting, very beautiful, plus I saw him live here in NC last week)

Barbra Streisand: Live at the Forum

The Band: Greatest Hits

James Taylor: Sweet Baby James

Grateful Dead: American Beauty


Kathy, I had not heard "Word of God Speak" before. But just had a listen on youtube and it is wonderful. I must check out more by Mercy Me.

Annie, I agree Dwight is awesome live! The voice, the songs, the moves, the tight jeans ;) he's got it all

What interesting and varied lists you both have, thanks for sharing them with me!!

U2 Rattle and Hum

my personal fave
