My Music...

I love listening to music - it calms me, and brings me out of the everyday hum-drum of life. I used to fantacize about being a dancer for a rock band...or being a (I'm going to show my age) Solid Gold dancer even though I couldn't dance.

I used to tape record songs from the radio. I had records galore.

Now I have my iPod. I love my iPod. Here are the top songs I've been listening to:

Smooth by Rob Thomas (isn't he a hottie!)


Real World by Matchbox 20


Hanging by a Moment (Lifehouse)
This is also the theme song for my book Leaving Paradise


Lips of an Angel by Hinder


I love those bands. But I also love a local guy named Pat McCurdy. You can go to www.myspace.com/heypaddy or his website at www.patmccurdy.com Pat is a genius. He can play ANYTHING on his guitar, and even has an 80's montage he does at his local shows in Wisconsin and Illinois. When I was in college, I used to be a Pathead. Yes, a Pathead. Every Monday night he would play at a local bar and I'd be there, singing along and knowing every single one of his original (and totally politically incorrect) songs. Pat, wherever you are...even though I'm not able to come to your shows often, in my heart I'm still a Pathead. and I also listen to your songs on my iPod!

I love my iPod!

I don't have any of those songs . . . my tastes are a lot less mainstream . . . Django Reinhardt to a Club Les Bellugas to Mika to Rob Dugan. Nothing ever heard on the radio, pretty much. But I would just . . . hate life without my iPod.

I love all those except the one by Hinder. I had absolutely no sympathy for the guy making love talk to his ex while his girlfriend was in the next room! LOL Loved the music and his voice, but the lyrics grated on me:) "Sometimes I wish she were you?" GAH! I kept thinking the girlfriend needed to come out of the next room and beat him upside the head with the phone:)

My iPod and I are rarely apart--I can barely remember life before I got it!

Thank God for iPods. My kids are 5 and 7 and have suddenly developed a taste for Kings of Leon, Queen and Avril Lavigne and it means they can listen to their songs six hundred times in a row without driving my bonkers!!!!

I love guy singers...a sexy guy's voice singing is the best.
