I got through nearly half of them. The Dave Matthews was worth the price of admission. I love Nora Jones but have been disappointed in this last album.

I don't know why my comments won't capitalize. what's the opposite of a geek? I have someone who's going to help me tweak but not until April first.

Heather said...

Colleen: Glad you checked a few of the songs out and found one you like. I like this latest Norah Jones song, but have not (yet) heard anything else on the CD. It sounds like quite a departure from previous material, though.

And I hear you on being the opposite of "geek." I usually have to turn to programming friends for computer issues, too. I hope it's an easy fix!

Journeywoman said...

I love fearless love.

Alice Audrey said...

Ah, music to my ears. :)

Shelley Munro said...

I like Norah Jones. Johm Mayer, on the other hand, makes me grit my teeth with his blabbing about everyone and everything. He's visiting down here in NZ at the moment.

Hazel said...

I would love listen to 1901 and Chasing Pirates. I haven't listened to Norah Jones in awhile.

CountryDew said...

I love MLE and Norah Jones! Great list.

I am a new visitor, so here's my where you can find my TT:

Adelle Laudan said...

Great selection of songs. I love Melissa Etheridge. Happy T13!

Stephanie Adkins said...

Great songs! I LOVE Lifehouse and Norah Jones. Happy Thursday! *Hugs*

Brenda ND said...

Good songs. Good picks. I like Lifehouse and Barenaked Ladies.

Elise Logan said...

I'm always interested to see other people's favorite music. Some of these work for me, others - not so much. lol.

Paige Tyler said...

I've never heard of any of those! LOL! I think I'm more of a Lady Gaga girl! LOL!


My TT is at

Jennifer Leeland said...

oooooh!!! Some of these I haven't heard before!
I'll have to play them when I get home from work.
I LOVE "You & Me". It's one of my favorites off that CD.

Ms Menozzi said...

Oh, man... I've not heard any of those - and I love Barenaked Ladies' stuff!

I have *got* to get back in the loop...

Happy TT!

Heather said...

Journeywoman: Isn't that a great song? Been a while since we've heard something new from her, too.

Alice: I take it you approve of my choices? *g*

Sheeley: I like Mayer's music, but I would agree with you that he should keep his mouth shut except when he is singing. LOL

Hazel: I wasn't sure what I thought of these two songs at first, but both have really grown on me.

Heather said...

CountryDew: Thank you, I'm glad you liked some of the selections posted!

Adelle: Thanks, I love the new ME song.

Stephanie: Glad you like, thank you!

Brenda: Thank you, glad you found a couple you like!

Heather said...

Elise: I always find it interesting to see what people like to listen to, and whether it fits your image of them. I listen to many different genres, which is why I like the one local station I usually isten to. They play a lot of new stuff, as well as oldies, blues, reggae, classic rock...a little bit of (almost) everything except rap and hip-hop, which I cannot stand.

Heather said...

Paige: Now see, I am definitely not a Lady Gaga type of person. Just sounds like so much noise to me. lol

Jennifer: As we tend to like a lot of the same music, I had a feeling there would be some here you would like, such as the new DMB.

Ms M: Sorry if I made you feel a bit isolated, but hope you get the chance to enjoy a few of these new songs!

Melissa Mashburn said...

I do not listen to the radio much, so I enjoyed your list. It caught me up on the new music.

Heather said...

Melissa: I've been listening to the radio a lot more since giving up cable beginning of this month. In fact, until I got a HD converter box and antenna set up last night, I could not even get the local channels. Man, I missed the news. And some of my CBS programs.

While I have no difficulty being alone with my thoughts, there were times I needed to either break the quiet or drown out some of my LOUD neighbors, and listening to the radio really helped sometimes.

Alice Audrey said...

Yeah. You've got me. I love how Monty Python- est Chasing Pirates is.

Tatiana Caldwell said...

Don't know where I've been because I haven't heard any of these before, but I enjoyed most of them. Especially the Dave Matthews, Sharon Jones and Parachute.

You can learn so much about a person by the type of music they listen to.

Thanks for sharing!

K.S. Manning said...

Liking this very much. I've missed having my radio at work and my local stations have too much talk on during the commute time.

Alice Audrey said...

So... I hate to say this, but about the Avett Brother's link....

Janice said...

Fearless love sounds like a great title of a romance.

Happy TT.

Sasha Devlin said...

I've not heard any of these yet! Thanks for the new tuneage.

Heather said...

Alice: While I am no fan of Monty Python, I do like the Pirate video. Thanks for letting me know about the Avett Brothers link. Dude, I was just listening to that at work yesterday! Must find new video...

Tatiana: I'm glad someone liked the Sharon Jones song. That woman can sing! I love the 1950's look of the video, too.

KS: Ugh! Who wants to listen to talk talk talk after a long day at work and stuck in traffic? Don't they know music helps reduce stress and road rage??

Janice: Oh, that would be a good title, wouldn't it? Run with it, woman! *g*

Sasha: Gasp! None of them? I hope you found a few you like!

Americanising Desi said...

fearless love is my kinda love and i aint gonna deny it ever!

Ranting n Panting

jillconyers said...

You have a few listed I'm not familiar with so I'm off to check them out. Always looking for new music to add to my iPod.

Heather said...

Desi: That's the attitude! *G*

Jill: I hope you find a few you like!

Small Reflections said...

Kewl '13' ... thanks for taking time to include the links. Wish I had time to sit and listen. Maybe another time.
Hugs and blessings,
