Some of my other all-time favorites are Deano (Dean Martin is my dream man), Henry Mancini, Brazilian music (I have a collection of cds so the music plays for hours), and a number of the Putumayo Presents French cds. We used to have an incredible international records store at Peachtree Center in Atlanta. It was so much fun to go in and visit with the owner. He really knew his music. Sometimes on Fridays when I was having a bad day I would hop the train at lunch headed for the shop in search of a Friday mood adjustment. When I would get to the shop I tell the owner what kind of mood I was in and he would always say he knew just the sound I was looking for, then hand me something new to listen to. He got me hooked on listening to lots of things that are no longer heard on the radio, but well worth hearing. Trapped in a time warp....hmmm, maybe.
Have you ever listened to the soundtrack from Woman on Top? I loved the movie and the music makes me happy.
And I almost forgot BASIA! The beautiful Polish singer/songwriter who performs with her sister! I love that, as my sister and I still sing together. At Basia's last Atlanta performance my sister and I went and had the pleasure of meeting and sitting with former CNN news anchor, Mile O'Brian and his lovely wife. Anyway, my sister and I kept whispering through the show how the backup singer's voice sounded so similar to Basia's and she looked a bit like her too. Before the night was over, she introduced her band - and her sister! How cool is that!
Happy Saturday! What are you listening to today?
