Five From My Playlist - 05/12/2006

1) "Tainted Love" - Soft Cell.  Classic 80s.

2) "Green Grass" - Cibelle. This CD is like nothing I've ever heard. Cibelle has a beautiful voice. Some of the CD is a little more than my tastes, but this song is sweet.

3) "The Cross Said It All" - Kim Hopper. This song has an amazing message.

4) "L'Amour" - Carla Bruni. Carla has a beautiful voice. A beautiful voice singing in French is breathtaking. The whole "Queslqu'un m'a dit" CD is fabulous.

5) "Upside Down" - Jack Johnson. Speaking of beautiful voices, I have recently become a devoted fan of Jack Johnson and his soothing melodies.


Artist Spotlight: The 5 Browns

I love to hear the piano. Throw in FIVE pianos, and I am definitely in awe. That's what I came across while downloading music - a talented group of 5 pianists. According to the New York Post, "One family, five pianos and 50 fingers add up to the biggest classical music sensation in years."

You can learn more about the Browns at their website. They currently have two albums available. "No Boundaries" (pictured) is their latest project.


Five From My Playlist - 05/03/2006

1) "Black Horse and the Cherry Tree" - KT Tunstall. This track would fit right in on a Classic Rock station, but it's new.

2) "Standing Still" - Jewel. This ballad has been out a good while, but I really like the lyrics.

3) "Hanging By A Moment" - Lifehouse. Their latest single ("You and Me") is great, but I think this one is awesome.

4) "It's the End of the World As We Know It" - R.E.M. I have always been a fan of R.E.M., and this is my favorite of their songs.

5) "Green Onions" - Booker T. & the M.G.'s. This fun-loving instrumental is an all-time classic.
