An iTunes Meme

Gacked from Jeremiah, this is actually pretty perfectly representative of my musical tastes; throw in a little more pop (and a terrible Jim Steinman power ballad or two) and I'm on your iPod.

  1. I love it when folks tell me what's on their i-Pod. These are the best damn toys ever invented.

    I have on the recently played list
    "Battle of New Orleans" -- Jimmy Horton
    "A Song For You" -- Ray Charles (we saw him in KC a few years ago, OMG, he was amazing)
    "Amish Paradise" -- Weird Al Yankovic
    "Millimeter" -- Noa
    "Inspiration" -- Kelley Hunt

    Lately been loading up a lot of old country music, including "T for Texas" by Grandpa Jones, who keeps reaching for his shotgun but it's still fun stuff. I'm listening my way through some Chet Atkins CD's, too. And don't forget Roger Miller!

    I'll check out some of your songs and see if I can download some of them. i-Pods are most fun when there's a lot of surprises in the playlist.
