What Are YOU Listening To?

My commute to work takes between ten and fifteen minutes.  While I'm driving I usually listen to music on The World's Greatest Radio Station, KDHX, or flip over to an AM channel if I want the news headlines or a weather forecast.

Today, though, I wasn't getting music that fit my mood.  It happens.  Every show is unique, since the programmers pick all their own songs.  I decided to see what was in my car's CD changer, which  I haven't browsed in quite a whole.  What an interesting collection!  I had something to fit any occasion:
  • Mama Mia! The Movie soundtrack
  • The Charlie Daniels Band -A Decade of Hits.
  • 100 Days, 100 Nights by Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings
  • Ramones Greatest Hits
  • I Told Ya I love Ya, Now Get Out by Anita O'Day
  • Sky Blue Sky by Wilco


  1. "100 Days, 100 Nights by Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings"

    Fantastic record.

    I don't have a changer, but this is what my iPod says I've been listening to the past week:

    Imogen Heap - Ellipse
    Morrissey - Bona Drag
    Jay Brannon - In Living Cover
    Eddi Reader - S/T

  2. Had to check on this! Found out most of my stuff are my own mixes. Hadn't thought of that before!

    I've got:
    *my mix of easy jazz
    *CCR greatest hits
    *Susan Boyle "I Dreamed A Dream"
    *my mix of Hugh Jackman (yes, he sings!)
    *my mix of Ronan Tynan
    *my mix of Sissel
    *my mix of Michael Crawford

  3. Kathy-I think you're way cooler with music than I am :-) I'm not familiar with most of your artists, or if I've heard them I haven't associated their name with a song.

    Teri-Interesting. Looks like you tend towards semi-classical, big beautiful voices music, but then the CCR jumps in.

  4. Fun! When I worked, I have a 45 minute one way commute...listened to a LOT of things back then! :)

  5. I often listen to the escape channel on satellite radio while I'm driving. They do a lot of Percy Faith of all people, but very relaxing when I get tired of hearing Lady Gaga and Miley Cyrus on the pop channels!

  6. Betsy-I've NEVER had a commute that long, and I don't think I'd enjoy it.

    Christine-I've never voluntarily listened to Lady Gaga or Miley Cyrus, and I'm proud of it!

  7. I've been listening to Paolo Nutini, Adam Lambert, Lady Gaga, and Green Day. :-)
