Music

I spent some time this morning organizing my i-Tunes playlists, and I realized I have really eclectic tastes in music!! I have rock, pop, 1990's alternative, New Age, bluegrass, folk, country and classical music on my i-Pod, along with dozens of audiobooks.

The "most songs from one artist" goes to: Alison Krauss and Union Station! I've been listening to her since I was a kid. I really can't remember a time when I did not listen to, and love, her music! Second place in the "most songs from one artist" category goes to Enya. I can't remember a time when I did not listen to, and love, her music either!

The"most of any genre" goes to: 1990's Alternative Rock, which is just about as far from Bluegrass and New Age as you can get! But it's totally my favorite genre. Give me some Bush, Better Than Ezra, Collective Soul and Vertical Horizon and I'm a happy girl!

The "most listened to song" goes to: "Abilene" by Runaway Dorothy.

I was introduced to Runaway Dorothy through a podcast about a year ago- and about 3 months before their album officially came out! I contacted the band, to see when the album was going to come out, and was rewarded with a free download- of the whole album! It's called "The Arc". I love it. Runaway Dorothy is awesome. I highly recommend that you check them out!!

Some of my favorite bands (in no real order, but my favorite is first!):
Evanescence, Runaway Dorothy, Sarah McLachlan, Alison Krauss and Union Station, Enya, Daughtry, Lifehouse, Barenaked Ladies, Fergie

And some of my favorite songs (again, no real order, but my favorite is first!):
"Missing" by Evanescence
"Big Girls Don't Cry" by Fergie
"River" by Sarah McLachlan
"Abilene" by Runaway Dorothy
"Shiny Happy People" by R.E.M.
"Far Away" by Nickelback
"Frozen" by Madonna
"In My Life" by Judy Collins

And lastly, my favorite song lyric:

"But stories always end
And if you read between the lines
You'll know that I'm just trying to understand
The feelings that you lack" ~ from "If You Could Read My Mind" by Gordon Lightfoot
