Just discovered this one: Love it!
Wanting Memories by Sweet Honey in the Rock
Written by Ysaye M. Barnwell
if you are a john hiatt fan, give a listsen to his latest cd "mystic pinball"...he just keeps getting better and better!
Of my close to 16,000 music files, this song and their performance of it, is definitely in the top half of my top five songs. Just can't get enough of it:
thank you petals for the reminder of Charles Aznavour...i never tire of his quiet, evocative voice....there sometimes is a twinge of such sadness and melancholy in his music, but whenever i hear him the hair on all my being just tingles.... no one touches him( well maybe Bocelli). El Curi reminds me of Aznavour a bit...do you know his music? he is a spaniard living in cuba...he sings of the sea, cuba and of course, women and amore! his cd "el habanera de la habana" is just lovely...Como la Espuma (like the foam) Pendiento Vivo Del Mar'(slope of the Sea) and Habanero are just a few of my favorites...hope you enjoy him
wifi here is spotty so i won't frustrate you by trying to download via youtube...google is best i think...
Been listening to a lot tonight. Anything that is good to sing to especially when in the kitchen.
Who doesn't love a good Cello or 2...

Been listening to the Mavericks new CD : IN TIME
Songs favorites so far : Come unto me (and the Spanish version : ven hacio mi)
Call me when you get to heaven - oh what a song !
The video is out for the first one , don't know about the second. Hope to see them play if they pass this way.
petals, so great to see you back and posting...you were sorely missed.....any photos of your new creations?
i adore anything by the Mavericks so am looking forward to adding their new cd to my collection......speaking of nice voices, check out Boz Scaggs new cd, "Memphis"......voice still as smooth as silk
Ok.with a stupid lap top, I guess start all over here. Since I'm the new kid on the block, and no not them! Sounds like all ya'll have been into my vinyl collection. My all time favorite is Mr. Chris Rea ! Mark Knopfler comes in a close 2nd tho. Might use the turn table tho and do some Jethro Tull, Babe Ruth, UFO, Deep Purple,Nils Lofgren, Skynard,and a lot more. being raised in Flint , Michigan and going to school with the members of Grand Funk Railroad, well music has always been apart of my soul!
I've been listening to a lot of Within Temptation lately and trying to listen to similar bands, my favorite band is Evanescence i have always loved them and i like some Marion Raven, Maria Digby and Michelle Branch, i sometimes love a bit of All American Rejects to and Dashboard Confessional.
