Say It with a Kiss

Happy Tuesday morning everyone! This week’s question is an easy one.

What music is wearing out your speakers lately?

I’m always on the lookout for good tunes. Recently, I’ve been listening to Billie Holiday’s April in My Heart. It’s perfect for the roll-your-windows-down weather we were having and includes great songs like “Here It Is Tomorrow Again,” “Let’s Dream in the Moonlight,” “More Than You Know,” and one of my all time favorites, “Say It with a Kiss.”

  1. When I’m having a rough day, I turn on some Norah Jones and her voice soothes me. I can’t have a bad day while she’s singing ‘Lonestar.’

    Wowsas. If my ipod could talk it would probably scream “No more Andrew Belle!” But I would just tell it, “Be quiet, yo. I love his album “The Ladder.” Also, Sufjan Stevens version of “Come Thou Fount” is beautiful enough to make me laugh and cry at the same time. Great storytelling in lyrics can be found by purchasing Andrew Peterson’s “Counting Stars.” I want life to have a soundtrack. The end. 🙂

      I’ve heard that about Andrew Peterson. I definitely need to put him in my queue. Storytelling is becoming a lost art, especially in music.

    Recently filling my ears:
    – “Patty Griffin Radio” a Pandora station created by a co-worker
    – “Hanky Panky Radio” –not as bad as it sounds! A conglomeration of oldies (as in, “My Baby Does the Hanky Panky”) and Weezer. Pandora hasn’t quite gotten the station right for me, yet, though. I spend far too long tweaking it. And…
    – I’ve been turning up all things that remind me of the beach, summer time, bare shoulders, and sun hats. These include “Red Red Wine”, “Soak up the Sun”, and “Firework”, among others. 🙂

      Had to Google Patty Griffin. (See how important it was for me to ask this week’s question?) I really enjoyed the sampling on I found on YouTube.

      “Hanky Panky Radio” huh? Perfect addition, I’d say, to this “Say It with a Kiss” post.

      And… hooray for Spring and Summer! I do that too with music (ie April in My Heart) and screen savers and toenail polish… especially in Texas; it helps remind me that there are actual seasons.

    I’ll try to keep this short with my favorite stuff over the last few months, that I just keep coming back to:

    Mumford and Sons, “Sigh no More” – British/American Folk. Wow. Wow.
    Andrew Belle, “The Ladder” – Folk-Pop, based in Chicago and Nashville
    Jon Foreman – I know you know him already, but I can’t forget him. I hope he has some more solo stuff coming soon.
    Thad Cockrell, “To be Loved” – country/folk, from North Carolina/Tennessee. Great stuff.
    Andrew Peterson, “Counting Stars” – Renea, you would really like this guy. He tells stories, he reads a ton, he produces albums that are simple in scope, but complex in depth. He’s got another of his albums for free download at right now. It’s called “The Far Country.”

    That’s good for now!

      Mumford and Sons are fun. And I like Foreman and Cockrell; I really really like “To Be Loved.”

      And now you’re the second person to recommend Andrews Belle and Peterson. Putting them in my iTunes wishlist right now. And thanks for the link!
