Thank you so much for starting this thread. I've been trying hard to reload my ipod with stuff, and I'm getting all kinds of great ideas here!!!
I will give you guys a few as well. Some are older, some are what I'm liking now:
Well, my absolutely favorite song of all time, that I could just listen to over and over is Bob Marley - No Woman, No Cry.
Here is a song that is slower, old, mad sexy, everything Nina Simone - Feelin' Good
I love everything she does, here is a nice easy song Alicia Keys - I Will Make The Darkness Light
A remake that I love maybe even more than the original by Van Morrison, and the guy singing is from my hometown!!! Colin James - Into The Mystic
I think this song is just beautiful. There is something so powerful about someone who can sit at a piano, play and just sing out Chantal Kreviazuk - Time (Official Video) - RIP Britney Murphy and here's a killer version just her and a piano Time. I heard she was doing stuff performances with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra last year, wish I could have seen it!
I don't even know what you call her kind of music, but its great. It's like R&B meets Doo-Wop meets Jazz meets old time rock n roll. Anyway, totally loving it Divine Brown - Lay It On The Line. No, she is not the Divine Brown that Hugh Grant loved long time.
Music that makes me dance Beenie Man - Back It Up, BLESTeNATION - Cruel Summer, Chaka Demus - Murder She Wrote, Eve - Tambourine.
Some other stuff I like Sean Kingston/Nicki Minaj - Dutty Love, Cutty Ranks - A Who Seh Me Dun, Willie Nelson/Norah Jones - Wurlitzer Prize,
And some mushy music. Love this guy's voice, and the video is so touching Train - Marry Me. My first crush was Nathan Morris, I wonder what ever happened to these guys? Whatever, I bet he's still delicious Boys II Men - End of the Road. Anything by Etta James is always good, and I was even pleasantly surprised at how well Beyonce did portraying her in Cadillac records. You guys have already done some Johnny Cash, he was incredible. Ray Charles, Michael Jackson, Fleetwood Mac...god I love music so much.
And, lest I forget, my WGT soundtrack after I duff a shot. I listen to this A LOT...
