I've not been a music girl. But sometimes I get really passionate. Like for the Highwaymen.

I find, though, that my interest is rekindling. Two recent favorites:

Regina Spektor. N & I went to see her a year or so ago, which is very rare for me. Our friend Greg happily forced us into it, and I love her. Quirky, gentle, humorous, genuine, and such a voice! You can play much of her music straight from her website, here:

Just discovered Lisa Hannigan. So lovely. Plus, she's crafty. Her album, Sea Sew, features embroidered song lyrics. AND, this music video: A room of papercuts! I love everything about this video: her simple style, the suitcase (I've been buying them up lately--$1 for any at our local thrift store!), the blue walls, the smiles, and all the snipping...

I love Regina Spektor too! I have her "begin to hope" album. She has such a real, amazing voice.

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!! I am immediately stealing this video for my blog (giving you credit, of course). You knew I would do this, didn't you?
