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: http://www.reginaspektor.com/index2.html
Just discovered Lisa Hannigan. So lovely. Plus, she's crafty. Her album, Sea Sew, features embroidered song lyrics. AND, this music video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WSaPbVjcrp4 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...
