Tagged - My Tunes...

I was tagged by Lorette, The Knitting Doctor, so here's a random look at what's in my iPod - I turned it on "shuffle" and here are the first 12 tunes to come up-

......an odd little look into what rocks my world:

1. All for Love- Rod Stewart. I LOVE his love songs album. I walked miles and miles listening to Rod while I was training for my 3-day walk a few years ago.

2. I Can Only Imagine - Mercy Me. This is from my current "walking" playlist, which is chock full of praise music.

3. Always On My Mind - Elvis. How can you not love a little Elvis, although I prefer Willie Nelson's cover of this song.

4. The Lord's Prayer - Il Divo. OH. MY. Have you heard these guys.... more important, have you seen these guys! Wait - given that they're singing the Lord's Prayer- I probably shouldn't go there...

5. You Make Lovin' Fun - Fleetwood Mac. Love them. Takes me back to the early 80's when the hubby and I first met (smile).

6. Casino Royale - Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass. Good Stuff. Happy music. My mom used to listen to this when we were kids, now MY kids love it.

7. A Long Way Home - Dwight Yokum. Come on.... there are just some times when nothing but some good old twangy Dwight music will do.

8. Channel Z - The B-52's. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the B-52's!!

9. Message In a Bottle - The Police. Some more good music from the era where the hubby and I began...

10. Linus and Lucy - Vince Guaraldi Trio. My kind of Jazz. I love this entire CD (Peanuts Christmas Album).

11. The Holly and the Ivy - George Winston. More Christmas music. I have a LOT of Christmas music. George Winston is THE MOST brilliant pianist ever. I'm going to be him when I grow up... or Charlize Theron. Wait, I want to play like George and look like Charlize.... that's the ticket. Anyway, I digress - I have a LOT of George Winston music.

12. Take It Easy - Eagles. I LOVE singing along with the Eagles - they are perfect for me. I can figure out all harmonies and they're always in just the right key for my low alto voice (such as it is). Probably my all time favorite to sing to.

Hmmmm, that's kind of fun to do, and a little interesting to see what pops up. Consider yourself tagged if you'd like!

In fibery news, now that I'm a "stasher"- check out that beautiful Cascade Ecological Wool up there! I don't know if it's a new yarn altogether, or just new to my LYS, but I saw it for the first time last week. I talked myself out of buying it that day, and have been thinking of it ever since! But, really - when a $25 Gift Cert turns up in your mailbox for the very same LYS, well, duh..... it just means I was meant to have it!

This some nice stuff!, and surprisingly soft for yarn that is supposed to be "minimally processed." It's not all rough and twiggy like some minimally processed wool, but very smooth and pretty - AND, it and comes in a HUGE skein of 487 yards! It smells heavenly, too.

I'm thinking it may become Starsky some day. All that 80's music has me feeling a little retro.

Lynda - we could be walking buddies - I love your music choices! You are a girl after my own heart - my mom listened to Herb Albert and the Tijuana Brass too! I have no iPod, but I will work on what I have in my cd player this afternoon. Have a blessed day Lynda!

cool tunes! i really enjoyed the eagles concert i went to and i was surprised at how many of their songs i actually knew. that song "i can only imagine" was played at a funeral for one of my friends' sisters. it was so sad and sweet at the same time. i think of her whenever i hear that song.
man, i've got six skeins of cascade heathers in a celery color that i devoted to that starsky pattern! jeez. i almost envy you for having a smaller stash than mine because i always get distracted looking at all the different yarn in my stash waiting to get knit up; almost as if having less yarn would increase the probability that i finish projects. hehe.

Great music choices! I especially love I Can Only Imagine - one of my most favourites :0)

Hi Lynda-person-who-has-made-Rogue. :O) Can I email you a question or 40 about your Rogue experience??

I love singing to the Eagles, too! I listen to the greatest hits CDs quite often, they are great for relaxing!

I love that Starsky pattern, I forgot all about that one!

I dig your music Lynda. It's all different and good.

I now have that dang "message in a bottle" song in my head. Thanks. ;)

Great choices of music. Love the Eagles, Rod, Jazz and I just bought one of my girlfriends the Il Devo CD. That's it a lot of yards for one ball, good going!

I have never heard of cascade's ecological wool, but your choc version looks so good.

Love your tunes... I Can Only Imagine is one of my favorites... as in anything by Willie Nelson. I just got the Mercy Me CD from Amazon.

I almost used the Eco Wool for my Starsky. It's a great buy. I ended up using Knit Picks Sierra... loved the pattern (But true to my style, I finished it last June and still need to weave in ends.)

Now that you're a stasher, you'll have to let me know when Stasher's stress sets in. That's when denial fades away for a moment and you realize that (1)you can never possibly knit all you want out of what you have so (2)how can you justify buying more. Don't worry though... I have found ways around this 2nd problem. Rationalization is one of my specialties. :)

You little stinker. You went out and bought the stuff and I wasn't even invited!

We do it again! Although I don't have an IPod, we are on the same track (no pun intended) with our music taste. When I found the Peanuts Christmas CD at Starbucks, I nearly had a personal accident I was so excited! Rod Stewart, Dwight Yoakum, The Eagles...great music! I, too, "can only imagine."

Do you have my Ipod?

Great music choices! I especially like the "Dwight"; how did I miss that one on my list?
