iTunes Celebrity playlist


Okay…I’m not a celebrity, and I don’t play one on T.V. But I do have a playlist. And some of ’em aren’t on iTunes.

1. Tougher Than The Rest Bruce Springsteen. Best love song ever written. Ever.

2. Little Girl Blue Janis Joplin. When she sings, “I know you’re unhappy…honey I know just how you feel…” you know she ain’t lyin’.

3. Add It Up Violent Femmes. I’ve waited my whole life for just one…

4. Come To My Window Melissa Etheridge. “I would dial the numbers just to listen to your breath.” That is the hottest lyric ever written. Ever.

5. SidewaysLet’s Go Sailing. I just can’t get sick of this song.

6. TumblingGumball. Obligatory obscure song that makes people say, “Look at how funky she is! I will never be hip.” Actually, a very cool song from an awesome CD.

7. KayleighMarillion. Because it reminds me of 1985. But in the good way.

8. Coming Up Close Til Tuesday. How many songs can make you feel homesick even when you’re home?

9. Pink Cadillac Bruce Springsteen. Natalie Cole should never have been let within a mile of this song. Never.

10. Sunday Morning Coming Down Johnny Cash or Kris Kristofferson. Either version. Just a great song.

    What a great list! Some old favorites of mine on the list, as well as some that I am not familiar with. But, I will definitely have to check them out.
    (Of course I love the Violet Femmes and think I have blogged about them before, but I really adore Janis Joplin. Good to see her make your playlist!)
