Musical Phases

Okay, so I go through little phases where I focus on a few old songs and that's all I listen to for a little while. Well, here's my "tops" list on my iPod right now (meaning the phase I'm going through right now).

  1. Hallelujah - Jeff Buckley
  2. There Goes My Life - Kenny Chesney
  3. Are You Alright? - Lucinda Williams
  4. Bless the Broken Road - Rascal Flatts
  5. Patience - Guns N' Roses
  6. Ain't That a Shame - Fats Domino
  7. I'll Stand by You - Carrie Underwood (I remember when the Pretenders first came out with this song, I absolutely LOVED it, I was so excited when Gina Glocksen did it on Idol this year! Awesome song).
  8. Don't Matter - Akon
  9. One More Try - Timmy T (remember this one Linlee???)
  10. Hide and Seek - Imogen Heap
  11. Ooh Child - Beth Orton
  12. I Tried - Bone Thugs-N-Harmony feat. Akon
  13. Let's Get It On - Marvin Gaye
  14. In My Mind - Heather Headley
  15. Lips of an Angel - Hinder
  16. Unfaithful - Rihanna
  17. It's Your Love - Tim McGraw & Faith Hill
  18. Photograph - Nickelback
  19. Sleepwalk - Santo & Johnny
  20. Far Away - Nickelback

Okay, before you say anything, I know these aren't ALL old songs, but these are the songs I've been listening to the most lately. Has anyone noticed the amount of songs I listen to lately that refer to cheating? Maybe now I just realize what they're about because I'm listening for it. I've never been one that's too much into lyrics, I'm more of a music girl.

I remember one of my music classes in college - the professor said that most people in the world listen to lyrics, while only a few listen to the actual music being played. I have to say - I have always listened to the music being played. That's why I like a lot of classical music - plus one of the songs on the list above doesn't have any lyrics. It was pretty neat - before she mentioned that, she played a series of songs and we had a quiz on what they were about. I honestly couldn't answer one question - I was the only one in the class. I thought I flunked big time. I felt like a complete heal - turns out, I was the only one that got an A.

Music is something I just feel.

Yeah I remember, good old
Remember Ditty? God I couldn't get enough of that song.

Yeah, it's too funny - I was getting ready for the shower Saturday morning and Ditty came on the radio! I thought it was too fitting...I forgot to tell you that.

Great list.
I wish my goofy music software did a top played list.

Lately I have been listening to Death Cab for Cutie and Augustana. Kinda driftin' away from country, seems they all sound so similar these days.

I miss Garth!!!!
