Cate from Retro Life Style has tagged me to reveal seven songs I've been listening to a lot lately. Obviously, I'm 100% down for this type of tag. If my overenthusiastic bubbling about a song piques your interest, I've provided a link for where you can go hear it.
I talk about Nicola so much on this blog that you probably think she's the voice inside my head or something. You're be 90% right. Nicola is the source of most of what it is good in my life and one of the many examples of that is this song. She introduced me to it and since then, I like to curl up and enjoy it's beauty. I have to stress that this is not the Fleetwood Mac of Stevie Nicks fame, and this song doesn't sound like "Don't Stop". This is the early, British, bluesy Fleetwood Mac, which I prefer.
I'm not surprised if you're surprised about this choice. Frankly, I'm surprised. I've never thought of Black Sabbath as a group I would like, but this is the second song of theirs that I've heard ("Planet Caravan" being the first) and the second that I've really liked.
Marvin Gaye...where do I even begin? His music never fails to make me feel great and his voice is just so soothing. Lately, I've been craving this song to no end.
Nobody else seems to think this title is as great as I do. I feel a spiritual connection to it on a couple levels: the astrology reference was fantastic for someone as obsessed with astrology as I am; I actually am a water sign (and so is George Clinton...Cancers, hollaaaa!), and the wit of it just killed me. I was so pleased that the song itself, a stirring piece about the difficulties of being in love with a mermaid (and one of Parliament's few ballads!) lived up to the title.
Led Zeppelin - Kashmir
If you're in the mood for posting your seven songs du jour, then I declare "Go for it." If not, hey, that's cool, too.
