whenever blue teardrops are falling and my emotional stability is leaving me...

Ten Songs I Can't Stop Listening To, and Where You Can Hear Them Yourself:
1. "The Motivator" by T.Rex
As much as I want to love T.Rex, a lot really doesn't do it for me. However, I can't get enough of this gem. The lyrics, especially, blow me away.
2. "Let's Groove" by Earth, Wind and Fire
If you watched the video of Kayla Hyne responding to your awesome chants, you may have noticed this track playing in the background. Therefore, it was always remind me of Kayla and, even without that awesome connection, is still a very fun song. The video, too, is fantastic entertainment.
3. "You and I" by Rick James
With every passing day, my love for Rick James grows and this song is definitely helping.
4. "Little Miss Lover" by the Jimi Hendrix Experience
I finally acquired Axis: Bold as Love (thanks, Nicola!) and this has emerged as my favourite track.
5. "Sweet Leaf" by Black Sabbath
I gotta say, Black Sabbath is quickly becoming one of my favourite artists and this song is absolutely hard as fuck...and yet, strangely beautiful.

6. "Oh Well" by Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac
It must be reiterated that this is not Stevie Nicks Fleetwood Mac, and has a completely different sound. It's blues rock and it is amazing, particularly this song. If you like this, the full extended version is definitely worth seeking out.
7. "Between the Sheets" by the Isley Brothers
This is babymaking music at its finest.
8. "Aint No Thang" by Outkast
Old-school Outkast, Southern-fried and rad...does Andre 3000 ever do me wrong?
9. "Be My Beach" by Funkdelic
Absolutely fantastic, as usual.
10. "Sexual Healing (a cappella)" by Marvin Gaye
Everyone knows the original, but the a cappella version has been stripped down to the absolute essentials and always blows me away. And as a bonus, it keeps the original final line that had been snipped from the single version: "Please don't procastinate, it's not good to masturbate".

I loooove Sexual healing, and especially the a cappella version! I will never grow tired
of it..ever.

And I loved your comment! I find myself saying 'Is pig what's in pork?' quite often now, though I have to say it in Norwegian and it just doesn't have the same effect :P

I hate being at work right now because I can't listen to any of these :( but at least it will give me some hometime fun! I've never heard music from Fleetwood Mac pre Stevie so I'm really looking forward to that little gem.

I just learned to play "Sweet Leaf" on my bass not so long ago. It is a beautiful song. The lyrics are kind of goofy though, in true stoner spirit.
