“ He sings the songs that remind him of the good times.”
Hello and Happy Friday to you, dear reader.
Welcome to Week #2 of The Listening Booth.
I’ve been thinking of the easiest methods to employ to ensure that this post happens every week as promised. You’ll be pleased to know that all 520 tracks have now been chosen (I know I am). I’ve listed them alphabetically by artist because this seemed the best means for checking no repeat artists/bands as per criteria for this challenge. Having gone through the list, I’ve noticed that the genres are suitably mixed up enough to upload them in their current running order. So yes, you may get songs from 10 artists with names beginning in “T”, but it’ll be the most interesting list of Ts you’ve ever set eyes on!
In addition, each post will feature a song lyric quiz or a music trivia quiz question to whet your appetite for conversation with other visitors – and to push me into improving my responses. After all, you’ve kindly trekked all the way over here, the least I could do is to not give one-word answers.
Answer to last week’s song lyric quiz:
Title: My Girl
Artist: The Temptations
I thought we’d start with something easy. See how you get on with this week’s song lyric. And now for what you’ve come here for: this week’s tracks.
Title: We Need a Resolution
One to get the party started.
Title: The Name Of The Game
Album: The Album
They just know how to put a pop song together, don’t they?
Title: Concerto For Violin, Oboe & Strings In D Minor, BWV 1060, I. Allegro
Artist: Academy Of St Martin-in-the-Fields
Album: J. S. Bach – Brandenburg Concertos 1-6
Just an uplifting piece of music.
Title: One Song Glory
Artist: Adam Pascal
Album: The Best Of Rent: Highlights From The Original Cast Album
The song that made me pay attention to the musical.
Title: Hiding My Heart
Album: 21 [Deluxe Edition]
From the first time I heard this song, it just drew me in. Simple. Beautiful.
Album: Young Lust
That mouth. That voice. And the fact that they mix blues with hard rock? I’m sold.
Title: My Straight Path
Album: No Attachments
A little modern progressive rock for you.
Title: Old Time Lovin’
Artist: Al Green
Album: Let’s Stay Together
So many wonderful tracks to choose from, but this one makes me swoon every time.
Title: Hands Clean
Artist: Alanis Morissette
Album: Under Rug Swept
She had me at “Jagged Little Pill” and just kept getting better. This track has seen a lot of action on the record player.
Title: Black Velvet
Artist: Alannah Myles
Album: Alannah Myles
A great sing-a-long and feelgood track. After three now … “Mississippi in the middle of a dry spell”
