today's oldies

I've been on the hunt for new music, and in searching for the new, I've turned to the old! I have a couple all-time favorites that I've been in love with since high school and i will go for months, years even, not listening to them, but when they find their way to my ipod, I am always happy. Today, while running at the gym, these two came on the playlist and I was so happy! I had forgotten about these oldies, but goodies.

Hov. How I love thee.

How has Jay Z managed to remain so damn cool? His classic album, in my opinion, is his MTV unplugged, featuring the Roots as his backup band. OH my gandhi. So good.

Fiona. I will name my firstborn after you, be it a girl or a boy.

Ever since Josh introduced her to me, I've been besotten with this woman. She spoke to me and continues to speak to me as I grow older. After my first break up, her songs resonated with newfound meaning. Her songs are like a panacea for the broken heart. Every album is good. If only she was less tempestuous and released more albums on a consistent basis. Waiting a decade for a new album is not fun for your fans, Fiona.

What oldies but goodies do you have on constant rotation?

  1. Duran Duran in all their 80's glory makes me very happy!
