a passion for music

Week 7 of the Wednesday Lists, Part 2
Prompt: List your favorite albums. 

This week's prompt is perfect because I have such a passion for music.  The prompt is for albums, and I do have a few I absolutely love.  You'll notice most of them are soundtracks and compilations though.  I tend to prefer a variety of singers and songs that all have a similar feel.  Yeah, I was that 80s kid who spent hours making mix tapes.  Below are a few favorite albums.  Another time I'll make a playlist or two for you.

* YoYo Ma Plays Ennio Morricone * Painted Desert Serenade by Joshua Kadison * The Road to Here by Little Big Town * Grease soundtrack * Perfectly Clear by Jewel * The V-Discs by Frank Sinatra * Josh Groban * A Christmas Song by Russ Taff * Mona Lisa Smile soundtrack * A New Standard by Steve Tyrell * Come Away With Me by Norah Jones * Now and Then soundtrack * Unforgettable With Love by Natalie Cole * Footloose (original) soundtrack * An Affair to Remember by Emile Pandolfi * Hope Floats soundtrack * Eve's Bayou soundtrack * Love, Nancy by Nancy Wilson * Sleepless in Seattle soundtrack * A Single Woman by Nina Simone * Out of Africa soundtrack * The Best of Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong * Living Out Loud soundtrack * Careless Love by Madeleine Peyroux * Bob Seger's Greatest Hits * Songs From Ally McBeal by Vonda Shepard * Greatest Hits 2 by Toby Keith * all the classical music created for Victoria's Secret by the London Symphony Orchestra * 50 Number Ones by George Strait * The Big Chill soundtrack * American Graffiti soundtrack * Tribute, the Songs of Andrae Crouch * Storm by Fernando Ortega * almost any compilation Pottery Barn ever made *

Hmm . . . Pottery Barn compilations, I've heard nary a one. Perhaps I best get on that . . .

NICE music collection, Relyn! At the moment I'm listening to a lot of Bach... YoYo Ma performing the famed solo cello suites is getting a lot of play time. :o) Happy Days ((HUGS))

I do enjoy Josh Groban and love Come Away With Me by Norah Jones. With my new IPod I am learning to love music once more in my life.

I wish I were into music with such a passion. I have so much "noise" of life that runs through my head, I usually have to sit with lots of quiet to feel relaxation. Or, drive in the car with the windows down. My husband, however, loves his music and I was thrilled to see that my daughter shares his passion. They are always discussing their latest itunes picks.

I see some very dear friends on this yes. Yes, music is magical in so many ways!

Oldies, but Goodies
