Lately I have been listening to Charlie Major. I get in these moods where I will listen to one or two albums for a few weeks and then move on. In the case of Lightfoot, it has been about 28 years I think...

Heh. I'm the same way SM. I get caught on something, and saturate myself with it for awhile, then move on. But always Lightfoot...
I think I've passed that trait on to my son as well..

I've only heard Keith Urban on the radio, but recognize him right away. He's pretty good.

Welcome Killemwithkindness, glad you joined us. Maybe one of these days you'll be interviewing Gord. Good luck with your studies.

SeattleRain, both
I'm further south in Vancouver now, and don't like it much at all.

I'll tie in two of the above thoughts.

First, diversity in life is the key, indeed, LSH! Musically, the artists I stay with for a long time have that diversity -- and it not only keeps ME interested -- it also keeps them around too! As an example, I heard a recent Nick Lowe album about a week ago. This guy has been around as long as Gord, and he's gone from an obnoxious rocker (Basher) to country to balladeer! Take a look also at the older players on the British music scene. A lot of the names from 30 years ago are still touring and strutting their stuff (Al Stewart, Bert Jansch, Richard Thompson, the list goes on...)

Second, I am also one of those who hears something new, and then mercilessly plays the life out of it. In my computer operator days, when I worked shift, my shift partner and I used to bring in one tape or CD - yes, ONE - and play it the whole night through. Again and again and again. Then after a few weeks we'd tire of it and discover something new. In fact, she passed by my desk the other day - we both have different jobs now - and she said that she's found a new band and she's doing it again! They are called Scissor Sisters, and they do rock, pop, dance, glam rock, and electronic. I gave them a listen and it's fun stuff. A few of the songs were not to my taste, but they're to be enjoyed, not to be taken seriously. Again, this all ties in with LSH's point of diversity. They've put the diversity on one album, not through a career of thirty years!

Oh yes, and my overdoing it habit with new things I like is not just limited to music. Maybe one day I'll tell you about the time I discovered Green Tea...

BillW -

I'm just discovering Clannad although my husband has been a huge fan from the beginning. Did you see Maire/Moya last year at The Ram's Head Tavern in Annapolis? She was great! (and beautiful)

I'm also listening to:

Maire/Moya's sib Enya (huge fan)
The Moody Blues
Restless Heart
Brooks and Dunn
Travis Tritt
JOSH GROBAN! (hey - no laughing, people!!)

Just now getting back into Gordon. I love "Lifeline". I was seriously ill for a long time & I was just way too ill to watch TV or even to listen to music. I still love my old favorites but everything feels so new and shiny anymore.

OOPS I guess I missed that one, sounds great.

My last post was awhile ago - right now I'm wearing out Los Lonely Boys - and wondering why their tour schedule is so limited. But they're playing at the Grammys.
