The Listen List

What’s spinnin’ in my ears this week:


1. “Patchwork” & “The Delta Sweete” by Bobbie Gentry (a great songwriter and highly under-appreciated artist)

2. “Hatful of Rain: The Best of Del Amitri” by Del Amitri

3. “Some Guys Have All the Luck” by Rod Stewart (a nice best-of set I got in the UK)

4. “The Best of Cilla Black” by Cilla Black

5. “Rain” by Joe Jackson


1. “The Ice Cream Man” by Lisa Hartman (yes, the TV vixen on her debut album – a deliciously awful slice of cheesy 70’s pop that is totally my style)

2. “Courtyard” by Bobbie Gentry (so quiet, so beautiful)

3. “Somebody Like Me” by Bobbie Gentry (terrific bit of blue-eyed soul)

4. “Bright Lights Bigger City” by Cee-Lo Green

5. “Look At Me Now” by Chris Brown w/Lil Wayne & Busta Rhymes (out of my element here, but something about the weird sound effect and the super fast rap fascinates me)
