The Listen List

What’s spinnin’ in my ears this week:


1.  “The Northern Soul Scene” by Various Artists  (My latest obsession is northern soul and the compilation collection is growing…)

2.  “Hard Bargain” by Emmylou Harris

3.  “Helplessness Blues” by Fleet Foxes

4.  “Best of Both Worlds” by Van Halen  (when spring is here and the car windows are down, I gots to crank me some Van Halen/Van Hagar)

5.  “Ultimate Collection” by Sade  (she is the original Smooth Operator)


1.  “Feels So Good” by Van Halen  (Just like most folks, I had forgotten this song – a joyful keyboard-driven ditty)

2.  “Nothing But a Heartache” by The Flirtations  (Northern Soul at its best)

3.  “I Love Belarus” by “Anastasia Vinnikova  (A Eurovision 2011 contest entry – with many of the entries this year very mainstream, this stands out at pure Eurovision, country love, pretty awful, but gotta-luv-it slice o’ cheese – this is what makes Eurovision a giant trainwreck you can’t help but watch)

4.  “Go Your Own Way” by Fleetwood Mac  (the “Rumours” themed Glee had me on the FM bandwagon)

5.  “So Far Away” by Carole King
