The Listen List

The haps in my head this week:

Albums

1.  “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” – Audio Book  (yes, not music, but I had to do a road trip and grabbed this. Glad I did. Now I’ll have to watch the film version.)

2.  “Stone Rollin'” by Raphael Saadiq  (excellent retro soul)

 

3.  “Beauty and the Beat – 30th Anniversary Edition” by the Go-Go’s  (one of my top favorites from the 80’s and it is still fresh and vibrant as ever – plus a pretty descent disc of a 1981 concert)

4.  “In My Dreams” by Stevie Nicks  (sounding more Fleetwood Mac-ish than she has in years)

5.  “Robyn” by Robyn

Songs

1.  “Our Lips Are Sealed” by the Go-Go’s  (I played “We Got the Beat” on steady repeat back in the day, but over time this chugging song is really the crown jewel of the album)

2.  “Heart Attack” by Raphael Saadiq

3.  “The Sweetest Taboo” by Sade

4.  “In for the Kill” by La Roux

5.  “I’ll Hold You” by Frankie & Johnny  (another brilliant slice of northern soul)
