Did I ever find a gem

Well, i am closing in on 8,000 30,000 songs on my computer. To be honest, it has become a sort of addiction and I like to collect songs. I’ll have you know that these are not just any songs that I can get my hands on. That would be much to easy to increase the amount. Rather, all of these songs are songs that I know and enjoy. Oftentimes I will let iTunes just play songs randomly and I love to hear all the songs. There is everything from Les Miserables to Willie Nelson to Ying Yang Twins to Mr Rogers greatest hits. (That last one is a really fun cd.)

Well, every once and a while you come across a song that is a great find. i call them my gems. They are usually by a little known artist, and they are songs that I can just listen to over and over again. “Divide me” by Kalai was one of those songs. Well, I found a song recently that has joined the ranks. It is a song called “Winter” by Joshua Radin. He has such a mellow voice and great harmonization. He also has another great song called “Today”, but “Winter” is something special. Visit the Itunes Music Store and take a listen. They are GREAT!!

One last thing, speaking of mellow voices and great sound, did all of you hear/see james taylor play the national anthem at the World Series!! I was so excited, I didn’t know he was going to be playing, but when I turned on the tv it had a close up of hands on a guitar and I was like, “OH MY GOSH!!! THOSE ARE JAMES TAYLORS HANDS!!!!” I was excited. (Before you call that psycho, I recognize his hands because I watch them when I am trying to learn his music.”

Finally, on Nov 1st James Taylor is going to release his first ever Christmas album . It will only be sold at Hallmark. I have not heard it yet, but as you can imagine, I am very very very very excited. I will be there first thing that morning. I am going to try and get at least 100 people to buy it. That is my goal. Please let me know if you get it so I can keep track. I also want to know what you think of it.
