On the box now is "It's Not Big It's Large", Lyle Lovett's newest. And since you asked, it's slower and less playful than his earlier works, though he still doesn't take himself too seriously. Very nicely produced, you can hear clearly why you spent a small fortune on speakers.

It was a pop music weekend with nothing really new, except I had to download a couple of tunes to help get them out of my head.

Most heard were:

Colorful - Rocco Deluca (drink like its water girl!)
Short Skirt/Long Jacket - Cake
Bohemian Like You - Dandy Warhols
What I Like About You - The Romantics

With a bunch of other stuff between.

I did play Short Skirt/Long Jacket enough times to satisfy the ear worm, but then my husband asked me if he could help me this morning, so I said "Yeah, I need some short white socks" to which he replied "Are you wearing a looonnng jacket?" (apparently he heard the song a bit too much) and now it's stuck in my head again.

R.J.:

I was looking at your list and wondering if recommending ALL of them to ALL of us was a good idea. I mean, it WAS quite a varied list and a lot of people who adore the Beatles don't much care for the likes of Fugazi, e.g.,

Then I though some more and came to the conclusion that everyone SHOULD sometimes act without prior knowledge and expectation, other than someone said it was a worthy listen. No discussion about styles and instrumentations and lyrics and gender. These are good - try them. The worst that could happen is that you find it's not YOUR cup of tea. I mean, there are countless ways you can "taste" them without buying. Or, buying at much less than the going retail rate.

So, yeah, it sounds good to me. And I haven't a clue who Mason Jennings is. I bet I'll find out, though.

Several singers that I enjoy have been releasing Christmas cds over the past couple of weeks. So I've been busy collecting their Christmas albums lately.

A co-worker told me about a guy she saw singing on Oprah's show last week. His name is Paul Potts. His cd is called One Chance. He was a contestant on Britain's Got Talent. He sings love songs in Spanish and Italian.

WOW! Ten pages of great stuff. I've made a bunch of notes and I'm building a playlist that will air on Wizard Radio On-Line tomorrow.

Right now (Sunday Night, all night long) we're playing a program of Big Band and Standards....

At this moment we're playing David Buskin, "When I Need You Most of All" from the When October Goes album.....

Continuing my review of 2007:

Avett Brothers - Emotionalism
Buffalo Tom - 3 Easy Pieces
Junior Senior - Hey Hey My My Yo Yo (who says dance music can't be fun to LISTEN to?)
Lavender Diamond - Imagine our Love
Meat Puppets - Rise to Your Knees
Okkervil River - The Stage Names
Panda Bear - Person Pitch
Rilo Kiley - Under the Black Light
John Vanderslice - Emerald City
Wilco - Sky Blue Sky

(Someday, I'm actually going to go thru one of the "monster" years of the untouchable mid to late 60's (when all great rock was "invented") and compare the great albums to, say, 2007. Once I get past the iconic figures like the Beatles, Stones, Hendrix, etc., I think the choices will get much leaner much quicker in comparison to today. I only say that because half the people who evaluate music of today begin by suggesting there is nothing much to listen to. What ARE those people listening to?

Okay, now's the time for you kids to start laughing at the old man...I don't care, honestly. But you asked, so I'm going to answer! After 50 long years, two of the many albums Roberta Sherwood recorded for Decca have been released on CD. I first saw a performance by, and afterwards met, Miss Sherwood when I was in Jr. High (I think that's called Middle School now) when my parents took a girlfriend and me with them to see her at a famous Kentucky night club called the "Beverly Hills" (which later made headlines when it burnt to the ground.) I had very permissive parents (obviously!) and I guess I picked up their more mature appreciation of music. Roberta was riding the crest of her popularity at the time (around 1958) having been discovered by the powerful Broadway columnist, Walter Winchell, and already well into middle-age had become a major nightclub headliner across the world, a frequent guest on Sullivan, slamming a cymbal with a drum brush and singing a bombastic, never to be forgotten version of Hoagy's classic, "Up a Lazy River." She was billed as a torch singer, but could sing literally anything with a unique and inimitable voice and style. If any old-timers (besides me) ever look at these lists, or if any of you young ones actually enjoy ALL types of music...look up "Introducing Roberta Sherwood." She was a wonderful lady, a great entertainer, and a one-of-a-kind show biz phonomenon.

Well, ever since last weekend, pretty all I've had on is Wyclef. Mostly The Preacher's Son and Ecleftic, but also Carnival. Plus I threw on the South Park album with Bubble-goose, and I did have to play a live version of the Spin Doctor's Mary Jane.

I just put his new album on pre-order.

E. Dill-
I think it's a wonderful idea to suggest everything to everyone. Like you said, simply suggesting doesn't imply that you must LIKE them. But keep an open mind. I really love the Beatles, I dare to say there would be someone who loved them more...yet, Fugazi and the Fav hit a chord in me that no other can. If you are a person who loves music, than good music should come in all forms. And Mason Jennings is a singer/songwriter that I find brilliant and unique in every fashion. And just so you know, I do realize that in the end you did agree with me...but that first statement of yours demanded my attention. As far as I can tell, this discussion was originated on suggestions for other people of what to listen to. And me, I am open for discussion. I highly recommend that you aquire some Mason Jennings. You can find him on Myspace. Let me know what I should check out.

Right now I'm listening to:
Raise the Roof- Andrew Lippa's The Wild Party- I think Julia Murney beats the sh** out of that song! :D
Barely Breathing- Duncan Sheik- I have also been listening to Spring Awakening which Duncan co-wrote with Steven Sater.... my older sis got me into this song (Barely Breathing)... I listen to this constantly.
RENT soundtrack- Jonathan Larson is a genius! R.I.P.- Feb. 4, 1960- Dec. 25, 1996
Idina Menzel's solo albums and anything that she has been in (Wicked or RENT)- This woman never ceases to amaze me! When I heard her sing Defying Gravity, I became in love with her voice! It's so powerful! :D So now I'm a hardcore Idina fan, lol! She's also a fantastic songwriter- her new album "I Stand" comes out Jan. 29, 2008.
Oh, and can't forget 96.5 (Kiss FM).
Basicly, I'll listen to anything except for country music.. but right now I'm going through a Broadway-obsessed phase! LOL! So Spring Awakening, RENT, Wicked, and some other musicals like Jersey Boys gets played constantly! ;) Drives my parents crazy! Isn't that the point? Hehehe
