What I've been listening to....

I know James Blunt has been out for a while, but if you've been on the fence because the song "Beautiful" was just too sensitive sounding - don't be fooled. This cd is fantastic. He's an amazing lyricist, and this cd is absolutely a "must have". Check out "Goodbye my Lover", and "Tears and Rain". This cd is worth it if for nothing other than those two songs. Something about him reminds me slightly of David Gray....

Jules Shear has a new cd out that is excellent. "Dreams don't count" is a beautiful, poetic cd that makes you long for sitting in a coffee house with a good latte, and watching the rain beat down against the windows. This is no Starbucks coffee house I'm talking about either...I mean a down home, good ol' fashioned coffee house from "back in the day".

Sonya Kitchell - who IS a Starbuck's "darling" is definitely a good take. And, I think she's from Masschusetts as well, so just another reason for me to like her. ;)

Check them out and let me know what you think!

I recently finished Bill Simmons book "Now I can Die in Peace" about the Red Sox winning the championship and I thought of you often. Hope that everything is well.

Just can't get into James Blunt. I'm on the other side of the fence.

I do like the song Beautiful, but never considered buying the cd because I didn't want 15 songs like Beautiful. Maybe I'll have to give it a chance.

What else is new in Rebecca's corner?
