Rarely Have I Been So Pleased With Myself

I made a mix CD, called it simply My Favorites, using a bunch of songs I had stored on itunes on my old computer. I can't believe how happy I am for myself.

Here's the list. It's perfect. It's so perfect.

Devotion...Newsboys
Blessing in Disguise...Lost Dogs
MMMBop...Hanson*
It's My Life...No Doubt
Get Your Way...Jamie Cullum
Hey Man...Nelly Furtado
Blessed...Elton John
Daughters...John Mayer
Learn To Be Still...The Eagles
Everyday is a Winding Road...Sheryl Crow
The World Exploded Into Love...Bob Schneider
One Flight Down...Norah Jones
In Amazing Grace Land...Susan Ashton
We Believe in Happy Endings...Emmy Lou Harris
Easy Silence...Dixie Chicks
How Can I Keep from Singing...Eva Cassidy
Go Light Your World...Kathy Troccoli
The Orphan...Newsboys
Landslide of Love...Newsboys

*I know what you're thinking. I'm not ashamed.

Toe-tapping, fun, tuneful, memorable. I'm never going to get tired of this CD.

Nice. Nice. I see the Newsboys have a strong representation. Love the Kathy T presence. What is it about mixes? They can sometimes change your whole outlook on life. My favorite mixes are my "Afterschool Special" mix and "Your Mom's Christian Music" mix. The former helped me transition from full time mom to full time working mom and the latter reunited me with the salt of the earth, nostalgic christian music of my past. I will be probably be honored posthumously because of them.

Ha! I do the same thing, and I LOVE it. Although now my daughters want me to get an MP3 player. If I do, I know I'll be hopelessly addicted.

I love that I would never in a million years come up with that mix, and yet I think it's ab-fab. The magic of mixes, my friend!

What is it about mixes? I think we love them because albums limited to one artist get boring and repetitive.

There are exceptions. Here are a few that come to mind:

Micheal W. Smith, "Lead Me Home."
U2, every album, "All the Road Running," Emmy Lou Harris and Mark Knofler, John Mayer "Continuum", Newsboys, "Not Ashamed," Amy Grant, "Lead Me On," "The Woman in Me," Shania Twain, "We Are in Love," Harry Connick Jr., "X & Y, Coldplay"

Expand on what you mean by nostalgic Christian music. Are we talking Smitty, Amy and Sandi? Or further back (a la Evie and the Gaithers?)

Variety. Yes, that has to be it...AND the ability to control the music. (Yes, I know I'm a control freak - no need for McGee to point it out thank you very much) If I feel like having "Glory of Love" Peter Cetera in the middle of 6 of my favorite Usher songs, I can totally do it.
As to the genus, species and subspecies of Christian music, I'm talking Susan, 77's, Steven Curtis (Real Life Conversations)Keith Green, Maranatha Singers, Twila, Michael Card, Age to Age (Holla to dropping Jakmeal on the floor, Lois), Big Picture and Go West

I want one.

The Smitty song "Lamu" (or whatever it was) runs through my head a lot.

Weird.

I also picture him in that argyle album cover and wonder.

Have you ever listened to live365 on www.live365.com? I just discovered this site. It's got so many more genres to choose from than launchcast, or at least a wider variety of music that I like. I record some from the stations there (hope it isn't illegal) and listen later on an mp3 player.

You know, D, I've heard of 365live.com. I think other people have directed me there. So why haven't I gone?
