Music To Your Ears

I am always looking for good new music. I love finding that new song that really gets you shaking your butt while doing the dishes. I clean better, fold laundry better, and cook better when I have a good CD playing, but I also have a higher tendency to mess up my recipes while I am movin' and a groovin' to the latest toons... but I still can't help it.

So, hopefully this new list of music will continue to help increase your music knowledge.

I Got You Babe - UB40

Say - John Mayer

Hung Up - Madonna

I'm Yours - Jason Mraz

Grace Kelly - MIKA

See You Again - Miley Cyrus ( okay I am a little embarrassed by this one, but I can't help it... it is sooo catchy... even my hubby likes it!)

I Don't Feel Like Dancin' - Scissor Sisters

Viva La Vida - Coldplay

Let It Be Sung - Jack Johnson & Matt Costa

Bleeding Love - Leona Lewis

Hips Don't Lie (feat. Wyclef Jean) - Shakira

Okay, so maybe not all of them are rock sessions, but they are either catchy mellow or peppy fun! Enjoy

  1. I listen to more anti-social stuff, but you're right. Life is just better with music. I have music on almost all the time in the house. It's almost like I'm afraid of silence.

  5. After reading a review and listening to samples online, I picked up the CD "Ta-Dah" by Scissor Sisters a few years ago. "I Don't Feel Like Dancing" is my favorite tune on the album. Some of the songs by Miley/Hannah are catchy as hell; I love "Nobody's Perfect"!

  10. I love your list! We have lots of similar music tastes. I also can't get enough of Grace Kelly (Mika). I love the Queen I hear in it :)

  11. Have you heard of Joshua Radin? I'm a Mayer/Mraz fan and I love his music. If you have iTunes, he has a new single out called "Sky," and a lot of his stuff has been on Scrubs :).

  14. I'm also an embarrassed appreciator of that Miley Cyrus song - it's too catchy not to like it!

  15. I must live under a rock because I only know a few of those. We never listen to the radio unfortunately, but when we do its always 80's cause we love us some 80's music!

  16. I'm currently stuck on Leona Lewis too. Bleeding Love plays almost daily in my car...

  17. I like most of these songs. Thanks for reminding me I need to buy them to put on my IPOD for my own kitchen cleanups.

  18. Great list! I love having music on, ALL the time. But if I really want to clean, fold laundry, etc. - you get it, haha - music is the way to get it done! :)

  19. Just wait until your kids are old enough that they think THEY should be able to choose the music. I do let them but I reserve veto power. Unfortunately, sometimes that results in my feeling like an absolute tyrant. "No! Not that. I can't stand that. You think that's music? That's not music!!!" Love it when John's home and I get some support. (Only problem is that John is so far the other way that he doesn't think ANY popular music is worth listening to.)

  20. Grace Kelly is a good song!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Great list. Some of my faves were in there, but on the top of my list is Bleeding Love.

  23. I like Miley's song too, but I can use the excuse "I have an 8yr old daughter who loves Hannah Montana."
    :P

  26. *new song by Leona Lewis* my typing leaves a lot out.. I think its because my brain is working so fast my hands can't keep up (thats what I tell myself at least)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Have you heard Miley's newest "7 things"??? We're Miley fans here too! :o)

    ReplyDelete
  28. We definitely have a lot of the same taste in music. And, I feel exactly the same way about Miley's song, but you just can't help but sing along when it comes on the radio!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I'm laughing at the Miley one ... I have to say that I agree with you. It is catchy. :)

  35. I actually think Miley Cyrus is very talented. I don't really listen to her, but her voice is very nice. :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. Hips Don't Lie ROCKS. That song always puts me in a good mood. I had a friend who used it as her ring tone. lol

    ReplyDelete
  37. I have really liked the Bleeding Love song, too.

  38. a dear friend from the UK mailed me the MIKA cd a few months ago. I absolutely adore it, and it's so different than my typical music collection!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I will have to give some of these a listen.
    I am usually forced to listen to something from Kidz Bop or Preschool Pops!
    How did this happen?
