I know, because of the comments from last week, that many of you enjoy reading…
Ten on Tuesday
The theme for Ten on Tuesday is 10 Great Songs from the Last Year. Well. I don’t listen to new music very much so instead I chose the 10 most recent songs I’ve played on my iPod. I know that’s not quite in keeping with the theme but my blog – my rules.
1. I Couldn’t Live Without Your Love by Petula Clark
2. This Guy’s In Love With You by Herb Alpert
3. Let the Mystery Be by Iris Dement
4. Somewhere Over the Rainbow by Israel Kamakawiwo’ole
5. Downtown by Petula Clark
6. Sea Cruise by Frankie Ford
7. Summer Wind by Frank Sinatra
8. One Particular Harbor by Jimmy Buffett
9. Breathe In, Breathe Out, Move On by Jimmy Buffett
10. Dirty Water by the Dropkick Murphys
And there you have it. I didn’t realize I was such a Petula Clark fan. And I bet you didn’t realize I was such a dork.

I think you have excellent taste!
I think I’ve gone back in time. Nice list.
I could hear them all in my head as I read them – all apart from the Jimmy Buffet ones – I’ll have to go to you tube and investigate him, thanks
Yup! your blog – your rules. I wouldn’t be able to meet the original rules as well as I usually listen to Classical, though your play list would be quite enjoyable as I love so many kinds of music.
I’ve never even heard of most of those people! Must review.
I have # 4 and 5 of your list on my iPod as well. 🙂
One Particular Harbor is my “escape” song – when I’m stressed and need to relax – that’s where I go!
Obviously your heard some of these songs in utero. I on the other hand was swaying to the beat with Howard Devol at a Saturday night high school dance!
Nice list! I started to do this then couldn’t figure out what songs were last year and what ones were this year and then I couldn’t look them up and then it was midnight…this one was just too much work. *sigh*
Oh, excellent list! No Doris Day?
Mine’s a little different. I’m looking at the CD’s on the coffee table. Handel’s Chandos Anthems with Ian Partridge. La Monica, The Amorous Lyre (old Spanish music). More Handel, Mark Padmore, Lucy Crowe & Andrew Manze. Salve Regina, Robin Blaze (an amazing countertenor) singing old Venetian music. Vivaldi’s Andromeda Liberata with Venice Baroque. So, um, nothing written after 1740 or so… Guess I should dig in the stash for something wildly modern like a Mozart fortepiano concerto, eh?
If you are a dork, then I am one too. I think I have almost all of them on my ipod too…
Ah, the Dropkick Murphys.
Aw, I love Izzy’s Somewhere Over the Rainbow. I first heard it on public radio one morning and emailed the station to find out who sang it, then got the CD from the library so I could rip the song to my computer. (Yay, libraries; boo, DRM. I went on to buy several of his CDs.)
You think you’re a dork? I don’t even own an iPod.
I enjoy Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass. My parents have the album with the woman that has whippend cream all over her, I think it was called Whipped Cream and Other Delights. That cover was so seductive for 1965! They have a great Christmas album too.
I think Carrie may be too young to read your blog.
I didn’t bother with the ten today. I rarely listened to the radio when there was a semi-okay station in town. Now there’s no radio station that plays my kind of music.
Wow… how old do I sound? *L*
Dork? I dunno, I think I’d enjoy listening to that list.
I cannot bear Iris Dement’s voice for more than 2 minutes. Isn’t that odd? I want to like her, I like her in theory, I just can’t stand her voice.
I remember all of those songs!! Teehee…guess we are about the same age. I haven’t heard a few of those in a while and that makes me want to go download them…. GREAT taste!
I didn’t do that one either – because I haven’t listened to current music in ages! I listen to an oldies station!!! Love your list…
Grew up with Herb Albert albums playing in our house. My dad was a huge fan. Thanks for taking me back.
oh i knew you were a dork 😉
great list of songs!
Love your list of music and I love most everything on there. I can remember playing Downtown back-to-back-to-back-to-back until my Dad screamed at me to turn it off. heeheheeeee Love your list, it rocks!!!!
