I'm it...and a little bit more!
...so Cindy tagged me to do a music meme. Now that the 'rents have headed northward I can do it. :o)

The instructions are: List seven songs you are into right now, no matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they're not any good, but they must be songs you're really enjoying now. Post these instructions in your LiveJournal along with your seven songs. Then tag seven other people to see what they're listening to.

Okay, here goes (I won't be doing the cool video stuff some people did because I don't think all my songs are YouTube-able) in no particular order:

1. Girlfriend - Avril Lavigne It's just too bouncy, isn't it? :-D
2. No Sleep Tonight - the Faders It isn't everywhere like it was a little while back but I still enjoy it.
3. Candyman - Christina Aguilera I enjoy the swing vibe it has going and doubt that it will ever be a hit on mainstream radio. LOL
4. Hard Times Come Again No More - Yo-Yo Ma, Edgar Meyer & Mark O'Connor w/ James Taylor The whole Appalachian Journey CD is fabulous but this song is the one I find myself humming.
5. Devoted to You - Linda Ronstadt Did you know she has a lullaby CD?? With soothing treatments of rock hits, no less. It's very enjoyable, says me. :o)
6. 455 Rocket - Kathy Mattea I'm so not a country fan but I do make an occasional exception and this is one of them. The bluesy vibe and lyrics are fun.
7. Us Amazonians - Kirsty MacColl Any song with the lines: "I punched him out and brought him to this hut; but I know he'll thank me when he wakes up" has to be a winner! LOL

Well, there you have it peeps! Am I tagging anyone?? Nope. But if anyone wants to do it, go for it!

Now, for the little bit more portion of today's blog:

I mentioned earlier that I had some new to me authors to recommend so here goes:
Cindy Miles is new to me (and everyone else I think since her first book just came out in May). She's writing paranormal/time travel stuff. It has a very Lynn Kurland vibe and I love me some Lynn K so I liked it. The debut book is Spirited Away and is similar, in some ways, to Lynn K's Stardust of Yesterday (probably my very favorite book EVAR) so I liked it. I'll pick up her next book when it comes out in the Fall and see if I continue to like her stuff. Not a lot of steam in the first one, FYI.

Another new-to-me author I tried recently is Kelley St. John. I read a Harlequin Blaze called Kiss and Dwell (the first in a trilogy, btw) and liked it enough to be on the lookout for the rest of the series. Again paranormal (I was on quite the paranormal spurt there for a while) but this time with steam. ;-) I may check out one of her single titles, too...even though the Mountain is groaning already and threatening to avalanche all over my house. LOL

Well, that's it for me today, peeps! I'll be around more now that my company is gone and the scrapbooking is finished.

I know two of the songs on your list so I will definitely see if I can track them down and have a listen.

I need to do this meme since Holly tagged me and I keep forgetting. KIK.

Cindy, maybe you'll find some new faves! Or maybe you'll end up thinking, "Wow, how boring is she?? Her taste blows!" LOL

Mailyn, do it! Do it now!! I know your choices will be ever so interesting - and international, even! :-D
