Diana Ross sings "I'm Coming Out" (as far as I know...maybe Donna did a version too?)

Speaking of Donna I've been obsessed with her lately for no good reason and recently added these songs to my i-pod:

17 minute versions of -
Love to Love You Baby
Try Me (I Know We Can Make It)
MacArthur Park Suite

and extended versions of -
With Your Love
Walk Away
I Feel Love

...and to keep me in touch with the 21st century -
Radiohead (every song on "In Rainbows")
"Crimewave" by Crystal Castles
"Beatific" by Glass Candy
"Paper Planes" by MIA

Like Bil, this is very much a result of the random play.

1. "Falling Slowly" from Once
2. "Iron Man" Black Sabbath
3. "Accidental Babies" Damien Rice
4. "New York I Love You, But You're Bringing Me Down" LCD Soundsystem
5. "Just Go" from A New Brain
6. "Tonight" Lykke Li
7. "Praise 4 Minutes" Madonna vs. Fatboy Slim mashup
8. "You! Me! Dancing!" Los Campesinos
9. "Beat it" Fall Out Boy (ft. John Mayer)
10. "Two Ladies" from Cabaret (Alan Cummings version)

I like that LCD song, jere...

'I'm Coming Out' is by Diana Ross

My iPod has a lot of Beethoven on it, some Gershwin, Carmena Burana plus several other medieval chants, including Gregorian, Indian, and Tibetan, several complete Streisand albums, complete soundtracks from several Broadway musicals (Miss Saigon is one of my favs --- gotta get Rent, Serena), Stravinski's Rite of Spring, eight different recordings of Ave Maria, and maybe a few things the readers here might actually recognize:

Prayer for the Dying by Seal
Beautiful by Cristina Aquilera (luv dat video!)
Vogue by Madonna (Great minds think alike, Serena!)
Get Dancin' by Disco Tex and the Sexolettes (really shows my age, huh?)
I'm So Excited by the Pointer Sisters
I Am What I Am by Gloria Gaynor (of course!)
What's Goin' On; Mercy, Mercy Me; Inner City Blues; Sexual Healing all by Marvin Gaye
Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd (yea, I'm a boomer ...)
Just the Two of Us by Bill Withers (try finding that one to download ... iTunes doesn't have it!)

As you can tell, I'm not big on the latest music ...
