It is no secret that I am a huge music fan. In fact, one of my most popular posts is called Music Galore. As this was written in 2008 I thought the subject was worthy another entry. While my favorite music groups has not changed since that entry, I have been introduced to some new artists and sampled some great albums.
1. Let me start off with my current favorite album. It is by one of my top ten artists- Michael Buble. His album Crazy Love is appropriately titled because I am crazy in love with it. Particularly all of the bubbly, happy songs like this one.
2. I love Ingrid Michaelson and Regina Spektor but I’ve recently posted about both of them. Another recent cd that I love is Norah Jones new album The Fall. She has continued with her streak of smooth, cool songs that are great for everything from work to car trips. This is my favorite of the new songs.
3. I can’t do an entry on new music without mentioning the glory of Glee. I am in serious withdrawals waiting until April for my next fix! I’ve got the entire season on my DVR and I intend on keeping it there until April. I just love it! Glee combines my love of music, theater and even television. The only thing I didn’t like from this season was the fake pregnancy storyline. It seemed too far-fetched for anyone to believe. Some of the plot is contrived and obvious but the music and cast chemistry make up for any problems. I hope in the upcoming season they give a song to the deliciously evil Coach Sue Silvester (hilarious!). I think Poor Unfortunate Souls or perhaps Before He Cheats would be funny.
4. Finally, I’d like to promote a new artist that I am enjoying who is local to Utah- Benton Paul. Last year I saw him with David Archuleta and I loved his performance. He has just put out his second album and both the vocals and song-writing are strong. Recently he has been featured on a few tv shows and one of his songs was covered by Joe Jonas. Aside from his weird name, he is quite the talent!
That’s all I can think of at the moment. I will update again soon. Enjoy the music.
