My Compilation

If you begin counting with me from May 26th, tomorrow's trip to Abilene will be the 7th since the summer began. It has been loads of fun because we have been doing graduation stuff, wedding stuff and my sister-in-law and I have laughed till we cried. I can not even begin to tell the stories, you just had to be there.

But people, I am sick of my CD's. I know, it is 2007 and I am not an mp3, Ipod using girl. I just don't like the little thingy's in my ears and it seems kinda' ridiculous to hook it all up to play through the CD player when I could just play the CD's and not have to spend the money on an Ipod. I will get there eventually. All that to say, I can barely face putting in my usual favorites. I listen to almost all Contemporary Christian music because it is such a powerful way for me to connect with God, but there has been a lack of great new stuff recently and so I am in a little dry spell.

And so I decided to remedy that little situation and download some stuff to burn a new CD to help make the drive a little better tomorrow. David is convinced my choices are to terrorize him in the car for 5 hours, but really they are not. I ventured from my usual suspects and this is just a compilation of some of the favorite (old and new) music. It makes me happy. And, Lord help me, it includes a Country Song.

Beautiful Flower (India.Arie)
There's Hope (India.Arie)
Wait for You (Elliott Yamin)
I'm the Man (Elliott Yamin)
Banana Pancakes (Jack Johnson)
Upside Down (Jack Johnson)
Heaven (Los Lonely Boys)
Somewhere Only We Know (Keane)
Everybody's Changing (Keane)
Umbrella (Rihanna)
Complicated (Robin Thicke)
When the Sun Goes Down (Kenny Chesney)

So, what do you think? If you spot one, even one, you like on this list, let me know. I need some ammunition to throw back at my ever-mocking husband.

I'm proud of your Kenny Chesney choice. But please! Umbrella, ella, ella, ella, ella, ella???

Heather said...

When the Sun Goes Down is my favorite Kenny song. It just makes me want to be on the beach. :)

Arlene Kasselman said...

I think it's the beach vibe that I love too, Heather.
Okay Amy...I did not say this was "going deep with Arlene." I can not explain why the Umbrella, ella, ella, ella hits the spot.

Scott said...

What? No "Vienna Philarmonic Fanfare?" I'm shocked.

Changing the subject--couple of interesting guests at the house yesterday, I'm told. Will take weeks to clean up the damage :-)

Arlene Kasselman said...

I can only imagine the damage, sorry. You would think that their Dad would have taught them better.
I am feeling like I need a "Ferguson" fix. Miss you guys.

Spent some time with the kiddos at church last night. Neat kids, as you well know. They've both grown up so much. We had fun talking about the "choir girl" video. You missed some serious work. Your former prayer group is decorating the church for Ashley & Sean's wedding.

Hi Arlene, I didn't get your info at the wedding. Please email me at timkel89@gmail.com so I can give you info about the Duncan Christmas. Thanks!! Kelly

I absolutely love a lot of Kenny Chesney's music, and it is absolutely the beach vibe. It is "happy music."
One of my favorite bloggers has 12 children and was just writing about them singing the umbrella, ella, ella all the time.
