In Case You Were Wondering.....

I have been on a CD buying spree lately. Over the last couple of months I have made a whopping 4 CD purchases, very unusual for me. Anyway, if you are interested in checking out something a little different, this is what I have purchased (these links take you to Amazon where you can listen to samples, if you are so inclined):

Imogen Heap, Speak for Yourself
This can get a little pop-py, but 'Goodnight and Go' and 'Hide and Seek' are good tracks. Not my best purchase, and I will confess to some buyer's remorse, but it's mine now, so I'll make the best of it.

Mexico and Mariachis
This is the soundtrack to all three of Robert Rodriguez's Mexico trilogy. Wonderful music, no buyer's remorse at all with this one. If you feel up to it, listen to the sample of 'Malaguena Salerosa' - it rocks. Most of these tracks are quite enjoyable.

Etta James, The Definitive Collection
The queen of blues, a voice like silk. 'W-O-M-A-N' is great, a classic sing along at the top of your lungs while dancing and driving song. Really, the whole CD is quite good. Again, no buyer's remorse.

Prince, 3121
Do I need to say anything? Prince, in all his short, oversexed glory. 'Satisfied' is among my favorite tracks of this CD.

And now, for music that I do not own yet but plan to purchase at my earliest convenience:

Hoodwinked the Movie Soundtrack
There's unfortunately no way to listen to this, and I have discovered that it is virtually impossible to find this here in town, and still quite difficult on the internet. Cute movie, I would recommend it. Well, interesting movie.

Damien Rice, O
This is melancholy, acoustic, plantive music, good for when you're feeling a little down and need to wax dramatic.

That's it, my recent music purchases and my musical desires. I don't think there's any defining (or accounting for) my musical tastes, but I thought I would share. I have learned, thanks to a good friend of mine, that you never know what you might like or even obsessively love, so if you have time check it out.
