What's in heavy rotation on your iPod these days?

I'm loving Pink's "U + Ur Hand," Nelly Furtado's "Say it Right," Omarion's "Ice Box" and Fall Out Boy's "This Ain't A Scene, It's an Arms Race." Mims, not so much.

I’m addicted to Irreplaceable by Beyonce. I play it all the time on my little Belkin FM Transmitter, and the kids beg to hear it over and over. It’s such a great song.

Amy Winehouse's 'You Know I'm No Good' is on my download list. What a cool song with an old-school vibe. Has anyone listened to the rest of the cd "Back to Black"?

Can't get enough of Mika's Grace Kelly. It could be my official song of summer. We'll see.

I too first heard them on the Current. As far as I’m concerned, the whole (self titled) cd is great. I might be getting their other album (Moon Over the Freeway) sometime soon too.

webMonkey, nice to see that you’ve got the Ditty Bops on your list. I hear them occasionally on the Current, and I saw them open for Nickel Creek last year. They’ve got a fun sound :) I haven’t heard that song though, I’ll have to check it out.

Reveille is highest ranking

Reveille is highest ranking member of the Corps of Cadets. She rocks. And she likes football, so we bury her so that she can see the scoreboard.
Little bit of trivia… Reveille VI barked so hard at a football game when she was a puppy that she developed epilepsy. Poor dog.
My most favorite words to hear when I am in College Station are:
“Now entering from the North end of Kyle Field…. The world famous Fightin’ Texas Aggie Band!”
I miss College Station. :(

Well, burying their mascot in the football field after he passes, so that he’s facing the scoreboard to see the score…that’s a little odd. I guess it’s kind of cute too…
Another weird one is that if the mascot comes into a classroom and barks, class is immediately dismissed. I guess that one is pretty awesome though!
My husband’s going to grad school here, so that’s why we’re here :)

I'm going to Los Angeles

I’m going to Los Angeles this coming weekend, so I made a “Hollywood mix” for my iPod. On it:
“Los Angeles” by Frank Black
“Santa Monica” by Everclear
“Coming into Los Angeles” by Arlo Guthrie
“Screenwriter’s Blues” by Soul Coughing
“California” by Phantom Planet
“Hollywood” by Madonna
“I Remember California” by REM
“Los Angeles I’m Yours” by the Decemberists
I love how Frank Black pronounces it “Loss Angle-is” and Arlo Guthrie and the Decemberists pronounce it “Loss Angel-eeeees”.
I know I’m missing some other good LA/Hollywood/California-related songs – anyone have any more recommendations?

What do you mean weird? They’re awesome! But the best tradition is now gone – Bonfire. That was something.
By the way, what on earth are you doing in College Station? Waiting for the world famous Texas Aggies to win the NCAA basketball championship?? ;)

I went to SXSW when I was in college. I was on the committee at A&M that brought the concerts, so I was an actual registered attendee to the conference (I SAW HUEY LEWIS IN PERSON!), and I also got a wristband for all the concerts. And Texas A&M paid for it! Of course, I was only 20, so many of the venues wouldn’t let me in the door! Ah, to be young again!

TXAggie – not music related, but I’m in your old stomping ground down here in College Station, TX :) They’ve got some very weird traditions down here!
And on a music related note, I’m only 2 hours from SXSW! Would LOVE to be there, but sadly, cannot be. Been listening to the Current online though, since they’ve been broadcasting live from there. woo hoo! Maybe I can make Austin City Limits instead….

You’re talking to an old Texas gal, here, Mark! OF COURSE I can name more. Here are some of my favorites:
Buddy Holly
Bob Wills
Jesse Dayton
Steve Earle
Nanci Griffith
Roy Orbison
Stevie Ray Vaughn
Pat Green
Davin James
Trish Murphy
George Jones
and last. but certainly not least…
The incomparable, the one, the only, the red-headed stranger… Willie Nelson
Some of my favorite Robert Earl albums are his earlier pieces – West Textures is an amazing storytelling album: the song “Mariano” is a masterpiece and “Copenhagen” is hysterical.
When I was in college, I used to get to hear REK every two or three months. And when I lived in Houston, I saw him at least twice a year. Now that I am up in Minnesota, I have only been able to see him once – last April when I was 9 months pregnant with my 4th child. I was quite a sight – whooping it up with all the other Aggies while trying not to topple over.
I’m so excited that someone else out there even knows who REK is!

The list of great musicians from Texas is amazing, from Bob Wills and his Texas Playboys, down through Buddy Holly, Willie Nelson, Stevie Ray Vaughn and one of my newer favorites, Los Lonely Boys.
Henry Garza and his two brothers are killer musicians with great vocals, and amazing showmen to boot. “Heaven” from their self-titled debut album would be a good addition to any iPod.

Hellogoodbye's Here (In Your Arms) also caught my ear of late. "Zombies! Aliens! Vampires! Dragons!" is a pretty fun album. Could be a good one for summer cruising.

"Gringo Honeymoon," by Robert Earl Keen, is a great album. "Merry Christmas from The Family," is a disfunctional holiday classic.

Townes Van Zandt is another terrific Texas musician. There are a lot of hard-hitting singer-songwriters out of Texas. Can you name any more?

I only have the original Mermaid Avenue album. I like the “Don’t Try This at Home” album more, though.
What about Robert Earl Keen? Any of you folks ever listen to him? He’s a good ol’ Texas Aggie (WHOOP!!), and was a roommate of Lyle Lovett in college. I have all his albums and cry if I have to wait too long for a new release.

Thank goodness for The Current for sure. They have been a godsend to radio here in the Twin Cities. I knew Regina Spektor was starting to gain some attention when my 18-year-old cousin from International Falls said she liked her. They do not get a variety of music up there so that was a very good sign.
