Musical Encounters

I am now accepting applications and submissions for my music library. I feel like I used to be really good at finding new tunes and adding them to my life's soundtrack, but lately I feel out of touch.

This may be wishful thinking, but I feel as though fall is just around the corner and it's my favorite time of year to discover new tunage. There's just something about the cool breezes and fall leaves that demand a repertoire of perfect songs to fit any and all possible moods and thoughts. During the autumn months, more so than any other time, my thoughts and journal writings are generally always accompanied by a stellar song lyric or moving melody. I don't want to have a short supply this year.

So, I welcome your thoughts and suggestions (assuming someone actually reads this). I am pretty eclectic and would love a wide range of genres - however, punk rockers, country bumpkins and metal heads need not apply.

My headphones and car stereo thank you.


  1. I think you should start listening to Rosi Golan. I like her loads. So does Emily L.
    Kind of weepy, but mostly lovely.
    I've been missing the midwest lately. Sometimes I close my eyes and all I see is the 'top of the world,' and us running down that green slope in the middle of spring, just laughing and laughing. And honestly--I don't think I'll ever find that kind of happiness again. So purely wonderful. Maybe I'm being hyperbolic...but I think not. Anyway--that's my way of saying, I miss you, my dear friend. And I like your blog.

  2. Well, my teen would recommend the latest by MAXWELL ... (actually her mother would, too).

    It's a bit dated (and, I guess, a little Country) ... but the Grammy Award winning "Raising Sand" by Robert Plant & Alison Krauss is nice.

    DMB's latest? Sure.

    But I'm just an old guy ...
