Let me recap some more of the musical highlights to this year.
I saw more concerts this year than ever before.
I saw Stevie Nicks and Don Henley in June. It was a wonderful show and gave me a new love and appreciation for Stevie. She's truly a talented lady who loves her fans.
3 Moody Blues shows this year and they were all a wild ride.
Especially that show in OH in October
And the best concert was by far Elvis Costello in July.
~ Musical Discoveries
Grey Eye Glances - It started with a recommendation of one song. They are now one of my favorite bands.
Cliff Richard - I blame Mistletoe and Wine. Cliff is more a rediscovery for me though, because I had heard his duets with Olivia Newton John and Sarah Brightman before. I just never really listened to any more until now.
Bridin Brennan - This is a recent discovery of mine. Seriously, I just heard her album 2 days ago. She has a beautiful voice and I hope to find the money to buy her album soon. I was gifted with some mp3s of hers the other day.
~ Songs from 2005
Paul McCartney - Fine Line
Danny Elfman - Wonka's Welcome Song (Tell me this gem didn't get stuck in your head!)
Rob Thomas - Lonely No More (I couldn't get this out of my head for months!)
The Wallflowers - The Beautiful Side Of Somewhere
Diana Krall - Count Your Blessings Instead Of Sheep (Yeah, I love this song! It makes every favorite list of mine this year!)
Andy Bell - Crazy
Jamie Cullum - Get Your Way
Burt Bacharach w/Elvis Costello - Who Are These People
~ Musical Disappointments
Not getting to see Duran Duran in Pittsburgh because of schedule conflicts.
Talking Out Of Turn getting the axe from the Moodies sad pathetic (but I still love em) setlist, in favor of a song that no one but John seems to know all the words to.
Just sing some word ending in -tion and it's all good, right?
Depeche Mode - Playing The Angel and Madonna - Confessions on a Dancefloor.
2 albums that I couldn't bring myself to buy after hearing the first single. Both are from artists that I love.
Justin Hayward's new tunic. Yeah I know wardrobe doesn't affect the music, but when you have to look at the man in that horrid thing for a few hours it affects your enjoyment of the show.
Justin, hire someone to shop for ya, cos your taste in shirts is lacking!!
David Bowie and Queen's Under Pressure getting used in jewlery commerical.
