It's Not Unusual...

...to find me rocking around the house these days to my new "Greatest Hits of Tom Jones" CD. I've always enjoyed his music...heck, I know I'm dating myself, but I used to watch his variety show on TV when I was a kid, and I loved it. But for some reason, I've never gotten around to purchasing any of his albums.

Frankly, I don't know what took me so long! I'm really enjoying this CD. Not only is Tom Jones a terrific, accomplished singer, but also I love the music. It's so sixties...so campy...so much fun! I read in the album liner that Tom Jones was Elvis's favorite singer, and I can believe it. If you want to have a lot of retro fun...or just want to enjoy listening to a terrific singer...check out this CD!

I'm going through a retro period in general. My latest song/CD purchases have been things like "Little Red Riding Hood" by Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs; "Secret Agent Man" by Johnny Rivers; and "Greatest Hits of the Guess Who." Either I'm right in style with the latest fashion, or else I'm going through my second childhood! But in any case, I'm having a lot of fun.

What's YOUR latest CD purchase? Who are your favorite singers/bands and why?

Hey, Liz! Great idea posting your blog addie in your signature - I LOVE the Jack Frost pix! And, my music and movie faves run parallel to yours, so I'm showing my age, too. *eg*

Hugs!

Thanks for posting, Carla! Actually, it was Janet Elaine Smith's idea to put the blog addie in my signature line, and if it's led you to my blog, then it was a good idea!

Isn't that frost picture amazing? I haven't seen anything like that for years. And it's great that you share my musical tastes. I always knew we had a lot in common, you and I. ;-)
