...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?
