A Little Music Appreciation

Adele – Rolling in the Deep
I love her big, bold voice; it sort of grabs you by the collar and demands that you pay attention. In a good way. She brings to mind some great female singers like Nina Simone and Peggy Lee, while being modern and cool.
Patricia Ahn – Dream
At the other end of the spectrum is this delicate song. It’s just flat out pretty.
The Ahn Trio
When I was looking for the Patricia Ahn video I ran across these Ahns. What an amazing trio of sisters.
Ke$ha – Take It Off
Ok, I’m slightly embarrassed that I like this song so much! The thing is, I first heard it when I was reading Last Night in Montreal and it so perfectly fits the Montreal club scenes–gritty & grimy with glitter.
Cee Lo Green – Forget You
One word: Summer–top off, windows down, radio blasting Summer. Enough said. (Sorry Australia.)
