And searching YouTube for some of her favorite musicians. At least, the ones that stuck in my memory. *wry smile*
For your enjoyment:
Blossom Dearie —
"Don't Wait Too Long"
Bob Dorough —
"But For Now"
Thelonious Monk —
"'Round Midnight"The Bobs
Sadly, the only Bobs tracks I could find were from well into the 21st century, so (to my ear) the lineup is all
wrong. That's supposed to be Gunnar Bob
on lead vocals, dammit! *sulks*
Marshall Hain [ZOMG YouTube has Marshall Hain? Cool!]
"Dancin' In The City"
Michael Franks —
"Your Secret's Safe With Me"
Dire Straits —
"Romeo and Juliet"
The Beatles —
the first few tracks from Sgt. Pepper
When I went off to college, among the things I packed were all the Beatles albums. About a week after I'd been gone, the phone in our room rang. I answered, to hear my mother say, "You little bitch, bring back my Beatles albums! I mean, hello, I love you, bring back my Beatles albums!"
And then shading into some of the musicians I introduced her to...
Kirsty MacColl —
"In These Shoes?"
The Jazz Butcher
"Southern Mark Smith"
Tobacco is evil. So why does smoking look so damn sexy sometimes? I sooo wanted this picture painted on the back of my black leather jacket, but didn't know any artists I felt I could ask to do it:
And closing with a last Jazz Butcher track, because I was seriously in love with him during my late teens, so she listened to a lot of his music... and because this song makes me cry almost every time I hear it.
The Jazz Butcher — "Angels"
