From time to time I am going to do a Music Monday. The idea and "logo" comes from Steven @ No excuse, No Explanation and being a big music fan I thought I would share some of my favorite music once in awhile.
If anyone looked at my ipod playlist they would notice something glaringly missing. Woman singers. I have some Amy Winehouse and a Duffy cd. I enjoy them but more often than not I skip them, it all depends on my mood.
One I have recently rediscovered is Dana Owens. You may know her better as Queen Latifa. I know nothing of her rap library but I do have The Dana Owens Album. I had seen her on some talk show and couldn't believe how beautiful she sang. The album consists of covers with a "standards" sound. She has a big voice and pulls them off very well.
The playlist consists of
Baby Get Lost
Close Your Eyes
I Put a Spell on You
If I Had You
Mercy, Mercy, Mercy
I didn't recognize any strictly by the title but once she sang them it was an "oh yeah" each time. Even the songs I didn't know, I liked. I also have a couple of her songs from the soundtrack Hairspray
Tomorrow Justifiable Homicide Tuesday my surprise you. My subject that is.
