Well, you all had very good suggestions for good music/entertainment to listen to while knitting. Here is a list of what you all came up with: Single songs: "Love Shack" by the B52's (Tin Roof!! Rusted.) "Layla" by Eric Clapton "Shout to the Lord" "Hey Mama" by the Black Eyed Peas "Explosive" by Bond (and all women string quartet, very cool) "Pagan Poetry" by Bjork "Bizarre Love Triangle" cover by Frente! (Love the original, must check this out) "Combat Baby" by Metric "H" by Tool "Even Cowgirls get the Blues" by EmmyLou Harris (Love her!) "Jive Talkin" by the BeeGee's (I hummed this song the rest of the day after I read this.) "Where the Streets Have No Name" by U2 "Supposed to be" by Jack Johnson "Under African Skies" by Paul Simon (I haven't listened to this in a long time. I forgot how beautiful it is) "Closing Time" by Semisonic "One Love" by Bob Marley "Trip Through Your Wires" by U2 "Come Away with Me" by Norah Jones "Losing my Religion" by REM "Sweater song" by Weezer CD's The Last Samurai Soundtrack Peaceful Praise by Gary Prim Any album by Coldplay (I love them too!) Canyon Trilogy by R. Carlos Nakai (Native American Flute Music, very relaxing!) Memory of Trees by Enya Anything by The Knitters (how cool is that name!) Kathleen Battle sings Mozart Teresa Deng (I am in the process of checking her out right now. I love exploring new music!) Benedictine Monk Chant (Love this for meditiation actually) Anything by Death Cab for Cutie (I've got to check them out. I"m intrigued by the name.) Garden State Soundtrack Shimmering Warm and Bright by Bel Canto Space Flower, the Wild Swans and Deep by Peter Murphy ( I love Peter Murphy) Infinity by Trout Fishing in America Non music selections Cast On podcast with Brenda Dayne (Knit, knit like the wind!) I'd have to include all knitting podcasts actually. Speaking about podcasts, I have to thank all the people who have sent kind words about my interview on Whit's podcast. I had lots of fun and was much relieved that I didn't sound like a dork. Good editing, Whit! I got so many music tips, I'm not going to lack music for my Ipod shuffle! As far as music I enjoy while knitting, I've been listening to podcasts, and the new music by Train. And now for our winner... I used a random number generator and Mary Ann aka "Mom" won the Tropical Handpaint! Congratulations! I will be sending her the winnings this coming week. I hope she enjoys it!
