Favorites? 

For making love? Long drives? Dancing the night away?

Just to kick things off, I like Django Reinhardt for a glass of wine, Stevie Wonder's "Superstitious" with my morning coffee, and Townes Van Zandt for whiskey on the porch.

Been listening to a lot of Pandora (internet radio) lately and really just want a place to share some of the new songs and musicians I run into!

I have been told I have the worst taste in music ever so I probably should not be answering this.

Avenged Sevenfold is one of my favorite bands, so if you like hard rock, I'd encourage you to check them out, though their last (self-titled) album had a VARIETY of styles, from a country love ballad to an 8 minute Danny Elfman-esque masterpiece of story telling. But the album I discovered them through and fell in love with is CITY OF EVIL, and all the songs there are longer and have a very Guns 'n Roses/Metallica kind of vibe :) You may know the songs "Bat Country" or "Beast and the Harlot" because they were popular on MTV for a few seconds :p

Lately I find myself wanting to listen to a lot of songs with great beats that make me want to dance (which is ironic because I am the world's most uncoordinated person and can't dance):

CarryOut by Timbaland & Justin Timberlake: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NRdHsuuXxfk

Break Your Heart by Taio Cruz featuring Ludacris: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y_SI2EDM6Lo

Nothin' On You by B.o.B. featuring Bruno Mars: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8PTDv_szmL0

I also run into a lot of songs on the shows I watch that I end up falling in love with. This week, it was off an episode of Cougar Town:

Something Beautiful by NeedToBreathe: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ueP05bkWVvQ

Strangely, I also am obsessed with music that sounds like it's from the 30s and 40s? I'm not even sure if that's accurate, time wise. I just know that if it sounds like it should be playing at the Tower of Terror? I am gonna love it. Perfect example?

If I Didn't Care by the Ink Spots: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XgszyQH9VWE

Heard the song on an HBO Movie called Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day and fell in love instantly. If you can find that version, sung by Amy Adams & Lee Pace, you should definitely check it out. So heartbreakingly lovely :)

I also have Ella Fitzgerald, Marc Anthony (favorite Spanish language artist), Tom Petty, and ZO2 on my iPod. I'm just all over the place.

I love all genres of music and so many songs 'do it' for me; some of my top turn on songs are "Can't Do a Thing to Stop Me" by Chris Isaak, "Hungey Like the Wolf" by Duran Duran, "Scandalous" by Mis-Teeq, "You're Makin Me High" by Toni Braxton, "A Little Bit More" by Liberty X, anything by Jill Scott, "Need You Tonight" by INXS, Baliamos by Enrique Iglesias, and "Strip" by Adam Ant.  I also have a guilty pleasure weakness for After the Lovin by Engelbert Humperdink.:)

I had no idea where to put this so here it goes:

I just saw a Chanel No. 5 commercial that reminds me of Cole cuz the song is the same one from his site:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p-ngh-9eeMo

I have some Billie Holiday on my iPod so now it makes more sense to me why I enjoy the little clips I hear when that commercial comes on or when I visited Cole's site a couple of times just to hear it :p

Thanks for visiting the site Painted Lady. I was actually hoping visitors, like you, would have watched the Chanel commercial before visiting my site so they could understand its meaning better.

I wanted to project an anytime, anywhere attitude towards my companionship, a sense of no international borders are a barrier for a rendezvous to happen. Wether its on the sun drenched beaches of Florida, in the historic architecture of continental Europe or walking through the wafting street cooking smells of Asian cities, the spirit of adventure is evident in the theme song I choose. A secret rendezvous the waiting and wanting in a new undiscovered city somewhere in the world.

And of course, any woman being a 'fool' to want a guy like me  ;).

the waiting and wanting in a new undiscovered city somewhere in the world.

Well said Cole, that song (and the ad) really does capture the old world feel, the sense of mystery that travel can have at its best.  It really is amazing how powerful a single song can be in evoking a place or a time or a feeling...

Taken somewhat at random from my favorite songs on Pandora:

That timeless, haunting, beautiful sound that sends a chill down your spine every times you hear it... Buena Vista Social Club, "Chan Chan":
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6JEdf7XsV5g


Thomas Crown Affair, Nina Simone's "Sinnerman":
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H6_BWNzThJY


Off the beaten track, but interesting and classic sounding, Wax Tailor, "Que Sera":
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WEi9ZQrEjr8


Upbeat and playful, not as well known as the theme to Mad Men, but still awesome and evocative, "Ghostwriter" by RJD2:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uKJeLG8-M5I


Dick Dale and the Del Tones, "Misirlou"... made famous in Pulp Fiction, but still so much fun.  Surf guitar just rocks.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZIU0RMV_II8


Sad, mournful, bittersweet. Gary Jules, "Mad World":
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4N3N1MlvVc4



Hearkening back to an an older age of adventure... I always wished I lived in the Age of Sail. Luigi Boccherini from Master and Commander (which are also amazing books by the way):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aPDyuulIZ1Y&feature=related


Paper Planes by M.I.A.... maybe a little cliche after Slumdog Millionaire, but still brilliant, and has that international, who knows where this life will lead us feel:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=__HQGvSqZ5I


But for pure Southern gothic, you can't beat Jace Evertt's "Bad Things", the theme to True Blood: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vxINMuOgAu8

I also love the new Hugo ad featuring Jonathan Rhys Meyers; aside from being a fan of both Hugo Boss and Jonathan Rhys Meyers, I love how the music and imagery blend together perfectly and when he leans in to kiss her neck (tremble...)

I'm in an extremely magenta/angsty mood tonight and I've been humming this song without even realizing it:

"What'll I Do" (this version sung by Nat King Cole)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qXVWwJaF6pc

Although I must admit to how I originally found this song...via one of the greatest TV shows ever: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wxJsl4e0Xmg :) I love her voice. As someone commented on the video "a weary, raspy voice is perfect for the sad & wistful lyrics."

I get in the weirdest moods.

This tune accompanied me on the way back on my last leg of my recent trip abroad. The plane was chasing the morning dawn to the west and hiding from the midnight darkness of the east, the air was a strange hue of crimson blue and blood furnace red - it was if I was caught between two unfolding twilight worlds. The sultry Norah Jone's 'I wouldn't need you' was drifting through my ears. The first few lines 'If I touched myself the way you touched me. If I could hold myself the way you held me.Then I wouldn't need you'. A gentle mesmerizing reminder of Patrons won, lost and waiting to be discovered.

(Yes I had a bit to drink as well....)

Your description of the song has me sold before I've heard a single note. But I do have some Norah on my iPod and enjoy her voice, though I find I have to be in a particular mood to listen to her. I'm looking forward to checking this song out, though, later on today :)

Recently I discovered the Jefferson Starship classic Runaway--such a beautiful song and one that lulls me to sleep at night; it reminds me of all those who bring love and tenderness to my life.

Classics like Tom T. Hall's "Watermelon Wine" or the r&b and country versions of "Drift Away"=instant mood relief
