Ambrosia and Other Strange Obsessions

Hi, my name is Karen and I'm addicted to classic easy listening music.

Yes, I have a serious problem. Lately I have been waxing nostalgic over classic tunes that make me feel like a kid again.

The first serious sign of trouble was my quest to find anything by Ambrosia. I have to admit, I didn't even know who sang the song I was thinking of - "You're the Only Woman." I personally thought the Little River Band sang it (they are my next quest by the way). I punched in the title of the song and came up with a fantastic list of Ambrosia songs on iTunes. I could've gone crazy, but I only bought three. And listen to them over and over again.

Also a big Supertramp fan (friend of mine in junior high called them Wonderslut - get it? Always thought that was funny). Have their greatest hits CD. Mmm, hmm, nothing better than listening to "The Long Way Home."

Early Billy Joel. For whatever reason, "Big Shot" is like my favorite song right now. What, I was like 9 when that song came out or something? I don't know, but it's good stuff. Before he started singing all that doo-wop crap.

The Eagles are always good, and I've been listening to the slower stuff - two great ones are "I Can't Tell You Why," and "New Kid in Town." Easy listening baby, easy listening!

But then I'll bust out some old Aaliyah, Missy Elliott, Depeche Mode and some trance song I found on someone's myspace that I listen to over and over again. I've been enjoying a real mixed bag to say the least.

I know Julie just blogged about her music tastes, and she had quite the varied list too. Anybody else want to share their music choices?
