It's been ages since I've written about any new music. I don't even remember if I told you about Robbie's latest CD, Take the Crown. It's classic Robbie. You need it in your collection, I promise. I've been stuck lately on his greatest hits, In & Out of Consciousness, because I'm obsessed, so you should go buy that right now too. I'll wait. So I'm totally out of the loop on new music on the radio, new albums by any of my favorites. Nothing... just Robbie.
It did make me tear up one night when I was jamming in the car with Bimmer and "Sin, sin, sin" came on and she started singing along going "la la la." Most. Precious. Thing. Ever.
Such a proud mama!
While Robbie is obviously my preferred choice these days, driving back from Columbia on my own recently (after a much needed girl's shopping day with Kimhead) I was about to fall asleep. So I rummaged through my center console in the car and found something I thought would keep me awake.... Amaryllis by Shinedown.
I had almost forgotten how much I love me some Shinedown. Of all the new rock music out there, this guy can sing. Honest to goodness. Like, if you took away the music and just heard his voice, it would be pure heaven.
I know I've pimped this song before, but "Call Me" on the "Sound of Madness" album is my all-time favorite. Probably one of my favorite rock ballads of all time. And that's saying something.... more than Journey or Bon Jovi. It just hits you in the gut. And I just want to sing along at the top of my lungs with every ounce of passion I can muster.
Happy singing! Here's hoping there is some new music in my future after the holidays!
