iPod on Shuffle, First 10 Songs

1)  I Want It All ~ Queen

Queen is sort of the soundtrack of the summer show season.  My trainer and I both love Queen so we will always listen to it in the truck on the way to and from shows.

2) In My Pocket ~ Mandy Moore

Love this dance song.  Matt and I always would have to hit the dance floor at Pegasus when it would come on.

3) Cell Block Tango ~ Chicago Soundtrack

Love, love, love musicals.  This is from the movie version of the show and I adored Renee Zelwiger and Catherine Zeta-Jones in it.  And this song is great.

4) Leaves and Kings ~ Josh Ritter

I was introduced to Josh Ritter by a friends parents a couple of years ago.  I first saw him live in Toronto and he was amazing.  Great folk music, and his concerts are great.  He mostly plays small clubs and things like that, so it's a great, intimate setting.  He really interacts with the audience.

5) All I Ask of You ~ Phantom of the Opera Soundtrack

This is absolutely my favorite musical of all time.  I love the story, I love the music, I love everything about this show.  I've seen it like 5 times and I will happily see it another 5 times.

6) I'm Still A Guy ~ Brad Paisley

Yeah, I'm a regular old farm girl, I love country music.  And I love Brad Paisley, not only can he sing, but he's totally hot as well.  Love this song, I just think it's so cute, and really true too.  We're always asking guys to hold our purses and things like that.

7) To Sir With Love ~ Glee Cast

Oh course I'm a huge Glee fan, I'm a broadway nerd it's only natural.  I loved this song, and in the episode I was crying as the kids sang it to Mr. Shue.

8) Cigarette Song ~ The Clarks

The Clarks are a local Pittsburgh band that's been around for as long as I've been alive.  They have great sound and it doesn't hurt that the lead singer is gorgeous.  Cigarette is one of their best known songs and it's got a great line in it about the Fayette County Fair.  They have always remained true to their roots.

9) Toxic ~ Britney Spears

Yes, I'm a huge Brit Brit fan.  What can I say, she's great.  I know, I know she's made some horrible choices in her personal life but she's got great music.  There's nothing better to get ready to go clubbing that bopping around to Britney.  And when Glee did it's Britney episode it was the best thing for me!

10) Whiskey in the Jar ~ Seamus Kennedy

My Uncle Ralph introduced me to Seamus Kennedy a couple of years ago.  He took me to see him play at Kelly's by the Riverside.  Seamus is an Irish folk singer who does a great show.  He's entertaining and really gets the crowd going with his music.  When my aunt and uncle went to Ireland several years ago, the tour was arranged with Seamus.  And every night they went to a local pub and Seamus would sing.  They both had a great time and I wish I had the money to go on one of his tours.
