Soundtrack round-up

If you lived nearby, you would have seen a sage green Sienna van moving in and out and around town over and over the last twenty-four hours. I am sure there is a medical facility in the county that we have not visited, it just doesn't feel like it. No fear -- nothing serious. Just a bit of lab work needed, a couple of appointments for Gram, a few brackets needed on the braces, and a follow-up for the cough that wouldn't end in the eldest child. It all adds up pretty quickly. So, what's a woman to do but listen to music here, there and everywhere. In the spirit of "variety is the spice of life", here's what's been playing on our CD player:

Bruce Springsteen Greatest Hits

Driving all over town makes me feel old. Bruce makes me feel young. Played at high volume, it fits the bill...perfectly.

Paganini: Violin Concerto No. 1; Spohr: Violin Concerto No. 8 with Hilary Hahn

A new addition to our music. Beautiful. Calming. Inspiring.

Linus and Lucy: The Music of Vince Guaraldi by George Winston

The only problem is you can't dance like a Peanuts character when you are driving... but cheery and toe-tapping.

Veggie Rocks

Let's just say this was NOT my selection, but how 'bout Bob and Larry Sing the 70s? This CD includes such favs as Jesus is Just Alright, Proud Mary, We are Family and The Lion Sleeps Tonight. No need for a lyric sheet for that CD. Those words are taking up valuable gray matter and can be pulled out of the archives at a moment's notice, even during the brain-weak month of May.

For the evening, you can find me slumped on the couch, margarita in hand, watching Eragon. There's a guy on the other couch with a 101+ fever, and this movie choice is in his honor. I hope it is better than it looks, but anything is better than getting behind the wheel again.
