In Praise of Alanis

 
I have been a fan of Alanis Morissette for a long time, but debated about buying this new album.  I didn’t really want more of the same.  Then I listened to the samples on iTunes.  Then I listen to them again and again.  For a few minutes I thought I needed the actual cd, but couldn’t wait and bought it at iTunes. 

I listen to the album that night while sewing and since last Tuesday, I have listened to this cd dozens of times.  I have a few favorites, but I like the entire album.  If you buy it, be sure the get the deluxe version.  There are 5 bonus tracks on it.  I just lucked out, it was the only thing available on iTunes.   By the way, my favorite, favorite song is Incomplete.  Just lovely.

Anyway, the album makes me want to go to running, instead tonight I have been listening to it while making a chocolate cake for Father’s Day.  Oh well, I’ll get back to the gym on Monday.

By the way, I once saw Alanis heading out for a day of kayaking out of Whittier, Alaska.  We were getting our gear and I said “hi” and gave my usual shy smile.  Listening to this album makes me wish I had told her how much I have enjoyed her music.

What are you listening to right now?  Leave a comment or suggestion for me!  I love new music, especially music that makes me want to exercise (or better, dance).  :)
