Tune in Tuesdays


This weekly meme is hosted by Ginger at GReads and is meant to showcase another passion: music. Each week you can post an old or new song so that it gains more interest or is discovered by new ears. So let's help Ginger spread our love of music. Oh and don't forget to submit a link to your post over on Ginger’s site by clicking on the banner.



I'm not going to lie.  I'm a little sad that the 90's edition of Tune in Tuesdays is over but, as they say, the show must go on.  I was in an oldies kind of mood today.  Here are some of my favorites that I love to listen to when this mood strikes.  Hope you enjoy!



These Arms of Mine by Otis Redding


Summertime by Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong


That's Life by Frank Sinatra

  12. Great picks Jen! Sorry I'm a day late :) This reminds me, I wanted to download some Sinatra from iTunes.

    This kind of music just makes you slow down, you know? Sit down and close your eyes and just listen. Yeah.

  13. @Neri - Thanks! Aww can I go? I love watching old movies.

    @heavenisabookstore - Not lately but, I've seen it so many times I can practically recite it word for word. I think it's why I'm partial to this type of music. ;-)

    @LitzaLou - Thanks! LOL! Um, I was 10 in 1990 so I don't think you're old at all. =)

    @Jen - Thanks roomie. Better late than never my dear. I know exactly what you mean. That's why I love listening to it.

  15. @Karen - Ella's one of my faves. The combo of her and Louis is amazing!

    I loved it! I can't wait for the next book. I seriously might hurt someone to get my hands on it. ;-)
