Yeah, haha- oops. Totally forgot to post a play list this week! In the spirit of consistency, here it is, just a few days late.
This playlist is actually going to be a bit different. While everyone is enjoying music via Spotify these days, I still prefer Pandora. I chose my favorite station, and decided to share some of my “Thumbs upped” songs. The playlist? Ella Fitzgerald.
I was turned onto Ella a few years ago, and have been grateful ever since. Making this station opened me up to songs and artists that I never listened to before, such as Ruth Brown, Big Mama Thornton, Dusty Springfield, Lavern Baker, Nina Simone, Mable John, just to name a few.
This is my go to Pandora station when I don’t really feeling like listening to anything else, or when I need to relax. Its one of the best things to do when I’m stressed or upset; just put on this station and let it play for a bit.
So here are some of my favorites.
Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong- Dream a little Dream (For the record, I love EVERYTHING these two collaborate on).
Dusty Springfield- Son of a Preacher Man
Slim Harpo- Rock Me Baby
Dorothy Dandridge- Somebody
Billie Holiday- What a Little Moonlight Can Do
Little Ester- Cherry Wine
Ruth Brown- Be Good to Me Tonight
Nat King Cole- When I Fall in Love
Bo Diddley- You Can’t Judge a Book by Its Cover
Big Mama Thornton- Ball and Chain
Nina Simone- Feeling Good
Louis Jordan- Is you Is or Is you Ain’t my Baby
Aretha Franklin- Ain’t No Way
Have a great week! As always, thanks for stoppin by!
