Favorite Music

I was going through my old 2016 planner and found a list Pat and I made (on one of our very long drives to California) of our favorite musicians/bands.

Patrick: Boston, Jethro Tull, Beatles, Eagles, Styx, Talking Heads, Juanes, Cheyenne, Shakira, Enrique Iglesias, Piano Guys, Collective Soul, Journey

Karisa: Eagles, Cranberries, Mana, Pablo Herrera, Duran Duran, Toto, Laura Pausini, Simon & Garfunkel, George Strait, Lionel Richie, Kool & the Gang, Gypsy Kings, Various Latin Music artists

I also love international folk music.  I love Cara Dillon's voice for Black is the Color, She Moved through the Fair, and old English songs like Under the Greenwood Tree.

Honorable mentions (in no order):
Toni Braxton
Player, Baby Come Back
Earth, Wind, and Fire
Christina Perri
Chris Isaak, Wicked Games
Moodly Blues, In Your Wildest Dreams and The Voice
Andrea Boccelli
Maroon 5
Justin Timberlake
Selena Gomez
Michael Jackson
Beach Boys
Various 80's music
Jon Bon Jovi
Def Leopard
Mr. Tamborine Man, Bus Stop, Mama's and Papas
Mr. Bojangles
Oldies like: Cherish, Never My Love, Rock around the Clock, Sugar Sugar
Under the Boardwalk, Brown-eyed Girl, Sittin' on the Dock of the Bay,
The voices of Buble and Harry Connick Jr.

This could go on forever, but you have to have a LOT of music for a 20 hour drive!  One way.  And another 20 hours back.  I wish we lived somewhere where it was only one flight home.  Even flying is an all day thing.  Two flights to get to Sacramento :(

I just learned how to play Travelin' Soldier by the Dixie Chicks and sang it for my guitar teacher.  Music makes me happy.  I need singers in my family as well as piano, violin, flute, base, guitar, and drums.  Maybe some horns or wind instruments.  Then we'll be ready.  I don't know for what...   but we'll be ready.
