Lately, I'm all up on old and new soul. Stevie Wonder, Raphael
Saadiq, Tony Toni Tone, Mayer Hawthorne, Nina Simone, and
Inspired by the Repo Man soundtrack, I've been pulling out old punk
favorites of mine.
I'm also a sucker for 60's girl groups. Ronettes and Dusty
Springfield have been getting regular play.
LCD Soundsystem, !!!, and Chromeo and other dancey hipster icons
have also been on rotation.
And all sorts of cheesy pop. Justin Timberlake, TI, Ludacris, Hall
and Oates, Hercules and Love Affair...
