About Vera:

Hi! Thanks for visiting "Lady and the Blog". I would love for you to learn a little more about me and my family! Hope you enjoy your visit!

Let’s Talk Music


I’ve mentioned before that I LIVE with headphones on while I am working. If I’m at home or if I’m at Starbucks (you know, my office) I HAVE to have music on to distract me from what’s going on around me. I wanted to share my iTunes list in case you are in the market for some new tunes.

For the last 3 days I’ve been listening to Alicia Keys on REPEAT. It’s like… embarrassing. Thank goodness no one around me has to hear what I’m hearing. I can’t GET OVER how much I love ‘Un-Thinkable’.

There’s some new and some old in my current mix. I typically switch out the old once every few weeks for variety.

Any favorites right now you’d like to share? Always up learning about new music.

  1. I also listen to music in my office since I’m typing almost all day. My current favs are Paramore “The Only Exception”, B.O.B “Airplanes”, Eminem featuring Rihanna “Love the way you lie” and for old school Eric Clapton “I’ve got a rock n roll heart” (its the song on the commerical w/him for the fender phone” and some Jimi Hendrix “the wind cries mary”

    My 8 month old is all about James Taylor 🙂

  2. I am loving Roisin Murphy & Beach House right now.

  3. omg! though we have so much in common, i’ll bet we don’t have ONE common song on our ITUNES lists!

  4. I looked at your playlist, you might like Ladyhawke.

  5. I am still trying to figure out my MP3 player. Is ITunes the only place to get music online?

  6. I also love that Alicia Keys song! I have been listening to a lot of Bruno Mars (All she knows and Runaway) and I LOVE Ne-yo’s song I Come First! 🙂

  7. Songs I am addicted to lately:

    Nothin’ But Love – Whitney Houston
    Jane Monheit and Michael Buble – I Won’t Dance
    Half of my Heart – John Mayer & Taylor Swift
    Georgia on my mind – Ray Charles
    Damn Your Eyes – Etta James
    The ultimate summer song (my girls are addicted) Iko Iko – Dixie Cups
    The BEST song for running – Naturally – Selena Gomez (don’t judge) 😉

    My iTunes is insanely huge, it’s almost embarrassing. And if anyone looked at it, they’d think it was 10 different peoples’ music. LOL

    For my new workout playlist this week, here are a few. I have to have really rockin’ music to keep me motivated -especially running on the treadmill. I just added a few recently:

    Can’t Be Tamed – Miley Cyrus
    Make Me Wanna Die – The Pretty Reckless
    The Runaways Soundtrack
    Your Love Is My Drug – Ke$ha
    Light of the morning – Band of skulls

    A good resource for new tunes is checking the Vampire Diaries website. they have a listing of each episodes’ music – and there’s a lot. I have found some EXCELLENT new music that way. 🙂

    I watched Reality Bites last night and now it has me wanting to pull out my cd of the soundtrack again and add it to my iTunes.

  9. I like music too.But i don’t use the same player.

  10. I love love love music! The last year and a half I have been in a massive English folk music phase. The scene over there is absolutely exploding & I help promote a couple of solo musicians.

    Here are my favorites:
    ~Bobby Long
    ~Marcus Foster
    ~Sam Bradley
    ~Johnny Flynn
    ~Laura Marling
    ~Mumford & Sons
    ~Alan Pownall (sort of English Jason Mraz)
    ~Jay Jay Pistolet
    ~Andrew Davie
    ~Check out Communion Records

    I could go on and on and on. 🙂
