Wake Up To Your iPod (AMR Week 2)

Susan notes: Amazing Music Rocks was inspired by a recent evening of music with friends, which was in turn inspired by a book called Fitting in is Vastly Overrated. Anyway, Louise, who attended the soiree, "volunteered" to share a weekly list of great tunes from her extensive library. This is her first instalment. I think it's brilliant. I hope you will too. Can't wait 'til next week to hear the next five....

This week, AMR was inspired, strangely enough, by...of all things, my alarm clock.

Whilst whittling down the numerous themes I had already lined up for the coming weeks, I awoke, one morning last week, to the sound of my iPod alarm clock. They just came rolling out! One great song after another ... five in a row in fact. I thought, rather like the Pick Six at the races, I had hit the jackpot and had a ready-made AMR Week 2 Playlist.
I sat beside my ‘set-to-shuffle-ipod’ (thinking to myself, I really MUST get ready for work now!), just WILLING the thing to belt out another great one and not some random rubbish I often find myself wondering how on earth found its way on to the thing in the first place.

Anyway, five great songs later...no particular theme but maybe wake up to them as I did - I can guarantee a great start to the day, but not your punctual arrival at the office.

Here are the tunes:
  1. Gone - Kosheen
  2. Elsewhere - Sarah McLachlan
  3. Enchant Me - The Amalgamation of Soundz
  4. Blame it On Me - Maria Mena
  5. Everything Goes - Natalie Imbrugli
