What I’m Listening To — All The Roadrunning and West

If you were to peek inside my iPod playlist right now, you’d see two albums (is that what we still call them?  I don’t know what to call them anymore):  All the Roadrunning by Mark Knopfler and Emmylou Harris and Lucinda Williams’ West.

Neither are new, but man do they fit the mood for me lately.  All the Roadrunning is a collection of gorgeous duets from these two icons of weathered cool.  I like ’em all, but pay special attention to “This Is Us,” “If This Is Goodbye,” and “I Dug Up a Diamond.”

I like Lucinda Williams for many of the same reasons I like Emmylou Harris — the sultry, “lazy mouth” and southern attitude.  It’s racy in parts, so use discretion, but I especially like “Are You Alright” and “Where Is My Love.”

Here’s to a great weekend!
