This week's question/activity. Brief reminder: What are you passionate about besides reading and blogging? Get us involved.
It's hard to come up with a non-blogging, non-reading hobby. If you're me. I guess I'm not that well-rounded. Sure, I used to have hobbies. But is it fair to highlight something I haven't done in four years? Not really. So what I'm going with is an immersion experience into a certain kind of music...a certain style of music. The kind that makes me feel good and happy...and sometimes hungry :)
Like all obsessions, this one started off small enough. An album picked up here, borrowed there. Frank Sinatra's Greatest Hits, volume one. Dean Martin's All-Time Greatest Hits. The soundtrack to What Women Want. And also the soundtrack to Return to Me. (Now that I think about it, Fools Rush In had a lot of *good* music too, but that movie obviously didn't warrant a soundtrack, though if they'd had it, I'd have bought it!!!) But it wasn't enough. I needed more, and more, and more.
Some of my favorites: Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Bobby Darin, Tony Martin, Louis Armstrong, Nat King Cole, Bing Crosby, Fred Astaire, Perry Como, Tony Bennett, etc. And of course, MICHAEL BUBLE.
