So I Was Driving In To Work This Morning...

And I was looking at the apple blossoms, and the cherry blossoms, and the fog that was obsuring my view of the mountain, and I realized I needed something different this morning. I rumaged around, and dropped this in the player:

Now I can hear y'all saying "BiW, have you lost your miiiinnnnddd?"

No. I haven't. Does she flash the goodies? Yes. Does she sing about the goodies, and what she does or wants to do with them? Yes. But can she actually sing like a house on fire? Oh yeah. This album is filled with hommages to various influences and makes it a fun listen anyway.

Three standout tracks on this album:

1. Candyman. (Sorry, Youtube disabled the embed). Drums and horns in a swing arrangment with layered vocals? Candy indeed.

2. Ain't No Other Man. (Again, disabled embed.) I don't think any woman would have ever felt this way about yours truly, but I still like the song. Makes the head bob.

3. Pray. (Again, with the embed.)
Listening to this really loud, there is a lot going on in this track, and I still haven't figured it all out yet.

Now go back to work, and grumble about the minutes from your life you are never going to get back.
