Ye Olde Bloggens are re-posts of old blogs
by Bridget Eileen - Writer in Providence, Rhode Island 

The following post was originally posted on one of Bridget Eileen’s old blogs: In the Pines, Neophyte Poetics, Bridget Eileen’s Commonplace Book, Dreaming Bridge Designs or A Vegetarian Notebook. They aren’t all fancy with photos and subheadings and search descriptions, or even that much content, sometimes. They’re here for posterity, because it’s fun to read the archives!

In the previous blog, I began discussing "Music That's New to Me in 2007", purchased from iTunes this year, and all the little stories and links that go along with it. Consider it a tome to new and old music alike and the glory of having it all at your fingertips thanks to the magic of iTunes.

Let's see, what have I purchased since I first started my iTunes librarianship?

Ben Harper Burn to Shine because I lost my original - this is so funny that I mention this CD since I was just talking about the athlete crushes. This always reminds me of the time I was so antagonistically smitten with K evin! How appropriate!

Carole King Tapestry because of the Gilmore Girls' final season - Carole King is one kick ass songwriter, but you probably already knew that. Oddly enough, the song I think is the worst on Tapestry is "Tapestry". It's cheesy and canned. The rest all pack a little Carole King-ish punch. It was probably written by Manilow. I should do some research on that. It'll be in a follow up blog. This one's just an over view.

Cat Power The Greatest because Mom liked the Cat Stevens cover in the diamond commercial - I like her and I don't care who thinks she only "made it" because she is pretty and wear high fashion. The songs are still gorgeous.

Cat Stevens The Very Best of Cat Stevens because I lost or gave away my other one - I just mentioned his cover by Cat Power, but I got Cat Stevens because it reminds me of my 21st birthday. My mom took me out at 10 PM on the 13th. We had two pints of Guinness in a small pub and the live band in the bar, which had only about 15 people in it, played some Cat Stevens songs. My 21st birthday week was a fabulous celebration.

More to come!
