    Your 'Celebrity Playlist?'

    One of my favorite things about iTunes is that you can view celebrity playlists, and see what different artists people listen to. Like Kevin Bacon has a great acoustic version of 'Stuck in a Moment' on his, and apparently Nicole Kidman is a big Outkast fan.

    So I was wondering today what songs I would put on if I made up a playlist myself. Just 15-20 songs that move me, or that I listen to when I'm having a difficult time. I'm wondering what songs other zoners would select as well.

    My list:
    1) Where the Streets Have No Name - U2
    2) Sullivan Street - Counting Crows
    3) Everlong - Foo Fighters
    4) Iris - Goo Goo Dolls
    5) The Waiting - Tom Petty
    6) Knockin' on Heaven's Door - GnR
    7) Hallelujah - Jeff Buckley
    8) Better Man - Pearl Jam
    9) In Your Eyes - Peter Gabriel
    10) Follow My Way - Chris Cornell
    11) Getaway Car - Audioslave
    12) Hunger Strike - Temple of the Dog
    13) Fix You - Coldplay
    14) Wonderwall - Ryan Adams
    15) Closer to You - The Wallflowers
    16) Let it Be - The Beatles
    17) Crash into Me - DMB
    18) Superman - Five for Fighting

    Dom, I absolutely love Dolly's "Jolene" and Pat's "We Belong." Pat Benatar and Martina McBride did a great duet on "We Belong" on a CMT "Crossroads" special. I also like Strait, but "Amarillo By Morning" is my favorite Strait song.
    "Hey...Dad. Wanna Have A Catch?" Kevin Costner in "Field Of Dreams."

    Re: Your 'Celebrity Playlist?'

    "Amarillo By Morning" is my favorite Strait song.
    Came a hair of putting it on the list. Something about "Cheyanne" I just like, though.
    "We Belong" is one of those tunes that never grows old for me. If you ever get to hear it on a really good stereo and listen to it between the speakers...you can hear the guitar strums and the drums crystal clear- it is an amazing tune.

    And now I have to add:

    Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters- Elton John
    Harmony-Elton John
    Rocket Man- Elton John - same as "We Belong" - hear it close up on a great stereo and you'll hear things you never knew were there on the remastered version.

    Thanks. I tend to be eclectic in my musical, as well as other, tastes. After all, life is a smorgasbord.

    I noticed Pavement on your list. My daughter and son-in-law are devotees. They still have an old Pavement bumper sticker on their Forester.
