    The Song of the Week

    Having iTunes in the kitchen means having great music while I cook…making the process not quite so tedious! Here are some songs that have kept me company many a cooking night. They’re awesome. That’s why they’re on the list. Be sure to check them out!

    Click on the Week #/Date to find out why I like the song so much. Click on the name of the song/artist/album to link to the MP3 on Amazon, where you can preview the song and purchase the DRM-free MP3. (DRM-free means once you buy the song, you can put it on as many computers as you want…unlike those pesky iTunes MP3s.) Sometimes an MP3 download is not available, in which case I’ll link you to the CD.

    Week 1: Wasn’t cool yet at week 1… no song of the week.

    Week 2: “The Wind” by Cat Stevens, also found on the fun and funky Rushmore soundtrack

    Week 3: “Picture Of Jesus” by Ben Harper, Diamonds On The Inside

    Week 4: Let Go by Frou Frou, also found on the TOTALLY AWESOME Garden State soundtrack

    Week 5: King Without A Crown by Matisyahu, the live album is pretty awesome too

    Mid-Week Music Bonus Album: Catch the Moonby Lisa Loeb & Elizabeth Mitchell (parent-friendly kids CD)

    Week 6: “Warning Sign” by Coldplay

    Week 7: “Heal Over” by KT Tunstall

    Week 8: “Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right” by Susan Tedeschi

    Week 9: “Dig” by Incubus

    Week 10: “Crooked Teeth” by Death Cab for Cutie

    Week 11: “Spring” from Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons

    Week 12: “Silent House” by the Dixie Chicks

    Weeks 13-23: Click here for a make-up Music post! 🙂 (Please note – none of the music in the week 13-23 music post links to MP3s…it’s going to take me forever to change all those links…you’ll still connect over to Amazon, it will just be to the actual CDs instead.)
