My Music Monday
My new weekly feature of music I like, even if the videos are sub-par. I'll try to find cool videos as well.
Today is the Mary Chapin Carpenter's "I Have a Need for Solitude".
I used to be a big fan of Carpenter's over the last two decades, and her style has not changed all that much. My tastes might have, because, while I still love the sound of her alto, her last two or three albums have bored me - more than just a little bit. She used to mix it up in tempo and such, but now it seems like one continual song................for three disks.
I stopped buying them.
That being said, this track is off her latest disk, 2010's Grammy nominated The Age of Miracles.
I like the track a lot, but as I've sampled the others from the disk, I don't like any other song enough to purchase the entire album.
Still, I do like her voice and the song is nice. It makes me want to go back and listen to some of her older music.
