CD Exchange - Lori

Still need to get this written up Last, but certainly not least, Lori's CD in the exchange - Bad Girls . . . easily my favorite (how could it not be?) Great idea for a song collection, and a great CD cover featuring pulp fiction cover art. I should have known she would come up with something that would put a smile on my face.

  1. Cuz I Can: Pink ~ I can't decide whether I like Pink or not. Girl can rock it, that's for sure, and this was the height of her "in your face" period. Definitely a great song to give ya a lift.
  2. Bitch: Meredith Brooks ~ This song has always cracked me up, not sure why - maybe it always struck me as an ode to PMS.
  3. Manhunt: Karen Kamon ~ Loved this scene in Flashdance. I thought Cynthia Rhodes was so much more talented than Jennifer Beals, including doing her own dancing. I'm just saying
  4. Naughty Girl: Beyonce ~ There are songs that only work in this mix. This is a prime example. There is literally no chance I would listen to Beyonce under any other circumstance, but slotted in here I can let it play.
  5. Bad Girls: Donna Summer ~ Classic.
  6. Gimme!Gimme! Gimme!: ABBA ~ I am usually an ABBA fan, this one doesn't work for me...except in this context.
  7. I Touch Myself: Divinyls ~ I love Divinyls! I had one of their albums on cassette (not the one with this song, though) and wore it out. One of my first CD purchases was replacing that mangled cassette. I Touch Myself is a punk love song extraordinaire.
  8. Boy: Book of Love ~ Not familiar with this one at all, but I like it. Cool tune.
  9. Sex (I'm A...): Berlin ~ Love them, love this song - and actually, I love the message, you can have all the variety you need with one person. Of course, that was just my take on it...
  10. Bad Girl: Madonna ~ I know Lori has a love/hate relationship with Madonna. I have half of that
  11. Feelin' Love: Paula Cole ~ Another nutjob with a great voice. I don't think I ever heard this one before, but it has a very cool, slinky vibe that I like. And the lyrics - whoa.
  12. Never Will I Marry: Sheena Easton ~ An old Broadway showtune made much hipper by...Sheena Easton. Who'd have thunk it?
  13. Whatever Lola Wants: Sarah Vaughan ~ An old Broadway showtune made even cooler by...Sarah Vaughan. No surprise there.
  14. Thirteen Men: Ann Margret ~ I have a soft spot for Ann Margret, as I have written before. Somehow I doubt she would have to have been the last girl on earth to get the sort of attention she is singing about.
  15. Sugar Me: Nancy Sinatra ~ The reason why her boots were made for walking, too many girls at the candy counter.
  16. Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves: Cher ~ I had forgotten how catchy this tune is.
  17. Jolene: Dolly Parton ~ Dolly is such a great songwriter. Would she really be reduced to begging to hold on to her man, flaming locks and emerald eyes not withstanding?
  18. Before He Cheats: Carrie Underwood ~ My favorite Idol winner by far. Her first singles were very sweet, then she released this sassy little number. I think most of us girls can relate - and I always sing along.
  19. Banks of the Ohio: Olivia Newton-John ~ Wow, what a downer this song is. Ouch.
  20. Cell Block Tango: Catherine Zeta Jones & Chicago cast ~ "He had it comin'" - yeah he did. Sing it girls.

~ Listen ~
