After the horror fest of this weekend, I’m ready to curl up on my couch with some new tracks and recover from the sugar rush—especially in this rainy winter weather. If you’re still enjoying blue skies, I’ve got mad jealousy! 

Missy Elliot – “I Can’t Stand The Rain”
Missaaaaaay! I love this woman more than is probably healthy, and it cannot be denied: her tunes are fresher than a new loaf of bread. This old school Missy track is what got me on the Elliot train in the first place, and I’ve never looked back. Lulettes, she is supa dupa fly. 

Bill Withers – “Ain’t No Sunshine”
Bill Withers’ smooth vocals and delivery make this song a must have for your car, your ipod, or mix cd for that special someone in your life—trust me on this one, folks. Plus, check out his sweet turtleneck!  Amazing.

Rupert Holmes – “Escape (The Pina Colada Song)”
If you don’t like this song, you’re nuts! Cute lyrics and a catchy as hell melody make for a delightful storytelling song—and, c’mon: everyone likes pina coladas and getting caught in the rain. Everyone.
