Mmmm, "Dig your own hole!"; great song!!!

Couple of favs on this end (I have a very diverse taste to serve different moods :) )

Fleetwood Mac - "Dreams" (top car song!)

An Elvis CD, Beach Boys, Fun Loving Criminals (Mimosa) and Barry White (RIP! ) are other favs that can't stay at home....

Good post to get to know someones taste!

Well, on our last trip we didn't have any music with us, but the one we would have liked most would have been Beth Orton's 'Paris Train': "Now you're sitting on a Paris train, laughing at your own jokes again". Particularly as we were on a Paris train laughing at our own jokes over and over again ;)

A bit of Beck wouldn't go astray either.

Ahhh.. to reminisce now.. let me play that 'Paris Train' song to bring back some memories..

I have been listening to the verve for over ten years now. You are the first verve fan I have heard from and thought you might like to knoe my all time favorite song is "slide away"!

ok ok here goes my list of "can't leave home without"...

5.Californication, mothers milk, blood sugar sex magic or really anything by red hot chili peppers
4. Court & Spark by Joni Mitchell
3. Maroon 5
2. Best of the Eagles
1. Fuel

Actually the list is much much longer, and I had to change the order, and then eliminate some. And then I started over again. Yikes. I didn't think this would be so hard.

You're right Sunshine, lists must be the hardest thing to come up with... there was/is a long thread with 'what's your favorite city' somewhere floating around.... now that was a hard question!!!

Oh my gosh! I have to check out that "Paris Train" song!

My favorite CD is Zen by DJ Krush. It's really relaxing, kind of laid-back and chilled.
Other than that, The Best of U2 (the earlier one).
