My mood has been all over the place lately when it comes to my music. Usually I get in a groove for quite a while — immersing myself in the “World” genre (whatever that is), or some Southern rock, or gangsta rap, or what I like to call “chill” music (which, seems to sometimes fall into that “world” genre and sometimes into electronic). But lately, not one thing has been satisfying me. And there’s nothing just attracting me to say “Hey, you have to buy me!!!” in the iTunes store so I can drown myself in its sounds.

So, here are the top albums/songs I’ve been listening to over the past couple of weeks. From what I can tell, I’ve needed to relax, breathe, meditate, shake my booty, have a drink, celebrate jazz fest, celebrate summer, and get back to my Tennessee roots… And then there’s Twilight Zone. Never sure what that one says — it fits a ton of moods.
