A musical Monday with Ray LaMontagne.

Through no choice and no fault of my own I was slowly saturated with the music of Ray LaMontagne, I could not escape him, the Paramour insisted on playing him while he cooked, I would hear him sing his soul laden tunes in the shower, it was relentless. Then one day, as I was returning from a shoe shopping trip or other, I found myself singing Jolene in the car, and then I realised it. I was a god damned Ray LaMontagne convert.
So, bearing that in mind, here, you lot listen, see if you don't end up humming his bloody music when you least expect it.
He's got a new album out too, Till the Sun Turns Black. You should buy it.

Ah crap! I have been singing this song for days! In a receptive mood.

Sorry, but I'm VELLY glad to hear that. I don't see why I should have to be the only one going about singing his tunes non stop. I"ve been working all morning wearing my bloody ipod because the moment I stop listening to other music this kicks straight back in.
It's relentless.

Hmm. I don't have anything by him but might have to look into that. He has a lovely sexy-looking throat and neck. I'm a sucker for a nice throat.

He's a very very painfully shy man too, a complete anomaly in the world of music. I don't know what that has to do with his throat, but it makes me like him more.

Ray LaMontagne is good but the new Tori Amos CD "American Doll Posse" has been stuck on heavy rotation since I bought it last week

Saw him at a small venue in Amsterdam about a year and a half ago. He was amazing - even better live than recorded. He was incredibly shy and seemed so uncomfortable to be in the limelight - didn't take anything away from it though. Wonderful evening. Oh and he signed my cd afterwards!

Don't mind too much now. It's certainly grown on me. I'm weak minded, "these aren't the droids we're looking for".
