Going Down Under

…My life abroad

for the music lovers July 13, 2008

Lately I have been wondering what music will be like in Australia.  I know that’s about as far away from here as you can get, but I have been assuming that they listen to the same stuff we do.  Should be interesting to find out.  I hope to get some new stuff and bring it back!  But one thing that always confused me was: why do Australians, or Brits or fill in the blank, not seem to have an accent when they sing?  I don’t get it.  I know of one Australian singer-songwriter who has an accent and she’s awesome… her name is Missy Higgins and you should definitely listen to her stuff.  Particularly, The Special Two or Scar.  But mostly, accents seem to go under-the-radar when it comes to music.

Speaking of music, lately I have been loving this thing on itunes.  No, not the free songs.  I mean, yes I love them and think they’re the best thing since sliced bread, but I’m talking about something else.  “Itunes Essentials”.  These are mix albums made up by… well… actually I have no idea who makes them but I love them.  Today I got some stuff from the Cafe Cubana Starbucks mix, the Alternative Pop playlist, and the Surfer’s playlist (reminds me of those Montanita days in Ecuador).  Its my new favorite thing.  I don’t have the money for this.  hah.. story of my life.

    Hi Andrea! You’ve been in my thoughts this morning, so I wanted to let you know I’m praying for you as you make this adjustment. I guess you’ve been “down under” for a couple of days now- how exciting! You are such a worldy woman (in the most Christian sense of the word, of course) and I can’t wait to read about all of your adventures as I sit here at my desk in Springfield!
