Listen With Me: Bjork to Bowie to Boogie Woogie

Regular readers know I post video variations of Amazing Grace. Some are well-known versions by Elvis or Mahalia Jackson. Lesser known versions, played on unusual instruments or by musicians unexpected to have a spiritual side.

New, now, is my personal playlist, through Facebook and Playlist.com. This is a hodge-podge of electronica, synth-pop, folk, classical, rock, jazz fusion, klezmer, and whatever else causes me momentary interest. Right now, you'll hear Thomas Dolby, Bjork, Phil Keaggy, Larry Norman, David Bowie and several others -- a mere 110+ songs. As fancy calls, I'll add to it.

Got any good suggestions?

Take a listen. If you listen at my profile, Facebook will shuffle the songs. I might reorder them as well.
