PLAYLIST: Dinner Guests

It’s always fun for me to decide what music to play while entertaining guests…and it’s especially nice when someone compliments the choices. I felt like this particular list went over very well and created a perfect mood for dinner with friends.

(We listened to the full albums, but the playlist below is a song from each so you can get a taste!)

Paul Simon – Graceland
Norah Jones – Little Broken Hearts
Rodriguez – Searching for Sugar Man Soundtrack
Ryan Adams – Ashes and Fire
Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings – I Learned The Hard Way

SONG: Rodriguez

“Sugar Man”

I recently saw the documentary Searching for Sugar Man which is basically about the mystery surrounding the musician known as Rodriguez. Sixto Rodriguez was discovered in Detroit during the late 60’s and his career looked promising. But his first two albums never caught on in the U.S. and he faded into obscurity. Unbeknownst to him, Rodriguez became a household name in South Africa during the Apartheid. The doc is really a story about the human spirit and it’s incredibly uplifting. It was  filmed brilliantly and it features music from Rodriguez. The song “Sugar Man” stuck with me the most:
