Feel The Spin Playlist, January 24th...

Hour 1
(Brand-new/current releases. Particularly intriguing this week is the new Gorillaz track, while my addiction to all things Ke$ha and Dan Black continues. Also, you must, must, must learn more about Matt Morris and Maria Mena.)

Music Again - Adam Lambert
Stylo - Gorillaz
Wonderful Life - Hurts
This Momentary - Delphic
Never Gonna Give In - Michaela Wright
Blah Blah Blah - Ke$ha with 3OH!3
Animal - Ke$ha

I Am Not A Robot - Marina & the Diamonds
Money - Matt Morris
Live Forever - Matt Morris
Calm Under The Waves - Maria Mena
The Fireman of My Dreams - Elouise

Hour 2
(There's no grand intention to this hour. I started by selecting songs that either nourish a world-weary heart, and then started reaching for tunes that allow you to close your eyes and mentally visit someplace lush and lovely)

Hopes And Fears - Will Young
Change - Daniel Merriweather
Human - The Killers
I'll Be Your River - Cyndi Lauper
Be As You Are - Kenny Chesney
Roll On - Kid Rock
Gonna Be Alright - Levi Kreis
Shelter - Lone Justice
A Good Heart - Maria McKee
Carolina In My Mind - James Taylor
Someone Somewhere - Jason Reeves

Hour 3
(This is intentionally the emotional flipside to the previous hour. I have a cold and I'm really feeling tired, and these songs gave me a much-needed bit of smiley energy)

We Belong To The Music - Timabland with Miley Cyrus
Hotter - Parralox
Everytime - Sergey Lazarev
The Reeling - Passion Pit

Do You Mind - Robbie Williams
Many Shades of Black - Adele with the Raconteurs
Rain On Your Parade - Duffy

Hour 4
(The centerpiece of this hour is my recent conversation with Charlotte, a woman I know more about musically than as an actor... or as the daughter to the iconic Serge Gainsbourg. She seemed pleased to be able to sidestep questions about the latter and really dig into the details of her exquisite, luxurious new album, "IRM." Best of all, by the end of our chat, you'll get to hear a side of Charlotte that is quite different than you've ever heard in any other interview. Lord, I love the freedom to throw in a random question here and there!)

Heaven Can Wait - Charlotte Gainsbourg with Beck
A conversation with Charlotte Gainsbourg
Les Collectionneuse - Charlotte Gainsbourg
Trick Pony - Charlotte Gainsbourg
Soldier of Love - Sade
