My Playlist: Dan Renzi

(Click image to enlarge)

My Playlist is a new item on Arjan Writes that spotlights a well-known personality who shares some of his or her favorite tracks of the moment. The first person to be featured is writer/blogger/actor/television star Dan Renzi. Dan is mostly know from his work for MTV that he combines with a successful career as a writer and actor. If you have a moment, head on over to his fantastically funny blog. Thanks for sharing your top songs, Dan!

Johnny Cash, "Folsom Prison Blues"
Movie, schmovie.  I have always loved Johnny Cash, especially this song.  What a fuckin' stud. Runner-Up: "Ring Of Fire" makes me dance around the room and sing along.

Madonna, "Hung Up"


Dolly Parton, "Twelfth of Never," with Keith Urban

Am I the only person who recognizes the extreme anti-war message of her album "Those Were The Days"?  Who knew Dolly was so political? Whatever, the album is great regardless of the theme. P.S.:  I will marry Keith Urban someday.

Supreme Beings Of Leisure, "Strangelove Addicton"
This is an old song, but I've been having relationship problems lately and the lyrics sing true.  "I feel/That I'm not good enough for you/I just don't measure up..."

Ben Folds, "Gracie"

This song is about his daughter, which is the cutest thing ever. I saw him perform at a taping of PBS's "Austin City Limits" and I was hooked. His lyrics are cathartic and geeky and fun.

James Blunt, "So Long Jimmy"
"You're Beautiful" is on the radio, but it's a little too weird for me. "So Long Jimmy" should be released soon, it's beautiful.

Michael Buble', "For Once In My Life"
I picked this song at random. I love everything he sings. I even love his Starbucks commercials. I love it all.

His website lists sites he has been featured on recently, but the link to this one is wrong. He linked gay.com under "Arjan Writes" I'd tell him, but I'm too starstruck.
