Filler Friday (Can I honestly call it 'filler' when I haven't been blogging on a regular basis?!)

I listen to all different kinds of music: country, alternative, rock, classic rock, swing music, coffee house/easy listening stuff, rap, and hip/hop. Yes, rap and hip/hop. I'm sure that makes several of you cringe.
So, in my jeep, I listen to satellite radio sometimes. I love the variety. I can listen to Frank Sinatra if I want to, or NPR, CNN, or classic rock. I stumbled on this station, and now I listen every day, when I can.
I used to spend my afternoons listening to Russ Martin. Again, that might make some of you cringe. He's a jackass, but omg, he made me laugh. Sometimes I wanted to throttle him, but most of the time I didn't take anything to heart that he spoke about. So I am pretty sure that is why I am addicted to Shady 45's afternoon show, The All Out Show. I full-out laugh at some of the things Rude Jude says. He does not put any icing on the cake, let's just put it that way. He is crude, rude, but also brutally honest, and pretty fair about his statements.
That being said, I must admit that I am all 'Swooooon' over Rude Jude's voice. I can't even explain. Just listen to the beginning of the link....he's the one dropping all the f-bombs at the beginning. (I know, I know) It's all raspy and sexy and stuff....

So, how do I make a smooth transition from that to the following? Aw, hell, who knows.

Voices that make me all Swoooooooon (sound clips attached, just to prove to you what a f-ing nutcake I am):

Sir Mix A Lot
Ludacris
Common
John Legend
Josh Turner
Just this song by Dwight Yoakam & Sheryl Crow
LL Cool J
this song by Johnny Cash
this song by Social D
probably my biggest swoon: everything by Blue October

Swooooon.

Whose voice makes you swoon? It doesn't have to be a musician, that's just what I'm drawn to. Tell me. Join my nutcake party.

Hmmmm...good idea. I would have to say Stevie Nicks. Dunno what it is...but I dig her raspy voice. Every time I hear a Fleetwood Mac tune, I crank it!

Not music but Sam Elliot. OY!

I don't know if I could name one person who makes me swoon but I love XM radio. I need to broaden my horizons and discover something other than CNN, Comedy channels and Oprah and Friends.

I will say that I love Bob Edwards voice and was devastated when he left Morning Addition. He doesn't make me swoon but close enough. Also, Randy Newman, I love his swoonless voice.

I just put Blue October's Foiled on my Zune. What else should I add? Thx for the recommendation!
