Jazz Baby

So maybe you've decided that you are, in fact a bombshell. Maybe you're just interested in the Bombshell style.

You may have no idea what kind of music should accompany a Bombshell. What music fits her lifestyle? What does a Bombshell listen to when she's in the mood to dance? What music does she play to enhance her "mean reds" or "blues" whilst crying? What music would she play when she's in love?

Our moods and circumstances do play a huge part in the places we frequent, the clothes we wear and the music and musicians we care to listen to.

I can't speak for absolutely ALL bombshells of the world, but I'll endeavor to find some music that I'd be likely to listen to...

Bombshell in Love:
Mozart, Elvis Costello (I love his version of "she"), Nat King Cole, Michael Buble, Barry White...

Bombshell in misery:
Cry Me A River - Diana Krall's version, Julie London's and Justin Timberlakes! Marilyn Monroe, Ella Fitzgerald and Sachmo...

Bombshell in the morning:
(Usually quite inspiring and up-beat to get her started for the day)
Tchaikovsky, Bobby Darin, Dionne Warwick, Louie Prima. . .

Bombshell after work:
(Turning the lights down and unwinding in a bubble bath or just relaxing with a glass of wine)
Debussy, Tony Bennett, lounge music, Ertha Kitt, Black Coffee (love Julie London's version), Ella Fitzgerald.

Bombshell in the kitchen (with someone who'll cook for her):
Dean Martin, Doris Day, Petula Clarke, Bing Crosby, The Village People...

Bombshell on vacation:
Elvis Presley (Hawaii), Wayne Newton (Las Vegas), Beethoven (anywhere), Dolly Parton (country), Edith Piaf (France), anything french...

Shopping Bombshell:
Henry Mancini, Shirley Bassey, Frank Sinatra...

Dancing ("shimmying") Bombshell:
Miles Davis, Elvis Presley, Carol King, 1950's New York jazz, Arty Shaw, Madonna, Gwen Stefani, Ella Fitzgerald, Michael Buble...

Oh I could go on and on... But I won't.
