How about some music to play loudly? Anyone want to dance?

I picked up this Ida Maria disk when I was in Portland. They didn’t have her latest release which I really want, but I love this album from 2009. What a voice. That husky, lusty sound is so great.

“Okay you’re kind of sexy, but you’re not really special.”
Ida Maria-I Like You So Much Better When You're Naked

“Put A Smile On My Face.” Yes, this song does.
