There have been so many great musicians that have influenced me while finding my own unique style and voice, both in person and through their music, that it is difficult to pinpoint just a few.

Listening to an old Eurythmics album of mine recently brought back a lot of treasured memories of the 80’s. Who could forget Annie Lennox’s deep and soothing voice in hit songs like “Here Comes the Rain Again”, “The Miracle of Love” and “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)”?

Few are aware that Eurythmics was Annie Lennox’s second band, admittedly way more successful than The Tourists, her first collaboration with Dave Stewart, founded in 1977.

I feel alive when I dance!  What better way to get your body moving than to put on some exciting, upbeat music?  When its time to clean house or get outside for some exercise, I love listening to the selections on my ambient and dance music iMix.

Its easy to be your own record producer at iTunes!  Simply select your favorite artists or the songs you love to hear time and again, then pull them together for your personal iMix.  I’ve created seven iMixes – so far – that range from new age music to ambient, chill and dance tunes.

In this Ambient and Dance Music iMix, you’ll find 23 songs from Madonna to Fat Boy Slim!  If you’ve ever wondered what’s playing in a singer songwriter’s iPod… take a peek here.  If you love it, you can download a copy for yourself!

Its my favorite selection of electronic, dance and ambient musics.

Go move! Marcomé ♥
