What are you listening to? This is what a few of our Nelson readers had on their iPods this week.

This is your playlist Nelson. We want to know what song you just can’t get out of your head this week. Is it a new song? Or maybe a classic that you think is due for a comeback. Email your song to vurb@nelsonstar.com

Blank Maps by Cold Specks

There seems to be an abundance of strong female vocalists right now and Al Spx aka Cold Specks (who opened for Great Lake Swimmers at The Royal on Wednesday night) is one to watch for.

Keep Ya Head Up by 2pac

Seems that 2pac is alive and well, especially after his reincarnation at the Coachella Music Festival. Some believe this is one of the few “family friendly” 2pac songs.

Nashville by Noah Gundersen

Armed with his sister Abby, Noah Gundersen is captivating singer songwriter and this is a must on a playlist for any acoustic, singer/songwriter junkie.

The Golden Age by The Asteroids Galaxy Tour

Nothing like a beer commercial and plus 20s weather to make you feel like it’s summer. This song by The Asteroids Galaxy Tour definitely makes it feel a little bit more like summer. Add this one to your iPod and head to the beach with a… soda pop.

For True by Trombone Shorty

On Trombone Shorty’s latest album he was able to gather together some world famous talent like Jeff Beck and Lenny Kravitz. His high energy music is a must for any playlist.

Crazy Train by Ozzy Ozbourne

What playlist isn’t complete with a little Ozzy.

April in Paris by Charlie Parker

Hip hop, rock, singer/songwriter and now a little jazz. April in Paris has been performed by some of the jazz greats but the Charlie Parker version adds a little something special. Check it out.

Mr. Blue Sky by ELO

Imagine several Bob Ross clones playing the cello, guitar, drums and singing and you have ELO aka Electric Light Orchestra. This song is a must for a spring playlist and with temperatures hitting the high 20s this weekend we’ll all be saying ‘hi’ to Mr. Blue Sky.

Disparate Youth by Santigold

When I hear this song I want to put on my shades, climb in the car, roll down the windows and go for a drive. Santigold is like a MIA hybrid who can conjure up one hell of a dance party.
