#FridayFive: Linda Ronstadt

I fell in love with Linda Ronstadt as Mabel in The Pirates of Penzance. It wasn’t until years later – in college – that I started listening to her albums. Her voice is incredible and always reminds me of my mom, especially when I listen to her Roy Orbison covers.

These are my five favorite Linda Ronstadt tracks:

  1. Blue Bayou
  2. Poor, Poor Pitiful Me
  3. You’re No Good
  4. Desperado
  5. How Do I Make You

A few years ago I was trying to determine what cocktails I could make with the alcohol I had at home. I searched the App Store but couldn't find an app that would let me do that, so I built one.
