iTunes Celebrity Playlist Become Podcasts…with Tom Jones


The iTunes Celeb Playlist feature is now a free podcast. Kicking off the 15-minute-podcast of tracks loved by the rich and famous is Tom Jones, who recently admitted that his knowing hands are all a fumble when it comes to his iPod, which is stocked by an assistant.

The podcast is worth it just to hear that Welsh accent as a very personable Jones admits first hearing Aretha Franklin on the car radio thinking it was jazz singer Nancy Wilson , professes his love for Amy Winehouse’s “Back to Black,”  and thinking Elvis was talking about “salomi” instead of “so lonely.”

1. I Never Loved a Man
Aretha Franklin

2. Dance to the Music

3. Love is a Losing Game

4. In the Midnight Hour
