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.”

Here are some of his picks sampled in the podcast:

1. I Never Loved a Man
Aretha Franklin

2. Dance to the Music
Sly and the Family Stone

3. Love is a Losing Game
Amy Winehouse

4. In the Midnight Hour
Wilson Pickett

5. Whole Lotta Shakin’
Jerry Lee Lewis

6. Son of a Preacher Man
Dusty Springfield

7. Cry to Me
Solomon Burke

8. Heartbreak Hotel
Elvis Presley

9. Reconsider Me
Johhny Adams

10. Be-Bop-A Lula
Gene Vincent
