What you're about to read is a collection of pointers to some of the music I've discovered on the iTunes Music Store, music I like enough that I want to share it. If you're an iPod owner and an iTunes fan (and if you aren't, what are you doing here?), maybe you'll find something new. Click on any of the CD covers to bounce over to the store and sample a few tracks. And then maybe stop by my other blog for a few well chosen words (and maybe a random snark or two).RSS feed

Plague Songs / Various Artists
Talk about your bad ideas! What we have here is a collection of tracks that represent the Ten Plagues that Moses (with a little help from God) used against Pharoah in Exodus. (For the biblically challenged, think Charlton Heston and Yul Brynner.) I mean really; who wants to hear songs about boils and lice and blood everywhere?

But sometimes a bad idea can be realized so well that it goes beyond not bad and edges into brilliant. I imagine part of the challenge is to find the right people for such an odd project. And that they've done, including personal favorites The Tiger Lillies and Imogen Heap. But even more amazing is that they've produced such a listenable album. Certainly more entertaining than hearing Edward G. Robinson intoning "Where's yer messiah noooowwww" every year around Passover.
