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

The Best of Shel Silverstein: His Words His Songs His Friends
The Best of Shel Silverstein: His Words His Songs His Friends I first encountered Shel Silverstein in the pages of Playboy, which included his poetry among its range of literary offerings. (I can't claim to have read Playboy for the articles, at least not with a straight face. But I did read the articles. At least the short ones. But I digress.)

Actually, I ran into Shel even before I worked up the nerve to buy Playboy. Unbeknownst to me, he'd provided the lyrics to some favorite novelty songs. Remember The Unicorn? Some Irish guys may have performed that little bible lesson, but it was this bald Jewish imp who gave them the words. And, as miraculous as it is that Dr. Hook & The Medicine Show could produce intelligible sounds, it was Shel again who introduced them to Sylvia's Mother and put them on The Cover of The Rolling Stone.

The iTMS puts this collection under Children's Music. Guess it's just as well I never grew up.
