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

For the Kids / Various Artists
For the Kids If you've been reading this blog for a while, you may remember my fondness for cover songs. And if by some chance you share that fondness, you too may be a regular listener to the biweekly Coverville podcast. Which sometimes comes up with real surprises, as it did in a year end top 40 countdown that included a wonderful rendition of Mahna Mahna, made famous by Jim Henson and his Muppets but rendered here by the remarkable Cake. Interestingly, may I even say startlingly, Coverville host Brian Ibbott explained that Mahna Mahna wasn't a Muppet original; it actually got its start on the sountrack to an Italian porn film in the 60s! There's something deeply subversive about porn themes being fed to children. Or not. But taken on its face, Cake's version is sublime. As is Sarah McLachlan's take on The Rainbow Connection, a song that really did start out life with the Muppets and not some Eurotrash skin flick. Unless there's something else they aren't telling me...
