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 Essential Mormon Tabernacle Choir / Mormon Tabernacle Choir
The Essential Mormon Tabernacle Choir It's awful, I know, but the first image I get when I hear the name Mormon Tabernacle Choir is from the premiere episode of WKRP in Cincinnati. In the moments before Andy Travis changes the station to Rock, there's Dr. Johnny Fever playing the Choir's rendition of Paul Anka's immortal You're Having My Baby. Okay, that's not really the Choir. But it's really funny.

But of course the Mormon Tabernacle Choir isn't funny. It's serious stuff. Even when they do the kind of pops material on this collection. Most of these songs were written for the stage or the screen. And at least a few of them must have been lively. Now they're stately and, yes, serious. Guess it's hard to have fun in large groups.
