|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).|

|Girl / Tiny Tim & Brave Combo|
I first heard Brave Combo on some program on National Public
Radio. I can't say I'm a big polka fan, but there's something about
these guys that's infectious. When they demonstrated how
Are Strange by
Doors could be polkafied, they really had my attention.
I'm old enough to remember when Tiny Tim made his first appearance on Laugh In. He was, and remained to the end, a joke. But I could never quite figure out if he himself was in on the joke. I hope so.
But combine these two unique talents and you get an album that's funny, serious and not half bad. Some of the selections are unfortunate; some are inspired. I'll let you figure out which is which.
