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

Fish Heads / Barnes & Barnes
Fish Heads One of the joys of trolling the iTMS is coming upon a special memory like Fish Heads. Troll... fish heads... it's a play on words. Try to keep up.

According to Wikipedia, which knows all and tells even more, Fish Heads is the single most requested track in the history of The Dr. Demento Show. Wikipedia also has all the scoop on Barnes & Barnes, who are really Robert Haimer and Bill Mumy. Yes, that Bill Mumy, the little kid we all honor every time we imitate a robot swinging its arms and shouting, "Danger, Will Robinson!". If you ever meet him, do the robot thing. I'm sure he can't get enough of that.

Fish Heads comes from an album called Yeah: The Essential Barnes & Barnes. Sadly, the rest of the album isn't available on the iTMS. But maybe, if we're good little consumers, we can get Apple to fill in the gaps. Remember, say voobaha to Barnes & Barnes. It's only polite.
