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

Memories of Utopia / Robin Spielberg
Funny how a visit to the Renaissance Faire always leaves me in a New Agey frame of mind for the next few weeks. At least where music is concerned; I'd like to think that other aspects of my personality are unaffected by the experience. Not that they couldn't stand some affecting. But that's a rap for another time.

But suffice it to say that my affection for Robin Spielberg's piano pieces may be influenced by external forces: those images of girls in long dresses with not exactly politically correct necklines, jugglers, mock Shakespeare and a bit of good English ale. New Age music just fits with that whole scene, even if a piano would be wholly out of place. And time; there were very few pianos in those days.

But Ren Faire ramblings aside, this is perfect background music for a drive in the country or a boring afternoon in the office. You can concentrate on the important stuff and feel like you're in a better place. Not that there's a better place than my office, in case any of my coworkers are reading this...
