|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).|

|Life in Cartoon Motion / Mika|
When I was a kid, I remember reading a story about a record that you
couldn't stop playing; no matter how hard you tried, it just compelled
you to hear it again. Today we have a name for this phenomenon, the
song that you can't get out of your head: we call it an
a Small World. G'wan, I dare ya.
I mention this because I think I have another candidate. It was the end of the second week of my trip to Australia and New Zealand (what, is he on about that again?), and I turned on a television for the first time that trip. Flipping the channels, I came upon an MTVish show. And after a few minutes I was assaulted with Mika's song, Love Today. Before it had reached the chorus I was in pain; by the time it ended I realized that life as I knew it was over. I hated that song, and I couldn't wait to hear it again. And again. And again.
I suffer for his art. Now it's your turn.
