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

How to Save a Life / The Fray
Way back in the mists of time, when I was first developing a lack of taste in music, there was a band called The Union Gap. This band had a string of Top 40 hits, until somebody (and then everybody) realized that every damn song sounded pretty much the same. At the time they defended this practice by pointing out that you don't want to mess with what works, although maybe you ought to reconsider before it stops working completely.

I mention this because The Fray have a distinctive sound, one which follows you (or at least it does me) from track to track. It isn't as blatant as Gary Puckett & co., thank the FSM. And they can come up with compelling variations on their signature style, as their cover of John Lennon's Happy Xmas (War Is Over) demonstrates. I just hope they break out of their comfort zone more often. It keeps things interesting.
