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

K-tel Presents Big Soundtrack Hits 1999 / The Obscure
K-tel Presents Big Soundtrack Hits 1999 K-tel lives! Let's celebrate; break out a box of cheap wine!

Back in the good old days of records, K-tel ads were all over television, generally during reruns of classics like Hogan's Heroes. They were purveyors of compilations, just the thing for getting the one hit from pop's one hit wonders. In some twisted way, they were the ancestor of all of us iMix'ers here on the iTMS.

It's been years since I've heard from K-tel. So imagine my surprise to find a fifteen year old collection of movie songs from 1999. And imagine what happend to that surprise when I sampled a few tracks. And eventually realized that The Obscure didn't refer to the album. No, it's the name of the cover band that made this travesty. Not that many bands could have handled Gordon Lightfoot, Pink Floyd, Culture Club, Natalie Imbruglia and so many more.

If I were them, I'd sue.
