New old music

I'm in desperate need of new music. I've worn out the 70 or so songs I downloaded 2 years ago and need new music to surround me in my studio. I've been shopping at itunes lately. One song I knew I had to have was this one. It was also used in one of the best movie intros ever made, Lord of War. The life of a bullet...

What you've worn out downloads? Oh no! I thought they were indestructible! ;-)

Jim's been shopping on itunes for new old music too... he's ever hopeful he'll reawaken my musical interest... all he has to do is play it to me live and I love it... somehow recorded just doesn't spark me the same way... though I'm glad it works for you!

Great intro! Is the movie worth renting?

Music suggestions....anything rock from the 70's. Van Morrison, Zeppelin, The Who...can't go wrong there.

Caroline: I meant worn out mentally, need some change. Lucky you having a musical partner to play live music for you. No one is musical in this family, although sometimes I think I can sing, then my kids bring me back to reality- "mom stop that singing!" *hands over ears"

Melody: yes! go rent it, it's fantastic, loved it.

Groovin on Eddie Vedder right now (-that didn't sound right, but I'll leave it:) and I love Van Morrison and The Who. Thanks for passing on the disco:), although I did have a 45 lp of Le Freak I obsessively listened to over and over when I was 12.

Melody said...

you were 12 when LeFreak was popular....I was 17 or 18. Oh yeah, you are younger than me...I forgot. People forget that disco is where most dance music originated from...way back when. I also loved the soundtrack from Slumdog Millionnaire which also happens to be one of my favourite movies this year. Everyone should see it as it is the "little movie that could".

pandora.com is great....you can 'teach' it what kinds of music you like. i get to hear wild stuff from all over the world.
but i could just as easily create another 'station' and make it more traditional or jazz or whatever i want.

Andrew Bird and Amos Lee are two recent ITune dowloads for me, but I'm an old hippie, with very un-hip musical tastes.

Also Rufus Wainwright...

Melody: need to definitely check out Slumdog Millionaire. Maybe I'm turned off by disco because I dance as well as Elaine on Seinfeld (scary)

Paula: Thanks for the link. My taste are incredibly diverse and it's sounds great to be able to access international music so easily (email on the way, LOVE the latest clock)

Sharon: Rufus Wainwright is great, love his version of Leonard Cohens Hallelujah and his Berlin coffee house style songs. And yay, for old hippies! My spirit is there.
