I'm still not completely happy with the way Switchpod is working for me, so this is only going to be an occasional thing. That's assuming this actually works. So here are three songs as a test to see if it works.
The first is by Neko Case. For some reason, I think of Mireille when I listen to this song. She's written that she's into sad music lately, and this is a sad piece of music sung beautifully.
I Wish I Was The Moon.
I include this just because I have often spoke highly of Sean Panting many, many times. And this is one of my favourites of his "Victrola" CD.
And this is included because it is simply the filthiest song I've heard in quite some time. Yes, there are plenty of rap songs that have more profanity and are probably just as explicit. But there's just something about this song that had me laughing. It's by Loudon Wainwright III off a CD call "Rogue's Gallery" - a selection of sea shanties. Many of the songs are terrible, to be honest. But this is amusing. I wonder if anyone in Newfoundland has covered it before.
Good Ship Venus
Anyway, let me know if this works, and what you think.
