Switchpod test...

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.

Beautiful One

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.

Good Ship Venus...that song was hilarious! Had me doubled over and uttering the odd expletive....priceless!

Well, at least I know it works. It's a ridiculous bit of fun, isn't it?

Oh my Jeez, that song " Good ship Venus" was just what I needed to lift my spirits after a rough day. It had me in stitches.
