Post me some music recommendations in the comments. I have this unlimited Yahoo! music thing and have stagnated on what to listen to.

Do my bidding!

  1. I highly suggest you listen to “Come on Eileen,” by Dexy’s Midnight Runners— that always gets me in a good mood. 🙂 Or maybe you could switch gears and break out your favorite musical, and remember what “TRADITIIIIIIIIIIOOOON” really means!

    Or there’s always the new Garbage CD, which kicks ass. Or Prince!

    I don’t listen to Fiddler at work. I share an office and may accidentally… sing. Yeah.

    Didn’t know Garbage had a new CD, I’ll have to check it out. Thanks!

  3. Try the Garden State soundtrack. Blue Man Group’s recordings are a good change of pace. Also, Moby is always great for pretty much any mood.

    Hmmm, I got all the Blue Man Group CDs off of Yahoo, and already have all the moby. The Garden State soundtrack is a good idea, I’ve heard a bit of it and liked it.

  5. What is this unlimited yahoo music thing you speak of?

    Yahoo! Music Unlimited. $5 / month gets you access to over 1 million songs. Not EVERYTHING, but even some new music (they had the new Weezer, for example).

    Pretty nice, $60 a year gets a lot of music. I just don’t know what else I should download and try.

    well, i have to figure you already would have thought of most of the things suggested above, and were probably looking for suggestions of things you’ve never heard of before, since you’re clearly interested in expanding your music collection and have an unlimited music thingy. so, if i may suggest a few bands, based on what i know of your musical taste. they’re all very good pop rock that flies under the mainstream american radar: the new pornographers, the polyphonic spree, supergrass, the thrills, the unicorns, the shins, grandaddy, caviar. also, i don’t know how much radio you listen to now, but i absolutely love the new beck and white stripes that i’ve heard

    Cool, they had all of those but one (I think it was “The Shins”). I’ll try them out.

    Dance Hall Crashers

    So, you get to download the songs and keep them and they play and everything? Because that’s a fantastic deal then and I may have to get it myself.

    So it’s a subscription — the music has DRM (it’s WMV), but you can copy it to certain portable devices, listen to it on your computers, and you can choose between streaming it or actually downloading the files. You also get some pretty cool “radio” stations that are customized based off your preferences.

    The negative is that if you cancel your subscription, any music you downloaded is no longer playable. But for $60 a year, that’s not a big deal to me, because I can listen to a lot of different music w/o plunking down the cash for cds.
