An instrumental version of Michael Jackson’s Thriller being on the 100 Classic Spooky Songs and Tunes album plus a commenter (Kath) linking to a video with another version of the song sent me looking for the original. The song and classic zombie video were all so iconic when it came out near 30 years ago. Heck, due to its cultural significance, it became the first music video a few years ago to be added to the US national film archive.
So did you get scared watching Thriller again? Silly me jumped a few times and its daylight out. So note to self: do not watch at night. Cause this is thriller…thriller night!
I’ve been checking out many of the companies that will have applications integrated into Facebook’s timeline profile. One that has captivated me so far is: Spotify.
Why? Well while I like music, I don’t really follow a lot of bands or listen to a lot of music. And so as this service which will provide free access to more than 15million tracks, thinking that I’ll be able to discover and enjoy a lot more music without first having to pay for it.
Also, the beauty of this application/service as that by being integrated with Facebook, I’ll be able to discover music through my friends. Thinking that will be quite powerful as it will most likely help me find music that I would not have discovered on my own.
So well done Spotify and here’s hoping that they can work things out so the artists who’se music we’ll all be enjoying more benefit as much. And to do my part, I will most likely sign up for a premium account!
So I’m in the middle of organizing my apartment and I’m thinking of purchasing a cd storage binder and throwing away for the cases for my music cds. From a collectors standpoint, is that sensible? Part of me doesn’t really want to, but as my music collection grows, I really don’t have the space for all the cd holders.
I was introduced to Eva Cassidy via a Nightline episode several years ago. That episode was repeated this past new year’s eve. This is turn prompted me to finally order one of her cds: Songbird. Such a shame that it was in death that she became a star. She has such a strong powerful voice; simply breathtaking. In addition, she has great range — singing not just blues but also gospel, country, etc. Her rendition of all the songs on the Songbird album is great, but I particularly like Over the Rainbow. The first time I heard it, it brought tears to my eyes.
