Where?! What?

Listening to some of the music I’ve bought over the last couple months, some music sets me to wondering ‘Where did I hear this and why did I buy it?’ I still like it, but why?

In the case of ‘Into the Wild” by LP, this doesn’t apply as I knew exactly where I’d heard it. I went looking for the song because of a dadburned bank (or credit card) ad for CITIBank on television. Still the thing talked (or sang) to me. Times like that when I hadn’t a clue, it was SHAZAM to the rescue. That little app has helped me identify more music.



I just like the tune… No other explanation required. What are you listening to lately?

Oh and happy Sunday!

OK, I finally got it, but for the first few bars I was thinking, I don't know what TV he's watching! heh
Good on ya for finding the whole tune. I'm a sucker for a good whistle in just about any tune though.

I don't buy much new music these days. I had to check Pandora see what I had been listening to. (http://www.pandora.com/profile/tucsonrider) And lo and behold, now I recall the last new piece I bought was inspired by a TV ad for a car. The tune was Skee-lo's "I Wish" in the Super Bowl ad with the blonde chick in the purple pumps. I always liked that tune, and had to google to remember the singer/rapper's name. Then I HAD to have it. (Back in the day, I probably would've turned to Limewire, but you know...)

That's awesome! Next time I'm in the iTunes store.


Yeah my KIDS were all about limewire. ThatP2P stuff always scared the crap out of me. I know. But it did.

I LOVE that song!

Let's see. We're checking out Mountain Stage on the NPR website, and just yesterday listened to some Punch Brothers and Jimmy LaFave. Picked up a Patsy Cline CD at a yard sale yesterday which was in great shape. And I'm making a list of road trip songs to burn a CD.

Heh. It is a very cool song! Took me a bit to dig it up, but there you are.
