So, let me get something off my chest. I've fallen in love with weird new-wave alternative hippie stoner music. After my years of working/living in the Pop-CHR radio industry air, I'd gotten so attached to that genre of music that I had for forgotten that there are other genres of music! I've always (and I mean always) have loved Big Band and Swing. The shiz from the 40's and 50's.Frank Sinatra anyone? I think in my quest to find good, relaxing and not uptight and all about money and gettin' it in with yo honeys (I'm white, did I mention?). I heard an ad for MP3.com on CBS's B96 in Chicago (love the station), and figured I'd hop over there. I had read an article telling me about their "revamp," so I thought I'd go check it out. I found myself on their free MP3's page at 1am, trying to get o sleep, so I clicked on the alternative section looking for something relaxing (I don't know why, but hey, haha). So I found this track that is like a stoner's dream- or maybe hipster is a better word? (I'm not a stoner). Eric & Magill""You Make It So Good" is the song I clicked on. Since then and hearing that song, I've become addicted to weird hipster alternative msuic? It's weird. I don't know why. I also found a few more free MP3's on MP3.com that I liked, I'll put them in a list below. I mean it's not like I'm making a priority to listen to them, it's like background music.. kinda. Am I the only one?
Hungry Kids Of Hungary - "Set It Right"
Slow Animal - "Sitting Here"
Hoodie Allen - "Turn The City"
Motorama - "Seagulls" and "Alps"
Fredik - "Rites of Spring"
They are all for free at MP3.com
