and then there was music

sweet mother of pearl i have FINALLY discovered how to download sweet music from the internet. yeah though i walk through the land of blogdom, i am an internet novice and am years behind most of the world apparently in discovering all of its wonders.

last year we got the girl a cheap mp3 player and the dog ate it before i could figure out how to get music on it. (we had it more than a year). she got another one for 5th grade graduation and though i figured out how to transfer cds onto it, i still couldn't navigate the music download world. low and behold today i joined rhapsody and downloaded music! i am in heaven. holy cow this is awesome!!!!

so i downloaded our song by taylor hicks for the girl and now i'm like a kid in a candy store putting songs in my music library to burn to cds. it's like a giant light bulb came on and it's so musically bright!

so--name your top five songs you think every person should love and i will download them and adopt them as my own : )

Violent Femmes - Blister in the Sun

Queen - Somebody to Love, Fat Bottom Girls, anything by them, really

Bon Jovi - Dead or Alive, Make a Memory

Abba - Take a Chance on Me (I've loved Abba forever, glad to see it coming back!)

Motley Crue - Smokin in the Boy's Room, Dr. Feelgood

Don't forget Christmas music! My favs of that are Peter, Paul and Mary live and Barenaked Ladies, and Harry Connick Jr, too.
