The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Adventures in iTunes (3)

So I did my daily trip to the Music Store, and waiting for me (with the dreaded "Beta" notation) is "Just for You." Here's what they decided was Just for Me:

  • Edwin Starr, "Stop the War Now"
  • Salsoul Orchestra, "Magic Bird of Fire"
  • Peter Schickele, "New Horizons in Music Appreciation"
  • Little Milton, "Who's Cheating Who?"
  • Freddie Scott, "Are You Lonely For Me Baby?"
  • Roger Williams, "Born Free"
  • Brian Hyland, "The Joker Went Wild"
  • "Weird Al" Yankovic, "Ebay"
  • Barbara Mandrell, "I Was Country When Country Wasn't Cool"
  • Norah Jones, "Don't Know Why"
  • Shalamar, "Dead Giveaway"
  • Sammy Hagar, "Your Love Is Driving Me Crazy"
  • Michael Jackson, "Thriller"
  • Daryl Hall and John Oates, "Family Man"
  • Lindsay Buckingham, "Go Insane"

I am more impressed with this than I might have expected: I have only six of these already, and none of them have an automatic emetic effect, although I should note that I haven't spun the Thriller album in probably ten years.

There are also a few full-length albums they'd like to sell me, which are a bit more dubious. I pushed the "Tell Me More" button, which served up more albums and 15 more singles, one of which I actually bought, even though I have the 45. (Never underestimate the drawing power of a good stereo mix of something you've always heard in mono.)
