What you're about to read is a collection of pointers to some of the music I've discovered on the iTunes Music Store, music I like enough that I want to share it. If you're an iPod owner and an iTunes fan (and if you aren't, what are you doing here?), maybe you'll find something new. Click on any of the CD covers to bounce over to the store and sample a few tracks. And then maybe stop by my other blog for a few well chosen words (and maybe a random snark or two).RSS feed

Reba #1's / Reba McEntire
Reba #1's Let me start by saying that I'm not a fan of country music. No, let's be honest: a few seconds of most country songs has me reaching for the off switch. This is not my kind of music at all. Which is why I find it amusing to be recommending this collection of Reba McEntire's hits. Granted, I find Reba more accessible than most country artists. And there's the babe factor to be considered, and a redheaded babe at that. To say nothing of her comic chops, both on her mediocre WB sitcom (watchable when she's onscreen and often painful when she isn't) and on Broadway, where she was brilliant as Annie Oakley in Annie, Get Your Gun. Suffice it to say that I'm willing to give Reba the singer a chance because of Reba the performer. And you know, she's not nearly as agonizing as I expected. Okay, let's be honest: she has a great voice and a great way with her material. But I still stand by my dislike of country music. Just, I guess, not all country music.
