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

Mein kleiner grüner Kaktus / Palast Orchester mit seinem Sänger Max Raabe
Growing up, I wondered if I was alone in my weirdness. I guess I was just waiting for the Internet to come along and help me find others of my kind. I'm talkin' about you, Boing Boing!

Case in point: Max Raabe and the Palast Orchestra, which I discovered a few weeks ago when Boing Boing wrote about their amazing cover of Britney Spears' Oops I Did It Again. Imagine Britney as a German Rudy Vallee. (No, that doesn't begin to describe it.) And Mrs. Federline isn't the only artist (a term I use in its most generic sense) to get the Palast treatment. Their versions of Super Trouper and We Will Rock You are equally wonderful.

Sadly, none of their pop covers have made it to the iTMS, although I am hopeful. But you can hear Max and the band in their element, doing German pop from the 20s and 30s. And that's almost as good, if not nearly so funny. And maybe if we ask real nice, maybe we can get Max's Hitpalast for ourselves.
