|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).

|Stardust... The Great American Songbook, Vol III / Rod Stewart
I guess it's nice that Rod Stewart can find work now that he's
passé as a rocker. But I'm kind of bemused by his success with
these albums of old standards. Why would somebody want to listen to
Stewart's hoarse croak, when they could enjoy
Connick, Jr. or
Feinstein. Or go back to people who made these songs famous in
the first place; why Stewart's version of
a Wonderful World when you can have
Or am I just being old and cranky? Is it a good thing to have Stewart introduce these songs to a new generation who may eventually discover other, more tuneful performers? And speaking of old and cranky, does anybody else think the cover of this album make Stewart look like an extremely nimble half man/half woman? Don't those legs look like they're emerging from his torso?
Just me, huh?
