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

Betcha Bottom Dollar / The Puppini Sisters
The best jokes are often the ones where you don't realize it's a joke until it's too late. When I noticed Betcha Bottom Dollar on the iTunes Store, my first reaction was that it was a reissue of some moldy oldie from my father's time, what with covers of Sisters (which I associate with White Christmas, although I wouldn't be surprised to discover it's much older) and Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy and the like. They certainly sound authentic, although perhaps the lack of the lack of fidelity should have warned me. But then I saw a track called Heart of Glass, and I realized I'd been had. Unless I'm supposed to believe a top ten hit for Blondie actually predates them by a few decades, it seems I'm listening to an incredible simulation of a bygone era, not the real thing. Not that I'm complaining; both the bygone era's material and some of the more recent tracks do very well in the Sisters' hands. Although I have to say that they don't really improve on Kate Bush or Gloria Gaynor. Those covers are throwbacks I'd gladly, ummm, throw back. Betcha Bottom Dollar
