In this post I talked about how much I like Pink Martini's version of "The Little Drummer Boy." At the time I could not find a clip of it to share, but just today I found a site that has a little bit of it.

Just scroll down, the clip is in the middle of the page. There is an Itunes button to click, but that must be a default since it is not available there, I still can't find anywhere for you to buy it online, although the album it is from is only a couple bucks on Amazon now.

I would like to buy a copy of I Wish That I Could See You Again by Herman Dune. It is only available on the UK itunes store so it won't let me buy it. Are there other places to buy MP3s that have licensing that will still work in Itunes? I really don't want to buy the whole album since that is the only song I have heard.

Once upon a time I was the king of 45s. If I heard a song I liked on the radio I would stop at nothing to get the 45. For some reason I was never a real big fan of albums, though some of my favorite artists would get bought as albums -and- 45s. I can't remember what year it was (it must have been around '88 though) I lost both any way to discover new music and the income to experiment with music I had never heard. The alternative station in Seattle switched to Rap and this was before music stores had listening stations, so I gave up except for following my favorite artists.

During the period that I was buying 45s I would regularly make mix tapes for friends. The song selection of the first few had the sort of deep meaning that late adolescence imparts to songs that were clearly written to expose your personal inner most being. (blech) They were eventually just fun.

When CDs drove 45s out of production I couldn't find anything that I heard, and anymore I rarely discover any new music. Anyway, I was talking to the Placement person at school and she has been updating her music collection with stuff she has heard on the radio and that the kids have in their demo reals. She found Mika's video of Grace Kelly for me and a little light when on for me. Itunes is like having access to a huge library of 45s...

So, for the first time in at least 15 years, I made a mix tape. Well, playlist, or CD, or what ever this is. (This mix is Inner-most being free. Honest. If I start turning into a 13 year old goth girl, I will change my user name to "Ifeelyourpain" or "myheart4u" or something like that as a warning.) I figure I can't be the only one on my friends list who turned off the radio when Rap took over and has trouble finding fun pop music. So, without further ado, Cartape X.
