I was wondering if anyone could help me identify two songs. One is in a new ipod touch commerical (or maybe the phone) I didn't catch all the lyrics but it was something like "take me to your best friend's house" and there was a "Oh yeahahahahaah" . Another was a song that I heard a few years ago on a spanish radio station. It's not my first or second language so I can't say the lyrics..but I heard it several times so perhaps it was popular...The refrain sounded something like (adida dias) mi amor. And I'd [...]
Blog: Melodies rhapsodical and fair
My honey pie and I are finalists in a contest to win a FREE WEDDING (omg) during a production of Our Town!! Voting closes tonight at midnight and we need votes! Please go HERE HERE HERE and vote for Marshall + Alicia! (No registration required so you have no excuses. It seriously takes like half a second.) (This isn't against the rules because I run this joint so HA. Also if any of you are ever in something that you need votes for, you can do the same even though this place is effectively dead. I [...]
http://www.npr.org/templates/s tory/story.php?storyId=1241148 12&sc=fb&cc=fp its a high quality stream of the new gorillaz album in its entirety. a brand new pop album hasnt brought me as much joy in waaaaaaaaaaaay too long.
sup yawl? been dicking around with music and mixes a lot since i got the new lappy. i figured i would go ahead and post a few links here for everyone in audioland. a few of the tracks have already been posted in previous entries, but not nearly all of them. First off, I have been listening to a lot of 80s euro disco, which i have heard referred to as "Italo" here and there. It was introduced to me by a dj i met while i was studying in newcastle. We all heard some form of it [...]

OKAY so badlydrawnjeff sent me a link to THIS POST about Slow Club and something about the first song posted there, "It Doesn't Have To Be Beautiful," reminded me of another song. THE PROBLEM: I can't figure out what that other song is and I can only think of one part of one line in it. SO MY QUESTION IS, do any of you know of a song that includes the line "I've been sucking on a [...]
what do you guys think of this? http://beatcrave.com/2009-02-0 9/the-most-unwanted-song-scien tifically-composed/ personally, i would love 100% of the song if it were instrumental. i found some of the vocal parts to be a bit abrasive for my taste.
Hey everybody, so I always wanted to be a part of the posting staff for rhapsodical way back when, and now this great opportunity comes along and what do you know but I review cds for a college radio station! So I'm going to try to keep coming to you with new and interesting stuff. So, first up: We Landed on the Moon! Rilo Kiley is probably the best touch stone for this band - female lead singer with some swagger, rock/pop guitar lines with a good hook and [...]

WE'RE BACK So here's the deal: ____rhapsodical is officially open for business again and everyone's allowed to post! It's moderated posting, so badlydrawnjeff and I will approve 2 posts per day if there are enough in the queue. I'm going to enforce some pretty strict posting rules, though, so please keep this post as a reference just in [...]
POP QUIZ 1. Who still has this on their friends list? 2. If I reopened this where ANYONE(!!!) can post, who would keep this on their friends list? It would be moderated posting, I would only accept two or three entries per day, and they would have to be actual ~music blog~ entries (not just link dumps). I only ask because I have so much music I want the world to know about but I have no other outlet for it but here! HAVE AN AWESOME THANKSGIVING
About 50-odd Of Montreal covers . Things are quiet here as we go to our silent death, but that doesn't mean we still can't share now and then.
Geez y'all! So sad to be saying this is my last post. Of course it's not necessarily my last, but you know, things have been heading that way for quite some time. Obviously I will miss doing this very much. It's the only reason I log into LJ anymore! I don't have a "last post ever" ready or anything but I do have a recycled track that I think conveys the sentiment. Master P - Goodbye to my Homies [...]
*tears* hello i am threv aww jeah It looks like our fair group is reaching the end of our journey. I apologize for my personal dearth of posts over the past month - the holiday season was extremely busy, and my band The Secret Life had our CD Release Party ( pix here ). Work has ramped up; pixivixen [...]
Dear friends, For the past two and a half years, this community has been a labor of love for me. (Sometimes it was like my mom used to say in that I loved it, but I sure didn't have to like it, but the love never died.) We've been through a lot together, you [guys] and I. We've endured some pretty rough theme weeks, my transformation from indie slut to whatever I am now, Jeff's marriage, a few love connections (Jamie & Tim for you old-timers), a revolving door of great posters, [...]
Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, Happy Easter and all that. My x-mas was pretty amazing. I went home to Alabama and shot guns, drove SUV's, shopped at Walmart, and went to the dentist. You know, America stuff. Apparently this band is Canadian, but I listened to them a lot while I was home and I think of them fondly as a Southern sort of folky goodness. Don't get me wrong though, this isn't folk music. The name might be the folkiest thing about it. However, there are banjos. Lots of [...]
Lawdy it's 2008 already! Ohhhh how time flies when you have a million things to do. Let's start this party off with some Charles Mingus! (Well to be fair, Charles Mingus Sextet with Eric Dolphy.) Dude's a jazz bassist that I've recently fallen hard for thanks in part to one Nate Query. The first sentence of his bio on allmusic really brought the lol and was also pretty dead on in describing him, so I'mma copy/paste that for you. "Irascible, demanding, bullying, and probably a genius, Charles Mingus cut himself a uniquely [...]
Allow me to direct you to My Old Kentucky Blog 's Christmas mix as a gift to you. Merry Christmas!
Ohhhh Lord have mercy on our souls. Did you guys all get in on the party that went down at Okkervil River's website last week? A FREE download of a "mixtape" they made of live covers and such, complete with Christmas and/or Hanukkah-themed album art and really intense and personal and in-depth liner notes. It's not like it's a secret that I'm really really into Okkervil River or anything, but man if The Decemberists keep canceling tours that I'm spending $200 on and Okkervil River keeps being really fucking amazing, those two are going to end up switching places in [...]
I love Christmas music, and I love mashups, so here are THREE full albums of Christmas mashups. Use the bittorrent links if you can, but the mirrored links for zip files available seem to still work. Santastic ( bittorrent ) Santastic II: Clausome ( bittorrent ) Santastic 3: In 3-D ( bittorrent ) 6 DAYS OMGZ.
...so two Christmas songs and a new song for you! --- I love the Raveonettes, and I hate that the new album has no US release date, because " Dead Sound " is pretty damn good. Alas... --- And two Christmas songs.... Nellie McKay - "Christmas Dirge" (now with more PETA propaganda!) The Polyphonic Spree - "Carol of the Bells" (now with added weirdness!)

HELLO I AM threv TIME FOR RHAPSODICAL The past few months have been a watershed for the music industry. Supply has greatly outpaced demand for quality music, as established artists like Radiohead, Nine Inch Nails, and others have released records for (mostly) free and sounding what may be the death knell for traditional music distribution. The rise of netlabels has played no small part in this development. Incredible artists who previously had no channels within which [...]
