This song is up in the top songs that I have ever heard - that's saying a lot. It's right up there with Speed of Sound and Dragostea din Tei. The first time I heard this song was a long time ago and when I heard it I fell in love with it. Only a year ago I remembered the name of the song and got it off of iTunes and loved it and loved it.

I am also happy to discover that my friends also love this song. Enough said. Go and listen to this song right now. Please. Listen to the 30-second preview on iTunes and see if you like it.
(I’m also learning how to play this on piano and guitar )

This is a great album by the experimental rock group Thrice. I first heard of them through the iTunes Top Albums list and took a listen. I then went out to buy the Deluxe Edition (must-buy) and listened to the whole CD. It was a great CD.

They have a style that is sort of a mix of hard rock, rock, alternative, which I believe achieves their unique style.
This CD, Vheissu, is one that you should take a listen to.

Last.fm is Sick.
Posted on Thursday, June 22nd, 2006 at 9:48 am.

I just checked out Last.fm, thinking it was an inconvenient site in which you had this Flash player and you picked tracks to play and you had this thing you could show on your site to show which songs you played. I thought that was pretty stupid.

Until I checked it out.

Well, it’s not the same thing. Last.fm is, at best definition, an aggregator for the tracks you play on your iTunes or Windows Media Player (which is not cool.) Using data from the tracks you play from iTunes, it somehow figures out (using math, probably) which songs you might want to encounter on Last.fm radio.

So yeah, Last.fm is pretty much a radio station, but you can customize stuff. I use it most for a thing that automatically gets what I play on iTunes when I’m on my computer and shows it.

Good stuff. Check it out. Last.fm.
