Emusic is no itunes. Not even close.  Recently I downloaded 48 free songs.  35 of them came from emusic thanks to ticketmaster’s giveaway while the rest was from itunes.  I must add that emusic pretty much sucks.  I should have been a been to choose 35 songs in about 2 minutes.  Instead it turned into a 2 hour long hunt for some descent music.  No Madonna, Lady Gaga, Bat for Lashes, Weezer, REM, I started to get desperate after a while.  I did end up with good songs but it took far too long. 

Here’s what I got:

Ozzy Osbourne  Tribute album

Little Boots Stuck on Repeat and Meddle

Lady Hawke  Paris is Burning

Ladytron   Ghosts, Runaway, Blue Jeans (Temple of Jay Remix)

Adele   Chasing Pavements and Hometown Glory

Santigold   LES Artistes and Lights Out

Creature     Who’s hot, whos not and Pop Culture

Roisin Murphy   You know me better (Body Jack Remix)

Kim Carnes     Bette Davis Eyes

Coolio    Gangsta’s Paradise

Bush       Little Things

Savage Garden     To the Moon and Back

Nik Kershaw     Wouldn’t it be good

Human League    Love me Madly?  and Sin City

Ever use emusic?  What do you think?

AOL’s leaving the Lady for Boots?

April 28, 2009 at 5:02 pm (music) (, , , , , , , )

For the past few months it seem like AOL’s Aim Zone would talk about Lady Gaga almost every day.  But today they wrote

Have You Heard
Of Little Boots?

Move Over Lady Gaga, There’s a New
Bombshell on the Scene: Meet Her

Does this mean AOL’s going to leave Lady Gaga for Little Boots?  Hmm…One electro-pop female for another?  Well both can play piano/keyboard well.  Both are good singers, although I think Lady Gaga is better.  And Lady Gaga seems to have more of a range in the types of music she can do.  What do you think?
