This might be old news to some, but it’s news to me… and the more people blog about it, the better~ I just read over at Marit’s MySpace that her 2nd studio album as a solo is almost done and that it will be called “The Chase”. The first single is already up on her profile, and it’s called “If a Song Could Get Me You“.

I love her music! So head over there and give it a listen if you haven’t heard her music~ Such a fusion of magical sounding pop with a folk countrish vibe. She’s got an innocent sweet soudning voice that mixes well~~ xD And you know, her last album (her solo debut, “Under the Surface”) was great… and even too short an album! Whenever I put it on my disc player, I have to repeat it at least 3 times. xD

Anyway~~~ to top it all off, Marit has also posted 3 home-made video versions of the song… one on the train, the other on a green grocery store, and one last walking through escalators in a subway station.

It is almost a month… >almost< since the last music post. Since then, my iPod is in danger of permanently dying… I can’t think of all the Last Played/Play Count data that will be lost, add that to the fact that some backed-up music doesn’t have the correct song information such as year, track number or even album. BUMMER.

ANYWAY! Thanks to Olympics week, I have added a few albums to my collection! Most importantly… Chinese music. I am loving me some Bibi Chow music, as well as some Lee-Hom Wang music~~ And apparently many have been enjoying listening to Guan Zhe singing Beijing, Beijing Wo Ai Beijing, making that post with the lyrics the most popular in here. Alongside that post, Beijing Huan Ying Ni and Wo He Ni join the list of most popular posts… O_O

Have you got Beijing Olympic fever yet? I’ve noticed many are searching for “Wo he Ni” (aka, You and Me) Lyrics, so I decided to do another Olympic music post because I didn’t see many blogging about this.

Besides from You and Me, there’s the album, The Official Album for Beijing 2008 Olympic Games, which is a double-disc album that includes “Beijing Huan Ying Ni” (aka. Beijing Welcomes You), We Are Ready, and One World One Dream, Beijing Beijing Wo Ai Beijing… among other songs, performed by a broad variety of Chinese (and some other Asian) singers like… Jay Chou, Wei Wei, Joey Yung, Lee Hom Wang *dokidoki*, Jackie Chan, Coco Lee, Nicholas Tse and Andy Lau just to name a few~~~

Of course, the double-disc is filled with ‘patriotic’ and very Chinese-feeling songs, which is great because the Beijing Olympics are being held in China, damn it! LOL’ So what’s the need to create a mediocre ‘western’ version?? Yes, on my search for the Beijing Olympic songs, I came upon The Olympics Album – One World One Dream, which features singers like…. Avril Lavigne singing Keep Holding On (from the average, if not mediocre soundtrack of Eragon), the 2002 (yes, I said 2002) hit Get the Party Started by Pink, Backstreet Boys singing Helpless When She Smiles (what does this have to do with the Olympics??), Westlife singing Us Against the World, Waiting for the World to Change by John Mayer… and other artists.

So… it’s been a month since my last Music post. LOL’ Sadly (or maybe luckily for my credit card??), there hasn’t been huge changes in my iTunes library. xD There’s been just a few additions to it~

First off, Sigur Rós – I was never a HUGE fan of them, but watching the NatGeo concert with Bjork was an incentive. I actually had a lot of fun with that one song they performed together, which had me giggling and tapping my upper legs and desk at the rhythm of their percussion~~ xD

Anyway~ Here’s the list:

Music for Free!?

July 19, 2008 — Leave a comment

Over a year ago, I wrote a lengthy post on downloading stuff with P2P or torrents, as well as legal downloads. In that post I mention I only had 2 legal downloaded albums from iTunes (Canada), and yes… now I probably got a few more (I got two more just a couple of weeks ago), and AM still waiting for Amazon MP3 to go international… is it offering this service already?? I must test for my next digital purchase.

**EDIT**
Amazon MP3 is still NOT international.
