A Musical Interlude

I was poking around mp3.com tonight. I had discovered a lot of good music there in the past and hoped I might stumble across some new gems. A few years back the major record labels sued them, won, and took them over. I discovered tonight it has become a vast wasteland of mediocrity.

defaultOne artist I discovered there is still around: Paul Thorn. There are two great songs, Where Was I? and Ain't Love Strange, available for downloading and you'll regret it if you don't. He used to have more songs up there but I guess those days are gone. Paul is a great songwriter and I can't say enough good things about him. Musicians like to say they've "paid their dues" but in Paul's case those dues include stepping into the ring with Roberto Duran. As Paul puts it, "He was very nice until the bell sounded."

Anyway, go check out his official web site and enjoy his music. While you do that I'll try to get some sleep.
