Apr 8 2008, 20:29 di soundtrekkieI'm cribbing from JoeIsListening and running a head-to-head tournament of songs. However, I'm going with my most played songs to create a true tournament of champions! Ok, maybe not. Some songs just get a lot of play in my dance mix; others are certainly well-worn favorites.
So, check it out here: soundtrekkie's iTunes 64 Tournament
I'll be commenting here and maybe even stealing Joe's difficulty star ratings. But check it out and see if you can predict the ultimate champion!
Violin - Kate Bush
Casimir Pulaski Day - Sufjan Stevens
Winner: Sufjan **
Not my favorite Katie track.
Bad Day - R.E.M.
Rockin' The Suburbs - Ben Folds
Winner: R.E.M. ***
Ben might have won with a different track. My R.E.M. weakness has spoken.
Vodka - Carter Albrecht & Edie Brickell
I Smoke A Lot - K's Choice
Winner: Wojka **
It's the hippie vice bracket! Reckon I prefer drinkin' to smokin'.
Comfort - Michael Penn
Decatur, Or, Round Of Applause For Your Step-Mother! - Sufjan Stevens
Nov 26 2006, 19:37 di pjebsenFor quite a while, one of my favorite sources for legal downloads of bollywood songs and soundtracks of Indian movies in general has been emusic . They charge 25 US cents or less a song (to US customers), and most of their (non-copy protected) MP3 files have better audio quality than iTunes downloads.
emusic features a large variety of Indian soundtrack albums (here's a link to their Indian film section).
Since their selection is vast, I am very much interested in your recommendations. Have you discovered any great Indian film music at emusic?
Here are the albums I've bought so far - they are all great:
Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge
feat. Abhijeet, Asha Bhosle, Kumar Sanu, Lata Mangeshkar, Manpreet Kaur, Pamela Chopra, Udit Narayan
Aa...Aah (A. R. Rahman)
Godfather (A. R. Rahman)
feat. Abhijeet, Alka Yagnik, Kavita Krishnamurthy, Kumar Sanu, Shankar Mahadevan, Udit Narayan
One 2 Ka 4
feat. Alka Yagnik, Clinton, Lata Mangeshkar, Poonam Bhatia…

August - 2006 - Hey David, What's Happening With Your Label?
The Story of Luaka Bop
I get asked fairly often, "What's your record label up to?" I don't know quite how to answer, as I don't have much to do with Luaka Bop these days. A few years ago the label was distributed by Virgin, and, as had happened previously with Warner Bros., Virgin merged with or was absorbed by a larger company — in this case EMI — and there were firings and re-shufflings and our little label was once again out in the cold. Towards the end of the Virgin era I was putting in half days every day at the label — the office was in my house — for no money, and mostly it was a little like pushing a large rock up an ever-growing hill. Artists complained and asked what was going on and I felt bad and didn't have answers. I made shit up. I felt crappy. Read the rest here
