Have you ever used the Genius feature in iTunes? I love it. I have managed to accumulate a library of over 7,000 songs. Some I got from my daughter's collection of music. Hey, I paid for the damn CDs to begin with, so I figure I could download them to my computer with my conscious still intact. But, I also have music from friends who have interesting CDs, but I have such twinges of guilt doing so. I buy lots of CDs and always download and pay, but if a friend has a CD, sometimes I download it to mine. I would never run out and buy the Black Eyed Peas (or whatever), but some of their music is good. I feel guilty even admitting that and it will probably cause the Powers That Be to come after me. But maybe not.
Teddy Bear's music runs toward the indie side of things. The Yeah, Yeah Yeahs (who are no, no, no in my book), Aubrey Debauchery, The Avett Brothers, The Killers. I have learned to love Muse because of her and My Chemical Romance is another good one. Oh my gosh, I almost forgot Death Cab for Cutie.
I love Genius because if you click on a song that you like, it goes through your library of music, figures out what songs are like that and creates a playlist. You see, the Powers That Be should be happpy because I now love all kinds of music I would never really discover on my own but now I hunt down their CDs to buy. Teddy Bear had some music that her boyfriend liked from the band, H.I.M, and now I have purchased quite a few of their albums and the same goes for Linkin' Park. I also "discovered" Michael Buble and Steve Tyrell.
Yes, I love technology~! Always and forever, always and forever.
