sharing music -- my itunes playlist

*glitter* here's my itunes playlist *sparkles* I'm rather proud of it! ((I know it isn't MASSIVE like some people's but hey, at least 90% of it was purchased by my penurious self)) If there is any music you'd like to try out, just let me know and I'll share. ;-) and judging by my taste, if there's anything you think I'd like that I don't have, please give me recommendations!

in other news, my email service that I otherwise adore has decided to stop allowing LJ to send me stuff (it doesn't even show up in my spambox, and I have LJ on my safelist). *grrrr* I'll have to find another place to send my notifications... gmail stacks them stupidly so that won't work. Unless LJ's just being an ass -- I can't tell where the problem is coming from. Anyway, if you've left me a question (or a comment you thought I'd respond to) and I haven't answered, that's why :-(

also: ow, cramps. :-( *whimper*

DUUUUUUUUDE! you should have a listen to 1. BJORK! 2. Kate Havnevik (like bjork and nora jones collided!) and 3. Imogen Heap (nominated for best new artist, but won't win because there aren't enough people that know about her. Corrine Bailey Rae will win. Oh! She's good too! AANND KT Tunstall!)
belenen ══╣musical╠══
hmmm, it's weird but I don't like Bjork, her voice/singing style annoys me even though I love the music style. But I'll check out Kate Havnevik and Imogen Heap! got anything you wanna upload for me to try out?
hottergirl01 ══╣╠══
yeah...plenty. but explain to me how to do it!!

belenen ══╣queen of code╠══
just go to and find the mp3 file on your comp and click upload! then send me the link. ;-)

I second the Imogen Heap suggestion. You may also enjoy Regina Spektor. Tori Amos is a goddess. Evanescence's latest album is also very good. My personal favorite is "Good Enough."
belenen ══╣musical╠══
ohh, Regina, yes, I like her but I don't own any songs by her yet. Got any you want to share? Tori, haven't listened enough to decide how I feel. Evanescence -- I LOVE their sound but for some reason their music depresses me, very frustrating. But I haven't heard the latest album, maybe it wouldn't have the same effect. I wanna check it out *makes mental note*
shadowlily ══╣╠══
i second bjork! you might like joanna newsom, and possibly dead can dance.

it's weird but I don't like Bjork, her voice/singing style annoys me even though I love the music style. I'll check out the other two! ;-)
[music] al;sfj cute!
notashamed ══╣[music] al;sfj cute!╠══

And I don't know how you feel about downloading music, but if you want to sample Imogen first: you can go here
notashamed ══╣╠══
Also? I'm pretty sure I still owe you a CD. so I should make a mix for you and send it. :D
belenen ══╣adoring╠══
lodestar -- adrienne liesching
belenen ══╣lodestar -- adrienne liesching╠══
OMG yay!!!!!! And I have all the Frou Frou songs but I'm totally nabbing the others. ;-)

about downloading: my feeling is it's fine to share with friends, but if I really like the music I buy the CD, partly because I like having it, partly to support the artist (though I often buy used, so that doesn't really help them at all, heh). I don't like downloading via programs, but I can't really explain why. I guess because that seems less... connected? *shrug* But yeah, I've no problem with sharing with friends, taking or giving.

Re: <3
OMG you're amazing, thank you! *downloads*
Fallen Angel
melissad ══╣Fallen Angel╠══
I like most the music on your list, so I'll make a couple suggestions for ya. Just the band names though, I'm horrible with song titles.

1. Flyleaf
2. The Decemberists
3. Nightwish
shadowlily ══╣╠══
the decemberists! yes.
belenen ══╣musical╠══
My husband loves Nightwish but they don't really do anything for me. I'll definitely check out the others though!
amethyst_venus ══╣╠══
I love Esthero! I was introduced to her a little while ago, and more needed to be said!

You might like Teagan and Sara.

Otherwise, I haven't heard of a lot of the artists on your playlist. Blame me living in a different country :P
woah_the_kettle ══╣╠══

To Bel:
Le Tigre (if you have never heard them, and not sure you will like them, download the song "deceptacon" and you will have your answer for sure. Usually its either you love them or you don't, and whenever I see that someone doesn't have them I have to mention them because they have always been my favorite band)
Rilo Kiley
Azure Ray
Nick Drake
(I am pretty sure you'll like those three, based on your playlist)
I also feel like I have to mention a series of disks called the "Canyon Trilogy". Its Native American flute music, and its extremely beautiful, and I know you will appreciate it.

On a side note, its interesting to represent the other side of the spectrum, because while you have paid for all of your music, I have pirated all of my music, and in fact, I happen to know that Tyler has pirated probably 2 terabytes of music. Which is a LOT of music. And you know what? I feel really lucky and awesome that I get to have access to his collection when he moves in with me. So I don't particularly care that he is a bad, bad boy.
canine : intense
sabr ══╣canine : intense╠══
Oh oh oh! Since you like Canyon Trilogy, you should really like the Wolves soundtrack, I think. I love it so much!
belenen ══╣shock╠══
TERABYTES??? HOLY CRAP :-O I can't even imagine that much!!!

I haven't paid for all of it, some is shared from friends ;-) I buy because I like to have the actual CD (in high school I decorated one wall with CD art), and because I like to support the artists -- though I tend to buy my music used and that doesn't actually help them, heh. It's the collector in me, I think. ;-)

and OMG I would LOVE that Native American flute music. I have an awesome station on Pandora that is all kinds of spiritual-type music, mostly Native American. I looooove it. I used to have a tape called "Spirit of Sedona" (which, ironically enough, I stole from the store! I was a little shoplifter in my elementary-school years, heh) that I wore OUT. I miss it, and the little tape deck I slept with every night. ;-)

I'll check out the others too, thanks! :D feel free to upload me a few songs to get me started XD

Teagan and Sara, I've heard of them but haven't really given them a listen -- have any to share?

and heh, most of my fav artists aren't well known (few of them get radio play), so I'm not surprised that you don't know them! ;-)

*feels happy that music I sent you is on there*

I meant to say, if there were any songs you particularly liked then I can email you a few others by the same artist if you wanted to try them out. I made sure to only include ones where I had albums by the artist.
