I’m Pretty Sure I Have Approval Now…
Now that I’m pretty sure I’m clear to post Christmas music, I’m going to totally get carried away with my newfound power. Strange, fun, wicked, and beautiful songs are coming your way thanks to Apple’s impulse buy, Lala.com, and my own personal taste for Christmas oddities.
This one is not going to be to everyone’s taste, but if you’re one of those people who ever sat and wondered what it would sound like if Judas Priest ever took a shot at “Oh Come, Oh Come Emanuel,” here’s a taste of Rob Halford’s latest, Winter Songs. You’ll never have to wonder again.
If you were curious, I’m really enjoying Lala.com. For those of you new to the site, the deal is that it lets you listen one time to the full song and then lets you listen to 30 second snippets. You can purchase ten cent “web songs” or you can download music for .89. Similar to the original MP3.com (with one very significant difference, though, which saved it from being sued out of existence), it also lets you upload your own music and stream it through their online interface. Nifty service, fair pricing, and fun. That said, I had heard that it was bleeding money and didn’t see any turn-around soon. Apple probably got it fairly cheap.
I wonder what they’ll will do with it?
