One of my favorite parts of getting Glamour magazine every month is reading their, "Hey, it's okay sections". I always get a little laugh, because normally I'm guilty of at least one the items on their list.
In my December issue I found something I was guilty of that made me realize that I'm not the only one.
It went something like this, " It's okay to get all your latest cool music picks from the Hills".
In recent year television sitcoms have really stepped it up a notch with their song choices. I remember downloading songs heard on Dawson's Creek, Felicity and more recently Grey's Anatomy. I always felt oh so cool looking up the songs and then getting to search for other songs that the artists for that episode had done in order to find new cool songs. Never ever telling people where I found them.
My most recent gem for undiscovered music is my baby sister. She always knows who is up and coming and makes me listen to songs that I've never heard before by people that I've never heard of.
This Christmas my lovely parents gifted me with an IPOD NANO. I'm probably the only person in the free world that didn't have one yet, but I've finally hoped on the bandwagon. So now I need to fill it with great songs for a soundtrack to my life. I'm already begged baby sister to help me pick out songs and just fill it up for me. One of her latest finds that was new to me is:
The Vitamin String Quartet was formed in L.A.in 1999. They took popular songs from all genres and update it by performing it in a string quartet. The outcome in perfection plus it's always fun to listen for a couple of seconds and try and figure out what song remake you are listening to.
Take a listen and pass it on so you can be uber cool as well.
