I really have to make a concerted effort not to listen to this track during the other eleven months of the year. Come December 1st I am on it, and by the time New Years finally rolls around I have usually played it ad nauseam for a month straight. It’s just that good.

  2. […] New Music Friday: Forty-Eighth Edition Welcome back my friends, to the show that never ends – it’s time for another edition of New Music Friday. Ready for some more free music for your Zune? okletsgo” First up this week, GenerationZune posts three tracks from Eux Autres, calling the band “infectious, energetic, lighthearted and listenable” Check 3Hive for 4 tracks by Dead Meadow – “blissful rock and roll melancholy” Continuing in the tradition of awesome mashups that are awesome*: Stereogum posts Ol Dirty Bastard vs White Williams. MOKB posts a couple of Zookeeper tracks, one of which is a new track. Like the scissor sisters? Check this remix at Arjan Writes. Onward – go ahead and pick up 5 tracks from Spinner You Ain’t No Picasso has a Menomena remix. I like Menomena. And remixes. And Picasso. Rockinsider has a bunch of tracks which Jax considers to be the best LA albums of 2007. So Marvin Gaye is a Zuneinsider all-time favorite – Aquarium Drunkard has an MP3. Soul-sides has a 50 Cent remix sent to him by a reader. Check new addition to the New Music Friday collection – Zunetracks. This week, check it for a free Smashing Pumpkins track. And last but certainly not not awesome – fans of dance music should head over to MusicforRobots for this My Cousin Roy track. *Hey, the internet, I actually have a quick question – in the expression “awesome mashups that are awesome,” should I use *that* or *which* – awesome mashups which are awesome? Let me know in the comments! Ok, enjoy the free music and have a great weekend everybody!  |  Friday, December 07, 2007 6:33 PM  |  6 Comments Tags: new music, Friday, that vs. which  […]

  3. I don’t know this one…a definite download, as I love Marvin Gaye (who doesn’t?)…and Christmas songs can be so cheesy! Although it’s great that artists I like (e.g. Aimee Mann, Sufjan Stevens) are now starting to get in on the act. Thanks for this :o)

  4. often i wondered about the symbolism behind the meaning of ‘purple’ snowflakes. I hear that when we do finally get around to seeing them, that is while the Planets are orbiting, when with our now de-funked planet (PLUTO) is closest to the Earth, ‘purple snowflakes’ fall from it~ down to us as a reminder that he is still a planet.
