Looking for New Music

Okay, so I’m tragically unhip and I know it.

But, that’s no reason for my music to be sad, old, and uncool. So, I know many of my readers are far more with it than I am and I’m looking to you all for suggestions to give my iPod an injection of cool music mojo. And, ladies, I’m especially counting on you all to help this poor white boy find something to shake it to that will at least impress your kind with my brilliant musical taste. Also, I’ve just gotten bored with the CDs I’ve got in my car and on my shelf and I’ve got a huge cart at Amazon.com that I want to throw some music into before I checkout.  So, something new and hip and, preferably, indie, okay?

Just in case you’re not clear, the Rolling Stones are not what I had in mind.
The poll is live and in the sidebar to the right, so vote!


  1. i can’t vote because i have all four, and it would be like choosing my which is my favorite child.

    though, i’d probably give snow patrol up for adoption if given the opportunity.

  2. Nonsense! Of course you can vote! And, I have to admit, I have Spoon and Snow Patrol, but not Arctic Monkeys and I’ve never heard of Vampire Weekend, but Amazon suggested it.

    Snow Patrol is how I knew my ex-wife was cheating on me, BTW. Have I ever written that story for the blog? I should. I think it was good detective work on my part. Then, to cure my Snow Patrol aversion, I got the CD and listened to it over and over and over until I didn’t mind picturing the pair of them together. And, along the way, I got to like Snow Patrol! So, everybody wins!!

  3. I listen to the “new” music but I always tell folks I should have been a teenager in the late 50’s. Give me the Platters any day!!!

    On my player are Sick Puppies, The Fray and Rascal Flatts. I also like Paolo Nutini and LOVE Landon Pigg. For dance…give me Moby any day!

  4. Well, I’ve just been informed by a coworker that Snow Patrol is, in fact, main stream now. As are Arctic Monkeys. So, in case you weren’t quite sure what I meant by “tragically unhip”, well, now you know.
    Oh, also, he says I should have just titled this post “Shag me, Shag me, Shag me” as appealing to the ladies to pick music to help me get laid was, apparently, too subtle.

    (FYI, he’s the one who donated the Manchester United keyring that appears in my movie ticket stub photographs on Flickr.)
