Hi all,


I got 5 free downloads from the iTunes music store. My musical horizons are kinda limited, and I'm stumped at how to use them. So I would love if everybody could throw out their 5 picks for songs I should get.

Franz Ferdinand - Outsiders

Coheed & Cambria - Welcome Home / Rage Against the Machine - Killing in the Name

Fort Minor - Remember the Name / Immortal Technique - The Poverty of Philosophy

Radiohead - Idioteque / Pendulum - Sounds of Life

Massive Attack - Group Four


A sample of a bit of everything. Similar things are grouped together in terms of genre/musical style.

I dunno if all of these will even be there, but check em out:


God is an Astronaut - Suicide by Star


Bell X1 - My First Born for a Song


Feist - The Limit to Your Love


Pavement - Newark Wilder


Sondre Lerche - No One's Gonna Come



Almost all of those songs are universally unjoyable, unless you don't like instrumental bands (God is an Astronaut) or Feist's singing style. The Sondre Lerche track is beyond fabulous.

All Emipires Fall - The Waking Eyes

Spitting Venom - Modest Mouse

Intravenous Agnostic - Manic Street Preachers

Skin of my Yellow Country Teeth - Clap Your Hands Say Yeah

Wake Up - Arcade Fire


This list is pretty indie but are some my fave plays in itunes when I'm not listening to records.

It's not music to just sit down and listen to. However I myself am able to do this as I play in a post-rock band so I really enjoy it.


But for the average person it's more of just mood music to have going when your driving, browsing the internet, eating. It sets the mood for anything. Happy or sad.
