I got fifteen dollars to spend on music from the iTunes store. I still don’t know how to work that thing, but I have had a brilliant idea. I will use this as an opportunity to expand my musical horizons!

Everybody gets to tell me one song to purchase. Ideally it will be a song that I will like and that will make me a more rounded connoisseur of music. You only get to suggest one song, though.

Also, only the first fifteen people. Since only two people visit this blog and only one of them can read I don’t think this will be a problem.

    Do you watch Glee? Cause i just bought a couple songs from itunes from the Glee soundtrack. My favorit one and the one I would recomend to you is "dancing with myself". I realize that it might not be that great if you don't watch the show and therefore aren't familiar with the cutie who sings it but it is catchy and I picture you singing along to it with a glass of milk in your hand. Of course the milk is in a fancy glass so you will feel grown up and sophisticated, just make sure the milk leaves a mustache cause then you will be ultra cool singing along to this song!

    oh and ps…music on itunes, for the most part, has gone up in price, so your 15 dollar gift card will not buy you 15 songs. Plus they charge tax so take that into account too. Maybe you should do the top 11 or 12 people.

    Get a They Might Be Giants song. The older songs are generally 99 cents. The newer more popular songs are more. I just bought one for 99 cents.
    AND I just bought one and they DID NOT charge me tax! Happy shopping!

    Elizabeth stole the song I was going to recommend. I will have to think of a new one.

    I think the tax depends on which state you are in. Also, I do watch Glee and I think the kid in the wheelchair is horrible. Such a jerk.

    This isn't going at all like how I thought it would.

    Also, dear sister Elizabeth, the proper form would be: "YOU'RE".
    "YOUR" denotes possession.

    How about "I'm An Ordinary Man" from the My Fair Lady Soundtrack?

    Elizabeth, you only get to suggest one! Also, he is TOTALLY a jerk. This cute Asian girl is into him and pretends to stutter so that she'll be more approachable and they hit it off and then he finds out she doesn't actually stutter and he says, "Never mind, I only liked you when I thought you were broken like me." What an ass.

    This is pretty good, so far:
    "Dancing By Myself" — Elizabeth
    "Fibber Island" — Erin
    "Dashboard" — Andrew
    "I'm An Ordinary Man" — Heather
