Music to my ears. You know, that's one of the strangest phrases, when you think about it. If it's music, well....duh. Music to my nose doesn't have the same poetic ring and makes a whole lot less sense, I can tell you that.
One of my favorite Christmas gifts this year was an iTunes gift card. I spent a portion of it filling in gaps in collections and buying one-offs that I just had to have (...like Skynyrd's Sweet Home Alabama so I could make a ring tone out of it...). I bled the thing down to $10 and decided I wanted to buy an entire album by someone that I wasn't familiar with. It's too easy (and a mark of aging) to only listen to the stuff you know.
I stumbled on to The Fray and mashed down on the BUY NOW button. They sound like Lifehouse had Lifehouse been old enough to remember Hootie and the Blowfish. I dig'm.
You can watch the video of the title cut of their cd, "How to Save a Life" by clicking here and launching the media player. It'll be music to your eyes.
Anyone else get some music for Christmas? What are you listening to right now, as you read this?
