Music Downloads

I've recently discovered that you can buy MP3 downloads off Amazon. I found this out when I was browsing on there, as I normally do, and found a tab called 'MP3 Music'. I checked it out and guess what? I ended up buying 3 songs from there. If you really want a song without having to buy the CD to get that song, I'd recommend this if you want the music. And guess what? It's really cheap too. Only $.99 for a song! How cool is that? And if this isn't your thing, you can also do what I do: check the local libraries for a CD with the song you want, check it out, download it onto your music device and take the CD back. Done that before, works like a charm. That's how I managed to get Dusty Springfield onto my MP3, along with David Bowie, Celine Dion, Green Day before my sister bought the album the song is on, Ke$ha, a little Lady Gaga before I bought a CD of her. Was giving Lady Gaga's music a test run to see if I liked her stuff, and I do.

But here are some downloads I'm thinking of buying myself for my birthday, lmao!!! Not all of them at once, but maybe a few here and there.

If it's in Italics, that's the name of the album it comes from. Bold means the name of the artist

-Try Again: I Care 4 U

Phil Collins
-You'll Be in My Heart: Tarzan Soundtrack. Like I don't have enough of these lying around, lol.

Natasha Bedingfield
-Pocketful of Sunshine: Pocketful of Sunshine

-Hey Ya!. This is the only rap song I do like. Speakerboxx/The Love Below

-American Boy: Shine

Robbie Robertson
-Shine Your Light: Ladder 49 Soundtrack

The Dandy Warhols
-Bohemian Like You: Thirteen Tales from Urban Bohemia

-Turn up the Radio: Sign In Please

Ones I already have

The Rolling Stones

-Watched an episode of Law and Order: UK yesterday on the Internet, titled "Alesha". Where she went to the gynecologist and she suspected he assaulted her sexually. It made me feel sad for her, poor girl. All she did was go to the doctor and he took advantage of her, poor girl :(
-And to think I have my cool, awesome dad to thank for introducing this show to me, which I never thought would actually happen, considering my dad only watched certain British shows. He watched it out boredom one night after watching Primeval, which I still watch. And if he's looking down on me from heaven, I have one thing to say: "Hey dad, thanks 4 getting me hooked on sci-fi TV, :D"

-You just can't help but like her. And besides, she lives on through her two wonderful sons. William got married to one of the most beautiful and nicest women in the world, Kate Middleton.
