More Free Music

There's an album out there now you must pick up, I say this because it's going to cost you a whole $0.00 to download it (legally) online.

The album is the new one by Girl Talk, which is basically a one-man band/dj named Gregg Gillis. He mashes up songs that usually have no place being the same radio station, let alone in the same song, and makes brilliant dance music from it. Go to this website, and click on the icon toward the top for "Feed the Animals." It'll ask you how much you want to pay , go ahead and enter "$0.00," it'll give you a quick multiple choice question of why you chose that, and then you are free to download away.

The first song alone has "Gimmie Some Lovin'", "Let My Love Open the Door," "We're Not Gonna Take It," "Hunger Strike" (by Temple of the Dog), "Nothing Compares 2 U," and a couple of rap songs all jammed together seamlessly in a great track. And that's only the beginning, I've read that there is an estimate of about 300 samples used throughout the entire album.

This was only released last week online, but it's already ranking up there as one of my favorite albums of the year. It starts to become a fun contest of trying to figure out what songs are all jumbled together, while marvelling at how music that is usually considered to be on far ends of the musical spectrum work well together. Is that Nine Inch Nails' "Wish" backing up Kelly Clarkson's "Since U Been Gone"? Why, yes it is!
Of course, there's some questionable language from the rap samples, so you if you have little ones to worry about, you might not want them listening to all of it. But I guarantee you'll enjoy this cd, you'll be sure to get your money's worth anyways!
