Announcing: Five Songs

In my never-ending quest to lazily find new music by having other folks suggest it to me, I’m starting a thing that will hopefully catch on called “Five Songs”.

It’s very simple. You send me (via Twitter, Facebook, the comments on this post, which I’m turning on, or the “Contact” link under “Elsewhere” on the right) a list of five songs to listen to. They can be songs you think I’d like, songs you like, or awful crap you want me to endure. You can even tell me to listen to things you’re pretty sure I already know and just think I should listen to again. I will listen to them and let you know what I think! Make sure it’s something I can find on YouTube or Spotify.

Five songs. Not albums, songs, unless it’s a single album with five songs on it. They don’t even have to be new songs. I will listen to them and make a post about each set.

In case you’re curious, here are the results from the last time I did something like this.

So come on, help out! It’s like you have a hotline direct to my ears!

    Hey Rosetta – Yer Spring (Album: Seeds).
