I was listening to music on iTunes tonight (samples of songs, mostly) and I listened to "You're Beautiful" by James Blunt, which I think is just one of the most amazing songs in a long, long time.
I decided to see what the other songs from his album sounded like and enjoyed them very much, enough that I'll probably end up buying the CD. Because iTunes makes recommendations, I noticed that people who buy his music also buy stuff from Snow Patrol.
So I decided to listen to some Snow Patrol and, while I didn't get as good a vibe from their stuff as I did from James Blunt's, I think they're also pretty good. I might pick up their second CD sometime.
I need to stop going on iTunes...

Snow Patrol are an odd band that seem to change their sound more often than their clothes. As long as you avoid their awkward "We wanna sound like Coldplay!" phase, they're a quality band.

Their second CD isn't that good. Just stick with the first.

I fucking hate James Blunt. Listen to this instead.

James Blunt is the most irritating singer in the history of popular music. His songs are basically greetings cards with a few chords thrown in, but Snow Patrol are OK.

Janus may be right, but I may hate Daniel Powter more.

Let's be honest, Jason. You just like that song because you like being told lies, don't you?

Best song ever?
|Genj - October 08, 2006 (01:09 PM)
No, actually that kind of sucked. This is much better.

I win because my video doesn't have men that are nude save for socks over their dicks.

Man, Now I'm really excited about next week. But I would still much rather see these guys.

My reply is showing up earlier in the topic for some reason.
