"I'm so 3008 / You so 2000 and late / I got that boom, boom, boom / That future boom, boom, boom" -Black Eyed Peas, "Boom Boom Pow" Ugh. How many times can you say "boom"? And 3008 is a little too far in the future to be believable.

Herbie Hancock, 69 Eric Clapton, 64 Tina Turner, 69 Tina definitely seems much younger than her 69 years!

Kukla--yes, pertinent and funny! I had the same reaction as the video host, although I have to admit that "I Gotta Feeling" does have an annoyingly catchy melody. Now I can't get it out of my head. Johnny--so, the mystery continues. Why do people love this album?!

Love the interview, Hugo! What strikes me is how genuine CM seems--he answers your questions in a very thoughtful manner.

Awesome review in just a few lines. Almost feel like I was there!

Nathan- thanks for the kind words! I love your description of the music as "organic" and "earthen." Since throat singing is so heavily influenced by the earth and the environment, you picked the perfect way to describe it. Stas, Ben, and Amy- thanks for the awesome suggestions! I'll definitely check out "Deep in the Heart of Tuva" and "Genghis Blues." Keep the suggestions coming! Hugo - ah, so that's why you're so good at throat singing! I'm impressed. ;)

I've heard "Say Say Say" countless times, but I hadn't actually seen the music video. I decided to post the vid since 1) "Say Say Say" isn't as well known as "The Girl Is Mine," 2) the vid features cameos by Linda McCartney, La Toya Jackson, and Mr. T (interesting), and 3) it's plain fun to watch.

I think Sarah Jarosz is a revelation. I can hardly believe she's just 18--her music is amazing, and she knocks her cover of the Decemberists' "Shankill Butchers" out of the park. Great post!

Thanks for turning me on to "Birth of a Fish"! I was so intrigued by your description that I had to look up the lyrics. What a surprise--metaphysics cloaked in hip-hop! Reminded me of Plato's cave allegory. Interesting food for thought and wicked beats to boot!

It's cool how Kristin Hersh's music impacted your perspective on the gentleman you encountered. Your story reminds me anew of how music characterizes different experiences in our lives...thanks for sharing!

Dent May! Indie rocker with mean ukulele skills? There's no question.
