Since moving the Song of the Day List from an e-mail that got shotgunned out daily to a blind list of thousands to this much more efficient blog system, I’m getting asked, “How do I save the mp3’s?!!”…..OK…here ya go!
On a Mac it couldn’t be easier…simply hold down the ‘Control’ key and click on the mp3 link. This will open a window asking you a whole mess of stuff, but all you’re interested in is the option to “Download Linked FIle”…this will automatically & magically send the file into your computer to wherever you have your downloads sent to. In my case, they drop right onto my desktop and all you need to do to load them into your iTunes folder is double-click on ’em!
If you’re on a PC…get a Mac! I dunno…you can probably ‘right/click’ the link to do the same thing, but seriously……get a Mac!!!
A perfectly crafted pop song doesn’t need any help convincing you it’s good…it just is…and I got that feeling late last night when I couldn’t sleep, turned on Kimmel and saw Anya Marina perform this song…I just felt it…tight production, catchy pop beats and a sexy vocal purred by a girl who, not for nuthin’, is also pretty damned cute. The Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter first popped up on my radar a couple of years back when she web-released a cobbled-together acoustic number titled ‘Lindsay Goes To Rehab’ (a cry for Ms. Lohan to maybe look into getting some help for her ‘addictive’ personality)…and then again when her song, ‘Miss Halfway’, scored a spot on one of the ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ compilation CD’s, a sure sign you’re going places in the Indie Music World…and I was struck by her delicate, jazzy vocals so when I heard her again last night I knew I had to search out ‘Move You’. It’s off of her second album, Slow & Steady Seduction, Phase II…and you can stream more from the album on her MySpace Page
