What sort of stuff do you like? We have millions at work 'cos eveyone shares their iTunes, its great because you get to listen to things you might not choose otherwise.

I've never downloaded any music - ever

Swedes2Turnips0 · 04/11/2009 13:52

I've never downloaded music. I still buy LPs CDs.

moodlum · 04/11/2009 13:54

The last two tracks I downloaded were Rhythms del Mundo with the Killers and the Foo Fighters Big Me. I'm pretty open to listening to anything but I don't know what I don't know, iykwim?

but swedes - you're so ahead of the game in terms of the school run dress, I can't believe you still buy LPs CDs

Ooh, the foos love them. Just looking though for some suggestions - what about The Last Shadow Puppets, Kings of Leon, Aberfeldy, Muse, Glasvegas, Editors, Muse or Cheryl Cole .

I am 45. I don't do techy. I have to call DP to put on a DVD for the little ones - if as I can't be bothered to learn which buttons to press on the remote. They just accept that if Daddy is out/at work there are no DVDs. DP tries from time to time (completely without irritation) to give me lessons but I just glaze over and find myself thinking about Xena the Warrior Princess's coned bras.

I also can't do predictive text. I haven't sent a text since I changed phones a few months ago.

Aww swedes don't get sad. I didn't know that Pearl Lowe did Peacocks, so we all have our areas of expertise .

Shazbean thank you - I'm going to spend the next half hour on itunes dipping my toe into new music

No, swedes, your specialised subject would be entitled High Street Fashion for the School Run during the Noughties. Its a good thing to know a lot about, tbh.

Well to my shame the last song I downloaded and that was this weekend was Sugar baby Love by The Rubettes. Well I loved that song as a kid and had not heard it in ages...

nymphadora · 04/11/2009 14:21

Single of the week on itunes (cant remember what it is but it was free

moodlum · 04/11/2009 14:21

Well done for being honest BGD

Well, technically the last track I downloaded was Green Day doing the simpsons theme, cause I wanted to make it into my ringtone ... but if you're looking for a music recommendation, how about The Gaslight Anthem? Old White Lincoln is probably their best, or '59 sound. You can hear what they sound like on their myspace

LyraSilvertongue · 15/11/2009 21:27

Ladyhawke - My Delirium
Fury - Muse (I had a rubbish copy so downloaded officially from iTunes)

strig · 15/11/2009 22:16

Not so new - but have just downloaded "Moi je joue" by Brigitte Bardot which is on the Miss Dior advert - it makes me feel so happy and makes me want to dance around wearing capri pants!

bluejeans · 15/11/2009 22:31

I downloaded Stereophonics - Dakota as I voted for it on XFMs song of the decade then realsied I didn't have it

BigGitDad I love Sugar Baby Love too - it's in a film isn't it?...Muriel's Wedding maybe?

heartofgold · 15/11/2009 22:33

last one was an ancient michelle shocked one. last recent one was blitzen trapper (who are officially my New Favourite Band).

bluejeans · 16/11/2009 08:12

Heartofgold - Anchorage?

heartofgold · 16/11/2009 08:49

even older than that bluejeans! the texas campfire tapes. (btw i am clearly an oddity as i still buy/download full albums rather than individual tracks)

bluejeans · 16/11/2009 09:17

Ah - only ever heard Anchorage and I love it. Actually not true as I seem to remember she had a follow up hit single but can't rememeber what it was. Reminds me of my uni days!
