Amazon MP3 Recommendations

December 16th, 2008

I logged in to Amazon last night and, underneath the book, CD and DVD recommendations, there was a new list of MP3 downloads; all individual tracks. Of course the list is supposed to be based on my music purchases but I haven’t brought any music off Amazon for months and it certainly wasn’t by any band from this list, so I was well happy to see the list dominated by:

  • The Clash
  • Portishead
  • MC5
  • New York Dolls
  • Iggy & The Stooges
  • Pink Floyd

They even have a WHY? button to check the reason for the recommendation… so when I found a Fleetwood Mac track in there because I’d purchased a Black Sabbath CD (That must be YEARS ago) I nearly choked!

Be Sociable, Share!

    Spooky. I just DL’d a song from the Amazon store for the first time 24 hours previous to your post.

    Concierto de Aranjuez by Jim Hall, Paul Desmond (I think) and Chet Baker. 19:16 of sheer bliss.

    Possibly the best 79p I have ever spent!

    Bulbboy: Aha! Rodrigo’s Concierto de Orange Juice ;) Love that track, I might have to spend a whole 79 new pence myself to give my ears a treat :)

    It always reminds me of a spaghetti western, that track, but I could be wrong…
