As I noted the other day, I need a new place to work my music jones. Blip.fm is in the process of being murdered by the music industry and my tech pals don’t want to be inundated with music here at Newsome.Org. So what’s a lover of the bayou to do?
Develop a new platform to share some great music, of course. Welcome to GoodSongs.Com!
It’s such a crazy, crazy feeling,
I get weak in the knees,
My poor old head is a reelin’,
As I go deep into the funnel of love.
By combining the Tumblr page I mentioned the other day with a previously dormant top level domain I’ve owned for a decade or so, doing some template work and adding a nice java-based music player, I’ve come up with what I believe is the perfect music recommendation site. If you’re into alt. country, country rock, blues or just good music in general, you’ll like GoodSongs.Com. Give it a listen. Subscribe to the feed. Buy the great, off the beaten path music you’ll hear there. Tell your friends. Send me your music so I can add it to the playlist.
They said, Do you remember when you saw her last,
I said, Her skin is cinnamon, her skin is cinnamon.
Note the music player at the bottom of the page. It won’t play the audio for the videos, but it will play all of the audio posts in a playlist fashion, with music player controls.

There will be quite a bit of integration between GoodSongs.Com and Newsome.Org, but the flow of music will be greater over there. For years, I have received a steady flow of music via email and snail mail from artists looking for exposure here or on Rancho Radio, our popular alt. country radio station. I plan to share a lot of that music at GoodSongs.Com, along with links to Amazon and other stores where you can buy this excellent music. There are a lot of people making the kind of fantastic music that doesn’t get played boring, ad-infested mainstream radio. I plan to be an advocate for that music, but I need your help.
Let’s play this one out, until it explodes,
Into a thousand tiny pieces,
What’s the story universe,
You are melody in numbers.
Send me music. Buy the music I feature. Wear glasses if you need ’em. And all that.
You know the bottle ain’t to blame and I ain’t trying to,
It don’t make you do a thing it just lets you,
When I’m six feet underground, I’ll need a drink or two,
And I’ll sure miss you.
Enjoy. And tell your friends.
