So a few weeks ago I found this new singer (new to me, I’m pretty sure he’s been singing for a long time. Long enough not to be new.) Anyway, I bought his album from iTunes, but lo and behold! He’s got a whole bunch of songs up on Youtube! Songs he’s covered that you can’t even buy. BOO! BOO, Christopher Dallman, for making me love your version of When You Were Mine (wow, that takes me back to the good old days of long, hot summers listening to Prince and daydreaming about stuff my mother didn’t want me to think about!) but not making it available to buyyyyy!
And how about this one?
Anyway, you know how it goes. If I love it, I want you to love it, too, I want you to have it. So here’s the deal. Post here with your favoritest summer song memory — the song, the summer, what it meant, what you think of when you hear it!
And I’ll draw a random winner to receive my VERY favorite Christopher Dallman song — Brand New Lover (which sadly, I can’t find on Youtube) — from iTunes! Again, as in the past, you must have iTunes enabled and be a US citizen, as I can’t send to non-US iTunes, and that’s the only way for me to get you the music.
Check him out at his website where you can listen to samples of his other songs. Though, sadly, I can’t seem to find a sample of Brand New Lover.
Maybe on his Myspace page.
At any rate, YOU can win the song and give Christopher’s music a try, just do what I said to do and you could be the random winner!
Happy Summer, everyone!
PS– What the hell. Over My Head (which you CAN hear a sample of, just above!) is also a great song. I’ll give away a copy of that, too. And yes, since this is crossposted at my blog and Dane Hart Discuss, I’ll give away songs at both places.
Brand New Lover and Over My Head will go to two diff lucky winners at EACH blog, meaning I’m giving away four songs, total. US residents, must have iTunes. (I’m sorry, non-US’ers, but I’ve got a Jason Manns’ CD on the way that I’ll be able to give away internationally.)
PPS– bonus points if you can name the reference in the title of this blog
