I’ve been a member of BMG Music Club for some time, and while I rarely order anything from them on purpose, I get a lot of interesting music from them by accident, and as a result, over the years I’ve accumulated a number of free music points. I decided to cash some of those in last week, and the box came today.

Below is a sample of why my mp3 shuffle tends to give people whiplash:

Sam’s Town – The Killers
The Crane Wife – The Decemberists
30 #1 Hits – Elvis Presley
White Lilies Island – Natalie Imbruglia
Painted From Memory – Elvis Costello & Burt Bacharach
The Best Of Sessions At West 54th – Various Artists
Lilith Fair – A Celebration Of Women In Music – Various Artists
Redemption’s Son – Joseph Arthur
Perfectly Frank (Remastered) – Tony Bennett

(Part two of the order comes next week, and includes Frank Sinatra, Richard Thompson, Soul Asylum, and Geroge Gershwin.)

And I still have 24 “free” cds to order. So, what should I go looking for? Bear in mind that I’m limited to what http://www.bmgmusic.com/ actually carries, so really outfield stuff is usually not an option.

Open thread: Recommend me some music.
