Finding New Songs in Your Old Music Collection

| music |

I love when I discover a new song to fall in love with from my existing collection. Last count I have 4,436 songs on itunes. I am sure that there are song on there that I have never even heard or knew existed.

Today I found a special gem, a really surprisingly good song. I first fell in love with Sia when I heard the song “Buttons” on the Ultra 2009 Album. (BTW Great Album , one of the best dance mixes out there. Don’t let the first song fool you, Skip Brittney Spears and you will be in for a treat!) Then I realized that I have heard her before because she had several songs on other cd’s that I owned.

In my ignorance I purchased her CD thinking it was all dance music, when in reality Sia is more easy listening soft rock, chill out music. Who knew? I guess they call it a remix for a reason. Well her CD “Some people have real problems” Is good in its own right but I have to be in the mood to listen to it. I have heard the whole thing but no songs really jumped out at me.

Today while I was studying renal anatomy I came across this song. “Soon we’ll be found.” For some reason it struck a chord with me and I have listened to it three times since then. Sia is an interesting artist, her lyrics are not straight forward. Like " I love you, you love me, you hurt me, I hate you.. etc.." She is truly a poet and there are a lot of hidden meanings in all of her songs. That is why I love listening to her. Remix or Not.

(Last Minute Update) BTW!!! I have not seen the music video. (Until now.) I love how they are doing sign language for the lyrics. See I told you she was interesting! :)
