WHAT IS #MUSICMONDAY?

Every week, I post a lot of links to free music you can download. Why? Why the hell not? I’m not hosting the links, I didn’t upload ‘em, I have no legal liability and I’m helping promote the artists. Essentially, I’m a g******ed hero! Enjoy!

Sometimes I rant about musical stuff — that goes at the end. The music is divided into three categories …

I’VE HEARD IT AND IT’S WORTH A LISTEN

  • Super R&B Hits Vol. 2 [LINK]
  • Glee Cast, “I Fell Pretty/UnPretty” (Rachel/Quinn Duet) [LINK]
  • Glee “A Night Of Neglect” I-Tunes Rip Songs [LINK]
  • Only since this writer got to see it live: VIDEO (no download, but you can always audio capture) of Prince and Alicia Keys performing “How Come You Don’t Call Me Anymore” at the Forum in Inglewood, CA. It’s okay to be jealous. It’s natural.
