in the comments on the street is that you're restricted to smaller files, but you get more downloads at youshareit.com. This makes it feasible for me to actually upload stuff for y'all, so it's time for me to share the wealth after weeks (if not months) of mooching off other people's music posts.
ETA: Well, shit. Looks like youshareit doesn't want to play. We're back to yousendit, and I'm changing the links out as fast as I can. Let me know when a link runs out.
Thus, I bring y'all Valentine gifts:
"Cells," The Servant (Sin City trailer). I think most people who wanted it got it, but hey, why not? sweinberg and I hashed out the lyrics here.
"Strangelove," Depeche Mode. I just really like Depeche Mode.
"I'm on Fire," Bruce Springsteen. Brief and quiet and haunting. I don't have it on this computer, but check out Tori Amos' live VH1 cover of this sometime. I'll post it once I get Betsy 2 online.
"I Hate Myself for Loving You," Joan Jett. Just awesome.
"Layla," Eric Clapton (original version). I kind of wish I had a short edit of this song that cut off right when the piano starts, because--I mean, the piano is beautiful and I would keep the full version on hand, but... sometimes you just want guitars.
"Can't Get You Out of My Head," the infamous Garbage/Kylie cover. For those of you who didn't hear about this the first time: be warned, it's very short, and clearly just a tangent during a live concert performance. It's by no means a full, polished track.
"My Happy Ending," Avril Lavigne. Also known as "my secret shame."
"I Would Do Anything for Love (But I Won't Do That)," Meatloaf (or is it Meat Loaf?). So incredibly awesome in its cheesitude.
"Lauren Caught My Eye," The Crash. A SONG WITH MY NAME IN IT OMG.
"Singing in My Sleep," Semisonic. My favorite Semisonic song is "Secret Smile," but, again, it's not on this computer.
And two live Kelly Clarkson performances bootlegged from the first season of American Idol, both really beautiful and a sometimes rough but completely free of melisma (is that the word? The up-and-down Christina/Mariah shrieking). Not what you would expect now from the show:
I had trouble uploading some of these, so if for some reason the link doesn't work or the file isn't complete, let me know and I'll repost it.
The Lost DVDs are going to be pimped. out.
The Phantom of the Opera DVD is not (ONE DISC? FIE ON THE WHORESON VARLETS).
Back to the comedy mines for me, heigh ho. Sigh.
