has anyone here done rhapsody? a friend of mine has been trying to convince me of it's superiority to itunes and while i'm sure it's cooler, "pay a buck, own a song" is pretty damned easy, and i've found a metric ton of cool stuff there i'd never heard of... how's the selection on rhapsody, if anyone knows?

I had used Rhapsody a little bit because certain things are only available to buy on it. It's kind of a pain, having to keep everything segregated. Each song also comes with an embedded "certificate" or something. You can only move it to different devices up to three times before it is no longer allowed. I got around this by burning it as an audio cd (can't remember how difficult or easy it was to do; it was different) and then playing that cd in the computer and loading it into itunes.
If you've got a lot in itunes already, it's not really worth it to switch and I don't appreciate it when things that shouldn't be are program exclusive. Plus, it's always trying to make itself your primary player. It gets annoying.

my st louis friend is all about that service too. apparently it's acceptable at his workplace, so he pulls up a channel and jams for his whole shift.

I've been using Pandora lately, too, for variety. It's neat to find new artists that way, though my "Killers" stations and "Interpol" stations have started overlapping and playing the same stuff. :)

Now accepting music ideas for the wedding (fast & slow songs). Need danceable songs, good slow/couple songs and a father-daughter song. Go!

this is totally unacceptable... what kind of reception are we going for? fun and loose? traditional? themed? you need to give us a lot more info before we starting talking tracklist... first question: number of old people who will find "your" music distasteful and problematic? cuz one or two tracks may be ok, but you can't like roll prince's entire "purple rain" soundtrack and except the octagenarians to enjoy themselves.

that said, i'm partial, for wedding purposes to seal, prince, paul mccartney, the beatles, maybe dabble some U2, a little teddy pendergrass, maybe some al green... if you're willing to go a little more exotic, maybe some nick cave, leonard cohen, johnny cash, annie lennox, maybe slip in a little big mountain... you could even slot in a little ozzy, if you wanted.

Yes, because we all want a little Red Right Hand at the wedding.

well sassy, i actually dedicated "into my arms" by NC&tBS to my wife at our reception, and it's far from their only love ballad. red right hand is a great track, but don't get fooled into thinking that's all they can do. nick cave is a bad bad man. even moreso than john cena.

about to enter the Tool shed! jamming some undertow cuz damned that album was perfect.

good on you for looking it up! i'm telling you seriously maneko, nick is one of my favorite acts in the music business. i love the guy. speaking of, johnny cash covered nick cave's "mercy seat" on american 3... i recommend both versions of the song.
