Let’s call it New Music Monday, even though I bought the CD yesterday and today is, er, Sunday. Yes, I bought a CD, with a case and art on the CD itself and everything. The CD is Final Straw by Snow Patrol, and so far, I’m enjoying it. You may remember my brief fascination with Snow Patrol’s first single from this album, “Run.” Oddly, the impetus to buy this album came from a mistaken idea that Jet’s song, “Look What You’ve Done,” was a Snow Patrol song. In the course of looking for it, I listened to all the little iTunes previews from Final Straw, and $10 spent at Borders later, I own Final Straw and also, thanks to iTunes, my very own legal copy of “Look What You’ve Done.”
And the debate now is whether to break down and buy Hot Fuss by The Killers or just hope that this phase of interest passes.
