Song of the day: Magneto – "Living On The Moon"

December 2, 2010

Here’s Magneto with a song containing a pretty catchy chorus:

Magneto – “Living On The Moon” (2006)

Link

“Living On The Moon” appears on Magneto’s Resistance Is Futile (2006). It also appears on the Shake Yer Popboomerang compilation album which is available on CD* at Bandcamp for the embarrassingly low price of $5. Yes, $5.

Buy Resistance is Futile at CD Baby ($14)
Buy Resistance Is Futile at Popboomerang Records ($15)
Buy Resistance is Futile at Not Lame Recordings ($16)

(*If, for some reason, you don’t like CDs, then you can download that compilation album for $3. But I can’t figure out why you wouldn’t like CDs. They’re CDs.)

Song of the day: Magneto – "Underground"

Here’s “Underground” by Melbourne band Magneto:

“Underground” appears on Resistance Is Futile (2006).

Note to Ben Folds Five fans:

If you’re a big Ben Folds Five fan, you may have seen the title “Underground” and thought “Yay! Peter’s finally playing a Ben Folds Five song!”. I’m sorry to disappoint you that it isn’t Ben Folds Five’s “Underground“. However, to help you get over the crushing disappointment of Magneto, here’s BFF’s* “Underground”:

Or maybe you thought today’s song was “Underground” by heavy-metal dude Thor on his 2004 album, Beastwomen From The Center Of The Earth – which, to me, is a serious contender for BEST ALBUM TITLE EVER.

Incidentally, I just listened to Beastwomen From The Center Of The Earth in its entirety. I don’t recommend it.

(*Unfortunately, I can’t think of a joke involving Ben Folds Five and the initials “BFF” that are now used by tweens everywhere in the Western World. I know there’s a joke in there somewhere, but I just can’t think of one. Sorry about that.)
