Cheap Tunes Tuesday

Today’s band are one of only four acts of all time to hold the number one spot in the Billboard 100 for at least 50 weeks cumulatively. That puts them with Elvis, The Beatles and Mariah—very good company. It makes sense though, as what they did from a vocal/harmony standpoint was so unique. Although they're still making music today, there's no question that going back to their original tunes is the way to go—especially for a fiver.

Its Blitz_yeah_yeah_yeahs

Cheap Tunes Tuesday

The Yeah Yeah Yeah's It's Blitz album crosses so many genres, if you’re a fan of rock, punk, alt rock, pop or anything electronic, I think you’ll enjoy this.

Simon and Garfunkel

Cheap Tunes Tuesday

Simon and Garfunkel seem to be one of those bands where you remember where you were and what you were doing when you first heard them. Tracks like “The Sound of Silence” or “Mrs. Robinson” are so iconic even to this day; it’s hard to not be aware of the classic duo. Their sound evolved a bit over the years to shed the folk rock label, but there is no denying their place in music history because of their original stuff. Well worth $5 bucks for sure, but also worth your hour today.

Second Helping

Cheap Tunes Tuesday

Their mix of southern rock and blues is often imitated but never duplicated. When a Skynyrd tune comes on the radio, you have no doubt who it is. When "Second Helping" hit the charts so soon after their first album, critics were looking for a reason to shoot it down—but they couldn't. “Sweet Home Alabama” helped drive this album to #12 on the charts and the band to a place in music history.

Harry Nilsson

Cheap Tunes Tuesday

If last week’s post was capitalizing on the mainstream of the moment, today’s blog and artist would be nearly the polar opposite. We’ve all probably heard some of the songs made by today’s featured act, but he’s certainly not a household name. The track “Coconut” is one I think just about everyone knows, but don't be fooled by the novelty of it—the whole album is great blend of original production and writing.
