Today marks the third birthday of Mainstream Isn’t So Bad. That’s right, three years ago on this day I put up “El Posto Numero Uno,” never imagining that three years later I’d be putting up “MISB Turns Three!” Heck, I didn’t imagine that MISB would last to its three month anniversary, never mind three years.
Since it’s birth, MISB has been all about sharing music that I find in my musical journey through life with all of you. And while I don’t delude myself with any grandiose dreams of mass influence, hopefully along the way I’ve turned you on to some bands and albums that you’ve then gone out and supported, whether through purchasing the albums, catching a concert, or sporting a t-shirt.
That being said, in exchange for the fine list of fifteen birthday songs below, I ask you to take a minute while you wait for them to download, leave a comment (or e-mail me: teachbreed [at] yahoo.com), and let me know what song(s)/artist(s)/album(s) you’ve been turned on to via MISB.
And while I can't promise I'll be here in another three years, I'm going to give it a go. Hope you keep on visiting...
