Last Week in Free MP3s 3-29
Rock and Roll is a genre that has spawned some great music and “Scumbag Blues” from the album of the band’s name is no exception. With subtle funk influences the instrumentation of this track is an infectious romp that will make you feel as if you are stealing this free download. And it’s no wonder since this band consists of members from the likes of Led Zepplin, Queens of the Stone Age and The Foo Fighters. It’s the best that these bands have to offer and only adds to their amazing musical legacy.
“Long Goodbye” – The Nadas
Sometimes the free download gods are kind and with “Long Goodbye” they have once again smiled down on the listener searching for solid musicianship, a rocking rhythmic beat and well-sung lyrics. It has a haunting melody that is simultaneously upbeat. This dichotomy produces a listenable track that you will find is well worth your time to download.
“Walk a Mile in My Shoes” – Elvis Presley
As you’re wondering why would anyone give away an Elvis Presley track, download it at the same time before the-powers-that-be realize what they’re doing. This song written by Joe Smith deals with exactly what the song title says and has only been performed by Presley during his live concert tours in the early ‘70s. It indeed is a rare treat for Presley fans.
“Bump in the Road” – Erik Hassle
Overall Hassle’s song is well done, but it’s average and runs about one minute too long than it should. This causes the track to lose its emotional impact which leads to a mediocre listening experience.
“Rocket (Richard X One Zero Remix)” – Goldfrapp
This track goes on six minutes and 58 seconds too long. It’s one long dance track that you will find yourself unable to dance to. Skip it.
“Farewell Mona Lisa” – The Dillinger Escape Plan
Heavy Metal listeners The Dillinger Escape Plan has a treat for you as they scream, shriek and soulfully sing their way through fantastic guitar licks, multilayered rhythmic arrangements and a haunting melody. This bonus track shows off the talent of this band as it hits unexpected notes that jar the listener in a good way.
“Polaroids and Red Wine” – Jaguar Love
If there is ever a countdown of the worst songs of the 21st century then this track should be number one. To wash your mind from this woefully, badly produced track re-listen to “Farewell Mona Lisa.”
