What with all the bitching and moaning about the digital age, it’s easy to forget why people use iTunes – it opens a whole new realm of easy to find musical connections and combinations that you would never have considered in the past. For instance, by sheer coincedence of their alphabetical similarities, I discovered that The Animals’ ‘House of the Rising Sun’ and Anna Calvi’s ‘First We Kiss’ sound amazing back-to-back. See, the death of recorded music isn’t so bad now, is it?
