You know, I get so, so, SO many requests for me to listen to this or that new artist. I read the emails and generally set them aside for later use on a slow news day (I seriously need someone to handle these new artists for me). Sometimes I get back to them and sometimes I don't. It's not that I don't care, it's just that there's honestly not enough time in the day, you know? It usually helps if they have some sort of hook to reel me in....like cash or chocolate or a personalized message (see yesterday's Rodney Atkins post and the previous Gloriana post), but most emails are the straightforward, "this is THE next big thing," or "please, please, please, I beg of you, PLEASE take a look at my artist, they are so good you just wont believe you've lived this long without them."
Well I may not always listen to a new artist based on the pleas of a PR agent or manager, but when I see someone's name over and over and over all over the place I generally finally get the hint and take notice.
So with that said when I got the standard email yesterday asking me to please check out Jaron and the Long Road to Love (now that's a mouthful). I did as I always do and just set it aside for later. Then it was like every other tweet on Twitter this morning was a hint to check out this video. Not to me personally, but just a general plea to the Twitterverse. I listened to Twitter and watched the video.
Too funny. Who knew that a song called Pray For You was actually a funny revenge song?
