New Books!

I was checking out the library's new books list online, and chuckled to myself at the diversity of some of the titles we acquired in May:

L'accoglienza : M 3 .W43 1998
Solos for the alto saxophone player: M 268 .S65 1965b
Bothnian rhapsody : M 557.4 .V55 B6 2007
The Beatles : ML 421 .B4 F76 2007
Metallica and philosophy : ML 421 .M48 M47 2007
Early music : ML 457 .M4613 1986
Church music in America, 1620-2000 / ML 2911 .O43 2007
In the mood ML 3505.8 .J4272 Mar. 2007
Why classical music still matters / ML 3800 .K72 2007
Golden bells for church, Sunday school and evangelistic services M 2117 .G65 1923
Palmer's theory of music: MT 7 .P35 1876

In case you didn't know, you can check out this list, too. It's updated by the nice (and very busy) people over at Thomas Cooper Library, so it may not be 100% up-to-date. However, if you want a more current list, come check out the New Book shelf at the Music Library. It's on the 3rd floor, directly in front of you as you come up the stairs!

Have a wonderful fall break!

As always, if you have questions or comments we'd love to hear them.

Remember--if there is an item you'd like to see in the library, be sure to leave us a comment to let us know.

Happy Monday!

I heard this song by Gary Jules on 99.3 WXRY on the way home from work. I find it haunting and beautiful, and it reminds me of a friend who often has a darker take on the world than I do.

Gary Jules Lyrics

Turns out, it's a cover of a song by Tears for Fears, a band from the 1980's. Just for comparison, here's their video of the same song:

[In a weird sort of way, this video reminds me of Falco's 1985 "Rock Me Amadeus." (If you're not familiar, you should definitely check it out!)]

Anyway, I say much improved to Mr. Jules's version. What do you think?
