Kitchen Cowboys - Someone, someday

Kitchen Cowboys album art

The "Kitchen Cowboys" are a group of German musicians from Hamburg. They sing "songs of love and songs of pain, everywhere where you can find power sockets" (translation by me). "Someone, someday" is a great, mellow, acoustic song from them, English lyrics are available.

I asked them whether they want to release their songs under a Creative Commons license and they were kind enough to say yes! Thanks a lot guys!

Jonathan Coulton - Betty and Me

Here is one (very funny) song out of many, many more which Jonathan Coulton has made available under a Creative Commons license. "Betty and Me" is a great, hilarious song. Pay close attention to the lyrics ;-)

If you like the songs, please consider buying one of Jonathan's CDs. He also has a nice campaign up currently:

This is sort of a protest - I will write and record one song a week and post it on Friday from now until someone starts paying me to do it. I guess technically then I will need to keep doing it, but you see what I’m saying. None of these are on a CD yet, so if you like them and you want more, please donate to me whatever you think is fair so I can keep doing them.
