A long time ago (probably ten years ago now) I bought an issue of Rolling Stone because it came with a free CD. This was the CD that it came with. It's an album sampler for the Icelandic singer Moa. This was sponsored by Calvin Klein jeans, and you can see Moa wearing their clothes in the image above. A few years ago I found her album on Amazon. You can download the album at the Isle of Deserted Pop Stars.
What I did was use the program MusicBee to create a one-track FLAC file of the entire disc. It contains the full song 'Joy & Pain' and snippets of 'Toy', 'Memory Cloud', 'Overcome' and 'Joy & Pain (Dimtri from Paris Remix)'. Since it is an FLAC file, it's really big (about 71 MB).
I bought these two singles a long time ago, back when they actually came out. I didn't know much about the group at all - back then I had a thing for girl groups (and still do, lol). I finally bought their album last year - you can download it and learn more about the group at the Isle of Departed Pop Stars.

I remember buying Tia's debut album way back in 1996 or so, around when it was released. I really liked it, so when I saw this single at the local Wal Mart I had to have it, since 'Cars' by Gary Numan is one of my favorite '80s tracks. Tia's version has some new lyrics written by Tia herself and Sunne, and it was produced by Sir Mix-A-Lot. You can download her debut album at The Isle of Deserted Pop Stars.

'Look At Me' was Geri's debut solo single, released in 1999. Sadly, it only went to number 2 on the UK charts, and I don't think it did well at all in the US. Below is the tracklising for the single, and I included the US edit, which removes the Shirley Bassey-ish bridge.

I am very much looking forward to the UK duo Huski's second album, called Strangelove. According to their MySpace page, the album has gone to manufacturing. Fortunately, there are some tracks from the album on their MySpace music player. Last year I managed to save the following tracks onto my computer.
