So. Here’s the deal. I get a brief email from 46bliss (ok. not the band because…well…anyway…figure of speech.) Jack Freudenheim, songwriter, emailed after we posted the One Hit Wonders list. Just in case you don’t know who 46bliss is think pop/electronic (and I hate the word “dream,” but reviewers always seem to use it…ok…like maybe a Zero 7 or maybe Air type band). I put their song “The Way you Are” on my list.
First. He wasn’t begging to get off the infamous, or not so famous, list of my one hit wonders.
Second. But. He and the band are unfortunately going to have to be replaced on the list. My list of one hit wonder bands certainly had a number of bands with several really good songs (just one great one) and 46bliss was one of them.
Jack dropped me a note to suggest I listen to “In a Long Time” (which he noted was his favorite) and then mentioned I may like the newest CD Wish Me Away (to accommodate my peculiar tastes in music).
I admit. I missed “In a Long Time” which is on their second cd just called 46bliss (and has “The Way You Are” on it). The CD Wish me Away also has several more Postal Service-like songs (which I like).
46bliss is now officially off my one hit wonder list (but still check out “The Way You Are”).
Hey. Just a note. If you are into this type of music (think club electronic) like maybe a 4 Strings or Chicane or Andain, then you should know 46bliss also has two remix CDs which Jack didn’t point out but I found cruising on cdbaby. Worth adding to your collection if this is your thing.
Editorial note: If more artists did this type of thing (drop a quick note to bloggers and rambler writers like me) the music industry would be a lot better off image wise and sales wise.
