Music: What Happened? #6

This week, Scott tackles 1967. I love this part, about The Velvet Underground and Nico: "There was a time when I was the only person I knew who liked this record, then only one of two, then four, and I have lived to see the day when I have to complain that it's overrated."

Also, I am a tad bummed that we did not fulfill the Donors Choose project last week, and that so far most of the donors have been my close friends who have been generous enough to pony up for my past challenges. If everyone reading this donates $2-5, we'll win in no time! You're helping kids... and it's tax deductible!

Music: What Happened? #5

New Scott Miller song: Scott has recorded a cover of Chris Stamey's "Cara Lee," and we're going to make it available here as a free MP3 download. But there's a catch. First, this project at DonorsChoose.org needs to be fulfilled. This is your chance to help kids, and once we've raised the money, everyone gets to hear the song! Thanks so much to Scott for doing this!

Also, check out the latest installment of Music: What Happened?, which covers 1973. I'll try to post something here every time it's updated, so if you want a reminder, subscribe to our RSS feed.
