She’s one of a small group of us at work who try to introduce each other to new music. Sometimes we copy albums for each other (Back to Black by Amy Winehouse, OK Go, Supreme Beings of Leisure, are a few I’ve shared), sometimes we make mixed CDs of songs we think the others will like. I led off with “Brighter Discontent” by The Submarines because my friend, and one of our other CD/music sharing friends, loved it when I sent them a link of the scene from Nip/Tuck that used the song (I can’t find an actual video of the song).
