A Musical Mystery Solved

A Musical Mystery Solved
Originally uploaded by Juston Western

I heard this song on the Music Choice "Sounds of the Season" channel about 2 weeks ago, but didn't decide until after it played that I liked it. Unfortunately, the song's artist & title information didn't stick to memory, although some of the lyrics did. I figured I could find the song info on Google via searcing by some of the phrases from the lyrics, but I ended up with zero results.

I tried various lyrics databases & even a couple of iPhone apps (like Pandora & Midomi) hoping I could sing or hum the song to find out the title. I even contacted their official @MusicChoice Twitter account in hopes of finding out the song since their website can't provide playlist information. Ultimately it took me leaving on the Music Choice channel for 5 hours today until the song was replayed before I could figure it out. Perhaps fittingly, you can't buy the CD from any major online retailer, nor was the track available for purchase from iTunes/Amazon/Napster.

Thankfully in the end, I was able to find the MP3 as a free download, albeit in 128kbps quality. This has been a glimpse into the Juston musical journey (or quirkiness, as the case may be).
