The Pulse is a music blog that trys to filter down the thousand or so tracks we hear each month into 20 songs that we think are Pulseworthy. You can read more in the About Us
Because we love music and love to help our friends find great music and great artists. It's certainly not for the money. If only it could be though, someday, someday...
a) The music player is at the bottom of the page and allows you to Load, change and Save any of the Pulse mixes or mixes you've created and saved. Click the iTunes button on the player bar to see and buy the whole mix in iTunes. See the Music Playing info tab above for more info on making and sharing your own mixes!
b) Every month we'll post a mix, you can find it on the Monthly Mix Page
. To download the songs, just click the iTunes button in each post and it will take you right to it. On occasion, there are tracks that iTunes doesn't have (shocker!) like remixes or mashups. In that case there will be a Download This Track
link. Right click that link, pick Save As
, pick the folder to save it in, then go to iTunes and then click File->Add to Library
and pick from where you saved it. Might be simple to some, but I had to explain this to my sister so just in case....
c) We'll also try to post a song a week or whenever we feel like it, that aren't part of the monthly mix. But you can browse all tracks including these by going to the Songs of the Week
section, or you use the search box to find something specific.
d) You can get social with all this stuff in a number of ways. For each post there are Tweet, Like and +1 buttons under the post picture. The same buttons exist on the music player bar and work with the currently playing song. You can also comment on each post and leave your mark on Pulseworthy forever (even post that comment to Facebook). If you don't know what any of that is, the internet is full of people and places that will tell you.
Having a login for the Pulse allows you to create custom playlists. There will be even more cool stuff you can do coming soon! (like share playlists with friends) Plus it's super easy with just one click using your Facebook or Twitter login. And unlike most other sites, you don't have to give up the goods to do that.

. Don't fret, we won't judge. Actually, we love questions. Trust me, if you don't get it, you're not alone. It just means we haven't made it simple enough.
1. Buy shit! Click the iTunes links on our site to go straight to the tracks and we get a humble 5% commission on what you purchase. Or better yet, click on one of the few music related advertisers we have relationships with and buy some of their cool music stuff. We are particularly fond of TuneUp!
2. Follow us on Facebook or Twitter and share what you like with your world. Tell your friends, family and anyone else about our site. Just don't tell the weird uncle.
3. Support the artists. If you like their music, show your love. Don't just buy the track, check them out on tour (hell buy a t-shirt while you're there), and tell your friends. U2 makes over $100 million per year and the vast majority of that is from touring, not album sales. Of course you'll never see their music on this site, but the basic concept applies to The Knocks as well.
