1) Total volume of music files on my computer?
2624 songs, 7 days, 10.31 Gig. Pretty humble from what I've seen elsewhere. Also not representative of how much I own, which is alot more.
2) The last CD I bought was...
(dude! tartedelune! iron & wine was almost my answer!)
Sweeney Todd (I know you're all shocked) and the soundtrack to Life Aquatic. I bought the latter for "Ping Island/Lightning Rescue Op" because YEAH!!!
3) Song playing right now:
Since I wasn't listening to anything right this second, the Itunes "Party Shuffle" gives us... "Living in a Box" by Living in a Box, from the album, *snicker*, Living in a Box.
4) Five songs that I listen to a lot or that mean a lot to me:
ABBA - Super Trouper - I totally take a wrong meaning from this song. The singer is totally dependent on the dude she's singing about but I take this message of power from it.
Afro Celt Sound System - Life Begin Again - It's just powerful for me. It makes me feel all spiritual and I am about the least spiritual person you know.
Badly Drawn Boy - Once Around the Block - There is a memory, and a thing, and, um, yeah.
Cat Stevens - Moonshadow - I've had this song in my "playlist" since forever. I remember listening to my dad's Teaser and the Firecat cassette in rapture at a very, very young age. Now that I mention it, I remember listening to dad's ABBA too...
Connie Dover - Somebody - This song is the first on a cd that, no matter how shitty life is and how miserable I am, always lulls me to sleep when I need it most.
Those are just the first five I noticed scanning alphabetically. Since it's 12:08 and all.
Which 5 people are you passing this baton to, and why?
I pass it to bizarrojack, because unless I tell him he might not notice. Also I am mean. I pass it to alainnduil, my karaoke cohort. I pass it to tzel, who should not feel pressured to answer until she's got time to relax. ;) I pass it to geniealisa and keryx, my oldest friends on this crazy space.
