A few people out there already know what happens if you ask me to suggest a couple of songs from my music collection…
I don’t really know how to suggest just a couple.
I’m resolving to behave this time, though…
Total volume of music files on my computer:
There are 15.8 GB on BBB[the computer], ~8 gigs of which require sorting
and 17.7 GB on Casey[the external harddrive]
there’s about a 4.5 gig overlap between them.
So I guess that makes about 29 GB total.
The last CD I bought was:
What’s a CD?
I think the last one was for my brother. Probably a European pop-band of some sort, then.
Song playing right now:
oh… hold on.. lemme turn on the player.
okay, shuffle (it’s almost always on shuffle) brought up ‘Sunray’ by Riley Armstrong.
Five(+) songs I listen to a lot/mean a lot to me:
Well on every harddrive (BBB, Casey, whatever-I’d-named-my-M3) I am sure to have the following:
Amy Grant – ‘Oh How The Years Go By’ . This song goes back with me to middle school. Always kept it close.
Sting – ‘Ghost Story’ . This song was on my playlist in Kyoto-summer2. I heard it for the first time while I was walking the forest path between the campus and the Dohokan, and with the beginning melody it had me hooked. The words that followed were hauntingly dead-on too..
<insert> Joe Hisaishi – ‘Summer’ . Sorry… it has to go here.
Badly Drawn Boy – ‘The Shining’ .
Jason Mraz – ‘You and I Both’ . I love singing this song to myself. It’s up there with Madonna’s ‘More’ on the ‘fun to sing’ list. I never get tired of it.
DJ Doc – ‘Run To You’ . This remains my bounce song. Reminds me of a happy college dorm room and some very good people.
After that, there are dozens I have to keep with me at all times:
Collective Soul, Jimmy Eat World, Frou Frou, Howie Day, Jars of Clay, Garbage, Anggun, Postal Service, Vertical Horizon, Coldplay, Verbow, Better than Ezra, Jesse Cook – ‘Virtue’, Bif Naked – ‘Lucky’, Operatica – ‘Maria’s Dream’, Matchbox Twenty – ‘Unwell’, Wheelhouse – ‘Anna Begins’
…of course it continues… there’s a reason my collection stays so large despite my attemps to trim it all the time.
Did I overstep the Five-song question? *shrug*
Five people to whom I’m passing the baton:Alberto – one of my primary sources of good music. Mark Norton – If I don’t see They Might Be Giants mentioned at least as a footnote, I’m going to feel tricked. Rob Sable – What does Rob listen to? I don’t recall any evidence of music being referenced on Leafy. No time like the present. Junhoe – My dear cousin Junhoe established a homepage presence just in time for me to toss this his way. I know he’s good for this; he basically does this for every one of his entries anyway. Alexandra – Will be nice to get a bit of German taste in the mix. My “to listen to” folder always appreciates some fattening.
