Stealing another good idea

Writing about Musical meme from Syncspeed

Total volume of music files on my computer
According to Musicmatch (which I agree, is ace) I have 1314 tracks, with a total time of 94 hours, 6 minutes (6.76GB). This is a lie however. I actually have 2014 tracks (9.35GB), but I haven't got round to correctly tagging and adding the remaining 700 to its library.

The last CD I bought was
Le Bleu – Justin King, a beautiful piece of acoustic guitar genius.

Song playing right now
She Says – Howie Day

Five songs I listen to a lot, or that mean a lot to me
There's much more than 5, and these particular 5 aren't representative of the whole particularly. Others include Hear You Me - Jimmy Eat World, New Slang - The Shins, I'm Not Afraid - Remy Zero, The Metre - Powderfinger, My Immortal - Evanescence, Too Long Awake – Idlewild…the list is long and now I'm just cheating the principle of "five".

Ready and Waiting to Fall - Mae This really could have been any song from the fantastic album – The Everglow. I picked this over the others because it has certain lyrics which just carry me away.
Best I Ever Had (Grey Sky Morning) - Vertical Horizon Memories of Israel Tour in 2000. Jeez was it so long ago? When I think about it it seems like yesterday. I was listening to this song when as we arrived at the Dead Sea. Happier, more carefree times.
Globes and Maps - Something Corporate One of those songs which triggers introspection. Those quiet moments where I just shut out the world and sink deeply into the music, as if nothing else matters. "I write a letter from a one way train but I don't think you'll read it at all"...
Winter - Joshua Radin I first encountered this on an episode of Scrubs, during a funeral. Since then I've associated it with death to a certain extent, but I love it because of its tender beauty.
Summer Song - Tammany Hall Another band from Scrubs, and for once an upbeat song. It's bouncy and optimistic and reminds me of days like today, even in the depth of a dreary London winter.

The five people I'm passing the baton onto
Erm…Alan and Rachel seeing as they're the ones most likely to read this, and whoever else wants it.

  3. I have that Vertical Horizon song as well.

    Though it may be because Simon here reccommended it.

  6. Wow, so I did. I stand corrected
    @Graphics: Well I've been sitting in my room for 35 minutes already. The exam finishes at 12:30. I like the odds ;-)
