What is the total volume of musical files on your computer?
975 songs; 61:13.25 total time. This is at my office, where I have no disk space and listen to most songs off a CD.
I really should include the home totals. Maybe I'll edit this and add it at some point.
What song are you listening to right now?
Actually, the Red Sox game, but winamp is cued up to Matchbox 20's "Push."
Last CD you bought?
Hoppie got me Dan Fogelberg's The Very Best Of Dan Fogelberg last night.
Before that, I bought myself Bon Jovi 7800 Degrees Fahrenheit the other week.
Five songs you listen to a lot and which mean something to you:
"My Old Kentucky Home" - I have three versions of this on the old mp3 player, and I often seek it out, so I suppose it deserves a place. Stephen Foster is still brilliant, even when politically correctified, and maybe I'm romantising my birthplace solely because I don't live there, but, I do miss it. "Weep no more, my lady. Weep no more today."
"Hungry Heart" Bruce Springsteen - "I went out for a ride and I never went back".... I sang this song to myself quite a lot when I was in Israel. I often feel like I took an unexpected turn, and for reasons too complex and too off-topic to explain, I find myself continuing down the road. It's not a mistake necessarily, just not what I expected.
"Karma Chameleon" - Culture Club. This song reminds me of my family and I play it when I feel nostalgia and remember playing with my cousins at my grandparents house, when my grandfather was still alive.
"Didn't hear your wicked words every day,
And you used to be so sweet, I heard you say,
That my love was an addiction"
"Take it on the Run" - REO Speedwagon. "I Can't Fight This Feeling" was Michael's favorite REO Speedwagon song, but this one is mine. If there's anything sweeter than two girls wandering down the street singing REO Speedwagon at the top of their lungs, I haven't found it yet.
"Talk is cheaper when the story is good,
And the tales grow taller on down the line."
"Tam Lin"/"Matty Groves" Traditional ballads both which I have multiple version of. Lately I've been listening to Matty Groves more, but I'm sure that will change too. And because I seem to including lyrics, here's some from Matty Groves:
"And a servant who was standing by, hearing what was said,
He swore Lord Arlin, he would know before the sun did set.
And he did ride the King's Highway, he swam across the tide,
And n'er did stop until he came to great Lord Arlin's side."
"Then Lord Arlin he took his wife, and sat her upon his knee,
And said, 'who do you like the better of us, Matty Groves or me?'
And then up spoke his own dear wife, never heard to speak so free,
'I'd rather a kiss from dead Matty's lips, than you or your finery.'"
And we'll close it out with Tam Lin
"'Why come you to Carterhaugh without command from me?'/'I'll come and go,' then Jennet said, 'and ask no leave of these.'"
"And they will turn me, in your arms, into a lion bold, but hold me tight and fear not, I am your baby's father.
And they will turn me, in your arms, to a newt or a snake, but hold me tight and fear night, and you will love your child.
And they will turn me, in your arms, into a naked knight, but cloak me in your mantle and keep me out of sight."
Who are you tagging?
I never tag anyone. Do if it you want. Don't if you don't.
Or as Mike would say, Stay you want to stay. Go if you want to go.
