Welp, I’ve been slapped with a meme. Thanks, Ms. Melanie. What’s a girl to do? Answer, I guess.
1. Total amount of music files on your computer?
A lot. Gigs and Gigs of it. I recently transferred most of my CDs, so I have a large library of music on my computer.
2. The last CD you bought was:
A bunch of Christmas CDs from the grocery store, including: James Brown, Dean Martin, The Brady Bunch, Dolly Parton, and Cyndi Lauper.
3. What is the song you last listened to before reading this message?
A stirring medley of Cream’s greatest hits performed by Howard, Artie, and Fred on the Howard Stern show this morning (I know, I know, but sometimes it’s funny. The Cream thing was great.)
4. Write down 5 songs you often listen to or that mean a lot to you:
Wow. This is hard. I go through phases and have tons of favorite songs. I’m going to throw some extras in. These are in no particular order and if I made this list tomorrow, it would probably be different.
-Hallelujah – Jeff Buckley. Achingly beautiful.
-I Am Not a Pretty Girl Ani DeFranco. Go on, sistergirl!
-This Will Be (an Everlasting Love) Natalie Cole. Pure joy in a handy 3-minute package.
-Red Right Hand Nick Cave. I love the classic spooky vibe in this one.
-Every Little Thing Raul Malo. This song is smokin’ hot.
-Rock and Roll Suicide David Bowie (or Ziggy Stardust, I suppose). Glam rock drama at its finest.
-Jockey Full of Bourbon Tom Waits. I always imagine this song being used at a ballroom dance competition. It’s kind of a slow rumba. (Tom Waits would always be on this list, but the song depends on the day)
-Let’s Go Crazy Prince. Freaking awesome song. I toyed with the idea of having our wedding vows start with the lyrics to the beginning of this song.
5. What 3 people are you going to pass this baton to and why?
All three of these ladies are really cool and I want to read their lists. Lay it on me, sisters.
