ME!ME!

So, like, I was feeling all sad and dejected because no one tagged me for any of those MEMEs going around…and THEN (wait for it…)…

I was tagged!!!

By not one, but TWO PEOPLE!!

WOO HOO!!

You DO like me!!!!

:-)

So, here ya go:

  1. Total amount of music files on your computer: I think the last time I saw my iTunes (I’m at work now…), there were about 650 songs on there. I know, I know, you’d think there’d be more, being that I’m a radio DJ and all…I guess most of my music is still on CD. I LOVE buying CDs. I don’t really believe in downloading illegally and I only buy a song here and there off of iTunes. If I really like an album, I buy the CD.
  2. The last CD you bought was: Technically, the last one I bought was a gift, so I can’t say. But the last one I bought for ME was ERASURE : NIGHTBIRD. Sooooo gooooooooooooooooood. :)
  3. What is the song you last listened to before reading this message? Ooooh, tough question, since I’m doing this meme at work and I totally don’t remember what was playing 10 minutes ago. The song playing right now is What’s Luv? by Fat Joe and Ashanti.
  4. What are your five favorite songs and why they mean the most to you: Damn. Another tough one. How can anyone pick just 5!?!?!?!?!?! Here are five songs that have been significant to me…
    • My Life – Billy Joel – I have a tape of me singing this song when I was 6 years old. It’s a tape of my dad asking all about why I loved Billy Joel because I had the HUGEST CRUSH ON HIM (why? I’m still not sure. Billy ain’t cute.) My dad died when I was 13.
    • Mercy in You – Depeche Mode – I don’t actually like this song that much, but Depeche Mode is my favoritest band ever and this coincidentally happens to be the song I um, lost my, uh…nevermind.
    • Silent All These Years – Tori Amos – Probably my favorite Tori song, and my favorite to sing to. When I, on the rare occasion, bust out with the Karaoke, this is the one I sing (or uh, attempt to sing ;) ). Tori Amos doesn’t play the piano, she CHANNELS MUSICAL ENERGY. She has a connection to that instrument I’ve never really felt with anyone else. It’s stunning.
    • Gorecki – Lamb – It’s a toss up between this one or Lamb’s Gabriel. Since Gorecki introduced me to Lamb, Gorecki wins. If it didn’t bust out into some crazy beats in the middle, it would be my perfect wedding song. Louise’s lyrics with Andy’s beats and knob twiddling just capture something so beautiful and perfect about love and finding that person you just fit with. Check it out.
    • Hollaback Girl – Gwen Stefani – This is currently the song I get hype to. This is a scream-along, stomp-along, girl-chant song and is soooooooooooooooooooo fun! ‘CAUSE I AIN’T NO HOLLABACK GIRRRRRRL!
  5. What 3 people are you going to pass this baton to and why? hrmmm. Who hasn’t done this yet?
    • Rossana because she just got a new iPod and I wanna know what’s ON it!
    • Mat because Mat knows music.
    • Angela because she is MAD funny, and I’m just totally curious (even though it’s not really her blog style, maybe she’ll oblige ;) )

Look at the time stamp on today’s entry. Dude. I’ve been up since 9a. I gotta finish up and get outta here…

Knitting updates later this week :)

    Oh Gaaaawd! I was happily voyeus-ing into your musical affinity when I got TAGGED! By YOU! OK, OK, I’ll play. (Thanks for the tag, btw) I have to dash off to be a worker bee now, but I’ll start making up answers. ;-p
    P.S. Depeche Mode, eh?

    Hehe…SATY is one of my karaoke songs of choice too (usually I go with the Pat Benatar so I can rock out, though). We just keep having more and more in common… *cue Twilight Zone theme*

    Say, if you’re a Tori Amos fan, does that mean you’re a Neil Gaiman fan as well? Just curious, as the two are a little intwined often times. I’ve seen Tori in concert like a hundred times. She’s so cool and so very weird. :)
