Music Baton

Awhile ago I was passed the music baton. This basically entails posting one’s music preferences and other miscellaneous information. In addition to the requirements I added a few categories of my own. Here Goes:

Total volume of music files on my Ipod:
2.64GB -1.5 days of listening time - 511 songs
* I chose early on to put only the songs I really like on my Ipod. There’s plenty of songs in my music collection I have no desire to hear again. So why bother storing them.

Last CD Bought:
Sade (can’t remember the title) it was a two disc set (music CD and live performance DVD) - It Stunk.

Song Playing Right Now:
Brian McKnight - “6-8-12”

Last 8 Randomly Played Ipod Songs:
1) Aimee Mann - Take it Back
2) Cat Stevens - Here Comes My Baby
3) James Taylor - Another Day
4) Marvin Gaye - Inner City Blues
5) Snow Patrol - Chocolate
6) Simply Red - Sunrise
7) Five for Fighting - Love Song
8) Innocence Mission - Lakes of Canada

Five songs that make think introspectively:
1) Michael Buble - Home
2) Bruce Springsteen - The River
3) ‘til Tuesday - Coming Up Close
4) Tracy Chapman - Fast Car
5) James Taylor - Pretty much any song (Fire and Rain being the most obvious)

Songs that I don‘t seem to tire of hearing:
1) Marvin Gaye - Pretty much any song
2) Stevie Wonder - Higher Ground
3) Alicia Keyes - You Don’t Know My Name
4) David Gray - Babylon
5) Alison Krauss - It wouldn’t have made any difference anyway
6) Sting - Fragile
7) Sundays - Wild Horses

Songs that I Appreciate for their Subtle Humor:
1) Elwood - Sunrise (Gordon Lightfoot’s song)
2) Eiffel 65 - Blue (Da Ba Dee)
3) White Stripes - Hardest Button to Button
4) Southern Culture on the Skids - Camel Walk (ok this one is not so subtle)

Admittedly, music isn’t a big part of my life so you won’t find any hidden gems in my song lists. Most of the songs listed are easily accessible by the masses that corporate music companies cater to. My movie lists would express my individuality much better.
