Music meme madness

I’ve been challenged by the dynamic Lachlan to perpetuate this meme. For lack of brain cells to give you a better post, I gladly accept. I think she picked me because I like to randomly share songs. 😉

Total number of music files on your computer:
11 gigs, baby. Upward of 2,100 songs.

The last CD you bought was:
Minnie Driver, “Everything I’ve Got in My Pocket” (But I’ll give you another song than the title track because we can ALL identify with a lyric like “Your temple’s the downtown bar,” right? LOL)

What is the song you last listened to before reading this message?
Abigail, “Could It Be Magic”

The 5(ish) albums that mean the most to you. (Not the 5 albums you would take to a desert island.)

Disclaimer: I’ve listened to them to DEATH and therefore yanked ’em from heavy rotation.

1. Tara MacLean’s “Passenger” or “Silence”

2. Sarah McLachlan’s “Fumbling Toward Ecstasy” or “Solace”

3. Melissa Etheridge’s “Breakdown”

4. Bon Jovi’s “These Days”

5. “Anywhere But Here” — music from the motion picture

The 5 songs you’re listening to the most right now:

1. Ashlee Simpson, “La La” (Shut up! LOL)

2. Madonna, “What It Feels Like For a Girl (Above & Beyond 12″ Club Mix)”

3. Hooverphonic, “Renaissance Affair”

4. Cyndi Lauper, “Eventually”

5. Alicia Keys, “Karma (Karmastition remix)”

The first 5 best lyrics that come into my head:

1. BT, “Force of Gravity” — “Do you cry your eyes asleep? Is it peace you seek at night when your body’s weak?”

2. Janice Ian, “At Seventeen” — “To those of us who know the pain / Of valentines that never came / And those whose names were never called / When choosing sides for basketball / It was long ago and far away / The world was younger than today And dreams were all they gave for free / To ugly duckling girls like me.”

3. Jodi Sheeler, “No Regrets” — “From the places you’ve forgotten / to the ones you never left / from all the things you said to all the things you really meant / from everything you might have been / to everything you are instead / here’s to no regrets.”

4. Bruce Springsteen, “The River” — “At night on them banks I’d lie awake / And pull her close just to feel each breath she’d take / Now those memories come back to haunt me / they haunt me like a curse / Is a dream a lie if it don’t come true / Or is it something worse.”

5. Tom Waits, “I Hope That I Don’t Fall In Love With You” — “I can see that you are lonesome just like me / And it being late, you’d like some some company / Well I turn around to look at you / And you look back at me / The guy you’re with has up and split / The chair next to you’s free / And I hope that you don’t fall in love with me. / Now it’s closing time, the music’s fading out / Last call for drinks, I’ll have another stout / Well I turn around to look at you /
You’re nowhere to be found / I search the place for your lost face / Guess I’ll have another round / And I think that I just fell in love with you.”


Rob Thomas, “Lonely No More” — “What if I was good to you? What if you were good to me? What if I could hold you till I feel you move inside of me?” (Are any of you surprised by this one? LOL)

Who are you going to pass this stick to? (3 persons) and why?

I’m paying it forward to EVERYONE OUT THERE, with an extra nudge to Amy and blog newcomers Mopsie and House Butch. And I’d be really disappointed if Tiff didn’t join the meme-y revelry! 😉

On iTunes: Bloodhound Gang, “Fire Water Burn”

    Ashlee Simpson.

    Oh, Dawn. Oh, poor, tragically misguided Dawn. This is what happens when you deprive your brain of nicotine.

    My musings on the topic are up at my site.

    As to this whole Ashlee Simpson thing, my hope for you is that you were listening to it for purely humorous reasons.
