Musical Baton

Anne has passed the musical baton to me, so…

Total volume of music on my computer

I haven’t put much on the iBook, so: 1.6GB (pathetic). But the external hard drive with legacy MP3s from my desktop PC has in the region of 10GB (still pathetic). There is some of absolutely everything in there, trust me.

The last CDs I bought

I actually don’t buy many CDs for myself – people give them to me, and I give them to other people. The last two I was given were:

Damien Rice / O – the soundtrack to my life for the last few months
Ward / It Might Be Useful for Us to Know – which is fantastic and I am going to tell you why when I get round to it (promise!)

Song playing right now
The Slits – Typical Girls
(This is kind of only half cheating cos I wasn’t playing any music when I started this post, so deleted everything I had preprogrammed into party shuffle and this is what came up first – really)

Five songs I listen to a lot, or that mean a lot to me

Only five? Geez…

Soft Cell – Say Hello, Wave Goodbye
Neil Diamond – Love on the Rocks
Damien Rice – Delicate The Blower’s Daughter
Leonard Cohen – Hallelujah (Jeff Buckley’s version is magic too)
Ben Harper – Walk Away

[if I was trying harder to be cool, this list would have been very different – but it’s an honest and contextually appropriate list! At least it has thematic coherence, right?]

Next on the list: Christian, MC Gregg, Trine, Glen and Ben. In your blogs, ploise. Oh, but leave the permalink in comments here, kay?

[update] Geez, I wish Sigur Ros’s Staralfur had been playing while I wrote this post. It’s my New Favourite Song in the Whole World.
