DamienG has decided I should do this music Meme, so here goes:

Total volume of music files on my computer:

Which computer – home or work? My iPod says 2447 songs, 10.1Gb which I think must be in the order of about 7 days.

The last CD I bought was:

I think that would have to be *runs to cd collection* The President of The United States of America – Freaked Out & Small and Love Everybody (I got both at the same time).

Song playing right now:

Nothing is playing at the moment but I’ve just made a new “Summer Music” playlist that contains the likes of The Presidents, Blur, Moby, Apollo 440, Oasis… and other music that makes me think of summers at uni.

Five songs I listen to a lot, or that mean a lot to me:
(In no particular order)

  • Apollo 440, Heart Go Boom – I reminds me of my first summer at uni.
  • DJ Shadow, Organ Donor (Extended overhaul) – I just love the hammond organ in it.
  • Mr Oizo, Flat Beat – The first time I heard it on the Levi’s ad I wanted it. It now reminds me of bunking off school , driving around in my mates kev’ed up Fezie.
  • The All Seeing I, Beat Goes On – It was playing on the radio when I broke up with my first girlfriend, I’m not an emotional person but that really got me.
  • Public Domain, Operation Blade – When the coding is going good this just makes it better.

Five people to whom I�m passing the musical baton:

  • Phrixus, I think his music likes are the same as mine.
  • Dave, who knows what Dave likes, he’s Dave!
  • Leigh Brooks, yet another unknown musical quantity.
  • Yrsa Andersson, because her taste in music is so different to mine.
  • Miri … for the hell of it!

That took longer than I thought it was going to take… can I go to bed now?

Alright, so it’s not late at night when this finally made it onto my site but it was late when I started it, I just couldn’t decide which five people to send it on to… sorry if you didn’t make the list.
