Indulging in a music meme.

[fr] Cinq questions musicales et on passe au suivant.

You need to thank Chris for this post 🙂

How many music files are on your computer?
iTunes tells me I have 3471 songs in my Library. There are maybe a dozen more lying around in various places.
Last CD you bought?
Bought, or received? Last addition to my collection is The Beauty of the Rain by Dar Williams. Last ones I bought (I bought two CDs at the same time) were From the Inside (Laura Pausini) and Le Meilleur de Bachelet.
What is the song you last listened to before reading this message?
My playlist served me Sing, by Travis, as I got to work on replicating this meme.
Five songs you often listen to or which mean a lot to you?
This is the tough one, isn’t it? My “favourites” change regularly. I’ll pick five, even if, of course, they’ll never be representative of my music taste:

  1. Echoes and Shadows by Barclay James Harvest: I’ve loved this one since I was a kid.
  2. Waltz #2 (Xo) by Elliott Smith: Fil sent me the mp3 to listen to once, and I got hooked. I’ve listened to it hundreds of times (it used to be on my phone so I could listen to it in the car), and of course, I bought the CD.
  3. Diamond in the Dark by Chris de Burgh: I have lots of “favourite” Chris de Burgh songs, inevitably, but this is one I discovered recently and that I totally fell for. Specially the line I need a little help… Someone put on a love song to bring her closer to me…
  4. Sweet Sir Galahad by Joan Baez: one of my all-time favourites, though there are many more she sings that I love.
  5. Someday I’ll be Saturday Night by Bon Jovi: I had the CD in my car in October-November, and I’d drive to school singing this song at the top of my lungs. I like singing it, because it goes pretty high up for me, but not so much that I can’t make it 😉
Who are you going to pass this on to and why?
Three victims? Neuro, because I’m curious to see what he listens to apart from Pet Shop Boys, and I’m sure he needs a break from coding the next-generation WPPM; Mouche, because I don’t have the faintest idea what music she listens to, and a little meme every now and again can’t hurt; Martine, because I know she’s not averse to memes, and she is somebody who excites my curiosity. Get to work, you three — you’re tagged!
