1). Total volume of music files on my computer?
I'm not the one whose computer has the music on it. That's timprov. We share an office, so if I want to play music in here, I either put a CD in or use his playlist. He's in the process of ripping everything we own to his computer a bit at a time. He's up through G, I think. He also had a special Sampo playlist for me, and if I come up with a playlist for my next thing, he'll do that, too, I'm sure. But for now he has a big "everything" playlist, so there'll be a bit of Ian Anderson's post-flute patter leading into a Louis Armstrong/Bing Crosby duet leading into one of the songs from "Evita."
2). The last CD I bought was...
The Flash Girls, "Maurice and I," at Minicon.
3). Song playing right now:
Gin Blossoms, "Alison Road." I often forget that I like the Gin Blossoms, because...why would it come up any more? And they're not particularly special to me. But the songs are fun enough, and also I got the story about how Sammy Davis Jr. saved western civilization from mishearing them.
4). Five songs I listen to a lot or that mean a lot to me:
That mean a lot to me, oof. Let's leave that one, shall we? Because it's a lot more than five, and it's a lot more complicated than I'm in the mood to discuss right now. So let's go with what I've been listening to a lot.
I've been on a "Lovers in a Dangerous Time" kick. I prefer the Oyster Band version dd_b gave me, but my Barenaked Ladies are always allowed. (We only have their version on video, though.) I also keep singing BNL's "Aluminum" and Flash Girls' "November Song" lately, and Blues Traveler's "Girl Inside My Head," and the Indigo Girls' "Power of Two."
As lexiphanic says, there really are way more than 5. Especially if we get into "meaningful" and not merely "earwormed."
5). Which 5 people are you passing this baton to, & why?
Oh...scottjames, greykev, the_overqual, greatestofnates, and timprov. The first three to hear from them and how things have changed since I was around them more, Yore because I've never had a very good sense of where his musical tastes extend (although this isn't the best meme for that), and T because I'm interested to know how much we have etc. But any of them who don't feel like it will not offend me if they say no.
