What your Music says about you!
Today I’m doing a “music meme” that I recently saw on That’s What She Blogged, and I thought it was very interesting. I’ve modified it because I thought the original was a little too long, and slightly confusing. The meme is done while looking over your iTunes music library, or by going through your iPod.
What song are you obsessed with right now?
“Frontier Psychiarist” by The Avalanches.
Is there a song on your player that is only there for someone else’s benefit?
“Elvira” by The Oak Ridge Boys.
My mom and I were driving cross-country from San Diego to Alabama last October and I made a playlist for our road trip. She loved this song when I was a kid (I have vivid memories of her singing along to this song, while we drove around the town in her old crappy Ford Granada) so I put it on the playlist as a surprise.
What are the names of your playlists and what are they playlists of?
80’s Music (Title states the obvious), Festerville (A few friends and I were exchanging mixtapes last year and this is the mix that I sent my good friend Paul “Fester” LaFleche), Peartini (Fun, pop high-energy music), Road Tripper (music created for my road trip with my Mom last year), Rum Jungle (rock music) and Terrill (a mix of Terry’s favorite crazy Japanese music that he likes).
What is your favorite song on your player that is from a Movie?
“You Know My Name” by Chris Cornell (Casion Royale). This isn’t my favorite movie song, but it’s actually the only one I’ve got in my iPod. Weird!
What did you most recently add to your player?
“The Black and White Album” by The Hives. I love them and I love this album.
What is the silliest song on your player?
“Yo Ho (A Pirates Life for Me)” the Pirates of the Caribbean song (from the ride, not the movie)
What is the longest song on your player?
I don’t have my iTunes to look at, so I can’t say for sure. But I’ve got a lot of long instumental things…mostly stuff from Final Fantasy video games and from my favorite composition/opera, Carmina Burana by Orff.
What is the sexiest song on your player?
“I Want You (She’s So Heavy)” by The Beatles.
What are the most “atypical” songs on your player?
Probally all the crazy Japanese music that I have. When I was dating Terry, he introduced me to a lot of really cool music that he discovered that were soundtracks to various anime liked, such as Samurai Champloo and Cowboy Bebop.
What song would you be the most embarassed to have other people find out is on your player?
None of them, not really. I am not embarrased by music because it’s all so subjective. I really have quite a varied taste and I pretty much like every genre, except really hardcore gangsta rap or something.
I suppose the closest song I have to embarassing is “Crank That” by Soulja Boy. And it’s only really embarassing because it’s such a bad song. I don’t even remember downloading it?
Without cheating, start your player and list the first 10 songs that come into random play:
- “Comfortably Numb” by Pink Floyd
- “Squealer” by AC/DC
- “Parallel Universe” by Red Hot Chili Peppers
- “One Night in Bangkok” by Murray Head
- “Foolin'” by Def Leppard
- “Bendable Poseable” by Hot Chip
- “Crawl Away” by Tool
- “Start the Fire” by No Doubt
- “Interstate Love Song” by Stone Temple Pilots
- “And Your Bird Can Sing” by The Beatles
Now, after all of that…I’m not sure what my music says about me. That I’m eclectic? A latent hippie? What do you think it says?
