[Meme] Music Meme

Since technoshaman put me as one of the 'people who I'd like to see do this meme,' here we go.

Total Volume of Music on my Computer: 6.03 GB (and on iPod too)

Last CD bought: Uffington Horse, Enchantment
Last album bought (online): Silk Road Ensemble, Silk Road Journeys: Beyond the Horizon

Song playing right now: Uffington Horse, Water's in the Hold
Song before this: Third Eye Blind, Semi-Charmed Life

(My shuffle mode is odd.)

Five songs which mean a lot to me/that I listen to a lot:
Gordon Bok, Peter Kagen and the Wind -- I grew up on Gordon Bok's music.
久石譲, ふたたび -- I can't really explain why this particular Hisaishi song ends up on my playlist so often, but it does.
R.E.M., The Outsiders -- because it's melancholy, which I like in music, and describes a lot of my political feelings lately.
Sarah McLachlan, World on Fire -- because it's poignant, which I like in music, and describes a lot of political/economic feelings lately. :P
Guster, Center of Attention -- 'cause Guster's one of my favorite bands, and I really like this song. Not every reason is deep or insightful. :P

People I'd like to see do this meme:
bluerain, since I can't think of any more musically-inclined folks I know on LJ.
adamdray, out of random curiosity, since he keeps pointing me at songs on Rhapsody.
shadowfey, since I'm curious what she listens to while writing.

..and now I go find more painkiller, 'cause my entire lower left side is a rather impressive bruise.


I'd do the meme, but it takes too much work and I hate viral memes (the "now you do it" type). ;) But...

6.34 GB on my hard drive. Mostly, I stream it off Rhapsody and I don't burn that much to disk. I don't have an iPod or other MP3 player.

Last CD bought: Marillion's "Misplaced Childhood" and Sigur Ros' "()" (actually these were gifts to me)

Last album bought online: I've never bought an entire album online.

Song playing right now: Atomic Moog 2000 (Cornelius Mix) by Coldcut
Right before that one: "Pump up the Volume by M/A/R/R/S.

5+ songs I like a lot:

This is harder because my attention to songs is ephemeral but these have stuck with me a long time.

Kayleigh / Lavender by Marillion (a high school discovery that I never let go)
Moments in Love by Anne Dudley (remake of the Art of Noise song; it's just groovy)
Creep by Radiohead (I love the power of emotion in it)
Vltava (Moldau) by Bedrich Smetana (it stirs something in me and I can see the river)
Colour My World by Chicago (it's the song Steph and I danced to at our wedding)
Cars by Gary Numan (simple yet addictive)
Down In It by Nine Inch Nails (my first NiN exposure and where I started listening to crunchier music and reading cyberpunk)
