Music Meme #1

Okay, okay I know what everyone is saying: You're writing a meme? Yes, Virginia there is a meme god Santa Claus.!

Just a footnote: I’m not quite the techie, so it took me a minute to organize the first question. Most people could have accessed the info in minutes, just takes me much longer.

Ron tagged me after Bill passed the baton to him, so let’s have at it:

1. Total amount of music files on your computer:

Twenty wav files, 3000 mp3 files, but there are a few dozen files that are on CDRW that need to be converted. There are dozens of CDs that have yet to be downloaded. No high geek rating for me, sorry.

2. The last CD you bought was:

Style by Club 69. A few days ago, Victor Calderone was on my mind. Hopefully later this week, we can discuss Peter Rauhofer so I'm re-listening to some of his earlier music.

3. What is the song you last listened to before reading this message?

Ride in the Sky, Track 7 from the self-titled debut, the Brand New Heavies. This was their first album and ever so delicious.

4. Write down 5 songs you often listen to or that mean a lot to you:

i. Dream Come True by the forementioned BNH is always being rocked, all five or six versions that I'm aware of. It's also the only song that I have sang in public, while performing very bad karaoke. I'm in love with the song's message of hope and dreams of love; N'Dea Davenport's voice is stunning. There's also a not-so-well-known version by Linda Muriel on Original Flava that is lovely.

ii. Stay This Way, extended version, also by the Heavies. The lyrics are wonderful: I'm a sucker for well-written love songs.

iii. Whatever, by Miss Jill Scott. She's in love, and talks of going to any length to please her man. :p

iv. Latin Lover, a Masters at Work production performed by the divine Stephanie Mills. Stephanie's voice is sultry and commanding, always loved it.

v. Brazilian Tapestry, none other than the uber-fabulous Astrud Gilberto. For all the reasons mentioned over the weekend.

5. Who are you going to pass this stick to? (3 persons) and why?

First, my blogging buddy Rosalind , because she is quite the techie and never ceases to amaze me. And two new additions to my links list: Brian and Pip. I'd like to hear their tastes.
