Ms. Jen takes the Baton….

Wag passed the baton to me… Thanks Wag! Here’s my contribution to the musical meme that continues to trot around the blog-world:
Total volume of music files on my computer: A peasly 2.68 GB. I only keep what I am currently listening to on my computer, the rest of my music is cds in my car or room. I like to leave room for lots and lots and lots of photos.
Last CD I bought: Gurgle… gurgle… agh…
I must admit as an editor on an online music zine and the co-booker at Alex’s Bar … lots of cds come in the mail, very rarely do they get bought…
Song playing right now: I am currently taking $ at the front door at Alex’s tonight for the Icarus Line / 400 Blows / Darker My Love show. Darker My Love is playing, I don’t know the name of the song.
Five songs I listen to a lot these days: I have had the same 5 cds in the car for a couple of weeks now, including my road trip to the Bay Area, and all of these songs I listen to on my computer frequently as well:
1) Gina from San JoseEleven Hundred Springs – I love the honestly in Matt Hillyer’s voice as he sings this raw honky tonk love song to his real life lady.
2) The OutlawDropkick Murphys – I love the Murphys. Love the power of this song. This is the best song off of the last CD, Blackout.
3) City of Blinding LightsU2 – This song has grown on me. When I first heard it, I thought it was too slow and a bit schmaltzy lyrically. Now I love it.
4) This Old HouseLoretta Lynn – The whole of the “Van Lear Rose” CD makes me happy and sad at the same time. I like to listen to it late at night a cry. Specifically, “This Old House” is a great tale of a song with wonderful, spacious old timey instrumentation.
5) Hey Bartender – Laurel Aitkin – This “First Wave” Ska song makes me laugh whenever I hear it. It is very infectious, esp. the hiccups.
And now I pass the baton to:
Julie Wanda
Megan and Murray
