Musical baton  13

I’ve read quite a few blogs lately, the authors of which have been passed a musical baton: someone they know emails them with a series of music related questions, they answer them and pass the baton on to other people.

Well, seeing as no-one has seen fit to pass it on to me (can you say “Billy No-Mates”? ;^) I’ve decided to just do it myself. Call me a saddo if you like - I don’t care. Actually, I do care and will probably cry about it for weeks, but I’d never tell you that!

Total volume of music files on my computer

Currently I have 2728 songs which equates to just over 15 gigabytes or 8 and a half days of music.

Song playing right now

Silver Machine by Hawkwind.

Five songs I listen to a lot, or that mean a lot to me

  1. The Scientist by Coldplay
    The first time I heard this I thought it was an excellent track and I still do - my favourite;
  2. Stripsearch by Faith No More
    Always one of my favourite bands and this is a truly great track;
  3. Night Boat To Cairo by Madness
    Easily my favourite Madness song - reminds me of my youth;
  4. Megablast (Hip Hop On Precinct 13) by Bomb The Bass
    Heard this on the radio one Sunday evening when I was about 16 and have loved it since;
  5. Transient by Orbital
    A recent addition to my A+ favourites playlist - just a brilliant track.

Five people to whom I’m sending the baton

No-one because no bugger sent it to me!


Night Boat to Cairo was by far the greatest song Madness ever did! - Adamant

Oi! - Timmargh

Well, I like coldplay at least. I just got my copy of the new album. Maybe I can buy loads of signals to eradicate that stupid frog. - bert

Oh well, now Ouch! has brought you to wider attention - cool blog dude - I’ll copy it and post it on my blog… drop in sometime :o) - Agent Fang

Cheers, Fang (or do I call you ‘Agent’?) - I’ll do that. - Timmargh

Just call me Fang! - Agent Fang

So, when we’ve all finished slating good ‘old’ Tim… - Wayne Smallman
