Music meme
ArmyWifeToddlerMom tagged me with a music meme, and although I think I may have done a similar one some months ago, I would love to do it again. Music's a pretty big interest in my life...

I am like AWTM, in that I absolutely love all music. There is no genre I can honestly say I hate, although some I enjoy more than others.

Total Volume of music:

CDs: 440 and yes, I did catalogue them some time ago.

Cassettes, Records, tapes: Cassettes, probably only about 30 or so left around here. I have no medium to play them anymore. Records, about 200 or so LP's and probably 100 45RPMs. A few years ago, I started collecting the discards of my brothers and family when they decided to get rid of their turntables. I don't have a turntable either but have decided to try and find one, with the intention of converting them into MP3.

MP3, and other hard drive format: 150GB, or somewhere around 28,000 songs. I had only about 40GB until a week ago, when a friend at work loaned me his hard drive of 113GB of songs. I am still going through deleting all the duplicates but I feel right now like I must have every song ever recorded!

Last CD I bought: Rod Stewart/Stardust. I love his new style...mellow, and great background music.

Song Playing Right now: .38 Special, Caught Up in You

5 Songs that mean a lot to me:

1) I'll Stand By You - The Pretenders (I've always wanted that to be my first dance song)
2) With Arms Wide Open - Creed (when Hayley was born, it seemed so perfect!)
3) Blueberry Hill - Fats Domino (my parent's first dance, and it reminds me of the love they share even after 53 years of marriage)
4) Someone Else's Dream - Faith Hill (reminds me of when I finally felt strong enough to leave home and start my own life)
5) Good Mother - Jann Arden

First recording I bought myself: a 45 of Bette Davis Eyes by Kim Carnes.

Artists whose recordings you own on more than 2 manufactured (not home copied):
Rod Stewart, Aerosmith, Garth Brooks, John Cougar Mellencamp, Billy Joel, U2, oh..there's lots. Many of my CDs are various artists. I have a 'compilation cd' addiction and especially when I travel, I always like to grab a few compilations. England's always got much better compliation CD's than we ever seem to get in North America.

And on that note, I bought tickets to two concerts this week too. On August 23, I will be in Row 8 for John Cougar Mellencamp/John Foggerty, and in October, we will all be going to see Loverboy at the casino!

Vancouver, British Columbia
A patriotic Canadian full of visions of a better Canada, random thoughts and a lot of hot air. Who am I? A struggling writer and photographer, who looks forward to a better Canada. I read. A lot. I learn. A lot. I push myself. A lot. The world is a small place, and getting smaller every day. I'm proud to have friends in every corner of the earth, and abide by the old adage that there are no strangers, only friends we haven't met yet.
