Musical Baton

The Musical Baton

One of my readers passed this on to me. (Yes, Lasciate I do read your blog). Here are my answers....

Total volume of music: In a nod to one of my favorite movies, the volume of my music is 11. (You see most go to ten…) Anyway, I have some music, but probably the least in terms of volume than any of my friends.

CDs: 75-100

Cassette tapes, records: Oh so many and all probably shameful (Like T’Pau, MC Hammer, etc.) In storage somewhere. Last time I was at my parent's house I found an actual LP of Asia (Alpha), the Xanadu and Grease Soundtracks.

MP3 and various other hard drive formats: About 1,000 songs, all legal I might add.

Last CD I Bought: Actual CD purchased? The Eminem Show .(I buy all digital now)

Song Playing Right Now: Diggin’ in the Dirt, Peter Gabriel

Five songs that mean a lot to me: Father and Son (Cat Stevens), River (Peter Gabriel), Smooth Criminal (Alien Ant Farm), That Rainy Day (Astrud Gilbreto), Heartbreaker (Dionne Warwick, Barry Gibb), please note that this list would change depending on when you asked me.

First recording I purchased and how old I was: Although I’d rather plead the 5th on this one…I bought a copy of Tony Kushners Disco Hits (LP) back in 1978 ( was 9) with money I had earned cleaning swimming pools. The Shame! Still classic though with tunes like Ring my Bell, Shake Your Body, I Will Survive, etc. Great for parties.

Artist whose recordings I own on more than two types of media?
Prince. MP3 and CD. (Purple Rain[on LP], Diamonds and Pearls, 7, The Hits and the B Sides, Slave, Musicology.)

PEOPLE TO WHOM I'M PASSING THE BATON: I have an agreement with my friends that I never pass this stuff on. Sorry!

I stand (sheepishly) corrected.

Cool answers, btw, Elephant. I'm guessing I'd generally like your taste in music (yes, yes, even Xanadu and Grease. Once upon a time, at least...not so sure about Asia, though).

I should adopt that agreement of yours, though, to not pass around things like this. Its a good one.
The Asia album was a gift from some Aunt who liked the cover art or something...

I enjoyed the little exercise.
