This Just Handed to Me…

I’ve been invited by Addison Hall to participate in this “musical baton” thing that’s being passed from blog to blog. I’m a good sport, so here goes:

Total volume of music on my computer: 10.09GB, 2,572 songs, 6.5 days worth.

The last CD I bought was: Escondida, by Jolie Holland. Already among my favorite albums.

Song playing right now: None. I actually don’t usually listen to music while I work (this is working?). On the other hand, I do like to listen to stuff from the Fresh Air archives while I work.

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

Well, these don’t all necessarilly mean a lot to me, but they are a few of my favorites…

Cheminant A La Ville, by Kate & Anna McGarrigle. I know some french so I can almost understand this song. Plus, it’s beautiful.

Communication Breakdown, by Led Zeppelin. Best played very loud.

Jealous Guy, by John Lennon. My favorite Lennon song.

Free Money, by Patti Smith. I love her early stuff.

You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go, by Madeleine Peyroux. Great cover of an old Bob Dylan song.

Five People to Whom I am Passing the Baton:
