Music Meme Strikes

I got tagged by Kirk at Fun Turns to Tragedy!! with the music meme:

1) How much music do I have?

Way too much to count. A shelf full of nylon CD albums and more stacked on another shelf. I am a music packrat.

2) What was the last CD I bought?

Metallica's St. Anger. I was disappointed.

3) What am I listening to right now?

The Sounds of Silence...not by Simon and Garfunckel, just the sound of my house. (wait a sec) That and Squiggy chewing loudly on Purina Kitten Chow and Lenny batting an empty box across the floor. For all the music I have, I almost never listen to it at home.

4) Five songs I listen to that mean a lot to me?

1. "The Star Spangled Banner," never more so than after USAF Survival School. Ask any former POW why.

2. Supertramp's "Logical Song," my personal theme song as I graduated high school.

3. Meat Loaf's "Paradise by the Dashboard Light," my turn-it-up favorite.

4. Min Hae-kyong's "Sulpun Yaksok (Sad Promise)," the first Korean pop song I'd translated and memorized. And played a lot. Mannajimalaya-hayo, kudaywa nanun... Her next album had another I never get tired of hearing, "Pada wa Yonin (Sea and Lover)." I just love her voice.

5. 10,000 Maniacs' "Stockton Gala Days" and "These are the Days" off their Unplugged album; Natalie wrote many "bring you up" songs and the band so totally nailed SGD.

6) I’m passing this meme on to:

No one, but if someone picks up the gauntlet, drop me a comment and I'll link you.
