Thanks to Billyum, I’ve been passed the musical baton. He actually has a cute little post about conducting…and yes, conducting is difficult (even without the baton).

On with the meme…

Total volume of music files on my computer:
According to iTunes, I currently have 2,879 songs, which would take about 9.3 days to listen to, and taking up 13.06 GB of disk space.

Personally, I know there’s more because not all my songs are in that play list…but they’re scattered all over the place. Let’s call it an even 20 GB

The last CD I bought was:
To be quite honest, I really don’t remember, but the last CD in my book is The Best of Mendelssohn…however, I should note my CD books are organized by style and genre.

Song playing right now:
Nature Boy by Nat ‘King’ Cole

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

This is really hard.

Miss You by Aaliyah
Broken by Seether ft. Amy Lee
Tears In Heaven by Eric Clapton
Symphony #40 in G Minor, K. 550 (first movement: molto allegro) by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Fields of Innocence by Evanescence

Bonuses my favorite flute & piccolo solos performed at S&E (worry not William, I’m a classical nerd too):
Vocalise by Rachmaninoff
La Flute de Pan – Pan Et Les Bergers by Mouquet
Minuet and Dance of the Blessed Spirits (from Orfeo ed Euridice) by Gluck
Serenade by Haydn (this was never a solo of mine, but I did sight read it, and I always smile when I hear it)
Concertino by Chaminade
Just about anything by Telemann

Disclaimer: This list doesn’t even scratch the surface. And while searching for the links to the individual albums, I’ve now found a CD I must have…each of the songs (with the exception of 1) is a flute solo I’ve played one time or another – French Flute Favourites

Damn, this meme took on a life of its own.

Five people to whom I’m passing the baton:
Paul Short - just cuz I want to see what he listens to
Daisyhead – I know she likes music, and so far her taste seems pretty on point
J.A.S.O.N. - just cuz I feel like giving him more stuff to do :)
Tom – you’ve been awfully quiet
BJ – because you just need to relax and take a breather…

There are some other people I’d like to pass the baton to, but I’m hoping that they will get tagged by at least 3 of the 5 people I chose :)
