Music to My Memes

The iTunes meme via [personal profile] holyschist

My music is melted architecture

Instructions: Open up your iTunes (or WinAmp, or whatever, though iTunes is easiest for this I think) and fill out this survey, no matter how embarrassing the responses might be.

How many songs total: 9883
How many hours or days of music: 27.9 days

Most recently played: Eric Clapton/Derek and the Dominoes: "Tell the Truth (Jam#2)" from the Layla Sessions.

Most played: "By Way of Sorrow," Cry Cry Cry

Most recently added: "Lullaby Of Mexico," The Dave Brubeck Trio & Gerry Mulligan Live At The Berlin Philharmonie

Sort by song title.
First Song: A-Tisket, A-Tasket, Natalie Cole
Last Song: "2001 A Space Odyssey (Also Sprach Zarathustra)" on an album called Movie Classics. If that doesn't count, "1959" by Patti Smith.

Sort by time.
Shortest Song: "I Can't Help You Now," Bonnie Raitt, on Silver Lining: 0:03
Longest Song: "La Scala, Part 1," Keith Jarrett, 44:54.

Sort by album. Assuming they mean entire album:
First album: Abbey Road. I bet you know who made this one.
Last album: 1200 Curfews by the Indigo Girls. Disk 1 and disk 2)

First song that comes up on Shuffle: "I Hope You Dance," Lee Ann Womack.

Search the following and state how many songs come up:
Death - 14 (as [personal profile] holyschist says, mostly from movie scores and musicals, unsurprisingly)
Life - 106 (Many from album names: I own Lush Life, Karla Bonoff's All My Life, and Counting Crow's This Desert Life)
Love - 678 (Lots of songs here, and some albums: De-Lovely soundtrack, Best-Loved Hymns, Love Sixties, Love Actually soundtrack, We All Love Ella, Shakespeare in Love soundtrack, etc.
Hate - 5
You - 855
Sex - 7, of which two are songs about Wessez from the Shakespeare in Love soundtrack

And just for fun, my favorite genres are apparently
Classical: 2091
Folk: 834
Country: 494 (mostly Indigo Girls, Bela Fleck, bluegrass, Glen Campbell, and Emmylou Harris)
Jazz: 445
Soundtrack: 363
Christian, Religious, or Gospel: 355
