Music Meme time

About this time last week John slapped me with the music meme stick and then came to visit, ensuring I wouldn't get around to responding for at least a few days. Anyway, here's what I've got...

Total volume of music files on my computer:
Zero GB. I burned about 1G onto a disc for saving when I installed OSX a year ago, and I haven't downloaded or ripped anything since.

Last CD I bought:
It's been a while, thanks to generous friends who keep me supplied with fresh mix CDs. But I believe these three were in my last batch purchase:
Supper, by Smog
Vhunze Moto, by Oliver Mtukudzi
The Power Out, by Electrelane

Song playing right now:
Nothing, because our CD player is on the fritz. The last song playing in the car, however, was "Sunlight" by Herbie Hancock. From Sunlight

Five songs I listen to a lot these days:
"Liquidator" by Harry J. Allstars
From This is Reggae Music: The Golden Era 1960-1975, via a mix John handed me. A repetitious little organ bit, but groovy enough to crank up with the windows down.

"I Am That I Am" by Peter Tosh
Not as uppity as "Stepping Razor," but still an effective spirit lifter on a bad day.

"Super Cool (You're Just Super Fool) by Pat Hunt
One of many great tracks on SuperFunk vol 4, a collection of "rare and classic street funk from the vaults." If you can find a copy, balance this track with "Soul Heaven" by E Rodney Jones and Friends.

"Rocky Mountain High" by John Denver
I was never interested in JD as a child. Now I understand why. His are songs of experience, and many strike deep emotional chords for the more adult me. This track particularly so because it brings back memories of a hiking buddy who died of lung cancer in 2002.

"Watashi to Watashi" by Yuko Hara
Hara sings infectious little ditties in retro-chanson style, at least on the Tokyo Tamoure album I own. This is one is easy to sing along to even if you don't know Japanese.

Okay, I don't know how to tag, but if they're reading I'd be interested in hearing how Safety Neal and Mun Mun would respond to this meme.

Thanks for the meme, man, but it will probably take me a week to respond as well.

No problem, Neal. Take your time.
And whenever you finally meme that meme, I'll meme on over and meme it out.

I always liked Mr. Denver as a kid. My family still gives me a hard time about it. Maybe I was old for my age...not necessarily wise but old.

I'll get to work on this immediately!
