Music Tag

So I saw this on Tracy's blog and thought it was a fun quiz. Hey Christy, what's she think of people she doesn't know checking out her blog?

Open iTunes/iPod or Windows Media Player to answer the following questions about your music collection.

How many songs? 3323 (8.4 days, 11.21 GB). It's got all of Chris' music but probably only about a third of my CDs. My brother had to buy himself a second hard drive because he has so much music!

Sort by song title:
First Song: 'Cause I Like it That Way- SHe DAISY
Last Song: Zor and Zam- The Monkees

Sort by time:
Shortest Song: Apparently there is a 1 second blank track by the Dixie Chicks, but since I don't think that one really counts, 4 seconds, Low Clouds (2) by James
Longest Song: 18 minutes, 36 seconds- Alice's Restaurant Massacree- Arlo Guthrie

Sort by album:
First Album: 10 Things I hate About You Soundtrack (Love this!!!)
Last Album: Zoot Suit Riot- Cherry Poppin' Daddies

Top Five Most Played Songs: This is only because we had to wipe the computer clean not too long ago, not necessarily because these were really the most played...
The Lucky One- Alison Krauss (4 plays)
I'll Be That Girl- Barenaked Ladies (3 plays)
Way Over Yonder In the Minor Key- Billy Bragg and Wilco (3 plays)
Hold on to Me- John Michael Montgomery (3 plays)
End Credits- Braveheart Soundtrack (3 plays)
The Alison Krauss and the Billy Bragg have multiple plays because Chris was testing them when reloading the music. But like I said earlier, the music is only recently back on the computer so these numbers aren't accurate.


First song that comes up on Shuffle: Galileo by Simmons Sirens- a cappella group

How many songs come up when you search for "sex"?: 1- She Thinks my Tractor's Sexy- Kenny Chesney :)

How many songs come up when you search for "death"?: 1- The Death Of St. Jimmy- Green Day

How many songs come up when you search for "love"?: 196

How many songs come up when you search for "you"?: 436

I refuse to tag anyone, but if you're up for it, play along!
