The iInspiration Mutant Meme

i am the worst meme replier, answerer responder-er.
I think it’s because I think way too much about it but this might be one I can actually do without hurting my brain too much. Amuirin morphed this one from a post by Bibliomom. Here goes the iTunes-kyped meme.

How many total songs in your iTunes?

Sort by song title – first and last…
A.D.D.I.D.A.S. (Korn) to Young (Nickel Creek)

Sort by time – shortest and longest…

Sort by Album – first and last…
At the Point (live) by Matt Nathanson to 10,000 by Tool

Sort by Artist – first and last…
Alice in Chains through The Wailin Jennys

Top 8 played songs…
this was a surprise, the top 8 were all from the Duhks’ debut album.
But the most played from that album was:

Which of these would you dance to?

So… the video I would dance to is below. Love by The Sundays.

Oh, how I love Harriet Wheeler!

Amuirin!… to the dance floor please!

  1. Wow, other than the Matt Nathanson stuff, I hadn’t heard of any of these. I was really surprised by my most played too, they definitely weren’t the same as my current favorites.

    *puts dancing shoes on*

  2. Anna Hutto is a singer/songwriter I found on a site called FolkAlley. That’s also where I found Jennifer Sherrill, who I’ve become online friends with. Her songwriting prowess is absolutely amazing.

    Let’s see, who else might you not have heard of… The Sundays never really gained huge popularity in the states although some. They were pretty strong in the lat 80s and early 90s and then Harriet and her husband/guitarist just stopped. They wanted a “normal” life and to have kids and be a family. They (the band as a whole) never really pursued fame. They’re probably the better for it.

    Let’s see… oh, The Hudsons are a great band out of Austin that has had mostly regional success.

    And the duet Andi and i are out of Chicago. I heard them here at a little pub I go to. Wonderful harmonies.

    Weird to have those folkies set against Korn and Tool, huh. 🙂

  3. yeah, you’ve got some highly eclectic tastes!

    I’m gonna check out Anna Hutto, see if I can find some of her stuff.

  4. Hey, I wanted to thank you for sharing that tune on splashcast. I’ve listened to it a couple times. I found it very comforting on a dark night.

  5. I love seeing what other people are listening to and I really like how Amuirin kicked this up a notch.

  6. OK, I’ll bite. I’ll post my meme results on the blog a little later today. Bear with me – my right hand is still misbehaving (sliced tips of ring and middle finger and just got stitches removed) so typing is a bit slow.

  7. Hey Melongirl…. glad you’re playing along with this one. I’m curious to see what kind of stuff a girl plays in the symphony has on her iTunes. Sorry to hear about you fingers. How the heck did you do that?! At least it isn’t the hand the wiggles the valves on your french horn.

  9. Whoa, I’m famous. How’d ya do that? I’m still a total Blog newbie and I have lots of questions about this stuff.

    I cut my fingers picking up a broken pyrex dish. Whoops! I still don’t have as much feeling in those fingers as I’d like to, but it’s improving… just gotta keep my fingers out of those strange places, muwhahaha!
