I've seen a number of different versions of a playlist meme, and have been meaning to do one for a while. Here, for your entertainment, are my favorite lines out of the songs currently on my playlist. If anyone decides to play name-that-tune, I'll put up answers after a while.

The lyrics. )

In my ongoing quest to rediscover all the parts of myself that I've lost in the last few years, I've been trying to listen to more music. I have a fairly large CD collection, and I'm most of the way through ripping it to MP3 (for the second time in most cases, as I'm still recovering from the hard drive failure in July). After that, I want to attempt a project that's been on my mind for a number of years, and get all the songs I need to replicate my many mix tapes.

What has replaced the mix tape in the modern world? Do you burn a CD? Share an Itunes playlist? I doubt that the basic urge to say it with music is dead. I've had the beginnings of a mix tape brewing in the back of my head for several days. I know I came to popular music late, but surely I'm not alone in this.

I was one of those people who made mix tapes for other people, too. I made at least one for Melissa, and copied others for her. I made one for [ profile] oidhche, and another one after we broke up. [ profile] turtle_morn and I made a tape for driving together, and I did several other driving mixes thereafter. And a lot of people have copies of the tape [ profile] livianne and S made with the help of S's father's sound equipment. I'd really love to get that one on CD, but as it involved recordings of them singing, it's a little beyond my abilities. (And yes, [ profile] ourika, I remember I promised to copy it for you.)

Come to think of it, perhaps it's not as basic an urge as I thought. I would imagine it would have been difficult to make a mix record. And only the very wealthy could pull off a live mix performance. On the other hand, do you think that may have been the reason for nobles to hire court bards?

Bands // Song Titles brought to you by BZOINK!

And now a couple of questions they didn't ask that came to mind as I was skimming a list of song titles:

Whose journal made me decide to do this particular meme: Andy
Which song title from this band would he want to use: Prince Of Darkness
Which title did I want to use but just didn't fit: Pushing The Needle Too Far
How do I feel about my mom's TMI: I Don't Wanna Know

It gets more like RHPS callbacks after that, so I'll stop, but it's certainly food for thought.
