Taggy goodness.

Music is my #3 favorite thing ever, so of course I'm excited about this taggy-post from the lovely and stupendous Tiffany. So, I'm supposed to list the Top 10 Songs in my iTunes library...

Okay, so I don't use iTunes and will probably never use iTunes. I don't even know what's so great about it (or care). My excuse for a long time was that I don't have a Mac (yet), but now I know you can use iTunes whether you have a Mac or PC, so that excuse is out the window.

My new excuse: I don't like music organizers. I make the rules, damnit.

Anyway, so I'm gonna bring up one of my all-time-greatest-songs mixes in WinAmp (yeah, that's right, WinAmp. How can you use anything else?) and list the top Songs from that instead.

Tiffany posted her top 25 though, so I think I'll post 25 too. Mostly because it's super hard for me to narrow it down to my favorites.

I'm also supposed to list them in Song - Artist - Album format, which is going to be hard because, uhm, I have to Google most of these to find that out. (yeah yeah I know if I used iTunes it would do all that crap for me. shut it.)

And, because I'm a visual person, I thought I'd add some pics that I googled. Then I felt extremely old because some of the bands I listen to look 5-10 years younger than me. And I'm only 23.

  1. Done Wrong - Ani DiFranco - Dilate
  2. All Hail the Heartbreaker - The Spill Canvas - Sunsets and Car Crashes
  3. Take Me Anywhere - Tegan and Sara - So Jealous
  4. It's Cool, We Can Still Be Friends - Bright Eyes - Transmission One: Tea at the Palaz of Hoon
  5. Combat Baby - Metric - Old World Underground, Where Are You Now?
  6. Probably - Kevin Devine - Split the Country, Split the Street
  7. Spanish Doll - Poe - Haunted
  8. Waste of Paint - Bright Eyes - Lifted or The Story is in the Soil, Keep Your Ear to the Ground - [see above photo]
  9. I Wasn't Prepared - Eisley - Room Noises
  10. Ever So Sweet - The Early November - The Room's Too Cold
  11. I Don't Miss You Anymore - Lisa Ekdahl - Sings Salvadore Poe (Bonus track)
  12. Sitting, Waiting, Wishing - Jack Johnson - Sitting, Waiting, Wishing
  13. Winter - Tori Amos - Little Earthquakes
  14. Calling You - Blue October - History for Sale
  15. Brightest - Copeland - Beneath the Medicine Tree
  16. Here I Am - Tegan and Sara - Unreleased/Live - [see above photo]
  17. Forget December - Something Corporate - Songs for Silent Movies

  25. Spawn - Silverchair - Neon Ballroom

Whoa, that's way too many photos. Good luck loading this page.

If you don't know any of these bands, you are severely depriving yourself of some really great music. You're probably too busy listening to crap on the radio that you've forgotten there are real bands out there in this world.

(And yes, I'm a music snob. but I'm a closet music snob, which means I pretend I'm not a snob most of the time and when it's completely appropriate I break out with a "WHAT IS THAT CRAP YOU'RE LISTENING TO?" and also I never admit my music guilty pleasures... you would be a bit suprised, I think.)

That's it. I'm done with the music taggy post. I tag... uhm. Everyone who reads my blog has already been tagged by Tiffany. So, I tag everyone else. That's right, that means you Missy. :)


Missy said...

well that was nice of tiffany to leave you someone to tag!

and also, what are the #1 and #2 things?

tiffany said...

missy: for the record, i only left you out of my tag because i knew that jen would have no one to tag if i tagged you.

i am seriously considerate.

jen: dude. i love poe--you can't talk to a psycho like a normal human being, after all.
and i also love tori.

and you're not bad, either.

"You're probably too busy listening to crap on the radio that you've forgotten there are real bands out there in this world."

Amen. I used to be a producer for a top FM radio station. It sickened me to listen to the crap that we put out on the air, and I was glad when I left that job so I wouldn't have to pretend anymore.

Looks like the Internet is making old-world radio a useless medium. Good.

I like your taste in music, BTW. Very eclectic and fun. Sounds like you like your music because you like it, not because everyone else does. Nicely put.

I agree with Carmi, I love the range of your music. It is eclectic and show that you are willing to try new and different things.

I have heard of Tori and Blue October. I will have to find those other songs to see how they sound. I can probably find them on iTunes. Yes I have an iPod.

Mikala said...

Alrighty, well, I'm pretty certain I've only heard of maybe 3 of those artists, so I'm starting to feel like a music reject!
