rock around the clock

I came home sorta prepared to write up my kindle review but now feeling less into it. Plus I’ve just downloaded the new kindle software update and want to include my experience of that, and how it goes. Not up for fiddling this evening. A meme instead, stolen from elsewhere.

1. Open your library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, iPod, etc)
2. Put it on shuffle
3. Press play
4. For every question, type the song that’s playing
5. When you go to a new question, press the next button
6. Don’t lie and try to pretend you’re cool!

Opening Credits: Give It A Whirl – Split Enz [now that is an awesome start]
Waking Up: Because We Can – Fatboy SLim [oh my]
First Day At School: Dirty Creature – Split Enz
Falling In Love: Heroes – David Bowie
Fight Song: No Line on the Horizon – U2
Breaking Up: Do You See What I See? – Hunters and Collectors [ouch!]
Prom: All Good Generals – Dakoda Motor Co.
Life: Afro-Left – Leftfield [the song rocks as does the album, Leftism, but don’t think the title works in this context]
Mental Breakdown: 6/8 War – Leftfield [oh dear]
Driving: Spike Morse Code – Infusion
Flashback: Under Pressure – Queen & David Bowie
Getting Back Together: Rocket Queen – Guns N’ Roses [ewwww]
Wedding: Hot Chilli Woman – Noiseworks [now that, is funny]
Birth of Child: Bring Me To Life – Evanescence [winner!]
Final Battle: 33% God – Beastie Boys [C|N>K]
Death Scene: Midlife Crisis – Faith No More [yeah, that works as a form of death
Funeral Song: Wail – Split Enz [oh my]
Remembrance Song: Money Talks – AC/DC
End Credits: Manic Monday – The Bangles

Now there’s an odd hodge-podge indeed. Some work rather too well and some don’t work at all. Been that sort of day really. My musical tastes have changed so many times over the years with the bulk of material on the ipod representing older periods, not to mention the sort of music I like to play when I need to pace. Mostly these days, I’m into choirs and orchestras but have dabbled over the years with metal and thrash and punk and disco and techno, not to mention good old aussie pub rock and top 40 stuff. I’ve never been fond of ballads and have a preference for stuff with a higher BPM. The faster the better, which was particularly pertinent for 80s thrash…and then again for 90s industrial.
