So, music has been on my mind as of late.
The Dad introduced me to a new radio station that I love.more.than.anything.in.the.world.
It's 91.7 here in Dallas, and I am listening to that almost exclusively. They play Freelance Whales, The Weepies, Dr. Dog, Gomez, and several other obscure bands, mixed in with some older stuff like Bob Dylan and Janis Joplin, and even some not-so-old stuff such as John Mayer and Amos Lee
Today, I spent the day reorganizing my iTunes. When I had to reinstall thanks to the new image, I found all of the places where my music is hidden, and transferred them all to my new iTunes. Where I discovered duplicates, triplicates, and quadruplicates of some songs. Today, I deleted the unnecessary songs, and got back to my original music base: 3500+ songs, covering a wide variety of genres and lasting 8.5 days if played continuously. I discovered some delicious music I'd forgotten was on my list, and playlists dating back to 2005.
While checking Face to the Book, I also discovered this fun little game I've seen before but never played along with. Today, I'm doing it.
Here are the rules:
1. Put your iTunes, Windows Media Player, etc. on shuffle.
2. For each question, press the next button to get your answer.
3. You must write the song name down no matter how silly it sounds. (Yeah, I broke this rule real fast. See * and ** below)
If someone says "you're okay" you say:
"We've All Got Our Reasons" by Pat Green
How would you describe yourself?
"Wonderful" by Gary Go (seriously- everyone should hear this song and feel good about themselves...)
What do you like in a girl/guy?
"Happier" by A Fine Frenzy
How do you feel?
"Breathless" by The Corrs
** It should be noted that this is where I realized that my iTunes were not on shuffle, and had to go back and redo all the other answers!

Feel free to play along!
* Chose a different song to represent a different artist: I would have had the same few artists showing up several times during this if I didn't.
***also, since this was taken from one of my teenagers posts, almost everything was written in all caps. I retyped it so as not to be shouting at you. You're welcome.
