That Music Meme

Buaya69 sticked me with this. So, here goes:

1. What is the total amount of music files on your computer?

I listen to all kinds of stuff which attributes to the 5.1GB and 1,377 songs on my PC. From Elvis to Eminem, from the Righteous Brothers to the Allman Brothers to the Doobie Brothers to the Isley Brothers, from U2, US3 to UB40, from Hot Chocolate to Coldplay, from Fastball to good ol' slowhand, from Glass Tiger to White Lion, from Bach to Beck, from Bread to Cake. I've got Prince, I've got Queen and I've got Kings, Gypsy Kings that is. I've got Byrds, Eagles, Penguins and Crows - of the Counting variety. I've got the men - Baha Men, Men At Work and Men Without Hats. And I've got Four Aces, Seasons, Tops and Non-Blondes. From Boy George to George Michael to Michael Jackson to Jackson Browne. From the Idea of North to the Beautiful South. I've got Pink, I've got Blue (don't ask), I've got Green Day, I've got Deep Purple, I've got Whitesnake and I've got Black Eyed Peas. And yes, Buaya, I have plenty of Nursery Rhymes too!

2. The CD you last bought?

These days, almost everything we buy we buy for Baby. Our last CD would be Baby Loves Hymns - which I gotta say is one worthwhile investment since Jesse seems to like it. Besides, it's a kiddie CD that doesn't sound cheesy or annoying!It was either that or some other Nursery Rhyme CD.

3. What was the last song you listened to before reading this message?

"You Will Be My Ain True Love" by Alison Krauss which is a track from Cold Mountain, a movie I never saw. The song is a haunting Irish melody that kinda grows on you. :)

4. Write down five songs that you often listen to or that means a lot to you

"Don't Dream It's Over" by Crowded House, though I also like to play the version by Sixpence None The Richer.

"Drift Away" by the Doobie Brothers.

"As The Deer" by Acoustic Worship which gives a nice unplugged makeover for this wonderful hymn.

"Warisan Wanita Terakhir" by Teacher's Pet, simply because it's a damn good song.

"Where Do I Begin" by Shirley Bassey featuring the AwayTEAM Mix. Mae and I made our grand entrance to this tune during our wedding reception. It would be the song that would epitomise the kind of people that we were. Most people just thought we were nuts. :)

5. Who are you going to pass this stick to (3 persons) and why?

Gina gets it cos I think she listens to soppy stuff. AhPink also gets it just because she's a new kid (*ahem*) on the blog! And finally, hasn't anybody ever wondered what kind of music a serious guy like Jeff Ooi listens to? Other than Scorpions, of course. And does he even have time for trivial stuff like this? :) And will he even stumble upon this blog?

We'll let's see what happens.


  1. hmmm hmmm ...i think i'll steal this entry for my blog as well ^^.
    anyway i have heard 3/4 of the artist which you have posted up on question 1, my fave band on the list is Queen >

  2. Eh, what happened to Gypsy King?

  3. kewll... such vast diff genre kekeke

  4. James.. me recommend you go to my blogsite.. read Revival and Revival Updates.. :) maybe you can recommend some songs since you're an 80's buff.. :)

  5. Good choice, Leo!
    What do you mean, AhPink?
    Wait till you actually listen to my stuff BabeKL!
    Paulos, I actually read that sometime back but realised that I didn't know many songs that would be considered wedding-friendly. :) I will try again though!

  6. you stick'd JeffOoi? :lol: ya, let's see shall we? ;)

  7. BLUE?!?!?!?!!!
    All rise, all rise.... and whatever other nonsense they spew. Seriously, these folks need some assistance in the lyrics department...
    Do you have Morcheeba, Thievery Corporation and Zero 7? Was told these are very good "mood" music, nudge nudge wink wink

  8. Gosh.. I don't know who sang the songs most of the time and I don't bother to know also... till I totally dig it.

  9. Hahhah... Buaya! Habuk pun tarak!!
    Good choice Husband. Now, to get in the mood. Ehhehh....
    Typical of you Gina! :)

  10. The songs are not really wedding friendly. Ha ha! We have a ROCK wedding Band. Muahahaha!
    The weirdest song we ever played/sang at a wedding was "Against All Odds" by Phil Collins
    Thinking of doing "Another One Bites The Dust" by Queen. Appropriate? No? ha ha ha
    We're gonna add some love songs in it..
