MEME - On the subject of muzak
1. What is the total amount of music files on your computer?
Alot. More than a thousand if you count those I burnt on CDs and in my office PC. (Hey it's still MY computer). But actually I only listen to probably 5% of the entire collection. I am a pack rat. When it comes to dowloading mp3s, I suffer from border compulsive-obssessive disorder. It doesn't matter if I don't listen to Deftones or Gerschwin, if it's there I'll download all the same.2. The CD you last bought?
Hmm. That's a tough one for a pirated music supporter. Okay. Jay Chou - Qi Li Xiang
. And still it's a pirated CD.
3. What was the last song you listened to before reading this message?Speedy ft. Lumidee - Sientelo
. It's gorgeous in a mad, ecstasy-laden, open-air rave party way.
4. Write down five songs that you often listen to or that means a lot to you
Wishful Thinking (Duncan Sheik)
- I love melancholic songs and noone does it better than Duncan Sheik. His songs have their own dark, deep appeal. I don't know, but I listen to this song when I'm sad or frustrated and I do not feel better. Instead, I can identify with the song. On a linear note, this song is from the movie soundtrack of Great Expectations and Ethan Hawke makes great eye-candy.
Can't Stop (Red Hot Chili Peppers)
- When I broke up with Tae, I listened to this song day and night. I didn't cry. I just curled up in bed and set this track on "repeat" and listened to the senseless lyrics and awesome guitar rifts and slowly I picked myself up again.
Got What You Need (Eve ft. Drag On) - Zul does a really wicked dance to this song. He's a mah-ve-llous dancer with a mah-ve-llous-ly tight arse.
1979 (Smashing Pumpkins)

- This is the anthem of youth. This song makes me want to be 16 again, sneak out when my parents are asleep, hot-wire a car, go to a mad house party, get drunk, and make out with a stranger in the next-door neightbour's pool. Oh yes, and we'll toilet paper all the trees.Don't Look Back In Anger (Oasis)
& Beetlebum (Blur)
- Sorry, I just couldn't choose between these 2 songs, I cheated a little by sticking them together. Ahh... the magic of Britpop. DLBIA was the first song I learned on the guitar. Beetlebum was the first Blur song I heard. And I worshipped Damon Albarn for a long, long time.
The kids in my dad's era had The Beatles. We had Oasis and Blur. I'm so fucking proud of the Brits. God save the Queen.
