A-Z Music Meme

OK, I wasn't tagged, but I saw this when investigating a Wordpress theme.

Simple idea. Open up your Music Library in your media player. Sort alphabetically by track and put up the first track for each letter without duplicating artists.

This is me:
  1. Absence by Ancient Drive (from "Unknown")

  2. Baba O'Riley by The Who (from "My Generation: The Very Best Of The Who")

  3. Cable TV by Weird Al Yankovic (from "Dare To Be Stupid")

  4. D.O.A. by Van Halen (from "Van Halen II")

  5. E-Bow The Letter by R.E.M. (from "In Time: The Best Of R.E.M. 1988-2003")

  6. F-19 by Men At Work (from "Business as Usual")

  7. Games Without Frontiers by Peter Gabriel (from "Shaking the Tree: Sixteen Golden Greats")

  8. Hair Of The Dog by Guns N' Roses (from "The Spaghetti Incident")

  9. I by Black Sabbath (from "Dehumanizer")

  10. Jack-A-Lynn by Jethro Tull (from "20 Years of Jethro Tull")

  11. Keechie by No Age (from "Nouns")

  12. La Bible by ApologetiX (from "Spoofernatural")

  13. Ma-Ma-Ma Belle by Electric Light Orchestra (from "All Over The World: The Very Best Of ELO")

  14. Naked In Front Of The Computer by Faith No More (from "Album Of The Year")

  15. Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da by The Beatles (from "The Beatles")

  16. Paca Nokt' by Akordo (from "Kristnaska Kordo")

  17. Queen Anne's Revenge by Flogging Molly (from "Within a Mile of Home")

  18. R.I.P. (Millie) by Noiseworks (from "Love Versus Money")

  19. Safe European Home by The Clash (from "The Essential Clash")

  20. Tainted Love by Soft Cell (from "The Very Best of Soft Cell")

  21. U Can't Touch This by MC Hammer (from "The Best Singles Of All Time")

  22. Valley of Tears by Robert Plant & The Soweto Gospel Choir (from "Goin' Home: A Tribute to Fats Domino")

  23. Wait for the Promise by Aaron Jeoffrey (from "Very Best of Aaron Jeoffrey")

  24. X Offender by Blondie (from "Blondie: The Platinum Collection")

  25. Yahweh Love by Petra (from "Petrafied: The Best of Petra")

  26. Zero by Evanescence (from "Special German Import 2004")
I think this is a reasonable representation of my music library. Most of my top 10 bands are represented. As are some of the random tracks I've collected from mp3 blogs or bought off ITMS because I read a good review in the paper as well as few that I got from compilation cds or soundtracks. Nothing I'm too embarrassed to show here (except perhaps MC Hammer *grins*)

OK, the idea is to "tag" three more people to do this. This is a bit trick, because I'm not really on speaking terms with too many other people with a suitable site for publishing. But here we go anyway.

Tagging:
  • Jason Power (who has no site, I'm emailing you, add yours in the comments here)

  • Greg Cresp (does Live Journal track incoming links?)

  • Megan @ Melodic Insomniac. Sorry, you don't know me, but I've been watching your NaNoWriMo posts and you seem to be the musical type, so this might appeal.
