    People freak out when they look at my playlists/music library.

    I think it's because I'm a musician, but it could also be genetics. I was raised listening to music. My dad has played guitar since before I was born. As a child, the only way to get me to take a nap was to give me my playskool tape player and have me listen to some music. I grew up listening to jimmy buffet, the eagles, the nitty gritty dirt band, marcia ball, bonnie raitt, eric clapton, and about a million other artists. When I was in kindergarten, the teacher would play some station when we were supposed to be napping, and I would be wide awake singing along.

    So I think it's safe to say that music is a big thing in my life.

    I'd like to get a feel of my other RJers music tastes. Howsabout we take ten or fifteen random tracks from our libraries and post them, and see what pops up. Maybe someone you've misjudged will have something in common with you!

    I'll go first:
    The Fire - Reel Big Fish
    Tarot - Yngwie Malmsteen's Rising Force
    Tired Eyes - Neil Young
    I am the Walrus - Frank Zappa
    Say What - Stevie Ray Vaughn and Double Trouble
    Enemy - Jack Johnson
    Jungle Man - Red Hot Chili Peppers
    Panama - Van Halen
    Mandy - Me First and the Gimme Gimmes
    Stand and be counted - Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young
    Rapid City, South Dakota - Kinky Friedman
    Terra Nova - James Taylor
    Mountain Cry - Blues Traveler
    Willie and the Hand Jive - Eric Clapton
    Great Midwest - John Mellencamp




    I'm actually surprised that the only Metalish stuff to show up was Yngwie. I have a couple discographies of some metal bands and sometimes get the same band two or three times in a row on shuffle. icon_razz.gif

    And still, Yngwie is an awesome guitar player, but there's a lot more "metal" than that ;)

    I hear you on the "music has always been part of my life", in every specific moment. My father grew into a family of musicians, and there would always be music playing in the house. I have a video of myself at 2 years old dancing and "singing" along to Little Richard - Tutti Frutti, which was my favorite song ever at the time (you can tell as I'm death-screaming along with the "Wam Babelouba bedam bam boom")

    Great playlist though, pretty rockish, not a lot of recent stuff.

    I shuffled on my WMP playlist and here are the 15 first track that I got :

    White Feather - Wolfmother
    Perhaps Vampires is a Bit Strong But - Arctic Monkeys
    Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd
    Fix the Wold Up for You - James Morrison
    Lost and Found - Phoenix
    Sulfur - Slipknot
    Your Ex-Lover is Dead - Stars
    Army of Me - Björk
    Come on Sister - Belle & Sebastian
    Little Beard - Imogen Heap
    Flynn - Ratatat
    Paparazzi (Stuart Price's Remix) - Lady Gaga
    Danger Line - Avenged Sevenfold
    Impossible Soul - Sufjan Stevens
    We Are Rockstars - Does It Offend You, Yeah?

    No kidding. The only thing I listen to outside the classic realm is Tori really.
