The Musical Baton

The "musical baton" has been passed from many people ( interesting to follow the links back) and now from Ilike to me.

Total volume on my computer
I have no idea how to find this information out? Why would it be of interest to anyone beats me!

The last CD I bought.
I rarely buy new ones but mostly get them from boot sales or charity shops. The last one I bought I think was this boxed set from the Booksale shop that I've featured some tracks from already in my blog. It's called Beautiful Country Memories on the Flex-Media label. £14.99 for 20 Cd's!

Song playing right now.
I can't type and listen to music at the same time but if I should stop I would probably be listening to the Planxty CD I borrowed from the library. Two sample tracks can be found below.

Five songs I listen to a lot or mean a lot to me
Impossible to narrow it down to five but for the sake of this blog will upload my current favourites which you will find below.

Five people to whom I'm passing on the baton.
Sorry, but I had to choose somebody!

1. Swapatorium
2. Searching For Blue Sea Glass
3. Sylvia Sometimes
4. Groc's Bloggette
5. Ed's Blog

Thanks for that. I'll pass it on...

Did you see the Fall on Jools Holland? I can't say I was impressed. Especially by the silly act of defiance at the end.

Gosh that was quick Roger! I was going to send an e-mail to warn you of the Baton coming your way!
I enjoyed the Fall on Later but I agree it did seem a bit silly to put on that "anarchic" front and be especially mumbly and incoherent - more than usual that is!

Ed Giecek said...

I guess I don't quite know how this works? What is it I am to be passing on? Can you help out a poor dense American?

michael said...

Its quite deceptively simple really Ed. All you do is copy all the 5 questions out as I've done and put your own answers in adding links to the people you are passing on the baton to at the bottom. If you click on the links going back you can see that everyone has more or less done the same thing. Some have added mp3's and others just links to labels and band websites etc. Its up to you really.

Calm down Roger! Quick someone throw a bucket of water over him!
Glad to see the musical baton was a big success! ha ha!

Roger Stevens said...

I shall be passing the baton on soon - don't worry. Just as soon as I get out of these wet clothes.

Groc said...

er... I've already done that meme once.... I'm not doing it again.

and i find i don't listen to music that much these days anyway - I've piles of cds lying around i haven't got around to listening to yet. I'm sure hours are shorter than they used to be.


michael said...

Nevermind Groc - my fault - I should have remembered you doing it as I'd read it at the time. My memory is getting worse!
It's funny isn't it with all this new technology and ipods and downloading from the net etc. that real interest in music has dumbed down so much. One has only to look at the new No.1 in the charts to see that! Ring-tones as the future ofmusic- gawd help us!
