Put your MP3 player on shuffle, and write down the first line of the first twenty songs. Post the poem that results.


Breathe in, breathe out, breathe in
You fight me
Well I loved my Aunt
I've told you this once before

Falling victim to neglect
I try to keep my faith alive
You were the girl that changed my world
Words fall from my mouth
Happiness is just a word to me
Memories consume

Do we know how to get the message across
You crawled away from me
I walk alone, think of home
What do I do to ignore them behind me?
Don't say you can't
I don't know anything at all

I know that life is empty and you hate to face this world alone
Yes, so the message goes
When the little things are tearing you apart
What was it like to see


I admit, I skipped things that weren't in English.

Swiped from [livejournal.com profile] morganalilith:

Go to Pop Culture Madness (http://www.popculturemadness.com/Music/Pop-Modern/2006.html) and select the year you became 18. Snip the top 50 songs (or however many may be there) from the list and paste the list in your journal. Bold the ones you like, strike the ones you dislike, italicize the ones you know but don't care one way or another, and leave the ones you don't know as plain text.

Apparently I didn't dislike any of them. )

Set to Tool's Lateralus, loaded with series spoilers for Fullmetal Alchemist.

I've been having issues with last.fm for about the last week. Playing music at their site often breaks up and loses connection (which doesn't happen with Pandora) and the same happens when I use their client. Additionally, I sometimes get an error where they say there is no more material in collection when I give it an artist to start from.

Step 1: Put your MP3 player or whatever on random.
Step 2: Post the first line from the first 25 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song
Step 3: Post and let everyone you know guess what song and artist the lines come from.
Step 4: Strike out the songs when someone guesses correctly.
Step 5: No cheating.

Cut for length. )

And wow, why do I have some of those?! *checks* Ah, that explains it. *needs to prune the collection*

Anyone that gets 13 needs a medal or something, I know the lyric only because I looked it up.

I'm not the sort of person that has any success at starting LJ "memes" but maybe some of you will jump into this.

  1. I'm going to post some songs that I literally cannot listen to enough.
  2. If you're game, you will download one or more of them and have a listen.
  3. Then you will recommend some music from your collection that you think I might like based on that song. You don't need to upload anything if you don't want to, but please include enough information so I can find it myself (artist, title, and album would be nice.)
  4. If you post the same in your journal, I promise to download and try to recommend stuff to you in return.

Pick one! (Or more, I'm always up for more music.)

Steve Conte - Call Me, Call Me (from Cowboy Bebop's OST3, composed by Yoko Kanno, get the OSTs, they're awesome)
Mai Yamane - Got to Knock a Little Harder (also from Cowboy Bebop, Tank! The Best! CD)
Kenny Wayne Shepard - Blue on Black (from the Trouble Is CD)

Totally fannish edit to add: I so want to see a good Naruto AMV with Team 7 and Call Me; Naruto and Sakura toward Sasuke.

Because Sierna has instrument lust for Waterphones.

Something that sounds like her beloved aeolian harps, chimes, and the wind blowing through the canyon? She wants it. (She doesn't know what whales are or what they sound like, but there's a significant amount of whale song in the sound of the thing.)

Well she's heading east, probably along the coast, I'm sure I can arrange for her to encounter one of these things. :)

Current music downloaded from the website linked above.

Of course, with my friends list I'm probably the last person to know about this site.

"The Freesound Project is a collaborative database of Creative Commons licensed sounds. Freesound focuses only on sound, not songs."

Interesting what you can find when you put "windchime mp3" into Google.

*goes back to making a playlist for her NaNo writing*

Is it crappy covers day on Pandora or something? Every third song to come up for me today has been a bad cover of a song I actually like (or in one notable case, Madonna doing a crappy remix of one of her own songs.)
