Sort by song title:
first song: "...and carrot rope" by pavement

sort by time
shortest: "One Last 'Whoo-hoo' for the Pullman" Sufjan Stevens (six seconds)
Longest (not counting tv episodes; yes, I am an itunes nerd): "Blue Milk" by Stereolab (24 minutes!)

sort by album
first: "'Round About Midnight" Miles Davis
Last: "Ziggy Stardust" David Bowie

1. We Just Won't Be Defeated - The Go! Team (I listen to this song every morning. It makes me want to kick, punch, and kick.)
2. Eu Vim Da Bahia - Stan Getz
3. Agua De Beber - Tom Jobim (yeah, I like bossanova. what's it to ya, bub??)
4. Such Great Heights - the Postal Service (jeez, that's embarrassing. What am I, 14? *listens to it again*)
5. Loro - Pinback (I wish my life sounded like this song)

songs about sex: 7

also, when Kim says that the first song on itunes is '84 by the Champs, she means '84 by the Fucking Champs. That's right, Kim listens to a band called the Fucking Champs.



It's a metal band.




I am not making this up.

hey, i do not argue. i am now embarrassed to note that everyone else's taste in music is cooler than my own.

i just thank god bo bice didn't show up in these questions. I'd hate for anyone to know about that ...wait.

Kim said...

Okay, a few things. So yeah, I wasn't aware of the Champs' other moniker, thanks for um, pointing that out, Phil. :)

Secondly, let me validate you a little, Chad. I'm a certified American Idol fanatic and I love Bo Bice. I even went to see him in concert and he was ill and couldn't perform, oh the words that came out of my mouth at that realization seem to mirror the Champs' name. My poor sister took the brunt of my cursing.

Sorry about the posting twice thing. I'm extremely impatient and seem to have hit the button twice.

And yes, the Elephant Sneeze is a jungle sound effect and, thankfully I haven't listened to Clay Aiken lately, I don't think I could live that one down.

Chad Grayson said...

i do not have any Clay Aiken, thank god.
