    22 Johann Sebastian Bach
    24 Savage Garden
    25 Joe Firstman

    Now answer the questions according to the numbers:

    1. What was the first song you ever heard by 6?
    I have two at #6, I'll pick Aaron for this. It must've been Oh Aaron.

    2. What is your favorite album by 2?
    Robbie Williams: I'd say... probably Life Thru a Lens because that was the album that made me realize I really liked his songs.

    3. What is your favorite lyric that 1 has sung?
    Backstreet Boys: [laughs] I don't know! Oh my goodness. I haven't really thought about it before, because I'm terrible at remembering lyrics. No one is glamorously lonely I guess.

    4. How many times have you seen 11 live?
    I have two for #11, I'll pick The Who: I've never seen them live.

    5. What is your favorite song by 7?
    I guess now I have to pick the other #6 artist, which is Händel. I don't have a favorite, and I'm frankly pretty puzzled how Händel's even so high up on the list!

    6. What is a good memory you have involving 20?
    I have two for #20 too! Picking JC Chasez, it'd probably be seeing him a couple of times at Challenge for the Children. :)

    7. Is there a song by 3 that makes you sad?
    *NSYNC: Yeah, but not necessarily because the song is that sad. It's mostly because of what the song means to me personally.

    8. What is your favorite song by 19?
    Hanson: Lost Without Each Other. Also, Dying To Be Alive.

    9. How did you get into 22?
    I have two for #22... so let's pick J.S. Bach: my mother likes all kinds of music, including classical. Bach is one of her favorites, and growing up I'd hear it all the time.

    10. What was the first song you heard by 21?
    This would be the other #20, Johnny Cash: Walk The Line.

    11. What is your favorite song by 4?
    Tony Lucca: Twenty Something (Same Old).

    12. How many times have you seen 10 live?
    The other one I have for #11 is Vivaldi: Well. Vivaldi was a bit before my time, don't you think? [laughs] And of course he's a composer, not a performer. I've heard his pieces performed several times in my life, though.

    13. What is a good memory you have involving 13?
    John Mayer: Your Body Is a Wonderland makes me think of old friends.

    14. Is there a song by 23 that makes you sad?
    Since I had two for #22, this is the other one, Kane: Not really.

    15. What is your favorite album by 15?
    Kansas: I've only heard one, which is their The Best of Kansas album. So that one. :)

    16. What is your favorite lyric that 9 have sung?
    Justin Timberlake: Try to change what you can
    And accept all the things that you cannot


    17. What is your favorite song by 8?
    Britney Spears: Stronger, I think.

    18. What is your favorite song by 16?
    I have three for #16, so I'll just pick the first one listed, which is Howard Shore. I think that would be Concerning Hobbits.

    19. How many times have you seen 5 live?
    Michael Bublé: Never.

    20. What is your favorite album by 12?
    AC/DC: Back in Black. (I know, how surprising, right?)

    21. What is a good memory you have involving 25?
    Joe Firstman: I don't really have any specific good memories, other than that I got The War of Women from a friend during my first visit to the States, which is a great memory in itself.

    22. What was the first song you heard by 18?
    This falls into the category "one of the #16 ones" so I'll just go down the list in order again. The Doors: Hello, I Love You.

    23. What is your favorite album by 24?
    Savage Garden: Savage Garden.

    24. What was the first song you heard by 14?
    Frank Sinatra: Y'know, I don't really remember. Sinatra's one of those singers who you hear pretty much everywhere randomly during your entire life, so. :P

    25. What is your favorite lyric that 17 have sung?
    That leaves the last in the group of three for #16, Christina Aguilera: Though I'm sure it's a cliché by now, We are beautiful in every single way
  • How Mainstream Am I?

    28 nov. 2006, 16h09m

    Go through your top 10 artists and add up the total number of listeners. Divide that number by 10; this is the average number of listeners for your top ten. Now divide the average by the number of Beatles fans (The Beatles is the artists with the most listeners). Multiply the result by 100--that is your "mainstream percentage".

    1. Backstreet Boys 82,128
    2. *NSYNC 54,238
    3. Robbie Williams 156,174
    4. Aaron Carter 7,057
    5. Georg Friedrich Händel 32,915
    5. Michael Bublé 58,240
    7. Tony Lucca 487
    8. Britney Spears 150,793
    9. Antonio Vivaldi 53,842
    10. Justin Timberlake 138,814

    = 734,688 listeners / 10 = 73 468,8 average number of listeners for my top ten

    Beatles fans: 435,908 total listeners

    73468,8/435,908 = 0,169 x 100 = 16,9%

    RESULT: I am 16,9% mainstream.



    ...I'm seriously starting to wonder if I did this right. :P

    EDIT! Thanks for correcting me, xuelee. :) 16,9% makes a lot more sense than 145! [laughs] :)

    06. Who does #38 remind you of?
    Oddly enough, Nick Stokes. Ahahaha. Though it goes through Kill Bill through Quentin Tarantino through the CSI episode Grave Danger to Nick. Though I suppose I should say Quentin Tarantino, too. It doesn't remind me of anyone I know personally.

    07. Does #20 have better lyrics or music?
    I like the music better. I never actually paid much attention to the lyrics before.

    08. Do any of your friends like #3?

    09. Is #33 from a movie soundtrack?
    Nope, but they did play Like I Love You in the movie Love Actually. But this is a remix, so no. ;)

    #22. It's a pretty song. :)

    14. When did you first hear #39?
    When I saw Bridget Jones' Diary the first time - 2001, I guess?

    15. When did you first hear #7?

    Um. Country, or pop-country. I'm not really sure what this song counts as. It's not twangy country, at least.

    Sure! I have a bunch of friends who love the Boys. :)

    18. What color does #4 remind you of?

    Sure, why not? I like Savage Garden. It's a shame they're no more.

    25. Is #2 a good song to dance to?
    Not really, it's a bit too slow for that.

    26. Do you ever hear #16 on the radio?
    I don't really listen to radio much, but I don't think this songs gets airplay either way.

    27. Is #32 more of a "nighttime" or "daytime" song?
    Daytime, I think. :) It's got that energetic beat to it.

    28. Does #36 have any special meaning to you?
    Not really, no. It's an okay song (the original is better), but nothing specific comes to mind.

    29. Do any of your friends like #31?
    I'm not sure if they've heard it, actually.

    30. Is #25 a fast or slow song?
    It's more slow than fast, but it's not slooooooooow.

    31. Is #35 a happy or sad song?
    I'm not really sure! The melody is a little melancholy, but the lyrics aren't. Let's go with happy.

    32. What is one of your favorite lyrics from #9?
    Well. The lyrics aren't really all that meaningful, but I suppose I'll pick something...
    It’s written in the wind
    That we’re two
    Carved out in the sand
    That we’re real

    Rock Your Body, Like I Love You and Señorita.

    36. Do you know all the words to #6?
    Not by a mile. [laughs] I haven't actually listened to this album a lot though I've had it for years.

    37. Does #28 have better lyrics or music?
    Music. [g]

    38. What album is #10 from?
    Xena: Warrior Princess soundtrack. [laughs]

  • Top 5 - Charts of the week of the 25th of June to the 2nd of July, 2006

    6 jui. 2006, 12h47m

    Top 5 Artists of the Week

    #1 Backstreet Boys (42 times)
    Woohoo, Boys! (That sounds so wrong...) Aaaaanyway. I was doing iTunes organization this week, and I may have lingered when I got to the Boys, just because I don't have the heart to skip the songs. It's good music, and cheers me up! Well, it does, if I don't dwell on the whole Kevin issue too much...

    #2 Tony Lucca (25 times)
    Tony on second place, and rightly so! His songs are awesome, and though I'm usually a melody kind of a person, I find myself listening to his lyrics often, too.

    #3 Christina Aguilera (18 times)
    I rediscovered the Stripped CD and listened to it a whole lot. That's some awesome, moving music right there.

    #4 *NSYNC (15 times)
    I still say: hiatus schmiatus! The music is fun and energetic and leaves me smiling. Oh, boys. :)

    #5 Britney Spears (13 times)
    I defy the naysayers and say that Britney has fun music that has me chairboogying and singing the songs even later on.

    Top 5 Songs of the Week

    Exactly five songs had the exact same amount of times played this week, so the following five are all #1 this week.

    #1 I Love How You Love Me (3 times)
    This is just a nice, wonderful, soothing chillout song.

    #1 I'll Never Break Your Heart (3 times)
    Ironically, the song starts with Kevin talking, all low and smooth. Never break my heart, yeah right. (I'm not really this upset. Promise. ;)) This is the perfect song to sing along to and, whenever possible, overemote. [g]

    #1 Looking for a Better Way (3 times)
    At summertime, Bad To The Bone gets dug out. I'm surprised it's this song instead of Sweat, but I'm not surprised to see one of Inner Circle's songs here. ;)

    #1 Billoddity (3 times)
    Another fun chillout song. It's one of those songs that makes you wish you were on a beach somewhere in the sun.

    #1 Like I Love You (Extended Club Mix) (3 times)
    This is actually a surprise, because I don't listen to remixes that often. Oh well. Still an excellent song for chairboogying, and it's not like I mind listening to "Mr. JT". ;))
  • So here's this music quiz that I found. :)

    6 jui. 2006, 1h10m

    1. What are you listening to right now?
    Try. [chairboogies]

    2. What song makes you sad?
    Into the West, after hearing the story behind it. Wah!

    3. What is the most annoying song in the world?
    Ummm... I don't know. I can listen to a lot of songs without being annoyed, even if they're annoying. [laughs] Oh oh! Now I know. Screwed. Good lord, she does not know how to sing. :P

    4. Your all time favorite band?

  • Help with iTunes album covers!

    29 juin 2006, 18h39m

    If you're like me and have 57897897248572 songs in your iTunes library that don't have an album cover and/or an album name in the song info, I'd just like to recommend a Widget called iTunes companion. It searches, and what's more important, actually finds most album titles and covers based on the artist's name and the song title and inserts them into iTunes. And it's free! You can find the widget here!

    Anyway, I hope that's of help to other people, too. :) Back to listing! I'm just at the Bs. [g]

    ETA: One thing I forgot to mention, because of course there's a catch... If you're adding a picture to your iTunes song, last.fm won't register it for some reason. :/
  • Top 5 - Charts of the week of the 18th to the 25th of June, 2006

    27 juin 2006, 16h50m

    Top 5 Artists of the Week

    #1 Backstreet Boys (19 times)
    Well, I don't think it's hardly a surprise that I've been listening to the Boys a lot this week, especially after the news we got during the weekend. Frankly I don't think the whole business with Kevin has still sunk in. We'll see how I do when the promotion starts for the new album and there are only four of the Boys in the pictures...

    #2 Tony Lucca (11 times)
    I've been doing a lot of shuffling, so the artists that show up on this weeks list are those by whom I have the most music. Tony's just amazing, and everyone who hasn't listened to his music by now should start. :P

    #3 *NSYNC (8 times)
    *NSYNC! Yay. These boys got me really into the whole pop world in the first place, and they're just a bunch of such awesome guys who work hard and make excellent music that just manages to make me feel happy always. :) Hiatus schmiatus!

    #4 Sarah McLachlan (7 times)
    This surprises me - I'm guessing shuffle at work again because I haven't, IMO, been listening to Sarah McLachlan that much.

    #4 John Mayer (7 times)
    John Mayer, hurrah! I love his music. It's perfect chill-out music, and he seems like a fun guy, too.

    Top 5 Songs of the Week

    #1 Ruby Blue (3 times)
    This is from the Grey's Anatomy soundtrack, which I've been listening to somewhat last week. I'm actually surprised the theme song isn't in this position.

    #1 Carry on Wayward Son (3 times)
    This song, it's like crack. Ever since it was featured on a Supernatural episode, I've been all but obsessed with it. LOVE. You should all listen to it (I think you can through last.fm) and rock out. :D (ETA: I wanted to know what the song sounds like through the site, so I tested it. I have to say that the album version that I have sounds better, IMO, but it might be just because I'm used to hearing that version.)

    #1 Love Shack (3 times)
    Again, crack. But the good kind! This is one of those songs that are just fantastic to sing along to in the car when there's no one else there with you.

    #4 Everybody Out of the Water (New Frontier) (2 times)
    This is on the CSI soundtrack and it's just really, really great. Roll-down-your-windows-and-blast-music-in-the-car kind of music. :)

    #4 The Lion Sleeps Tonight (2 times)
    *NSYNC! Yay! I'm surprised it's this song by them and not another one, but then again I've been listening to music on shuffle a lot lately.
