(no subject)

Stolen from evilshell, who stole it from krisco, a survey about music:

What was the first album you ever bought?
Actually, I don't have a clue.. All that is kinda mixed, getting albums etc.. but.. David Bowie: Young Americans or some Suzi Quatro Album, most likely.. (You'r Mama won't like me)

What is the first album you can remember listening to?
Something with Bill Haley.

What was the last album you bought?
I bought 2 CD's.. Alison Krauss & Union Station - New Favorite + a collection with Johnny Cash

What was the last CD you listened to?
Miller's Crossing Soundtrack

How many albums do you currently own?
Gee.. CD + Vinyl.. probably something between 900 - 1,100, would be a good guess..

Which one of your albums do you wish you never would have wasted your money on?
Four Non Blondes.. literally one great song, which I had on a CD-single before.. :(

Name an album you secretly love that would ruin your reputation as cool if people knew about it:
Now, I really listen to all kinds of music.. Everything from the Classical guys to.. well.. Johnny Cash, and everything between and around.. Miles Davies, Soundtracks, Country, Pop, Rock, Hard rock, New Wawe, 50's and 60's, Electronic, funk, Gospel.. And, basically all albums I've got, has some point, or good reason to listen to them, so..

What album do you listen to most often?
Whatever I feel like listening too.. Devo, James Brown, Talking Heads, Blondie, Ennio Morricone.. some of those most likely..

How many concerts have you been to?
Who keeps tracks? Probably about 100

Name them.
Most are Swedish.. Jerry Williams (about 30 times), Wilmer X, Scaffel Pike, Tomas Ledin, Sound of Music, Roxette, Oven & Stove, Gyllene Tider, Trance Dance, X-Models, Dilba, Gina Jacobi, Rockfolket.. I've probably forgotten half of them.. Then.. Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson (2 times), Devo, Suzi Quatro, Weather Girls, Tori Amos (2 times)...

Which of the above, if any, was your favorite?
Can't say, because they're so different.. Tori Amos at Royal Alber Hall in London was "magical", Devo was both incredibly great, as well as it was kinda fantastic finally seeing them after 10 years, Oven & Stove was the most fun and crazy, Janet Jackson has such impressive shows, Gina Jacobi was fun because the audience never gave up wanting her to do some more songs.. not until they had played one extra after 5 minutes (the only song they had rehearsed beside the ones they were playing in the set) and they lit the overhead lamps after about 10 -15 mins..

Name a fantastic album someone else introduced you to:
Actually, I think I've picked up most on my own, hearing songs on radio or whatever.. I guess I have to thank wens some, for the Alison Krauss album.. Kinda fun, because I think I know the reason why I've bought about every album I've got, but can't remember buying anyone because somebody has told me about it.

Name the last album someone else bought for you:
Can't remember that I've gotten an album, except when I was like 12 yrs old or something..

Name the last album you purchased for someone as a gift:
Little Shop of Horrors soundtrack about 10 years ago..

Name a fantastic album you discovered entirely by accident, on your own:
Accident? Tori Amos - Little Earthquakes I think comes closest.. Having read about her in English "Q", and just knowing I had to get that album, despite not having heard a single note with her.. and I think I bought it the first day it was avaible in Sweden. Then I guess Marina Arcangeli was pure luck.. since it's one of the best albums I've ever heard, and buying it mistaking her for someone else..

Name an album that brings back painful memories of adolescence:
None, really..

Name an album that was playing when you underwent a major rite of passage:
American Graffiti Soundtrack

Name an album you'd play for someone you wanted to seduce:
Who could ever say.. 9 1/2 weeks soundtrack, Bryan Ferry, Vangelis, Some Eric Serra soundtrack, Marianne Faithful, Mylène Farmer, Kate Bush. But obviously, that depends on mood and what kind of person it is..
  • Current Music
    Carter Burwell - All A You Whores (Miller's Crossing Soundtrack)

Regarding my last post..

But then, of course, I spent 2 weeks in USA living on Chocolate Milk and King Size Milky Ways :) Usually first thing I ate in the morning, usually the last thing I ate in the evening (at the motel) and usually sometime during the day..

Hmm.. I so loved that Chocolat milk you've got in USA.. We've got Chocolate Milk over here as well, but far from as "yummy".

Kylie Minogue

Funny.. like 3 mins ago, I commented to wens about Kylie Minogue, and the first music they're playing on the radio since, is Kylie Minogue's "Can't get you out of my head".

Yes.. it was last years biggest, most popular hit in Sweden, so it's not as suprising that they play it, but.. like.. exactly "now".
