Music Profiling

There's no way I'm doing that long questionaire of boring things. (I do snore sometimes and often snort when I laugh, though.) But I love the randomness of music profiling so I am doing this. (But I will never use the term "meme," FYI. I like the internet, I'm obviously a self-obsessed, compulsive blogger, but I don't care for "terms" and prefer to treat everything I do as traditional self-publishing. Sort of an eco-friendly Thomas Paine, but without all the relevance and with more song lyrics and recipes.)

How many songs: 2835 (haven't loaded half of my collection in yet)

Sort by song title:
First song: '69 El Camino by SCOTS
Last song: Zombie Love by the Jazz Butcher

Sort by time:

B - Considering you have four times loaded in that I do, that's actually pretty incredible.

We have the same Rilo Kiley Outro which is cool. I laughed because I hate the word meme too but still ended up using it didn't I?

Yes, incredible it is. But here is something more so about mine. Number of AC/DC songs: 182.

Boo ya!

I noticed that coincidence, as well, dale, because I used your list as a template for mine. And yes, I thought that was cool. Next time don't give in. Call it a tag. Meme is annoying.

You may have 182 AC/DC songs, B, but I have have 32 songs written or performed by guys named Barry (mostly Gibb and Manilow.) Booyah right back at you.
