I'm in a giving and appreciative mood today. As a token of said atmosphere, I'm sponsoring my very first give away! What's not to like about free stuff during the holidays?
First, I'm going to bare a tidbit of my soul to you. There have been a number of post on this blog about taste in music...mostly because I think what you listen to says a lot about you. It's just a snapshot, mind you, but nonetheless it does give insight. Music is a common thread in our world and has been said to be the very soul of a society or culture.
So what does Tony C listen to most? Here is a list generated from my work laptop of the 15 most listened to songs (usually at work) on iTunes....
1. My Love is Alive- Steve Winwood
2. Beautiful Loser (Live)- Bob Seger
3. Doctor My Eyes- Jackson Brown
4. I Just Love You- Five for Fighting
5. It's Alright- Traveling Wilburys
6. Back in Love Again- LTD
7. Who's Got the Hooch- Everything
8. Outta My Head- Fastball
9. I Am- Train
10. Somewhere Over the Rainbow/Wonderful World- Brutha Iz
11. I Go to the Rock- Aaron Jeoffrey
12. King of Glory- Third Day
13. Poor, Poor Pitiful Me- Linda Ronstadt
14. Give Me One Reason- Tracy Chapman
15. 100 Years- Five for Fighting
You can stop laughing now. I must say I was a little shocked myself when this list generated using Smart Playlist...I even went back and checked it a couple of times. Just so you know I'm being completely upfront, here's a snapshot of my screen...
Keep in mind, I actively use a dozen different playlist of the 18 or so created, and I also listen to podcast quite often and...okay...yes, I'm a little embarrassed. I wish the list had more Christian music and less older-than-dirt stuff...but hey...the truth sometimes hurts.
One explanation: The Hawaiian version of Somewhere Over the Rainbow is my Serenity Now! song. It gets played when I'm most aggravated and need to lower my blood pressure back to somewhere near 120/80. I'm surprised it wasn't number one...
Now here's you chance. Leave us a short (5 to 10) playlist of your most listened to songs via iPod, iTunes, MP3 player, compilation CD or even cassette. No cheating! We obviously don't judge here at Tony C Today...or you wouldn't be reading this far down. Don't try to make yourself more cultured, hip or cutting edge than you truly are with a fictitious list. Bare it true, bare it all...we can take it.
From the comment list, I will randomly pick (read- have the teenager pick a number between...) someone next Monday to send either a $20 iTunes gift card or a comparable card if you're not an iTunes user.
Have fun sharing with us...and have a safe, wonderfully blessed Thanksgiving.
