The iPod Quiz

I'm a little lacking for anything exciting to say, so I'm going to post this iPod survey that I gacked from Melissa's LiveJournal. Of course the responses are mine; I didn't need to gack the answers. Hehe...

1). How many songs do you have? A mere 2,157.

2). Which artist/group do you have the most of? U2.

3). How many songs by them? 166. Van Morrison is close behind at 141.

4). Top 5 Most Played Songs: (this owing mostly to the fact that these are all on my most-played playlist)

#1: Have A Nice Day, Stereophonics.

7). Words translated into English:

This song of mine
Hymn of love
I sing to you now
with my pain
so strong, so great
it stabs my heart.

But the morning is clear
among the fields the scent of wine
I dreamt of you and now
I see you there
Ah, what memories
fresco of hills
I cry -- what madness
it was to leave and go

Blah blah blah. It sounds better in Italian.

We have some of the same stuff. :)

I just realized that I don't have 'London Calling' on the iPod. I have 'The Singles' on there... *makes note to put it on with Bruce Springsteen's Greatest Hits and Kelly Clarkson next time I update*

Once I put DMB's 'Busted Stuff' on it, I think I'll have more DMB than U2. Of course, I can STILL only listen to two songs off of 'Stand Up' because of the whole copyright crap.

'Chocolate'...I love that song. :)
