Music Baton, Passed It On

Because I'm not so much a meme whore, it took me a while to get on this one. And because the guy who named me in his music baton is so damned persistent, I gave in. Here goes ...

Music Volume. Upwards of 38GB now (much of which I haven't even listened to yet).

Last CD Bought. Unless you mean CDR/CDRW, it was probably ... hmmm ...

Song Playing Right Now. I don't know who it is, or what song it is, but
it's a 70's duet with this line in it,

"Suddenly, [something something] emotion, and I ... am ready to take any oceana. Suddenly, I don't need the answers 'cause I ... am ready to take all my chances with you."

[ Edit: I dug it up. This song is called Suddenly, sung by Olivia Newton-John and Cliff Richard. And I got some of the lyrics wrong. ]

Oh, and it's also interrupted periodically by,
"We appreciate your continued patience. A customer professional will be with you shortly. To avoid long wait times, you may also visit us at our website, at"

Five songs I listen to a lot, or that mean a lot to me. These songs don't necessarily mean a lot to me -- there are some that have more meaning for me personally -- but I'm really enjoying these songs right now.

The Game feat 50 Cent - Hate it or Love It
Jojo - Baby It's You
Lil Flip feat Lea - Sunshine (Bosko Remix)
Lloyd Banks - Lloyd Banks feat Avant - Karma (Remix)
Usher feat Alicia Keys - My Boo

Five People to Whom I’m Passing the Baton. This didn't really come with one of those "if you don't pass it to five people you will suffer insurmountable bad luck and misfortune" threats, but I'm going to dupe five others into this anyhow.

* An Alias Foray
* Brain Doodles
* Head Dump
* Learning To Love Country
* Stuff in My Head

(Sorry, guys.) Okay, I promise my next post will be more fun for you. And of course, you're more than welcome to comment on my choices of answers or submit your own. (Duh, that's what comments are for.)

Yeah, "Suddenly" is a great song. I like Olivia Newton-John.

Oh, there's another song where the guy sings, "Suddenly, life has new meaning to me." Any idea who that is?

And another one where the chorus is a bunch of girls in the background vocals, "Cherish the life [something] [something] ... cherish the [something]". I dunno, all I know is that "cherish" is the most prominent word. Again, 70's stuff.

One more: "If ever you're in my arms again, this time I'll hold you forever ... this time will never end." Guy singing it, back in the 70's.

(What. When I was younger, I listened to the likes of Gordon Lightfoot: my clock radio was stuck at a "favourites of yesterday and today" radio station CFUN 1410.)

- Suddenly (Billy Ocean / Kai / ...?)
- If Ever You're in My Arms Again (Peabo Bryson)
- Cherish (Kool and the Gang).

Lately, I've been addicted to:
- R.Kelly's World's Greatest (peppy song), and
- Mandy Moore's I Wanna Be with You,
among others.
