Music tag

My sister Kathy just tagged me with a few questions regarding music. It seems as though she was tagged by a fellow blogger with a few of the following questions and wanted to see what my answers might be. So here it goes,question one, What are the total music files on your computer? I have no idea. I have a ton of music on my Napster playlist, but I usually end up burning it onto a CD to play while I paint in my studio. Question #2- What is the last CD purchased. I just purchased Frou Frou's latest CD a few weeks ago and I love it. I also purchased one by Seether, because of the duet with Amy Lee from evanescense(don't know if I spelled that correctly). The rest of the CD is hard core, but I like it when I am full of angst. Question#3- What is the last song I listened to before I received these questions? Hmmm, I think it was Let Go by Frou Frou. That has become one of my favorite songs to paint by lately. Last question- Name 5 songs that mean something to you and why. This is a hard one for me. I would have to say Everybody Knows by Leonard Cohen is at the top of my list because it always brings to mind all of the double talk that goes on in politics in our society. Let Go by Frou Frou is one I have listened to a lot lately. The lyrics,
"there's beauty in the break down,"
became the title of one of my more recent paintings,because it made me think about the way events or moments in time can be perceived. There is beauty in the good and the bad because there is always something to be learned from either. I love any song that Amy Lee from evanescense( again, I have no idea if I spelled that correctly) sings. Her voice is so amazing that I get very absorbed in the music-especially if I am painting or letting out my inner diva in the car and attempting to belt out a tune along with her. The band Cake is at the top of my list. I love their rendition of I Will Survive. Their music is humorous and edgy, but I usually have to play most of their unedited music after the kids go to bed. My last song is Somebody Told Me by the Killers. It makes think of the club scene and dancing. It is also fun to rock out to in the car. I am definitely one of those scary people that sings along without abandon while driving along in my car. My kids have been known to ask me to tone it done a bit. Oh well, score one for the embarrassing mom bit.
This is a picture created while listening to Frou Frou and is about my children. The working title is Welcome to My World.

Christina - I love the two new pastels! Just what I need to complement the "private collection" of your art that I already own... (Figured out who this is yet?) Your art gets more and more amazing every year... I love it~
