last august i started a project of listening to all the songs on my ipod in alphabetical order. most of the listening was at work, where i am by myself for the most of the day. i did take breaks here and there but never for more than a day or two. i finished late last week, it took me almost nine months to get through it. here’s what i learned.
-you can put ‘post’ in front of anything music genre and i will probably listen to it, the same goes for ‘proto’
-songs from broadway musicals often just don’t work out of context.
-i have a LOT of noise/drone music. there were times that days would go by and i would here nothing else due to the pieces are often called “track” or “untitled”.
-while my musical taste is all over the place it all flows together very well.
-i’m not ashamed of all the pop or high school musical soundtracks, but i would turn down the soul coughing songs. i don’t know why, i still like them, but i felt judged.
-the mega man soundtracks are great incidental music.
-the hardest songs to listen to at work were the aphex twin ambient pieces, they made time go by so slowly.
-same goes for violent femmes.
-i have excellent taste in music.
