Music and Words

Recently, Debra honored me with the Music and Words Award. Thank you! (Takes bow)
Here are my answers to the accompanying questionnaire.

1. What does music mean to you?

I don't think I know how to answer that question.

I love music. I think it's one of the great joys of life. I wouldn't want to live in a world without music. But I don't know what it "means" to me. But I'm definitely in favor of it.

Here's a song I like a lot:

2. What's your first music-related memory?

Maybe seeing the Osmond Brothers perform David Bowie's "Fame" on the Donnie and Marie Show? That was so surreal it really stuck in my memory bank.

Hmm, I guess it was just Donny. I would have sworn it was the Osmond Brothers. Oh well.

3. What was the first album you purchased yourself?

The first album I remember actually going into a record store and buying was Adam Ant's "Friend or Foe." I may have bought records at garage sales before that, but that's the first one I remember buying.

4. What's the latest music you purchased?

The most recent cds I purchased were gifts for the Missus, The Cure Live in Paris and a Live Clash recording.The most recent music I bought for myself was Emmylou Harris Live at the Ryman at the friends of the library sale.

5. What's the last song you listened to? (be honest)

Mexicali Blues
