oh and thanks fro the dinner invites, but it's rude to post during a meal and I'm tongue-tied offline.
I'm going to change the question slightly to fit the answer that I want to give. Because I can.So I'm answering the question from an iTunes point of view, where solo artists are listed by their first names instead of their surnames. And I'm imagining a virus which wipes out all of my music apart from everything starting with the letter 'D' - this would preserve all of the following:Dakota SuiteDanny WilsonDe La SoulDeacon BlueDean FriedmanDeath Cab For CutieThe DecemberistsDel AmitriDelaysThe DentistsDexter GordonDexys Midnight RunnersThe Divine ComedyDonald FagenDovesDurutti Column'B' would come a close second.
Ha! I don't have my CDs organized at all, let alone alphabetically, and I'm way too indecisive to pick one letter. Plus I'm in that strange not-so-good mood when I can't decide what I want to listen to.
It'd have to be S for me. The stranglers (a passion), The Smiths (likewise, Joaquin Sabina, and a very long etcetera. I'd need a jolly big cardboard box to put them all in, though.Steen - can't decide what to listen to?. Time for Malcom's cd, then. I'll try to have it in the box tomorrow!
T:gives me everything that starts with 'the'.... (Pixies will have to be wrongly filled)
H Hatfields, Henry Cow, and enough Peter Hammill to fill a wheelbarrow ... or should that be a Handcart?
Easy!'D'It's got (the) Doors and Deep Purple in it, innit!
@ gordonimmel - AND Dean Friedman!
I'm going to have to sacrifice RT and go for B: then I get Bob, Bruce and Buddy...plus the Band, if shane'll let me.
I take it tinny's letter F has already jumped out of the thread header so that it can _lee the _urious _lames of the _igurative _ire!!
Good to see Dakota Suite in ToffeeBoy's singed hands! Do I need to amend the last line of my profile on the Marconium now, TB?
I'll have a P please, Bob.
Hmmm ... depending on how bad the fire is, I may panic and grab A because of the immediate hits of AC/DC, Aereogramme and Alabama3. B tempts with all the Blacks & Blues contained therein. C runs the gamut of my musical taste from Calexico and Cowboy Junkies to Creed and Centro-Matic. D is small but with a pair of aces up its sleeve in Dakota Suite and Drive-By Truckers. I'm tempted to cheat and grab E for External Hard Drive ... No, it would probably be either L (Led Zep, Little Feat, Low, Lyle Lovett, Live, Living Colour, Lone Justice, Lynyrd Skynyrd and lots more); or T for Talk Talk, Thunder, Thin Lizzy, Twilight Singers, and all the artists I can cheat by claiming The...
Using Carole's trick, I can store everything under one letter in the i-Tunes sort field, keep the original names & my entire collection. Ha ha!
@ToffeeBoy, er, but I don't have any Dean Friedman (might consider it one day, mind you) and if I did it would be under 'F'. Sorry, but that's just the way it is. I've got (alphabeticalimization) standards to keep up, you know.
A list is uphttp://www.guardian.co.uk/music/2009/nov/12/readers-recommend-vim-songs
Torn between C (Cure, Cult, Mr Cave) and S (Siouxsie, Sisters, Sneaker Pimps), I don't want to imagine losing my CD collection though, it makes me sad :-(
I have my records, more or less, in the order I've played them. I'd grab a handfull from the front I suppose and hope my James Tatun was in there.
Haven't posted on here before because, as a beekeeper, I was too busy feeling offended by the cartoon.M: on the mp3 player principle, this gives me Miles Davis, Motorhead, Mogwai, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Manuel Goettsching and Massive Attack, which at least offers some variety.
B! Belle and Sebastian, Ballboy, Blur, Bluetones, Belly, Beat band, Lou Barlow, BooRadleys, Billy Bragg, Kate Bush, Black Box Recorder, Bjork, Bright Eyes! Noooo!
