The 20 Tracks Meme… again, stolen from Epiphany.

This is an easy meme…simple…fascile.

Create a playlist or mix cd based on the responses you give to the following 20 questions. Now go and give it a try!

1. A track from your early childhood
Herb Alpert – “1980”

2. A track that you associate with your first love
Genesis – “In Too Deep”

3. A track that reminds you of a holiday trip
Clannad – “Darkmere”

4. A track that you like but wouldn’t want to be associated with in public
Type O Negative – “Unsuccessfully Coping With the Natural Beauty of Infidelity” (I was at work, with the CEO’s secretary in my office, when this song started. If I hadn’t quickly hit skip, I probably would have been out of a job before the song was half over.)

5. A track that accompanied you when you were lovesick
a-ha – “Hunting High and Low”

6. A track that you have probably listened to most often
Metallica – “Nothing Else Matters”

7. A track that is your favourite instrumental
Tomoyasu Hotei – “Battle Without Honor or Humanity”

8. A track that represents one of your favourite bands
Jethro Tull – “Broadsword”

9. A track which represents yourself best
Peter Schilling – “The Different Story (World of Lust and Crime)”

10. A track that reminds you of a special occasion (which one?)
Adema – “Immortal” (This may sound silly, but this was the song that was packed in with Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance; Adema performed it live at E3 2002, which was the very first E3 I went to, and was also the show where I first met Ed Boon and got to know the Midway crowd.)

11. A track that you can relax to
Pink Floyd – “Shine On You Crazy Diamond Parts 1-5”

12. A track that stands for a really good time in your life
Bezo – “Chinese Ninja Warrior” (Justin “]{0MBAT” Deering introduced this track to me when we spent a weekend in Vegas back in February 2005 covering a Midway press event.)

13. A track that is currently your favourite
Lacuna Coil – “Enjoy the Silence”

14. A track that you’d dedicate to your best friend
Herb Alpert – “Rise” (This would be for Louie; Missy might not find the one for her too appropriate.)

15. A track that you think nobody but you likes
Garth Brooks – “The Thunder Rolls” (At least, out of my groups of friends…)

16. A track that you like especially for its lyrics
Loreena McKennitt – “The Bonny Swans”

17. A track that you like that’s neither English nor German
Cirque du Soleil – “Mer Noire”

18. A track that lets you release tension best
Blue Man Group – “Klein Mandelbrot”

19. A track that you want to be played on your funeral
Seal – “Prayer for the Dying”

20. A track that you’d nominate for the “best of all times” category
Led Zeppelin – “Kashmir”
