I added 2000 songs to my iTunes this weekend because I was sick and barricaded myself in my flat. A lot of the songs were actually rock songs from CDs that i totally forgot I had. Like Alice In Chains (the song "No excuses" is one of my favourites), Fiona Apple, Alanis Morrissette, Sheryl Crow, Linkin Park, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Filter, The Verve, The Doors, Seal, Edwin Collins, Stereophonics, Sublime, Dandy Warhols, and some others that I can't remember. I even (shamefully) found my "Best of Taco" CD (did he really have song other than "Putting on the Ritz"). But I also found some great stuff from Whitney Houston, Aaliyah, Toni Braxton, Brandy, Queen Latifah (oh jeez), Salt-N-Peppa, Mc Lyte, and a few others.

But I have definately been in a rock mood all day. On the flight to Helsinki tonight, listed to all rock songs, played a little air guitar, and just plain old made up the lyrics when I didn't know them.

I like the fact that I have such diverse musical tastes. Unfortunately, the visual perception people have of me is such that they expect me to name all the hottest rap, hip hop, and R&B groups. And those artists do have a place in my collection. But the important part is so do many other musical styles (like I completely forgot that when I was in South Africa I bought a CD from an south african artist called Brenda. And the music is quite good). And some brasillian music I found was cool too.

But for the moment. Rock on ;-) When I am done adding songs (probably in April), I will have about 15,000 songs in my iTunes Music Library. And about 200 videos :)

I'm a dork :)
