Pop Quiz!

Disclaimer: Please know that the songs currently in iTunes are approximately 1/4 to 1/3 of my total music collection. I'm currently formulating a strategy to get all music digitized and organized. So, I'm working with the currently limited selection. Um, that was three currently's in three sentences. Oh look, another one.

Open iTunes/iPod or Windows Media Player to answer the following. Go to your library. Answer, no matter how embarrassing it is.

Number of songs: 1067

Sort by song:
First Song: (De Le) Yaleo - Santana
Last Song: Zoo Station - U2

Sort by time:
Shortest song: 0:04 - (Four Seconds of Noise) - Hot Hot Heat
Longest song: 12:27 - The Calling - Santana (And I really only have one Santana album, for all their appearances here).
Actual Song 9:36 - (I think I'm supposed to find a song with that time.) Since there isn't an exact one, the closest at 9:50 is "California One/Youth and Beauty Brigade" by The Decemberists

2. Chariot - Gavin DeGraw
3. July, July! - The Decemberists
4. Rock Star - N.E.R.D.

5. Howl - Black Rebel Motorcycle Club

"Sex": 19 (all but two on Blood Sugar Sex Magik), the others are Sonic Youth ("Self-Obsessed and Sexxee") and for some inexplicable reason Eric Clapton and B.B. King ("I Wanna Be").
"Death": 1 - Death by Chocolate, by DePhazz
"Love": 89, good heavens. Most are from the Beatles, Stevie Wonder, the Supremes. Ray Charles, and Diana Krall.
"You": 142. No details.

And a question of my own: Currently Listening - "No Need to Argue" by The Cranberries, specifically "Zombie." Earlier I had tthe "do do do" intro to "Ode to my Familly" in my head and just haven't turned it off yet.
