Musical Tag

Posted: Wednesday, March 28, 2007 by Travis Cody in

Quick Dancing note - Paulina and Alec are the first to go. Next week's dances are Jive and Tango. Wooooooooooooooooooo!!

And now, a Musical tag...and no ranting this time for me!!

First, let me say I'm enjoying this particular meme as it makes its rounds. Such diverse musical tastes we all have.

As Tagger Morgen suggests, I am a music lover! Ironically, I'm not musical. I don't play any instruments, although I am a maestro when it comes to the virtual harmoncia. Just ask any Soul Patrol ladies, they'll tell ya. Imagination is a wonderful thing.

But I never learned to play a real instrument. I was busy with athletics, and for me it didn't leave any time to get involved in band. If I'm going to do something, I'm going to focus on it and practice until I do it well. And for me, that was football. I don't regret the choice, but I do sometimes wish I'd taken the time to study music.

Still, that focus on football never prevented me from developing a love of music. My mom is responsible for this. She always had music playing. I grew up on jazz, old style country and western, 1940's big band swing, 1950's rock and roll, 1960's Motown, even crooners and show tunes. You name it, my mom had a record of it. We sang, we danced, we laughed.

So my musical tastes are diverse.

I'm just going to hit the random button on my Ipod and see what plays out of the 4953 songs in my catalog.

1. He Ain't Heavy He's My Brother, The Hollies
2. Roll Me Away, Bob Seger
3. Back in Black, AC/DC
4. Words of Love, The Mamas & The Papas
5. One Way Out, The Allman Brothers
6. Beyond the Sea, Bobby Darin
7. Sing A Song, Earth Wind & Fire

That's my seven. Just a random stroll through my Ipod and part of my life soundtrack.

I wasn't going to post any video (dang audio codes anyway), but I found this one and it's just too good not to share.


  1. Kevin Spacey was great!!!

    4953 songs??? It must be time for me to buy an Ipod :)

  1. TopChamp says:

    I've never got round to transferring many songs on... It seems I'm a bit of a lazy listener.

    Roll Me Away, Bob Seger - didn't know this so I've youtube'd it - otherwise they're very familiar classic songs.

  1. Keyser Soze can sing?! Who knew!

  1. Angell says:

    Great list Trav! And I thought mine was a lot - boy, I still have space to go (you've got the 30g or the 80g?).

    LOVE Kevin Spacey. Thanks for that.

    Great list of songs. I love my ipod. I've only got about 1500 songs on it so far, but am constantly adding to it. It's great!

    I too can't play an instrument to save my life, but love music.

  1. Anndi says:

    AC/DC!! Rock on!
