Music meme!

I have rants to make, but not enough energy to make them... so a music meme instead!

Total number of tracks: 1422

Sort by song title:
-First Song: 'Deed I Do - Diana Krall
-Last Song: Zebra - John Butler Trio

Sort by time:
-Shortest Song: Bazmark Fanfare - Baz Lurhmann
-Longest Song: I actually have a couple of radio play kind of things on my computer which go for half an hour, but I'm not going to count those, because, well, they're not songs. Which means that I'll also not count Martin Luther King's 'I Have a Dream' speech, which is third longest. So! The longest song I have is Eskimo, by Damien Rice, at a shocking 15:59 minutes! It's actually playing right now (freaky coincidence!), and I think most of it is actually silence before a secret track...

Sort by album:
-First Song: Bella's Birthday Cake - Five for Fighting (album = ...Message for Albert)
-Last Song: Long Day, Matchbox 20 (album = Yourself or Someone Like You)

Top 10 Most Played Songs:
The program I use to play music doesn't handle 'most played songs' very well, so here's a vague approximation:
At Last - Etta James
Cold Water - Damien Rice
I'm Not Worried at All - Moby
Stuff and Nonsense - Missy Higgins
Homecoming (Walter's Song) - Vienna Teng
I Hear the Bells - Mike Doughty
Walk Away - Kelly Clarkson (w00t for Kelly Clarkson!)
All These Things That I've Done - The Killers
Not Ready to Make Nice - Dixie Chicks (yes, I like the Dixie Chicks. You got a problem with that? This song is especially fabulous, with it's bitter twisted hatred...)
Soon Love Soon - Vienna Teng (my new music obsession)

Search ....
"sex", how many songs come up? 6
"love", how many songs come up? 95
"you", how many songs come up? 225
"death", how many songs come up? 0!
"hate", how many songs come up? 3 (but somehow 'I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor' comes up with that search, so I doubt the accuracy of these results!)
"wish" how many songs come up? 7
