Not a bit of food

I guess there's a meme going around the food-blogging community. Folks for some perverse reason want to know the musical tastes of various online people.

If you think that's interesting, here ya go. I'm actually somewhat horrified by this list myself.

What is the total number of music files on your computer?
763 songs. 2.7 days worth of music. 6.76 GBs. This isn't even close to the number of CDs that I have at home. While I listen to "songs" at work, I usually am more "album oriented" at home.

What is the last CD you bought?
Evanescence. Fallen. Pre-ordered ahead of release due to the hit single. I think that about half of the tracks are up to that level.

What is the last song you last listened to before reading this message?
"Just Like a Pill", Pink. Just goes to show you that even a metalhead/progressive rocker like myself can be listening to pop.

Write down 5 songs you often listen to or that mean a lot to you.
In no particular order, and informed by what I've been listening to in the past year or so. This is a bit of a misleading list, because I work on music software. There are lots of songs that I start playing as part of my work, but never really finish. But I'm going to assume that I use these as test files at least in part because I enjoy them rather than that they happen to be handy.
- "Distant Early Warning", Rush. I don't really care for much else on this album (I'm more of an old school Rush person) but the content of the song makes it worthwhile for me.
- "One Simple Thing", Stabilizers. Good luck finding this anyplace. I only know about it all because KOME (long since failed radio station here in the Bay Area) had a penchant for playing it more often than really made sense.
- "Best I Can", Queensrÿche. I used to listen to this in the car on the way to work almost every morning. It wasn't the greatest period in my life, but the song helped.
- "…And Jusice For All", Metallica. I actually like the entire album, but if I had to pick one song from it, this would probably be the one.
- "Dark Side of the Moon", Pink Floyd. Not a song, but it's really ment to be listened to all of the way through.

Who are you going to pass this stick to (3 persons) and why?
Since I really don't know any other people, I'm thinking that I'm the "dead end" to this meme that Derrick speculated upon. Sorry meme, but you've finished with this part of the internet.
