The iPod Personality Test

Self confessed ‘thirty something geek’ Riayn, isn’t quite convinced by the Sydney Morning Herald article, You show me your iPod, I’ll show you mine.

It claims that your iPod playlist tells others a lot about the kind of person you really are. I thought it just said a lot about your musical taste.

Riayn’s post The iPod – a window into the soul? questions the notion that your musical tastes define you and give an indication of the sort of person you should be dating.

So, what do you think your musical taste tells others about you?

I’ve just looked at the last ten songs that my iPod Mini played on shuffle. What do you think it says about me?

1. I Get Along Without You Very Well – Diana Krall
2. Only the Good Die Young – Billy Joel
3. What’s Happened to You – The Call
4. Easy On Your Own – Australian Crawl
5. Narrow Daylight – Diana Krall
6. Drive-In Saturday – David Bowie
7. I Don’t Care About the Past – The Senators
8. The Language of Life – Everything But The Girl
9. In The Echo Chamber – Hoodoo Gurus
10. Frozen River – Everything But The Girl

If you’ve got a music player that you can set to play randomly you might like to let me know your last ten songs.

What a day

I had the most marvellous time yesterday.

It was wonderful to have Randy Stonehill drop in for an hour on-air during my radio programme on 98.5 Sonshine FM yesterday morning.

We chatted and played some of his music from just after 11:00 a.m. until midday. It was one of the highlights of my time working in radio.

He’s an incredibly nice guy and has a really weird sense of humour, so he fitted in just fine on my programme.
I really enjoyed getting the background on some of his music and his career which is now in its 36th year.

His concert last night at the Lakeside Recreation Centre was just incredible.
I had the pleasure of introducing Randy as he came onto the stage and so I did a quick poll to see how many people were seeing him perform for the first time. It seems that most of the audience were first timers which put a big smile on my face because I just knew that they were about to experience one of the most amazing performances of their lives. I was so very pleased to be able to take Pauline, Emily and James to their first Randy Stonehill concert.

The night began with a handful of songs by the very talented Kaylee Abbott, and in answer to the very many questions I was asked by audience members later, no she hasn’t released a CD yet.

Randy was just as funny as I remembered him from previous shows. He had people in tears from laughter. His vocals are still crystal clear and what he can do with just one guitar is sensational.

He can have people doubling up laughing and then minutes later the audience will be completely silent, hanging onto every word of a ballad. He’s a master songwriter and has released so many albums that he can’t even remember the lyrics from some of his songs.

I only hope it’s not another 16 years before he comes back to Perth.
