6536 and Counting

We've all got those secret favourites and guilty pleasures you hope no one will ever find out, but I own them.  Music is one of my passions and my iPod song list (currently storing 6536 songs) is my absolute pride and joy.  The area I am living at the moment in Leeds is known for muggings and break-ins - good choice I know, and conversation often turns to what we would miss the most if it got stolen.  I'm pretty sure my iPod would be the one item I would fight tooth and nail for. You know when in certain life threatening situations people say "every thought emptied from my mind and my fighting instinct kicked in" (or something along those lines..) I genuinely think if someone tried to nick my iPod I would put up a very good fight!  I am obsessed with new and old music, from every genre, and downloading music is one of my favourite ways to spend a hungover Saturday afternoon.

This summer I finally got an iPhone, the only real device I believe should be considered a Smartphone, and I haven’t looked back.  There are endless ways to entertain yourself through apps, 3G internet (which admittedly can be a bit hit and miss when I’m back in the Emerald Isle) and the excellent camera for example.  The best app I think I’ve downloaded in the last few months is Shazam.  Don’t ask me how it works but for a music lover like me, it is an absolute life saver - I’ve spent hours scouring the internet searching for that song they played at the end of Dirty Sexy Things.  It seems to listen to the song and 9/10 times it will produce the name of the song, the artist and any album artwork if it’s available.  It saves the songs you have ‘Shazamed’, which is great for someone like me who hears a song, wants to download it, but forgets the name after 20 minutes.

These are a few of my current favourite songs some old, some new:
