"A picture of your iPod or other music-playing device on shuffle, and then list the first 10 songs that play." The second is "A picture of something you hate."

I do not have an ipod - the daughter keeps telling me to get spotify and she has an mp3 but I am still with CD-players and haven´t bought any music for ages...

I have listened to a lot of music all my life and radio or record-player was constantly on. That changed with my relationship - he was a devoted music collector and always had some music playing when he worked or relaxed. And I lost interest. Completely. I have been a member of the church-choir, I do "compose" ... more like write texts to existing music for plays or children musicals, I am the proud member of an ukulele orchestra - but I hardly listen to musik anymore. One reason is that after chemoteraphy, I have gotten sensible to noice, I get very tired if I spend too much time where people talk a lot, I get very tired from "elevator-music" and I prefer silence. I do listen to the radio in the mornings but it´s a "talk-channel" with no music.

But if I would put together some songs I would like to take with me on a desert island it would be:
Joan Armatrading: I´m Lucky
Bach: Weinachtsoratorium
Tina Turner: Privat dancer
Dan Hylander: Svart Kaffe
Kim Larsen: Hvad Gør VI Nu, Lille Du
From the movie Mamma Mia: Our last summer with Colin Firth, Pierce Brosnan and Stellan Skarsgård.
Israel Kamakawiwo'ole: Somewhere over the Rainbow / What a Wonderful World
Alison Kraus: Down in the river to pray
Åsa Jinder: Stilla ro och nära
Benny Andersson: Song of solace

The photo will be Åsa Jinder:

Then - a picture of something I hate... as with music it sort of varies so it is hard but I decided that I do hate animal industry and started looking for pictures... and after a while I realised that was not healthy for me, I can´t stand looking at horrible things, my imagination is good enough without it, thank you very much...

So my picture represent what it SHOULD be like, instead of what I hate...Meet Merlin a gloustershire pig:

I would also like to present a picture of "ignorance" as in people who judges others based on stupitity, but it is too depressing to picture what I hate, I will leave the subject!

    I also rarely listen to music anymore. Ugh. The abuse that goes on against animals infuriates me!

    Very interesting blog. I hardly ever listen to music anymore, either. Maybe because I hardly ever dance anymore. I did buy a Nintendo Wii last night and a couple dance games. I even tried two dances this morning before going to work. My husband is not in a band now and so rarely plays music. I'll still put it on loudly when I'm cleaning, but then I'll start dancing and stop cleaning! Which is fine with me.

    I can't stand looking at horrible things, either. Animal industry would be right up there at the top of the list, along with child abuse, etc. I think stupid people are here to teach us patience, among other things.

    Another meaningful blog! So sorry to hear that you have lost the joy you used to find in music. My husband knows that things are not well with me when as he puts it the music dies. Usually at that point I make an effort to put some music on and voila my mood instantly changes!! I would be lost without music!

    Take Care
