The baton is passed…

Tommy passed the baton to me, and I’m flattered that he chose little me! There are two ways to react to a thing like this: either regard it as a “Send this e-mail to ten friends or lose a leg” kind of thing, or just something fun and different. I choose experiencing it as fun and different!
So, without further ado: Here’s my list!

Total Volume

Usually around 10 GB of widely (well, at least kind of) spread music flavors.

Last CD Bought

Dance of Death, Iron Maiden

Song Playing Right Now

Actually, none. Like Tommy, I usually like it quiet when working with the computer, unless I’m in a loud and crowded environment and need to focus on my things.

Five Songs I Listen to A Lot, Or That Mean A Lot to Me

This will be a mix of both cases mentioned in this part’s heading, and of course it’s very hard to pick just five songs. But here goes, now I reveal my secrets!

  • All Along The Watchtower, Jimi Hendrix version
  • Sound of Silence, Simon & Garfunkel
  • Hallowed Be Thy Name, Iron Maiden
  • Highway To Hell, AC/DC (I also really like Marit Bergman’s version of it)
  • Layla, Eric Clapton (both the electric and acoustic version)


Five People to Whom I’m Passing the Baton

This was the fun part, picking interesting people that are very different from each other. Forgive me. ๐Ÿ™‚


Fun read? Then make sure to read Music and developing (a day of mood swings) too.


PS. I just upgraded to WordPress 1.5.1. Please let me know if something isn’t working correctly. DS.

Update: Take a look at Technorati for other .

    Good to hear!

    I know that I don’t have a modern taste in music, but I don’t really care…
    I also play the guitar and I’m looking forward to doing some acoustic guitar playing on my patio this Summer. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Tommy Olsson says:

    Robert, I think we have a similar taste in music! ๐Ÿ™‚ I had a hard time picking five songs, and contemplated several Iron Maiden and AC/DC songs, plus a few old Saxon classics. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • A friend is quite a fan of Jimi Hendrix stuff and even though I am not a fan of the genre at all, I still impressed by his work. One or two guitar tunes are also mixed in some nice hardhouse sets as well ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Thanks for the pass!

  • Robert Nyman says:

    Jimi rocks (or rocked)! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I'm looking forward to your post.

    Thanks, Robert ๐Ÿ™‚

    My frankly old-fashioned musical tastes are now on display for all to see…..

    PS: Your Google ads are funny in Opera 8 again…(yes I am still using Opera)

  • Robert Nyman says:


    Thank you for playing along! ๐Ÿ™‚

    And thanks for letting me know about the problems in Opera! I think I missed something while upgrading WordPress…

    Tested, and should be ok now.

    > (yes I am still using Opera)

    Ha ha! ๐Ÿ˜€

    It's ok, if it makes you happy!

  • Sound of Silence — great song. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Your baton had to fly a long way, but it arrived, btw: On music, Livejournal and people

  • Robert Nyman says:


    My five people chain is complete!

    Thank you all for taking it the right way! ๐Ÿ™‚
