  • The Muppets Meet Murderbot

    I’m such a follower. Obviously, this doesn’t actually require iTunes, and could be applied to any music library.

    How many total songs? 2952, or just under 8 days

    Sort by song title; first and last? From “…To Die For” by Hans Zimmer from The Lion King soundtrack to “Zombie” by The Cranberries. Ignoring non-letter-initial songs, the first would be “A Boy Like That” by Stephen Sondheim from Side by Side by Sondheim.

    Sort by time; shortest and longest? From “The End of the Talking!” by the VeggieTales from A Very Veggie Christmas to “Vice Presidential Debate” by Dick Cheney and John Edwards from 2004 Presidential Debates. Ignoring the spoken word, the longest would be “Presto – Allegro Assai – Andante Maestoso – Allegro Energico, Sempre Ben Marcato” by Ludwig van Beethoven from The 9th Symphony in D Minor, Op. 125. I was kind of hoping that “Star Trek: Conversational Klingon” would come up as the longest. Maybe I should delete the debates…

    Sort by album title; first and last? From Moby’s 18 to Kenny Loggins’ Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow.

    Top five most played songs?

    • “Radio Ga Ga” by Queen (25)
    • “Imaginary” by Evanescence (24)
    • “Clubbed to Death (Kurayamino Mix)” by Rob D (24)
    • “Special” by Garbage as arranged and sung by Stanford Mixed Company (24)
    • “Jerry Springer” by “Weird Al” Yankovic (23)

    Search for sex; how many songs show up? 1

    • “Sexy Sadie” by The Beatles

    Search for death; how many songs show up? 3

    • “Judas’ Death” from Jesus Christ Superstar
    • “Come to Me (Fantine’s Death)” from Les Misérables
    • “Clubbed to Death (Kurayamino Mix)” by Rob D

    Search for love; how many songs show up? 122
    From “A Heart Full of Love” from Les Misérables to “You’ve Got to Hide Your Love Away” by The Beatles, a total of just under 8 hours. I guess that means that love accounts for approximately one twenty-fourth of my music library…

    I love this little gentleman.

    We were wandering the neighborhood to see light displays and ended up at Kerry Park’s iconic view.
