OMFG I got my music back! SO MUCH!
... HOLY MOTHER OF DOUBLE RAINBOW!!!! My mp3 collection! My real collection! It's... here! It's all freaking here!!!! It's 20 gigabytes, and it is so so SOOOOOOO awesome. I'm happy like crazy right now. Here's a snapshot of what I've been going through tonight. This is the list of what I listened to in winamp as I was going through my treasure trove:
greenskeepers - gan slam (3:18)
OMG it's Swing House! Remember back in 2002 when it was SO awesome? I actually collected quite a bit of it. This was one of my favourites. Now there is a swing house track in heavy rotation on commercial radio in Melbourne and it's hilarious because it's like 8 years later. I guess that's how it goes, isn't it?
