I want you to:

  1. Search your drive for MP3s.

  2. Sort them by date, oldest first, and
  3. List the first five.

Mine are:

U2 – “Staring At The Sun” – 10/06/97
Reel Big Fish – “Beer” – 05/06/99
Expansion Union – “Playing With Lighting” – 06/27/99
Live – “Voodoo Lady” – 10/06/99
Cop Shoot Cop – “3 AM Incident” – 11/01/99

…with Ben Harper, Stereo MC and INXS narrowly missing the cut.

Tell me yours.

    What, you’re not going to post the find command string necessary? You expect me to actually think?

    As I show just how desperately in need of a cleaning my hard drive is:

    Amish Paradise – 8/13/96
    Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me Kill Me – 9/3/96
    With Or Without You – 9/5/96
    I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles) – 11/8/96
    Free Fallin’ – 11/11/96

    To get to anything I still listen to I need to jump ahead to 4/15/97 — House of the Rising Sun. Which probably isn’t that much better.

    OK, I figured out to type my own <br>s, but thought it’d catch and convert the double-line-breaks on its own. Sorry ’bout that.
