Musical emergency

A problem has occurred. Actually, it’s been occurring and I have been ignoring it fiercely. My iPhone is in dire need of some major updates and I need to connect it to my Macbook to do them. However, when I connect my phone into this new computer, I’m probably going to lose all my  music (Note: If you know this to be false, please let me know ASAP). This wouldn’t be a problem if I was a smart person who backed up music files before moving, but as we have reviewed, I am not a smart person.

So, I made a list of all the albums on my phone that I am going to slowly and diligently borrow from the Chicago library system to rebuild my musical empire. I decided to post the list on here in case any friends have copies and might be willing to email me files and / or mail me hard copies. You all came to my musical aid before I moved so I am asking you again, from one music addict to another, for assistance. I will thank you in leftover Valentine’s Day candy!

Also, I spent a long time on this list and I wanted it to be more than a Google document I refer to while making library requests.

  • Sufjan Stevens, Illinois

One thought on “Musical emergency

  1. Put me down for Garden State and Once soundtracks. I’ll get them emailed as soon as I can/remember. Maybe remind me. I have some random Death Cab music (enough to cover two CDs) but I don’t actually know which albums they’re from. Also is that No Doubt the one with “Spiderwebs” and “I’m Just a Girl” etc. I should have that on my computer.
