What's on your portable music player?

I'm listening to Massive Attack's newest album. I also have the Beethoven Symphonies that the BBC made available a few months ago. And Antony and the Johnsons, because I went to kindergarten with the bassist.

I'm listening to various songs by the Japanese singer Hikaru Utada. I downloaded them on to my hard disk-drive player from my computer. I've also got some music by Madonna and Britney Spears on my music player.

Slipknot, from their Kalifornia album. There are too many people living in Tokyo, and it's a dirty city. I think Slipknot's lyrics relate to living in Tokyo. I also have hip hop CDs, some Korn and the latest Gorillaz album, which I recommend.

I'm listening to Dub -- Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra from a compilation on my Sony Network Walkman. I dance the Argentine tango, so I have millions of tango songs on here, as well as some jazz, a bit of Bach, folk music etc.

Classic rock on my iPod. Blue Oyster Cult from their Agents of Fortune album, but I'm fickle about my music -- one day it's rap, then classic rock. With iTunes I can download a song and see what songs other people who downloaded that song have downloaded.

I'm listening to Teresa Teng, from her Best album, which came out last year. I bought the CD about a year ago. It's J-Pop. I have lots of her albums, and also the DVD of a concert she did in Taiwan.
