Here’s a fun one from Diane. You answer each question in the following meme with whatever’s palying on your iPod shuffle, or in my case, my computer iTunes smart playlist. (I opted not to use my entire library as it had a lot of holiday stuff and kids stuff which I don’t listen to regularly.) So this is from my collection I listen to most often. As Diane says, “It’s more fun than the Magic 8 Ball!”
How does the world see me?
Tangled Up in Blue by Bob Dylan
We’re off to an interesting start
Will I have a happy life?
Angels with Dirty Faces by Los Lobos
We only just loaded our extensive Los Lobos collection last night, so I haven’t listened to this song in a long time. Not sure how to interpret it as an answer.
What do my friends really think of me?
Back on the Chain Gang by The Pretenders
Oooh. Am I that hard to get along with?
Do people secretly lust after me?
Work That Sh## Out by Dsico
Hee hee. This is one from TS&WGH’s vast library of “Mashed” music. It pairs Destiny’s Child with Jimmy Hendrix. I guess it’s appropriate?
How can I make myself happy?
Cocaine (live) by Eric Clapton
No, no, no! Although I love, love, love this song and Clapton)
What should I do with my life?
River of Fools by Los Lobos
Maybe I shouldn’t have started this silly meme…
Will I ever have children?
American Girl by Tom Petty
OK, I have one of those, sort of (my girl holds and American passport, but was born in Germany).
What is some good advice for me?
Superman by Five for Fighting
I think I have one of those too…
How will I be remembered?
The Best of Love by Ocean 11
OK. I can live with that. It’s Ska too, which is interesting.
What is my signature dance song?
Ring of Fire by Social Distortion
I guess Social D is more danceable than my Johnny Cash version, but really, whaaa?!
What do I think my current theme song is?
Can’t Buy Me Caroline by Go Home Productions
Another mashed song, this time combining the Fab Four with something heavy on rock guitar that I don’t recognize. I’ll interpret with the “Money Can’t Buy Me Love” part.
What song will play at my funeral?
Walk This Way by Aerosmith
I kid you not, I am NOT making this stuff up!!
What type of men do I like?
Just Another Day by Oingo Boingo
Does this mean I like your basic odd, tech/geeky, 80s kinda guy? Ooh, I just missed “A Boy Names Sue” by Johnny Cash by two songs!
What is my day going to be like?
Get out of Ms Jackson’s Bed by 10000 Spoons
It’s an appologetic kind of song and I don’t think it bodes well for my day. The music is upbeat though.
Thanks for the distraction, Diane. I think.
