Music Shuffle Meme

This one’s pretty amusing. Picked it up from some LiveJournals. Here’s how it works: set your mp3 player to shuffle, read the question aloud, and then write down the song title as response to the question. Here’s my results:

How does the world see you?
Rien de Rien, by Edith Piaf According to Linda, the title means ‘Nothing at all.’ That’s not too heartening, but maybe I’ve just gone under the radar…

Will I have a happy life?
She Loves You, by the Beatles This is a definite, “Yes.” Woo-hoo!

What do my friends really think of me?
Cool Vibes, by Vanilla Ninja Oh good, the Swiss entry from last year’s Eurovision. What can I say? I like melodramatic music, and I do indeed exude cool vibes.

What do people secretly think of me?
It’s Probably Me, by Sting (with Eric Clapton) Hrrrrm.

How can I be happy?
Something’s Gotten Hold of My Heart, Gene Pitney & Marc Almond Well, this is true, and I’m happy. (“I’m a something?!”, said something asks in an outraged voice.)

What should I do with my life?
Under the Boardwalk, by the Drifters So either I become a panhandler in Santa Cruz, or maybe it’s just generally suggesting that Linda and I move to warmer climes. Hum.

Will I ever have children?
Y Tu, Que Has Hecho, from the Buena Vista Social Club That would be transliterated to, ‘And you, what have you done?’ Linda wonders if I’ve got an illegitimate child squirreled away somewhere after that one. Doh!

What is some good advice for me?
We’re Not Gonna Take It, by Twisted Sister Miscreants of the board, beware! I’m not gonna take it any more—no, I’m not gonna take it!

How will I be remembered?
I Touch Myself, by the Divynls I knew I should have turned the webcam off that one night in chat… (This one was the one that set Linda and I rolling, and made me decide to post the damned thing in the first place.

What is my signature dancing song?
You Lost that Loving Feeling, by the Righteous Brothers This one matches the extent of my dancing ability extremely well. Standing in one spot and swaying a bit is about all I can manage.

What do I think my current theme song is?
Breath of Life, by Erasure Not bad. It’s got a great beat, Dick, and I can


sway to it.

What does everyone else think my current theme song is?
Popcorn, by Jean Michel Jarre This one makes me nervous. Does this mean everyone else thinks I’m nervous?

What song will play at my funeral?
Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch, by the Temptations Yes, it’ll be Linda’s fault.

What type of men/women do you like?
Sweet Dreams, by the Eurythmics With one exception, this works. Salma and Nicole, you’re only in my dreams….

What is my day going to be like?
This is not the End, by French Revolution Endless weekend! All right!
