This went out over the Facebook today, so I decided to give it a whack. But I'm posting here and not there, just because...
1. put the I-tunes on shuffle
2. use it to answer the questions in order
3. hit “next”
4. try not to cheat
1. How am I feeling today?
Razz – Kings of Leon
I don't know what that word means, but the song is a real burner. Wooh!
2. How far will I get in life?
I’m From Further North Than You – The Wedding Present
So, pretty far then? Note - I believe this title is applicable relative to every single person I have met in Buenos Aires except for Randall and Mike.
3. What is my best friend’s theme song?
Powerful Hankerin’- fIREHOSE
Well, that's true of all my friends. The question is, which one hankers for what? The answers, in random order: Beer, Love, Womanly Affection, Cigarettes, Speed (velocity, not the drug), Everything, A Baby, Adoration
4. What was high school like?
Almost Blue – Elvis Costello
Uhhhh, take out the almost?
5. How will today be?
Opus 40 – Mercury Rev
The day's almost over anyway.
6. What is in store for me this weekend?
Too Much of Anything – The Who
I can't wait!
7. What is the best thing about me?
Listening to Otis Redding at Home During Christmas – Okkervil River
Most accurate answer from the I-tunes yet.
8. What song describes my parents?
Circle the Fringes – The Gutter Twins
I have no idea what that is supposed to mean. I keep thinking of a rug they have that has fringes/tassles/whatevers that have never, ever been circled. Maybe it's due for circling?
9. How is my life going?
Good Old Funky Music – The Meters
10. What song will they play at my funeral?
Revolution Year Zero - The Poster Children
I like that this is the most upbeat song yet.
11. How does the world see me?
I’m a Man – Bo Diddley
12. What do my friends think of me?
Soulin’- J.J. Cale
Awwww... you people are too kind.
13. Do people secretly think I’m good looking?
Boplicity – Miles Davis
Since the song has no words and the title makes no sense, I assume that this is a solid "no." But one or two have said I'm good looking un-secretly.
14. How can I make myself happy?
I Wish I was a Motown Star – The Clifford Gilberto Rhythm Combination
Still looking for a remotely decent karaoke bar here. Actually, still looking for any karaoke bar here.
15. What should I do with my life?
I Can Only Give You Everything – The Troggs
You know, this is sadly apropos.
16. What is some good advice?
Tame - Pixies
Only advice-like line in the song: "fall on your face in those bad shoes". I think my I-tunes just insulted my wardrobe. Wouldn't be the first time.
17. Will I get married?
3XO - Pinback
Three times?!? Or is that three times zero? I'm so confused.
18. Where will I go in life?
You Can’t Judge a Book By Its Cover – Bo Diddley
Bo knows life.
19. Will I Have Kids?
I Get So Excited – The Equals
Hmmmm, quite the positive response from the I-tunes here. Unless that means I'm excited about not having kids. I guess it depends if I get married three times, eh?
20. What is my current theme song?
Ciao! - Lush
Chau, chau. Besos!
People, feel free to add your own results of this grand experiment in the comments section!!!
RIP Chris Cornell - *I’m not going to try to convince you of Chris Cornell’s greatness. By now you either like Soundgarden or you don’t. You appreciate his unique vocal talent...
