Shuffle Your Life

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
Awwwwww riiiighhht.

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
Thank goodness.

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!!!

Reed - this was more fun then I expected it to be. Some of the results were a little distressing. Apparently I can make myself happy with The Devil's Workday (Modest Mouse). But others were good. My current theme song is Lauryn Hill's Superstar.

Hope things are good in your neck of the woods.
