I saw this on Pesky’Apostrophe and just had to do one for myself. So in lieu of the usual random ten, you are getting an unusual random 15.
You put your music player of choice on random, and use the songs to answer the questions. Not all of them will make sense, of course. But as you will see, some of them are damn funny. Some are even a little spooky.
1) How does the world see you?
Early Morning - A-Ha
Well that’s impossible. No one ever sees me in the early morning and lives to tell the tale.
2) Will I have a happy life?
Lullaby of London - The Pogues*
This is sort of a sad song, but it’s pretty (and I guess the haunted grave thing sort of fits me).
May the wind that blows from haunted graves
Never bring you misery
May the angels bright
Watch you tonight
And keep you while you sleep
*By the way, you can actually listen to this one on the radio blog right now.
3) What do my friends really think of me?
Why Can’t I Be You? - The Cure
Well now that’s just freaking hilarious. And I think I’ll leave it at that.
4) Do people secretly lust after me?
Over and Over Again (Lost and Found) - Clap Your Hands Say Yeah
Oh yeah. Just call me your lusty blogging goddess.
5) How can I make myself happy?
Let It Be - The Beatles
There are many ways I could interpret this. Be less picky. Be more lazy. Be less stubborn. I think I’ll just assume it means I don’t have to clean this weekend.
6) What should I do with my life?
Numb - U2
So, I should start self-medicating then? Or maybe just become a drunk.
7) Will I ever have children?
Endless Vacation - The Ramones
Vacations with kids suck. So no kids. There. That was easy.
8) What is some good advice for me?
There Is No Greater Love - Billie Holiday
That’s corny. Guess I can only interpret that as “Don’t take your lover for granted” or some bullshit like that.
9) How will I be remembered?
Stay (Faraway So Close) - U2
Dressed up like a car crash
The wheels are turning but you’re upside down
10) What is my signature song?
Bullet the Blue Sky
Not sure if this fits me, but at least it’s U2. There are moments though, like in Death Valley, when this song is on full blast inside my brain. And I can see those fighter planes…
11) What do I think my current theme song is?
Lyin’ Eyes - The Eagles
The question is, who am I fooling?
12) What does everyone else think my current theme song is?
Over the Hills and Far Away - Led Zeppelin
Many times I’ve lied - Many times I’ve listened
Many times I’ve wondered how much there is to know.
13) What song will play at my funeral?
Other Voices - The Cure
14) What type of men/women do I like?
Charmless Man - Blur
Alright, I’m not touching that one. (See #8.)
15) What is my day going to be like?
Don’t Worry About The Government - The Talking Heads
So… I guess I’ll have to do my taxes tomorrow. Oh shit! I still have to do my taxes!!
