RG Sing Along

Posted on Saturday 31 May 2008

A fellow blogger keeps urging his readers to do the iPod shuffle meme–put the iPod on shuffle and write down the next 12 or so titles that come up. A variation I’ve seen is to have the song titles answer a set of questions in the order they appear. So, while I wait for the rain to stop before I head out for a run, here’s the story of my life as answered by the next 13 songs on my Nano ๐Ÿ™‚

How does the world see me? It’s Different for Girls, Joe Jackson

Will I have a happy life? Emotion, Destiny’s Child

Do people secretly lust after me? Fantasy, Earth, Wind and Fire

How can I make myself happy? Island in the Sun, Weezer

What should I do with my life? Sailing Man, Neil Halstead

Will I ever have children? Left Behind, Aqualung

What is some good advice for me? I Had Too Much to Dream (Last Night), Electric Prunes (gotta love that name for a band)

How will I be remembered? Invisible Girl, Minnie Driver

What is my signature dance song? Incense and Peppermints, Strawberry Alarm Clock

What do I think my current theme song is? Just Like Heaven, The Cure

What song will play at my funeral? Somebody’s Crying, Chris Isaak

What type of men do I like? Wishing on a Star, Rose Royce

What is my day going to be like? She Will Be Loved, Maroon 5

Gives one pause, yes?

    Maybe I should add it’s because I can’t seem to find a need for one – most of the time I want music I’m at home or in the car, and both have a CD player

    Earth, Wind, and Fire is my favorite cruising music. I find myself dancing in the seat when I’m driving to their music. On-lookers must have quite a laugh, but I’m enjoying myself, and that’s all that matters.
