1. Put your music player on shuffle.
2. Press forward for each question.
3. Use the song title as the answer to the question.

Tee hee hee. I am not, as Dave Barry would say, making any of this up.

  • What does next year have in store for me?
    Only Hope by Switchfoot

    "There's a song that's inside of my soul/It's the one that I've tried to write over and over again/I'm awake in the infinite cold/But You sing to me over and over again. So I lay my head back down/And I lift my hands and pray/To be only yours/I know now You're my only hope."

  • What does your love life look like?
    Nothing Else Matters by Metallica

    "So close, no matter how far/Couldn't be much more from the heart/Forever trusting who we are/And nothing else matters. Never open myself this way/Life is ours, we live it our way/All these words I don't just say/And nothing else matters. Trust I seek and I find in You/Ev'ry day for something new/Open mind for a different view/And nothing else matters."

  • What do I say when life gets hard?
    The Show Must Go On by Queen

    "Empty spaces/What are we living for?/Abandoned places/I guess we know the score/On and on/Does anybody know what we are looking for? Another hero/Another mindless crime/Behind the curtain/In the pantomime/Hold the line/Does anybody want to take it anymore? SHOW MUST GO ON! Inside my heart is breaking/My makeup may be flaking/But my smile still stays on."

  • What do I think of when I get up in the morning?
    Havana from Guys and Dolls

    OK, it's an instrumental piece, but it's the biggest dance number in G&D and it has rather been plaguing my nights!

  • What song will I dance to at my wedding?
    Can't Take It In by Imogen Heap

    "Can't close my eyes/They're wide awake/Ev'ry hair on my body/Has got a thing for this place/Oh empty my heart/I've got to make room for this feeling/So much bigger than me/It couldn't be any more beautiful - I can't take it in." Le sigh.

  • What do you want as a career?
    Hello Beastie from Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest

    Again, another instrumental suite - but, boo-yeah. Captain Jack Sparrow going into the belly of the beast, that's about it mates.

  • Your favorite saying?
    She Likes Me for Me by Blessed Union of Souls

    "She don't care about my car/And she don't care about my money/And that's real good 'cause I don't got a lot to spend/But if I did, it wouldn't mean nothin'/She likes me for me!/...But what she sees/Are my faults and indecisions/My insecure conditions/And the tears upon the pillow that I shed."

  • Favorite place?
    I Am the Voice by Eimear Quinn

    "I hear your voice on the wind/And I hear you call out my name./Listen my child you say to me/I am The Voice of your history/Be not afraid - come follow me/Answer my call and I'll set you free./I am The Voice in the wind and the pouring rain/I am The Voice of your hunger and pain/I am The Voice that always is calling you/I am The Voice and I will remain"

    Hrm, so either Ireland or the past....

  • What do you think of your parents?
    Lady Come Down from The Importance of Being Earnest

    "The Western wind is blowing fair/Across the dark Aegean sea/And at the secret marble stair/My Tyrian galley waits for thee/Come down the purple sail is spread/The watchman sleeps within the tower/O leave thy lily flowered bed/O lady mine, come down!"

    Apparently, my parents are living in an Oscar Wilde comedy of manners. And my father serenades my mother. Freakishly true.

  • Where would you go on a first date?
    Party Preparations from Chocolat

    So, this either means that I'll feverishly invite someone over for the hustle and bustle and hurly and burly of a family cramped home party (entirely likely), or we'll all go to a French patisserie (more yummy, but less likely, alas).

  • Drug of choice?
    The Strenuous life by Scott Joplin

    Heeeeey! No fair playing the workaholic card! (But the highly talented and creatively inclined workaholic card....)

  • Describe yourself.
    Who Will Save Your Soul? by Jewel

    "People living their lives for you on TV/They say they're better than you and you agree/He says "Hold my calls for me I must go"/Says "Come here boys, there ain't nothing for free"/Another doctor's bill, a lawyer's bill/Another cute cheap thrill/You know you love him if you put in your will/Who will save your soul when it comes to the flower/Who will save your soul after all the lies that you told, boy/Who will save your soul if you won't save your own?"

    Hrm. Not Another Opening, Another Show? ;P

  • What is the thing I like doing most?
    Not Quite Paradise by Bliss

    "Take the path of least resistance/Into the great unknown/No directory assistance/Now you're on your own/If you're looking for a new earth/Just open up your eyes/Because it's not quite paradise/But it sure feels like home/It'll be all right/Though it's not quite/Paradise"

    So, appparently, everything on the earth?

  • The song that best describes the president?
    Night on the Balcony by Philip Glass

    A fragile harpsichord piece in repeating fugal Glassean tone, created as incidental music for The Screens which is about Algerian-British unrest and civil strife. Pick a metaphor.

  • What is my state of mind like at moment?
    Bittersweet Symphony by the Verve

    " 'Cause it's a bittersweet symphony, this life/Trying to make ends meet/You're a slave to money then you die/I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down/You know the one that takes you to the places/where all the veins meet yeah/No change, I can't change/I can't change, I can't change/But I'm here in my mind/I am here in my mind/But I'm a million different people/from one day to the next/I can't change my mind/No, no, no/Well I never pray/But tonight I'm on my knees yeah/I need to hear some sounds that recognize the pain in me, yeah/I let the melody shine, let it cleanse my mind, I feel free now/But the airways are clean and there's nobody singing to me now"

  • How will I die?
    Sunset Soon Forgotten by Iron and Wine

    "Be this sunset soon forgotten/Your brothers left here shaved and crazy/We’ve learned to hide our bottles in the well/And what's worth keeping, sun still sinking/Down and down/Once again/Down and down/Gone again/Be this sunset one for keeping/This june bug street sings low and lovely/Those band-aid children/Chased your dog away/She runs, returning, sun still sinking/Down and down/Once again/Down and down/Gone again"

    Say it along with the Far Side now, "D-mn fool rode off into the sunset again."

  • The song that will be played at your funeral?
    The Imperial March: The Empire Strikes Back by John Williams


    Tee hee.

    Music: The last above
    Thought: And this one's wet and this one's wet and this one's wet....
