Go to your music player of choice and put it on shuffle. Say the following questions aloud, and press play. Use the song title as the answer to the question. NO CHEATING [yeah, right].
How does the world see you?
“Have a Cigar” Pink Floyd… I really had no idea that i had this bit of music…
Will I have a happy life?
“The Preacher” Charlie Robison I suppose there is some answer in there….
What do my friends really think of me?
“Teenage Lobotomy” by the Ramones….. Well, I guess that works for some of my friends…
Do people secretly lust after me?:
“Black Wind Blowing” By Billy Bragg, the Hamburg Concert from Archive.org
How can I make myself happy?
“I Dreamed I Saw Phil Ochs Last Night” by Billy Bragg…. I think this means yes.
What should I do with my life?
“Metal Firecracker” By Lucinda Williams I guess should tell someone they are my queen and my biker?
Will I ever have children?
“It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere” By Alan Jackson and Jimmy Buffet … That pretty much means no, I think. Oh well, ‘poor me something tall and strong, make a hurricane before i go insane, but i don’t care, it’s five o’clock somewhere’.
What is some good advice for me?
“Take Five” by the Dave Brubeck Quartet on the Double Live from the U.S.A. album. It seems pretty self-explanatory.
How will I be remembered?
“World Turned Upside Down” By Billy Bragg from the Vancouver, Vogue Theater show from Archive.org
“The world will be a common treasury for all.” yes, I could live with that.
What is my signature dancing song?
“Down Berry Wood” by Bad Manners. Again, I have no idea where this song came from. But yeah, I could dance to it I guess…
What do I think my current theme song is?
Blackbird by The Beatles. That’s what came up…. but everyone knows that the soundtrack that i generally hum to various parts of my life is the Indiana Jones Theme song, “Raiders March”.
What does everyone else think my current theme song is?
“Always on my Mind” by Willie Nelson and Johnny Cash on the Storytellers album. I guess this works pretty well, as I’m always thinking about everyone else and everything else instead of what i’m generally supposed to be directed to be thinking about.
What song will play at my funeral?
“Yégellé Tezeta” (My Own Memory) by Mulatu Astatqe Oh this is a pretty good song for my funeral actually. It is jazz, a dialogue between a sax and an organ that comes together in the end in some sort of back-beat synthesis.
What type of men/women do you like?
Women: “Shirley” By Billy Bragg live at the Phonecian club… Ok, that works….
Men: “Rudy Can’t Fail” The Clash
What is my day going to be like?
“O Morro Nao Tem Tez” (Somewhere in the Hills) [A.K.A. “Favela” live] by Vince Guaraldi & Bola Sete on Vince & Bola Any song that has 3 names…. this can’t be good.
