The soundtrack of my life

.
Ye gods! Mathman has turned down meme lane once more, and honks as he throws the paper through my window.

I've not seen this one before, though, and it's pretty cool. The rules:

1. Put your music player on Shuffle
2. For each question, press the Next button to get your answer.
3. YOU MUST WRITE THAT SONG NAME DOWN NO MATTER WHAT (this is in capital letters, so it is very serious).

2. WHAT WOULD BEST DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONALITY?
Crosseyed And Painless – Talking Heads

3. WHAT DO YOU LIKE IN A GUY/GIRL?
LaGrange - ZZ Top

4. HOW DO YOU FEEL TODAY?
Jammin’ – Bob Marley

5. WHAT IS YOUR LIFE’S PURPOSE?
Alabama Song (Whiskey Bar) - The Doors

6. WHAT IS YOUR MOTTO?

22. WHAT SHOULD YOU POST THIS AS?
The Man Who Loved Life – The Jayhawks


I'm thoroughly amazed at how some fit in so perfect, while others might have fit better under a different question. I'm also amazed that no Dead showed up, but I did get the Jerry/Merle Motown cover and the String Cheese version of "Eyes."

I am cross-posting this at Where The Vibe Is and invite my fellow musical authors (nat, Joe, Cheezy and Jefe) to post up their results there and/or on their own blogs. Hmm, I’m thinking I need to see Miz UV’s results as well. And what the hell, because he needs to make up his mind about blogging (and because I want to see 22 songs from his player) Fez Monkey can get on it also.

Some of those really fit! I'll do it in a few.
 
I don't have a music player. All I have is CDs and a DVD player that stopped working last week.
 
'Wolf at the Door' is a fantastic song isn't it? I'll do this soonish...
 
Gee thanks, O'Tim....yet something else for me to do. I did the Booze Test and came up as 80 something percent Lush, but it wouldn't post correctly on my blog. Ya beat me there. :)

T.
 
I especially like the personality one. :)
 
I had to play too! Even though nobody tagged me I couldn't resist!
 
Joe,
Sign up for a free account at Rhapsody.com and use their player. You have to pic the music first, though. :)

Also, I like that. I'm still going to do one, eventually. After finals probably...:)
 
Um, I meant PICK.

But you knew that, right?
 
"Sign up for a free account at Rhapsody.com and use their player. You have to pic the music first, though. :)"

Thanks for the info. Maybe after finals. Maybe.
 
Awesome mix of music, Tim. But then, I'm hardly surprised by that!
 
You have my favorite Talking Head song, "Cross-eyed and Painless".
