iPod meme (a.k.a. Son Of Return Of The Meme!)

I promised I wasn't going to do this until the weekend but dang it, I have nothing else interesting to post today (HA! Like that's ever stopped me...). Snowelf tagged me on this one, I also read Mike M's fine version of this meme, and thought it was my turn...

Here are the rules:

1. Put your iTunes/ 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

WHAT WOULD BEST DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONALITY?
Sinner's Prayer - Ray Charles/B.B. King

WHAT DO YOU LIKE IN A GUY/GIRL?
What I Can Do For You - Sheryl Crow
"What I can do for you/there's no one else on God's green earth can do..." NICE...

HOW DO YOU FEEL TODAY?
Lovesick Blues - George Strait
Uh, my wife is out with some girlfriends tonight, so maybe iTunes thinks I'm heartbroken or something?

WHAT IS YOUR LIFE’S PURPOSE?
Stay A Little Longer - Willie Nelson
I've always said I want to live to be 110 years old - my 110th birthday will be on July 4th, 2076 - our country's tricentennial. Hey, I can only be wrong once...

WHAT IS YOUR MOTTO?
Brother Wolf, Sister Moon - The Cult
"Hang your head/no more.../and beg/no more..."

WHAT DO YOUR FRIENDS THINK OF YOU?
Distant Shore - Dierks Bentley
Uh, maybe iTunes that I'm out of touch a lot and sometimes I take a really really really long time to call them back when they leave me voicemails?

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF YOUR PARENTS?
Stir It Up - Bob Marley and the Wailers
Hm...I guess I was a compliant, good little boy growing up--now, I'm living my life the way I want to so I've "stirred it up" a little since I was a kid? I'm reaching here...

WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT VERY OFTEN?
A Lot of Things Different - Kenny Chesney
About a man who, if he had his life to do over again, would do the things he was too afraid to do the first time.

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF YOUR BEST FRIEND?
Regatta De Blanc - The Police
WTH?

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE PERSON YOU LIKE?
New York State of Mind - Billy Joel
Even when I'm far away, my thoughts are still with that person and I can't wait to get back to them...

WHAT IS YOUR LIFE STORY?
The Space Between - Dave Matthews Band
Again, WTH?

WHAT DO YOU WANT TO BE WHEN YOU GROW UP?
Good Christian Men, Rejoice - artist unknown (compilation CD)

WHAT DO YOU THINK WHEN YOU SEE THE PERSON YOU LIKE?
Treat Street - George Winston
I swear, people, I didn't cheat on this one!!!!

WHAT DO YOUR PARENTS THINK OF YOU?
Angel Flying Too Close To The Ground - Willie Nelson

WHAT WILL THEY PLAY AT YOUR FUNERAL?
I'll Take That As A Yes - Phil Vassar
Again, oh great iTunes, I ask you WTH??? A song about two people getting it on and ending up having sex in a hot tub? EEEW, so inappropriate for a funeral...

WHAT IS YOUR HOBBY/INTEREST?
Angel - Aerosmith
Uh, spending time with my "angel" (that would, of course, be the Mrs...)

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST SECRET?
Come A Little Closer - Dierks Bentley
HA!

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF YOUR FRIENDS?
Still Listening - Steven Curtis Chapman
Again I say, "HA!"

WHAT SHOULD YOU POST THIS AS?
Missionary Man - Eurythmics
"I was born an original sinner/I was born from original sin/and if I had a dollar bill/for all the things I'd done/there'd be a mountain of money/piled up to my chin..." Yep...that about sums it up...

So, who do I tag now? I'm tagging the first 5 blogger friends who come to my mind, regardless of how well we know each other (or not)...

  1. Daniel
  2. Mona
  3. Suchsimplepleasures (who has a pinched nerve now, according to her last post, and so gets a hall pass on this for a while)
  4. Charles
  5. Flash

Full disclosure:
  • I used the iTunes program, rather than my iPod, to do this. But Mike did it with a non-iPod device, so I figure that's OK.
  • The first time I did it, I cheated (oh, the shame! The horror!). So I started over again and stayed true to my slightly modified rules (see #3 below)
  • Er, I kinda still cheated a little, because I skipped over anything classical (chamber, baroque, whatever). I mean...what kind of meaning can you derive from "Toccata and Fugue in D Minor"? Besides, what's a meme without a few tweaks?
  • Isn't it kind of cool that the print on this is so small, it seems like some legal mumbo-jumbo at the bottom of a contract?
  • Bella helped daddy write this post--she sat about an inch away from the computer screen and tried playing "fetch" with the cursor while I wrote. SO CUTE, but I guess you had to be there...
  • Hey Snow don't get all mad that I didn't tag you...cuz I know you already did this.
  • Hey Snow don't get all mad that I said "Snow don't get all mad" because I know you are the sensitive type. (C:

hey...it's my turn to tag you! i have a meme over at my blog, for you!

snowelf said...

Rofl!! You're so funny!!
Jim, I'm so not mad!! :) How could I be mad at you? It's not like I left you a voice mail and you took me a really, really, really long time to call me back or something... :P

That is so freakin' cool about your b-day! I want you to live to be 110 now too!! I had to add it up with my calculator because Snowelf.hates.math, but I will only be 100 on that date! I'll email you an e-card from my nursing home.
Can you imagine what the technology will be like then?! That's worth sticking around for in itself!! ;)

Thanks for playing!!

Snow glad you are not mad...:P Oh and re: birthday, I have the most KICK ARSE birthday in the history of birthdaydom (at least it's cool for Americans)--always off work, it's always a party, and there are roughly 6 months between birthday toys and Christmas toys...

By the time we're 110 and 100 respectively, transporter technology will have been perfected (a la Star Trek), so we'll just beam over to each other's cribs to hang out and whatnot...

Very cool meme Jim. I did this one a few weeks ago. I have a lot of fun with it.
