A Musical Meme'

Hi fellow Blogesians!  Here's a meme that comes from the music page of my ipod. I saw it and thought it looked like a heap of fun topped with a hack of spit!  So I said "What the HEY!  Let's do this thing!" All you do is put your player on "shuffle" and answer the questions with the song title.  Piece-o-cake. I usually listen to podcasts so we'll see together what musical bits come up.

1) How would you describe yourself?
RUSH(4th Avenue Jones)-Ok, yes I HAVE been known to take procrastinating to the level of extreme sporting-only to later become a damage causing tornado to get myself ready for the event I had ignored earlier.

2) What do you like in a guy/girl?
Kid A(John Mayer)- What is with these songs!  Is this my I-pod?  Oh yeah, I let my husband load it with things he thought I'd like.  Apparently I don't use the MUSIC feature too much on this thing because I've never heard these first two.

3) What is your motto?
Under the Weather(K.T. Tunstall)- Oops, I guess I do use this excuse a lot but it's not the BEST motto to adopt.

4) What do your friends think of you?
John Lee Supertaster(They Might Be Giants)- Alrighty then, this one I know.  I guess my friends are confusing my taster with my smeller.  It is John Lee Super.

5) What do you think about often?
Stoppin' the Love(K.T. Tunstall-again?)- I'll admit I think about this precisely once a month.  It never fails at this particular time each uh...shall we say full moon(howl!), I seriously consider packing up my fat clothes and moving into my van. LEAVE ME ALONE-GAWSH!

6) What do your parents think of you?
Smile(Lilly Allen)-Finally something nice!  Wait a minute, I forgot this is kind of a mean song "At first, when I see you cry yi yi, It makes me smi i ile.  Yes it makes me smi i ile."  NO!  They would NEVER! (runs off crying-because after all I'm a people pleaser)
7) What do you think of your best friend?
Take Me Away(4th Avenue Jones-is this thing mixing?)-"Take me away to the nearest coffee joint!" I believe is the full title

8) What do you think of the person you like? 
Let's Hear That String Part Again(Sufjan Stevens)-I have no clue how to interpret this but I just LOVE anything by Sufjan S!  hearts

9) What do you want to be when you grow up?
Shame for You(Lilly Allen)-"Well now Shannon let's just check the catalog and see what classes are required for this 5th and hopefully final change of majors. Oh well, after all these years it looks like you will be graduating with a B.S. in Shame with a double minor in quality friend making and money sucking. Congratulations!"

10) What do you think when you see the person you like?
Overjoyed(Jars of Clay)- We have a match!

11) What song will they play at your wedding?
All This Time(Sting)- Now, these are finally making sense.

12) What will they play at your funeral?
All good Naysayers Speak Up or Forever Hold Your Peace(Sufjan Stevens)-Well, it's a question too late but I simply can't fudge the list.  It does make for an interesting choice for my funeral though.  I'm sure it would get a few eyebrow raises but once the negative talk ball starts rollin' the party really gets GOIN'! 

13) What is your hobby/interest?
Bed,Bed,Bed(They Might Be Giants) SCORE!!  Now the Shano-Nano tells true!
(update: Terroni! Sleeping! Sleeping is an interest, even a hobby for me at times.  I speak of nothing else here cheeky girl!!:)

14) What is your biggest fear?
Soul Meets Body(Death Cab for Cutie)-Interesting.  Verrry Interesting.  I thought it was having a toad hop on me. 

15) What is your biggest secret?
Desert Rose(Sting)-Post Secret- I don't water my roses. SHARP INHALE OF SHOCK!

16) What do you think of your friends?
Head over Heals(Tears for Fears)-Awwww...My ALL TIME Favorite group comes up when I think of my friends. I am, in fact, head over heals for all of you. I'm biting my lip and shaking my head right now as well as Bill Clinton ever did.

17) What is your theme song?
Change(Tears for Fears-ipod hates to leave them just yet)-Wait a minute here!  Am I running for office?

18) What do you think of your family?
Monumental Continental(4th Avenue Jones)-These lyrics say it all. "Stretched out four-door Continental. Enough for me plus all my kinfolk. That's how we rollin'!"

19) What is your best friend's theme song?
Mad World(Tears for Fears-yet again!)-Looks like my little i-poddy's got a sense of humor.  OH YOU!! pinch pinch

20) What is your mood right now?
Out of Egypt, Into the Great Laugh of Mankind and I shake the dirt from my sandals(Sufjan Stevens)- Well, I uh, didn't realize a mood could be so specific.

21) If your heart could talk what would it say?
White Shadows(Cold Play)- There just aren't any dark ones in there.  It's all fairy dust and butterflies so I'm sure my heart would sound like Tinkerbell if the little darlin' could talk.

22) What do your co-workers think of you?
Breathe(Anna Nalick)- The lyrics are saying something about unraveling my latest mistake. This is a dumb meme.

23) What does your future look like?

Clap your hands(They Might be Giants)- They seem to have the most appropriate songs on my Nano.  Yeah for bright futures!!  And the end of long memes.  Clap Clap Clap Clap!

First off, let me say that I have NE-VAH heard of 90 percent of those you mentioned--"Death Cab for Cutie"? Are you kidding with that, or what?

Tears for Fears, I got. And TMBGs. But what is with that LOOOONG name title? Where did Erasure go? You too hip, girl. Which brings me to point two--MY ipod should be here tomorrow, and I think you should come over and help me set it up. 'Course my music library contains groups like Air Supply, Queen, and yes, Erasure. (Have you forgotten singing "Give a little respect to-o-oo mee-ee" in my Dodge Colt? Have we drifted apart so far? Why did you grow and change, leaving me to stand alone, clutching the tatters of my mispent youth? Why? WHY??)

Sniff. We will always have Nutty Bars.

Shan, I mentioned to Dive that I must be in a time warp because I don't know most of those songs although I have of course heard of some of them. I'm off to YouTube - again!

dive said...

Cool, Shan!
I'm glad you did the meme; it is so much fun.
You've got some great songs on your nano.
I love They Might Be Giants, K.T. Tunstall and Sufjan Stevens.
And it's good to see Death Cab For Cutie getting in there, too.

Shan said...

Blue Bots don't despair! I'm still there with you and Erasure! Jamey loaded my music from HIS i-tunes because I never bother with finding my own. It of course is missing many things like Abba and all of my delicious showtunes not to mention our favorite 80's peeps. I just don't devote as much time to music listening as I no doubt should.

Huh Dive. You DO have diverse tastes! :) Thanks for the memie fun!

Mme: Warning! You might want to avoid 4th Ave Jones! Those guys are hard core hip hoppy!! I ONLY know them because of my hubby. It wouldn't go well with your serene lifestyle. ;)

Tally said...

What is meme? It's making me cranky. Just tell me.

Maria said...

Laughing...mine was like too. I was just...bewildered. I like Dive's the best.

Terroni said...

Huh...I may have to jump on the bandwagon and do this one later. You know, if I'm not too busy studying, or, like you, SCORING in bed.

Shan said...

Terroni where on earth did you...OH I DID SAY THAT DIDN'T I? I'm off to clear things up right this minute! As for you, eyes to the bookwork young lady!! You've got to do some major SCORING on the boards! ;)

Tally said...

Alright, I'm not so cranky anymore. Thanks for explaining. I really think your scary toad experience deserves its own entry. I could use a good laugh.

Koi said...

k so your gonna have to tell me what meme is too. I'm clueless, but not cranky like Trish.

I really appreciate your taste in Music. I'm starting to think we have a lot in common. But please, please, please introduce 'africablue' to "Death Cab for Cutie." She likes nutty bars and Erasure, now she just gotsta like "Death Cab" yo!

Scout said...

I love reading these memes and finding out what everyone is listening to. Sufjan is a dollbaby.

Shazza said...
