Tina has a request up for advice on music--what are your top ten songs right now, basically. I think it's a great question, it's always awesome to get new music recommended to you and I think people's favorite stuff is actually pretty revealing.
In that vein, and to pop up out of my grad school funk and say hello, I present the following meme, which I'm sure everyone & their blogroll has done already, but I'm tagging Jess, of course, because I can and I always will.
What does your music library say about you?
1. Put Your iTunes on Shuffle.
2. For each question, press the next button to get your answer.
3. You must write down the name of the song no matter how silly it sounds!
4. Put any comments in brackets after the song name.

Give Me Novacaine (Green Day) [sorry, friends. I didn't realize it was that bad...]

You Can't Always Get Want You Want (Rolling Stones) [um! I'm actually relatively satisfied? I mean like broadly speaking? ::moving on::]
What do you like in a guy/girl?
Fidelity (Regina Spektor) [on my honor, I'm not rigging this. But pay attention, FG!]
How do you feel today?

You (Radiohead) [aw, well of course I think about you, dear reader.]
What do you think of your best friend?
Lies (Once) [I'm not sure I have a best friend at this juncture. Several very good ones which is probably more my style anyway. Do I think lies about them? Well, not on purpose, anyway. Maybe they lie to me sometimes. No one's perfect.]

What is your biggest fear?
Kurious Oranj (The Fall) [well, it does sound scary, doesn't it?]
What is your biggest secret?
Lullaby (The Cure) [now you know! I sometimes oversleep!]
