Silly Music Fluff: Still Thrives This Love

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.
--------------------------

What do your friends think of you?
Give Me Novacaine (Green Day) [sorry, friends. I didn't realize it was that bad...]

How would you describe yourself?
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?
Drain You (Nirvana) [actually, yes. It was a fine day, but also strangely draining.]

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.]

Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me (U2) [on second thought, you can skip that last step]

What will you dance to at your wedding?
Simple (kd lang) [I wish we had.]

What will they play at your funeral?
When Your Mind's Made Up (Once) [no comment]

What is your hobby/interest?
Hamburg Song (Keane) [what? I'm a vegetarian! And I've never even been to Germany! And I don't even like Keane!]

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!]

What do you think of your friends?
You Can Make Him Like You (Hold Stead) [my friendships are the result of sheer force of will.]

What will you post this as?
Still Thrives This Love (kd lang)

With the crap I have on itunes I'm not going to attempt this one. As a dj some of the music I have to have makes me shudder really but hey it's my job.

Leo, your taste in music sounds a bit like my partners. Nuff said. :D

Alexandra said...
