Meme madness

My version of the iTunes oracle meme (from Playing School, Irreverently, pointed out very nicely by someone who means a lot to me)...

Instructions: Go to your music player of choice and put it on shuffle. Say the following questions aloud, and press play. Use the song title as the answer to the question. NO CHEATING.

How does the world see me?
Idiot Boyfriend (Jimmy Fallon). Oh dear. Oh dear oh dear oh dear. At least it wasn't Britney Spears' "Toxic". Then I'd have to admit I've got some Britney on my playlist. Oh wait. Damn.

Will I have a happy life?
Revolution (Grandaddy - their cover of the Beatles song). Apparently, I will have a happy life. And be Che. Well, you know, we all want to change the world.

What do my friends really think of me?
Downtown Train (Patty Smyth). Does this mean: they want me to get on a train and away from them? Or the less paranoid explanation (once the meds kick in) - that I'm at heart a downtown person?

Do people secretly lust after me?
Make Out Fall Out Make Up (Love is All). Ooh. As the magic 8-ball would say: signs point to yes.

How can I make myself happy?
The Battle (Medasyn with Frost P, Zuz Rock, Lady Sovereign and Shystie) - ah the secret to happiness. Grime battles and showing off my mad skills.

What should I do with my life?
Pearl's Girl (Underworld). I should "do" Pearl's Girl? That sounds very wrong.

Will I ever have children?
Like to Get to Know You Well (Howard Jones). Cryptic. Apparently before I ever have kids I will first need to try cheesy pickup lines.

What is some good advice for me?
Runaround (Blues Traveller). That's good advice? All right then, I'm going on the lam.

How will I be remembered?
Pastime Paradise (Stevie Wonder). "Been spendin' most my life livin' in a pastime paradise..." Well, I suppose being remembered in an idyllic fashion is a good thing.

What is my signature dancing song?
Rock the Casbah (The Clash vs Lost Vegas - it's a bootleg mix). Yeah! Rock the Casbah!

What do I think my current theme song is?
I Second That Emotion (Smokey Robinson and the Miracles). My theme song is on reciprocating love and devotion? Very nice. And possibly true.

What does everyone else think my current theme song is?
Something About the Music (Da Slammin' Phrogz). Apparently, though, everyone thinks I'm just a music man, in love with the beat.

What song will play at my funeral?
Time After Time (Miles Davis). Actually, this wouldn't be a bad song to hear at a funeral. Although I'd go with the Gemma Hayes version just because it might be nice to have vocals.

What type of men/women do I like?
Men: Funk on a Roll (James Brown). Yeah, I guess it's cool to have funky friends.
Women: Don't Dream It's Over (Crowded House). On the other hand, apparently my female friends are wistful romantics.

What is my day going to be like?
What's My Name? (DJ Earworm - some super mashup) Apparently I was anonymous today. Pretty much.



That was going fine until I got to "What will I do with my life?" and got "It's Over". Add to that the fact that my funeral song is apparently "Tomorrow is Another Day", and I am seriously worried.
