So, here's how it works:
1. Open your library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, iPod, etc)
2. Put it on shuffle
3. Press play
4. For every question, type the song that's playing
5. When you go to a new question, press the next button
6. Don't lie and try to pretend you're cool...
...For this exercise I just loaded the Rock/Pop tree, leaving out Amdient/Cosmic, Trance/Electronica, Soundtracks, etc, which still gives me 4743 tracks.
Jimmy Buffett - "Everybody's Got A Cousin In Miami"
Oh this could get weird.
Jethro Tull - "White Innocence"
I apparently wake up in a state of frustration. :-)
First Day At School:
Skriekback - "Keep-Net Stevenson"
The school, apparently, is Miskatonic
Falling In Love:
Dire Straits - "Your Latest Trick"
Oh, gods of randomness, please no!
Mark Knophler - "Sands Of Nevada"
I guess, the fight consists mostly of long slow camera pans over a ghost town before finally settling on a draw-down on the ruins of Main Street
John Mellencamp - "When Jesus Left Birmingham"
Jimmy Buffet - "Fins"
That's what you get for going stag!
Life is Good:
Melissa Ethridge - "All American Girl"
For values of "life is good" that include no sense of irony whatsoever
Madonna covering "American Pie"
Roxette - "Cry"
...Driving away from the breakup
Taco - "Puttin' on the Ritz"
Those were the days -- got my roaring '20s groove on!
Getting Back Together:
Hayseed Dixie - "You Shook Me All Night Long"
Oh. My. God. Oh yeah!
The Cure - "If Only Tonight We Could Sleep"
I marry a Deep One!?!?
Paying the Dues:
Saffron - "Snake Eyes"
My sister in-law's band. Woot! And, yeah, it's a dues paying tune.
The Night Before The War:
Jethro Tull - "Sweet Dreams"
Shriekback - Carrying Cameras
Don't shoot! I'm CNN!
Moment of Triumph:
Fleetwood Mac - "Little Lies"
You know, this runs pretty well with the war correspondent thing.
The Cure - "A Forest (Tree Mix)"
There's a fitting end.
suddenly i stop
but i know it's too late
i'm lost in a forest
the girl was never there
it's always the same
i'm running towards nothing
again and again and again
Joan Osborne - "Hurricane"
Live Fast, Die Hard, Leave A Lot Of Colateral Damage!
Done Mama Proud - "Time to Burn"
My sister in-law's other band. The usher's aren't shoing me out until I see the very last words roll up the screen
