Have a little faith in me.

I love to read people's Friday Random ten posts to see inside the minds of fellow bloggers through their music choices. Now there's a meme going around that sheds further light on peoples music tastes by asking 22 questions to be answered by whatever "shuffle" on an iPod says.

Franiam tagged me with this meme.

I must say though, that I don't have much music on my iPod because it is mostly filled up with books. A cupla books will eat a gig fairly quickly. This is the reason I never post the random tens. But I tried this just for fun, and here is what I came up with:

The rules:

1. Put your music player on Shuffle
2. For each question, press the next button to get your answer.
3. YOU MUST WRITE THAT SONG NAME DOWN NO MATTER WHAT(this is in capital letters, so it is very serious.

1. IF SOMEONE SAYS “IS THIS OKAY” YOU SAY? Now I know how Morrissey felt - Mika

2. WHAT WOULD BEST DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONALITY? - Gone Today, Ollabelle

3. WHAT DO YOU LIKE IN A GUY/GIRL? - All American Courage, Alan Jackson*

4. HOW DO YOU FEEL TODAY? - Grace Kelly, Mika

5. WHAT IS YOUR LIFE’S PURPOSE? You are my sunshine, Carly Simon

6. WHAT IS YOUR MOTTO? Catch the wind - Donovan

7. WHAT DO YOUR FRIENDS THINK OF YOU? Color me America, Dolly Parton*

8. WHAT DO YOU THINK OF YOUR PARENTS? The Ballad of the Green Berets, SSgt Barry Sadler*

9. WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT VERY OFTEN? Flathead, the Fratellis

10. WHAT IS 2+2? Quiet Evening, Carly Simon

11. WHAT DO YOU THINK OF YOUR BEST FRIEND? Holloway Road, Ollabelle

12. WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE PERSON YOU LIKE? Sight of my Homeland, Tim Janis*

13. WHAT IS YOUR LIFE STORY? I will go sailing no more, Randy Newman

14. WHAT DO YOU WANT TO BE WHEN YOU GROW UP? The Rain, K-OS

15. WHAT DO YOU THINK WHEN YOU SEE THE PERSON YOU LIKE? Save Room, Jon Legend

16. WHAT DO YOUR PARENTS THINK OF YOU? The Ragged Old Flag, Johnny Cash*

17. WHAT WILL YOU DANCE TO AT YOUR WEDDING? Beautiful Disaster, Jon McLaughlin

18. WHAT WILL THEY PLAY AT YOUR FUNERAL? Little Wonders, Rob Thomas

19. WHAT IS YOUR HOBBY/INTEREST? Jerk it out, Caesars

20. WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST SECRET? I think it's going to rain, Bette Midler

21. WHAT DO YOU THINK OF YOUR FRIENDS? Born Losers, Matthew Good

22. WHAT SHOULD YOU POST THIS AS? Have a little faith in me, John Hiatt

*All the entries marked with an asterisk are there because I made a playlist for a fourth of July picnic with patriotic songs. But doesn't everybody have "The Ballad of the Green Berets" on their iPod?

This ponzey scheme ends with me. Surely four angels and six snowflake babies will die if I don't continue the chain, but there it is.

Enjoy John Hiatt.

Your list is great, you could not have made up better answers to some of the questions.

I don't actually have an i-pod, but I'll scramble the music library on the computer later and (maybe) post, if I am not too appalled by the answers.

As for the green beret thing, I think I still remember the words. We had the album when I was a kid. Along with an LP of Kennedy speeches, Alvin and the Chipmunks, King Kong (drama on disk), and more.

Jess- you are great and the snowflake babies will live on in heaven, so don't worry about them. Sheesh.

I now have the Green Beret song earworming its way through my head.

You have been a good sport to do this. Tengrain and Padre Mickey have also complied and Splotchy, tagged informally as well.

However, I think you may have something up your sleeve with the patriot act of music on your pod.

You are not some sort of secret operative who fell in love with us and now have some variation of blogger Stockholm Syndrome, are you? (Long f*cking sentence!)

Thanks my girl- you are the best.

I am getting the biggest kick out of reading these meme answers. What a diverse mix of music this corner of the blogosphere listens to.

Thanks for the John Hiatt. He gets tons of play on the old Chicago radio station I used to listen to, but here I have to search him out on the intertubes.

Funny, I feel a little Grace Kelly today too. I either want to marry into royalty, or drive off a cliff. I just can't decide which...

Tengrain said...

Jess -

I liked you before, but I think I love you now. The Green Berets?

Damn, nothing on my 'Pod could touch that.

Regards,

Tengrain
