Over the Rainbow (music meme!)

Ok, I skip a lot of memes, so it's a little strange that I'm doing one that I don't have to do, but Sara Zarr stuck it up on her blog, it's possibly the best meme ever, and the questions sound very much like high school. That all makes it relevant for this space, right? So... let's have some fun!

Take your iPod in your hand:

1. Put your Music on shuffle.
2. For each question, press the next button to get your answer.
3. YOU MUST WRITE THAT SONG NAME DOWN NO MATTER HOW SILLY IT SOUNDS!


WHAT WOULD BEST DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONALITY?
Mr. Pinstripe Suit - Big Bad Voodoo Daddy (um... I did just buy a cool fedora inspired hat...)

WHAT DO YOU LIKE IN A GUY/GIRL?
So Long-Farewell-Goodbye - Big Bad Voodoo Daddy (omg. Kyle, you aren't allowed to leave me)

WHAT IS YOUR LIFE’S PURPOSE?
Mind Trick - Jamie Cullum (Am I diabolical or something? Has no one told me this?)

WHAT IS YOUR MOTTO?
Oh God - Jamie Cullum (is shuffle even working?)

WHAT DO YOUR FRIENDS THINK OF YOU?
My Funny Valentine - Michael Buble (that's better, if weird)

WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT VERY OFTEN?
(I am so scared to hit the forward button) That's the Way - Led Zeppelin (wait, what's this song actually about?)

WHAT IS 2+2?
Space Boy - Splender

Semi-Charmed Life - Third Eye Blind

WHAT DO YOUR PARENTS THINK OF YOU?
Jackass - Bloodhound Gang (BWAHAHAHAHHAHA!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA ...Mom?)

WHAT WILL YOU DANCE TO AT YOUR WEDDING?
Screaming at the Wailing Wall - Flogging Molly

WHAT WILL THEY PLAY AT YOUR FUNERAL?
Barroom Heroes - Dropkick Murphys (they appear to be disproportionately represented, also, I really don't want to die in a bar fight.)

WHAT IS YOUR HOBBY/INTEREST?
Lady Madonna - Beatles (This really would have been better under the parents question. Let's interpret this as I Like Art. 'Cause I do. Like Art.)

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST SECRET?
Blue Rain - Glenn Miller (lame...everyone knows that I'm in Seattle...and that I miss the 5-hour-away boyfriend...)

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF YOUR FRIENDS?
A Man's Gotta Do - Neil Patrick Harris, Felica Day & Nathan Fillion (Dr. Horrible! Yay!)

WHAT’S THE WORST THING THAT COULD HAPPEN?
I Could Write a Book - Harry Connick, Jr. (well, there goes that thought...)

HOW WILL YOU DIE?
(wait, I thought I was dying in a bar fight?) Queen Anne's Revenge - Flogging Molly (man, I'm really going to die violently, aren't I? sad.)

WHAT IS THE ONE THING YOU REGRET?
People Watching - Jack Johnson (heh)

WHAT MAKES YOU LAUGH?
In Too Deep - Sum 41 (laugh because I kinda can't believe that's on my iPod...)

WHAT MAKES YOU CRY?
The Way I Am - Ingrid Michaelson (aw.)

WILL YOU EVER GET MARRIED?
Next Door Blues - Harry Connick, Jr. (since the song is instrumental, I guess we're not supposed to know.)

IF SOMEONE SAYS “IS THIS OKAY” YOU SAY?
The Gauntlet - Dropkick Murphys (I totally do. It's all, "Is this ok?" and I'm like, "to The Gauntlet with you!")

WHAT SCARES YOU THE MOST?
The Mooche - Duke Ellington (dude, it's MY money!)

DOES ANYONE LIKE YOU?
I Can't Believe You're In Love With Me - Louis Armstrong (say it together now, awwwww)

IF YOU COULD GO BACK IN TIME, WHAT WOULD YOU CHANGE?
Ding-Dong! The Witch is Dead - Harry Connick, Jr. (???!?!?!)

WHAT HURTS RIGHT NOW?
Michelle - The Beatles (damn you Michelle)

WHAT WILL YOU POST THIS AS?
Over the Rainbow - Ingrid Michaelson (yeah, that's the way to do it, iPod, pick the least interesting title. Thanks. Love the cover, though)

Zarr didn't tag anyone, and I'm not sure it's a requirement, but Kyle, my love, you're done with exams, so you have to do it. Also, Shane. And Erin I think, when she gets a chance, because I'm interested to see what's on her iPod. The rest of the Kidlit world, feel free to do it, and if you do, let me know in the comments, 'cause I'm interested.

You writing a book is SO not the worst thing that could happen.

For example, it could get published.
OOOOOOOOOOOOOHHH. Got you back for earlier tonight. :)

Sara Z. said...

Ha, love the parents answer. (I'm sure they think very highly of you.)

Sonia said...

Love this Jackie!! Just did it, my favorite was "what is your life's purpose"? Material Girl by Madonna :)

Erin said...

OH my gosh this was HILARIOUS.

Hm...I did it but my answers weren't very interesting. :P

I'll tell you the best ones:

What's your Motto? The Best is Yet to Come by Michael Buble

What will they play at your funeral? Gimme Three Steps by Lynyrd Skynyrd

and my personal favorite - Will you ever get married? Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps by Doris Day

:)

Anne said...

Hmmm, I may have to tackle this a little later.

holly cupala said...

Ha! I don't know, many of them seem pretty appropriate to me (except probably not the bar fight...can't see that one happening).

I did a similar meme not long ago, from Sarahbear.

Oh, and you left your prize at my house! Guess that means we're just going to have to get together.

HA! What a hilarious meme. I did it, too--I think my favorite was:

WHAT IS YOUR HOBBY/INTEREST?
Post Cold War Politics - Fishbone.

Jackie said...

hehe! I had no idea you loved Post Cold War Politics so much, Sarah!
