    What Does Your Music Library Say About You?

    We all have that one friend that sends us every idiotic email forward on the planet, despite the fact that you've threatened their very lives if they don't stop. I got another one of them today, and, since I was busily staring at the wall at the time it arrived, I decided to play along. So, you guys play along too.

    Open up your media player or grab your ipod. Set it to shuffle. Answer the following questions with the sequence of songs that comes up. No cheating by skipping through songs!

    How does the world see you?
    Silent Sigh - Badly Drawn Boy

    Will I have a happy life?
    Obsession - Animotion

    What do people really think of me?
    I Was Hoping - Alanis Morrissette

    Do I have any admirers?
    Can't Trust It - Public Enemy ()

    How can I make myself happy?
    The Smurfs Theme Song (this is my favorite one)

    What should I do with my life?
    Near Wild Heaven - REM

    Will I get (or stay) married?
    You Get What You Give - New Radicals (fair enough)

    What is some good advice for me?
    Born Slippy - Underworld (..okay)

    How will I be remembered?
    American Baby - Dave Matthews Band

    What is my signature dancing song?
    Linger - Cranberries

    What do I think my current theme song is?
    Lolly, Lolly, Lolly Get Your Adverbs Here - Buffalo Tom (this is also a favorite)

    What does everyone else think my current theme song is?
    Toccata Al Fugue Techno Remix (awesome)

    What song will play at my funeral?
    Busted Stuff - Dave Matthews Band ()

    What type of men/women do I like?
    You Gots To Chill - EPMD

    What is my day going to be like?
    Big Pimpin' - Jay Z

    Now, if you'll excuse me, I apparently have some hos to go put in check.

    ETA: Good thinking, Manny. I got these out of 2493 choices. And I still had to admit that I have Animotion downloaded.
