iTunes Song Shuffle Survey

1. Shuffle your iPod/MP3 player/iTunes/Whatever else you have.
2. Answer the questions by the song title that comes up.
3. Don't cheat, it makes everything more fun!

[One] What is your life going to be like in five years?
Song: Marvin Gaye - I Want You
Comment: "Don't play with something you should cherish for life, Don't you wanna care, Ain't it lonely out there"
That doesn't sound very promising!!

[Two] How is your love life going for you right now?
Song: Nina Simone - Feeling Good
Comment: Yeah.. Feeling good.. I'm generally content with my honey.

[Three] What pisses you off the most about the opposite sex?
Song: Celldweller - Birthright - Speed Racer Soundtrack
Comment: I guess, I just don't like being held down, looked down and utterly limited simply because I'm female, and trust me, it happens a lot more often than you'd like to believe. It's just so integrated within our cultures that there are times we practice such prejudice without even knowing it.

[Four] What do your parents really think of you?
Song: Tangerine Dream - Risky Business - The Classic Chillout Album
Comment: In relation to Song Number 3, yes. *laughs

[Five] What do you think about the world and its current state?
Song: 1791 Mozart: Clarinet Concerto in A, 2nd movement
Comment: A delicate song that shifts between a soloist and an orchestra. A slow, peaceful piece that reminds you of the need to weigh both personal and social needs, and only through such a carefully balanced interplay between the two can one achieve harmonious and beautiful music as Mozart's Clarinet Concerto.

[Six] What is the worst thing that's ever happened to you?
Song: Gavin DeGraw - In Love WIth A Girl
Comment: Not in the truest sense, but yes, I was overly obsessed with a girl, a friend, and was willing to tolerate being an underdog to her until I realized what was actually happening to me.

[Seven] What will your first/next time having sex be like?
Song: Wadini - Toure Kunda - Putumayo Presents: Travel the World with Putumayo
Comment: I don't know what this song is about, I just like its relaxing beat. Does that mean I get to "travel the world"?

[Eight] What is your main goal in life?
Song: 175R - SAKURA
Comment: Another song I don't understand. Does that mean I don't know what I want?

[Nine] What do the boys at your school think of your looks?
Song: Unknown - Here With Me - The Classic Chillout Album
Comment: ........

[Ten] What do you really want in life?
Song: Katherine Jenkins - O Sole Mio - La Diva
Comment: A popular song which means "My Sun", which in this case would mean that I want my sun to shine for all to see.

[Eleven] How are you going to get far in life?
Song: Marcos Valle and Patricia Alvi - NAO E Facil (It's Not Easy) - Bossa Disney Nova
Comment: A translation from Pete's Dragon's It's Not Easy, the song is about finding a friend and loving him for all that he is, despite all his differences and imperfections.

[Twelve] What do say when you're in a bad mood?
Song: Chopin - Fantaisie-impromptu, Op. 66
Comment: A relatively complicated song and one of Chopin's most well known pieces that shifts from fast to slow and resumes speed in the later part. A song that evokes interest, mystery and sympathy from my person at the different stages of its progression, I believe this song can represent me in my angry moments (that includes what I say) as ever-shifting. Those who know me well can understand this.

[Thirteen] What about when you are really happy?
Song: Amarcord - Amarcord
Comment: To be honest, I don't know how this song got into my playlist. There are no lyrics and it would be healthy to assume that this is a song from a movie soundtrack. The general feel of the song, for me, sounds like a sly, flighty song with a twist of old fashioned style. I guess that's how I keep myself happy - good clean fun.

[Fourteen] What do think of yourself in general?
Song: Jordan Trotter - I Want You
Comment: "I want you, I need you, I did everything, but still you walked away.."
I want a lot of things in my life, which I don't always get, but I'm glad I still have my loving boyfriend and that should be enough to say I'm pretty pleased with what I have.

[Fifteen] What is your life's theme song?
Song: King Posse - Retounen - Putumayo Presents: Carnival
Comment: Another I-don't-know-what-this-song-means, but it's a fast-paced, happy-go-lucky song, enough to make me believe that I don't have to know where my life's leading, I just make the most of what I have at the present and have fun.

[Sixteen] What are you going to do this weekend?
Song: Mike Oldfield - On My Heart - The Number One Classical Album 2008
Comment: I'll do whatever is "on my heart" haha

[Seventeen] How can you try and make yourself happy?
Song: Bobby Goldsboro - Honey
Comment: My honey always cheers me up and makes me happy. Though this song didn't have quite a beautiful ending to it.

[Eighteen] What song will they play at your wedding?
Song: Placebo - Infra red
Comment: A little morbid.. but.. this seems appropriate.. "I’m coming up on infra-red, there is no running that can hide you cause I can see in the dark"

[Nineteen] What about your funeral?
Song: David Archuleta - Love Me Tender
Comment: Makes a lovely funeral song, don't you think?

[Twenty] What or who makes you the most happy?
Song: Within Temptations - Angels
Comment: That feeling that someone cares for you eventhough you don't see them?

[Twenty One] What am I even doing on this Earth?
Song: Lupe Fiasco - Daydreamin'
Comment: That's a poetic way of putting it.

[Twenty Two] How am I going to die?
Song: Rex Harrison and Robert Coote - Why Can't the English - My Fair Lady Soundtrack
Comment: I'd die because I can't speak perfect English.. haha

[Twenty Three] What is some good advice?
Song: Katelyn Tarver - Undeniable
Comment: Good advice would and should always be undeniable.

[Twenty Four] What's some advice you'd never take?
Song: 1900 Rimsky Korsakov - Dance of the Bumble Bee
Comment: Surely, that song is a murder to play.

[Twenty Five] Will you ever have children?
Song: Roy Paci - Ciuri Ciuri - Putumayo Presents: World Party
Comment: A complete I don't know!

[Twenty Six] What is high school like for you or what will it be like?
Song: Drifters - Up On The Roof
Comment: I steal away and go emo. Yes, I do that at times.

[Twenty Seven] How are you feeling today?
Song: Billie Holiday - Summertime
Comment: Lazy...

[Twenty Eight] What's your general outlook on life?
Song: Aladdin - A Whole New World - Disney's Greatest Musicals
Comment: Life is a great big arena that is yet to be conquered.

[Twenty Nine] What are your last words going to be?
Song: Julianne - Tulak ng Bibig
Comment: Well, this song seems convenient.

[Thirty] What song is going to be stuck in your head all day?
