A Song Meme...I'm Bored

I felt like doing something fun after that last depressing post, so this is just to amuse myself, and possibly you, as well. Do it if you want; ignore it if you want. I'm not much into tagging. You know the drill - set your music player to shuffle and answer the questions. I usually add song quotations that I think fit the category - just for fun. And to pass the time. Here goes!

Will I get far in life?
Peaceful Easy Feeling - The Eagles

"I want to sleep with you in the desert tonight." Sweet! I'll at least make it to the desert.

How do my friends see me?
Pink - Aerosmith

"Pink as the bing on your cherry." Well, I do wear a lot of cherry things.

Where will I get married?
I Love This Bar - Toby Keith

"If you get too drunk just sleep out in your car." Yep, I did that at Michelle and Jason's wedding. The booze will be aplenty at my wedding.

What is my best friend’s theme song?
Brothers in Arms - Dire Straits

"I've witnessed your suffering / As the battles raged higher / And though they did hurt me so bad / In the fear and alarm/ You did not desert me / My brothers in arms" This one fits Leslie best. It's a great song, used in my favorite episode of the West Wing.

What is the story of my life?
Almost Lover - A Fine Frenzy

"I never want to see you unhappy / I thought you'd want the same for me / Goodbye, my almost lover / Goodbye my hopeless dream / I'm trying not to think about you / Can't you just let me be?" This is perfect. This is my life. To rip off Scrubs, if my heart could write songs, they'd sound like this.

What was high school like?
American Soldier - Toby Keith

"I'm real good under pressure, being all that I can be / I can't call in sick on Mondays when they weekend's been too strong" - Kind of a stretch, but I love this song. Actually, "I will always do what's right" fits as well.

How can I get ahead in life?
One Headlight - The Wallflowers

"There's got to be something better than in the middle" - I fell in love with this song at Governor's School. We used to listen to Bringing Down the Horse while doing laundry and shooting pool.

What is the best thing about me?
Drift Away - Dobie Gray

"And when my mind is free / You know a melody can move me" - That's right, friends. Give me the beat, boys, and free my soul.

How is today going to be?
Every Rose Has Its Thorn - Poison

"Though it's been a while now / I can still feel so much pain" I hope that's why this song came up. Today is my mom's wedding. Maybe it's an homage to divorce.

What is in store for this weekend?
Standing Still - Jewel

"Am I standing still?" Maybe I'm going to do physical therapy.

What song describes my parents?
Stranger on the Shore - Acker Bilk

No lyrics, just beautiful oboe sounds. That's fitting - both of my parents were music majors.

My grandparents?
Miami - Counting Crows

"It just gets hard to believe / That God sent this angel to watch over me" Aww. My grandparents have been married 51 years.

How is my life going?
Glasgow Love Theme - Craig Armstrong

Another instrumental. For Love Actually fans, it's the song that plays when Juliet watches the wedding video. I think it's suitable to my life. The song has such a longing to it. I adore it, and it will play at my wedding, as soon as I find someone crazy enough to marry me. Any takers? I'm getting desperate here.

What song will they play at my funeral?
Tears in Heaven - Eric Clapton

"Would you know my name / If I saw you in heaven?" Yay! They better play this song at my funeral, or I'm going to have to come back and haunt some people.

How does the world see me?
Love Story - Taylor Swift

"Romeo take me somewhere we can be alone / I'll be waiting, all there's left to do is run / You'll be the prince and I'll be the princess" I guess the world knows of my aspirations at marrying Prince William.

Will I have a happy life?
Help Somebody - Van Zant

"Don't get too high on the bottle / And get right with the man / Fight your fights, find your grace / And all the things that you can't change / And help somebody if you can" I adore this song. I believe it's important to give to others. "If you want to hear God laugh tell Him your plans" works as well.

What do my friends really think of me?
Laid - James

"But she only comes when she's on top" In my defense, this song didn't give me a lot to work with. It's a good song, though, and the James version is way better than the remake.

Do people secretly lust after me?
Why Don't You and I - Santana and Chad Kroeger

"Everytime I try to talk to you / I get tongue-tied / Turns out everything I say to you / Comes out wrong and never comes out right / So I'll say why don't you and I get together / And take on the world and be together forever" I forgot about this song! How fitting.

How can I make myself happy?
Cliffs of Dover - Eric Johnson

Yet another instrumental. I love this song, and while I know very little about guitar, I know that Eric Johnson is one of the top guitarists in the world. This song does make me happy when I listen to it, or when I play it on Guitar Hero III Legends of Rock. I should make this my ring tone.

What should I do with my life?
I Hear the Bells - Mike Doughty

"Let's go make out up in the balcony" Why not? I've got time. Of course, getting to the balcony is the hard part.

Will I ever have children?
Angel from Montgomery - Bonnie Raitt and John Prine

"I am an old woman named after my mother" I guess that's a yes? This is my favorite version of this song.

What is some good advice?
Rest Stop - Matchbox 20

"So I thought, hell, if it's over / I had better end it quick or I could lose my nerve" Sure, why not. Break-up advice is good advice.

What is my signature dancing song?
Fake Plastic Trees - Radiohead

"It wears me out / It wears me out" This isn't a good dancing song, but it is a damn good song.

What do I think my current theme song is?
Talk Dirty to Me - Poison

"Baby, we'll be / At the drive-in / In the old man's ford / Behind the bushes / Until I'm screamin' for more / Down the basement / Lock the cellar door / And baby / Talk dirty to me" I love this song. I'd say "Hard Candy" by Counting Crows is my theme song, but this has potential.

What does everyone else think my current theme song is?
White Horse - Taylor Swift

"I'm not a princess / This ain't a fairy tale / I'm not the one you'll sweep off her feet / Lead her up the stairwell / This ain't a Hollywood / This is a small town / I was a dreamer before you went and let me down / Now it's too late for you and your white horse / To come around" Apparently, everyone thinks I'm a lovesick princess wannabe. All kidding aside, though, this song is fitting as well. Freaky how these things work.

What type of men/women do you like?
Wild Horses - The Sundays

"You know I can't let you / Slide through my hands" Yes, I like the Rolling Stones version as well, but this is the one that popped up on shuffle. This song will also be at my wedding. Dear Lord, the princess songs do fit me. I'll be coming back to reality any day now...

What did you think of this meme?
Little Black Backpack - Stroke 9

"And this shouldn't concern you, except that / Just don't expect to get your bloody black backpack back" Another song I forgot about.
