I’m usually not a big fan of these sorts of things, but eh, haven’t had time to write up any actual posts, so via Dennis we get a silly high school style musical meme test that reveals a bit of what’s in my music collection… Here’s how it works:
1. Put Your iTunes on Shuffle. (I used Party Shuffle, cuz Shuffle isn’t really “random”)
2. For each question, press the ‘next’ button to get your answer. (or listen to each song, like I did.)
3. You must write down the name of the song no matter how silly it sounds!
4. Put any comments in brackets after the song name.
What do your friends think of you?

I’m really not sure what that means
If someone says, “Is this okay?” You say?
Slow It Down, by Checkmate
Apparently it’s not okay
How would you describe yourself?
Jackie’s Mood by Jackie Mittoo
Hmm. That doesn’t make much sense, but if my life is going to be described by a Jackie Mittoo song… that’s actually not so bad. And this one is a great one…
What do you like in a guy/girl?
The End, by the Skandalous All-Stars
Yikes. Seems a bit harsh.

Great song… but… eh?

I knew this was a high school thing… I thought I was grown up. But… apparently I want to be George H. W. Bush
What do you think of when you see the person you like?
Mama Julie by Terry & Jerry
That seems massively inappropriate
What will you dance to at your wedding?
My Love, by Ike Turner
Of course, I am married, and I danced to “Love Isn’t Love, by the Aggrolites.” But, at least this is a love song… but, tragically, it’s by Ike Turner, who probably is not appropriate at a wedding give the whole Ike and Tina Turner stuff…
What will they play at your funeral?
The Big Five, by Bad Manners
Um. Wow. If you know anything about this song (it’s a cover of the Prince Buster tune by the same title, which is actually a… bastardization of Rainy Night In Georgia), this is about the most inappropriate funeral song ever. Actually, this is one of the most inappropriate and politically incorrect songs… ever. We used to get calls from the local Ithaca Skins at the radio show asking us to play this song on the radio all the time and it is *not* something you can play on the radio if you want to stay on the radio. Instead, we’d usually play a ska version of Rainy Night in Georgia, so maybe we can do a substitution? Though, not sure that really fits as a funeral song… but, maybe.
