Cigarettes and Chocolate Milk

Ok, I'm totally jumping on the bandwagon and posting my version of the Meme that's been going around.


Here are the rules:

1. Put your iTunes/ music player on Shuffle
2. For each question, press the next button to get your answer.
3. YOU MUST WRITE THAT SONG NAME DOWN NO MATTER WHAT

After you’ve answered all of the questions, tag 5 other people and then let them know they’ve been tagged to do the meme themselves!

OK, let's see how well my iTunes library knows me!

1. If someone says ‘Is this OK?’ you say

"Going through the motions" by Aimee Mann

"Something isn't right, I don't know how I know..." Good one, iTunes!


2. What would best describe your personality?

"You're not the only one I know" by the Sundays

"So I say I'm in love with the world
and what is so wrong with voicing a doubt when I'm on my own
it's perfectly fine to sleep in a chair
from Monday 'til Saturday
and what is so wrong with talking out loud when I'm all alone."


3. What do you like in a guy?

"You've got to hide your love away" by Eddie Vedder.
Yep, I like 'em tortured and distant.

6. What is your motto?

We dont like to make our passions other peoples concern,
And we walk in the world of safe people, and at night we walk into our houses and burn."

7. What do your friends think of you?

"Sparks" by Coldplay
"But I promise you this,
I’ll always look out for you,
That’s what I’ll do. "

"Edge of the World" by Josh Ritter

A twangy instrumental...again, my dear iTunes, you're doing pretty well!

Colorful, epic. Relatively short. Yup, that works!

As you sail between the rooftops and the sky"

13. What is your life story?

"Love Keep Us Together" by Martin Sexton
"It's been a long night tomorrow's another day
Call me when you find out the answer
And I'll hope and I'll pray
To a power that will keep me from goin' insane in the meantime"

And now you're left to face the gloom"

And make out like I don't understand them
You know what they say
They say, daddy you're a fool to cry"

22. What should you post this as?

"Cigarettes and Chocolate Milk" by Rufus Wainwright

"everything it seems i like's a little bit stronger, a little bit thicker, a little bit harmful for me"


Amen, Brother Rufus!

So, there are some old favorites and some newer tunes on this list, and more than 2 that i hardly listen to anymore.... i may have to redo this one with my favorites, although my iPod seems to know me pretty darn well!

Anyone care to join in?
