So, Alison did this iPod meme and then lacroix; so, hell, I’m a great big follower. Let’s whack the iPod on shuffle and answer questions, much like a magic 8 ball; and in the process, expose the shocking array of music I have on this thing!

How does the world see you?
Englishman in New York (Sting)
Really? You LIE, iPod! I feel disillusioned already.

Will I have a happy life?
Gleaming Auction (Snow Patrol)
(Sample lyrics: Broken glass aside; My feelings stay the same; Covered head to toe; In blood and fear and spite)
Hurtful, iPod. Just hurtful. I only scratched you ONCE (well, once BADLY).

What do my friends really think of me?
The Things We Do For Love (10CC)
Actually, I’ll accept this one, iPod. For a couple of friends only, but. Also, DO NOT JUDGE ME, INTERNET. I downloaded most of the songs from this list, God help me.

Do people secretly lust after me?
Mere Pass (Basement Jaxx)
Heh. I’ll take it.

How can I make myself happy?
Don’t Speak (No Doubt)
HAHAHAHAH! This is the funniest meme I’ve ever done. Well, apart from the whole blood and fear thing up there.

What should I do with my life?
Song for Guy (Elton John)
But I CAN’T SING, iPod. You of all people (people?) know this all too well.

Will I ever have children?
Derelict (Beck)
I … will they be homeless children? Will I sell them for drugs?

What is some good advice for me?
Gotta Know Remix (Supergroove)
Yes, I DO gotta know. Tell me. TELL ME!

How will I be remembered?
Canary in a Coalmine (The Police)
(Sample lyrics: First to fall over when the atmosphere is less than perfect; Your sensibilities are shaken by the slightest defect)
I LOVE THIS SONG. This means university to me. However I don’t think this is how I will be remembered. Unless I will be remembered as I was in university? (Now I am just doing that thing where you try to make your horoscope fit your day.)

What is my signature song?
El Manana (Gorillaz)
(Sample lyrics: Maybe in time; You’ll want to be mine)
Um … no. Well, maybe at the moment, but only in the most tenuous way. (Horoscope effect again.)

What do I think my current theme song is?
Rock DJ (Robbie Williams)
I need some underwear featuring a tiger, STAT. And some roller skates.

What does everyone else think my current theme song is?
Overture / And All That Jazz (Chicago soundtrack)
Everyone sees me as a murdering flapper? …OK then.

What song will play at my funeral?
Devil’s Party (INXS)
HAHAHAHAHAH! Oooh. Maybe God saw my chicken funeral.

What type of men/women do I like?
Intergalactic (Beastie Boys)
This song contains my favourite Beastie Boys line ever: “I’ll stir fry you in my wok”. If you like this line, then you are the type of men/women I like.

What is my day going to be like?
Sexy (Black Eyed Peas)
Yowza! I’d better get a move on with those tiger undies, then.
