The oracle says...

A slightly different variety of music meme questionnaire, via Calephetos:

Put your iTunes/Winamp/WMP (in my case, Creative Zen) on shuffle and use the song title as the answer to the question.

Considering my taste in music, this could be good, or could go terribly wrong....

1. How does the world see you?Inner Silence (Anathema 'Alternative 4')
Maybe I look placid....

2. Will I have a happy life?Velvet Green (Jethro Tull 'Songs From The Wood')
"Never a care: with your legs in the air, loving." Ha!

3. What do my friends think of me?The Outsider (A Perfect Circle, 'Thirteenth Step')
I suppose I can't deny the title, but the lyrics (attention-seeking via suicide) don't fit.

4. Do people secretly lust after me?Strip The Soul (Porcupine Tree, 'In Absentia')
I'm not sure how to take that.

5. How can I make myself happy?Easy There, Steady Now (Richard Thompson, 'Mirror Blue')
Good advice, RT.

6. What should I do with my life?Reformat Spiders (Bass Communion, 'BC III')

7. Will I ever have children?Wind Up (Jethro Tull, 'Aqualung')
I couldn't have put it better. I didn't choose any of these answers, honest.

8. What is some good advice for me?Get Back In The Car (Chroma Key, 'You Go Now')

9. How will I be remembered?Beware of Darkness (Spock's Beard, 'Beware Of Darkness')
Oh, thanks!

10. What's my signature dancing song?Avalon (Sigur Rós, 'Ágaetis Byrjun')
It's a drone 'n' bass dirge. Nice strings, but I can't imagine moving to it at all.

11. What's my current themesong?The Last Will And Testament Of Emma Peel (I.E.M., 'IEM')
Yep; suitably bleak, but not ostentatiously depressive.

12. What do others think is my current themesong?The Company (Fish, 'Vigil In A Wilderness Of Mirrors')
Now that's accurate.

13. What shall they play at my funeral?Please Come Back (John Wesley, 'Shiver')
Not an option, I'm afraid. Hopefully.

14. What type of women do I like?Hourglass (Liquid Tension Experiment, 'Liquid Tension Experiment 2')
What can I say? Actually, it's not true.

15. How's my love life?The Moon Touches Your Shoulder (Porcupine Tree, 'Coma Divine')
"Springtime is over...", eh? "Sway in the cloud blur/And light up the sky" is a bit more optimistic.
