I don't normally participate in these sorts of things, but this "answer these questions" activity combined Music and Randomness. How could I not?

Gashwin's blog pointed me to Zadok's iteration of the questionnaire. The instructions are:

Go to your music player of choice and put it on shuffle. Say the following questions aloud, and press play. Use the song title as the answer to the question. NO CHEATING.

Herewith, my answers:

How does the world see you? Wouldn’t You Think I’d Know By Now? (J. Henry Burnett)

Will I have a happy life? Forgive & Forget (Bob Bennett)
This seems like sound advice.

What do my friends really think of me? You’re the One (Sweet Comfort Band)
As if.

What do people secretly think of me? U.F.O. (Larry Norman)
This seems more on target.

How can I be happy? Hero (Steve Taylor)

What should I do with my life? Good News (2nd Chapter of Acts)

Will I ever have children? Lord of the Starfields (Bruce Cockburn)
Wasn't something like this once said to Abram? Does this mean I can expect our first child when I'm 80?

What is some good advice for me? True Confessions (Tonio K)
Oddly enough, there's a Lenten Reconciliation Service at St. Tommy tomorrow evening.

How will I be remembered? Big Race (All Saved Freak Band)
At least it's not "Big Racist, which, given my upbringing, wouldn't be too surprising.

What is my signature dancing song? The Golden Age (Mark Heard)
Since I can't really dance (no rhythm at all), a non-dance tune seems appropriate.

What do I think my current theme song is? The World (Fireworks)

What does everyone else think my current theme song is? Wondering Where the Lions Are (Bruce Cockburn)
...especially my students, who would like to feed me to them ASAP.

What song will play at my funeral? Dancing Barefoot (U2)
This would be cool.

What type of men/women do you like? House of Mirrors (T-Bone Burnett)
Don't we all want people who just reflect us back to ourselves?

What is my day going to be like? Rock of Ages (Gillian Welch & David Rawlings)
"When my body gives out / Gonna read those final pages."

knows not single soul in this town who would have this oddball collection of music, but in desperate need to share a few beverages with anyone who does
