"What my music says about me."

Here are the rules:

1. Put your iPod (or any MP3 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 HOW SILLY IT SOUNDS
4. Tag at least 10 friends who might enjoy doing the game as well as the person you got the note from.

Except I'm going to cheat, as I usually do when I deal with these kinds of memes:
  • I'm not going to tag anyone else. If you see this note and feel like responding, go ahead!
  • If I were to follow the instructions exactly, most of the answers would be something like, "Track 03" or "Chapter 3A". That's because, by number of tracks, most of the contents of my iPod are audiobooks. Therefore, I'm going to use a "smart playlist" on iTunes instead. It's restricted to musical works between 60 seconds and 12 minutes long. I'll keep the random element, though.
  • Since I don't listen to much current pop music, some of the titles (though humorous) don't give a clear idea to the piece of music or where it's from. I've included these additional comment [in square brackets].
  • Bear in mind that I have over 6000 songs on my iPod classic, and I don't fiddle with the random-number generator. The large number of selections from movie soundtracks and the Battlestar Galactica TV series is just a co-incidence. Probably.
