I Appreciate You (aka That Song Meme Thing)
I got tagged a while back by JD to do this song meme that goes through the blogosphere every few months or so in a new (but not terribly different) incarnation. The last time I did something similar I got some freakishly accurate/prophetic answers (my "break up song" is apparently "I Am Telling You I'm Not Going" from Dreamgirls, natch) so let's see what it cooks up this time, shall we?
Plus, I just got home from seeing The Golden Compass and I'm tres bored.
1. Put your 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 (this is in capital letters, so it is very serious.)
1. IF SOMEONE SAYS “IS THIS OKAY” YOU SAY? "Maps" by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs
I never just say "Maps!" to people unless their name is Maps, in which case I would be asking why the hell their name is Maps.
2. WHAT WOULD BEST DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONALITY? "The Future Holds a Lion's Heart" by Darren Hayes
Umm... no it's not.
3. WHAT DO YOU LIKE IN A GUY/GIRL? "Waiting for the Siren's Call" by New Order
Well, I think a man's voice can be incredibly sexy, so I'll take this one!
4. HOW DO YOU FEEL TODAY? "Bliss" by Tori Amos
I wouldn't go so far as to say today was "bliss", but it was fairly decent as days go. Ya know?
5. WHAT IS YOUR LIFE’S PURPOSE? "Groove Thang" by Zhane
Uh-huh. I live for a funky beat, it's true.
6. WHAT IS YOUR MOTTO? "Girls in Their Summer Clothes" by Bruce Springsteen
I don't think I've ever said this. Not once.
7. WHAT DO YOUR FRIENDS THINK OF YOU? "I'm Your Man" by Wham!
Hah. I sure am and don't you forget it!
8. WHAT DO YOU THINK OF YOUR PARENTS? "Bridging the Gap" by NaS
...sure they are.
9. WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT VERY OFTEN? "So Do I Say Sorry First?" by Stephanie McIntosh
Completely ignoring the fact that I do indeed have Steph Mc on my iPod I don't tend to think this very often. I mean, why should I be apologising (or considering it) when I AM ALWAYS RIGHT? Answer me that!
10. WHAT IS 2+2? "Bombs Up In My Face" by Darren Hayes
Well, no, it's 4, but nice try Darren.
11. WHAT DO YOU THINK OF YOUR BEST FRIEND? "The Pink Room" by Angelo Badalamenti
...she's a woman, if that's what this implies.

I don't see a connection between the question and the song title at all. Do you?! :p
13. WHAT IS YOUR LIFE STORY? "Stairway to Heaven" by Dolly Parton
Is my life story a better version of someone else's who is much more heralded and well-known? I'M SURE IT IS!

Well, I don't tell them that, but sure...
