MP3 Player - the New Magic 8 Ball

Make your MP3 Player the new Magic 8 Ball.
Put it on random, then ask it a question and see what happens. The answer lies in the song title that comes up.

Or, you can do the below Q&A that I picked up from some other site (although I don’t remember where).

So on the train this morning, I asked little Luka (he’s my iPod) these questions and the answers below are what he spit back at me. I am going to spend the weekend analyzing the responses. But this exercise strengthens my suspicion that Luka isn’t really the friend I believe him to be and is out to get me. Of the possible 4,922 responses, these are the best he could come back with?

PS – The below answers are the honest-to-God ones that popped up in all cases. They were not changed for dramatic or comedic effect, despite the fact that I think some of them couldn’t be funnier if I’d written it myself (see answers to #4, 7, 11)

1. What is my day going to be like?
“Hey Boy Hey Girl” – Chemical Brothers
2. How does the world see you?
“White Houses” by Vanessa Carlton
3. Will I have a happy life?
“Oceans Away” – the Fray
4. What do my friends really think of me?
“How Bizarre” - OMC (I am not lying on this one)
5. Do people secretly lust after me?
“When Tomorrow Comes” – the Eurythmics
6. How can I make myself happy?
“Lady (Hear Me Tonight)” - MoDJo (Um, yeah. Most of my friends know this one is waaaay off.)
7. What should I do with my life?
“Dancing Queen” - Abba (I knew there was something missing in my life.)
8. What am I afraid of?
“Saturday Morning" - the Eels
9. What is my biggest regret?
“Mama Told Me Not to Come” – Tom Jones & Stereophonics (I am just gonna stay away from that one.)
10. What is my biggest extravagance?
“Forever on My Mind” – the BoDeans
11. What is some good advice for me?
“Laid” – James (Once again, swear to God I am not lying on this. I have to say, this is probably the best advice I've received in months.)
12. How will I be remembered?
“84,000 Different Delusions” – Shawn Colvin
13. What should my theme song be?
“Total Eclipse of the Heart” – Bonnie Tyler (OK, I don’t even know how this song got onto my iPod in the first place)
14. What song will play at my funeral?
“Tether” – Indigo Girls (That one is lame)
15. If I could change one thing about my life, what would it be?
“Perfect” – Maren Ord (Yeah, now I know this whole thing is full of crap.)

Excellent post. I can't believe "Laid" came up in the iPod -- unless, of course, you have an extraordinarily large amount of sex-type songs loaded. :)

I didn't know you had a blog on blogspot...I only had Nacho from MSN.
