Swingin' Party

Liviana from In Bed With Books tagged me for this meme because she thought I'd have interesting music to share. I decided to go for it because it looked like an amusing game to play on the weekend.

1. Put your iTunes, Windows Media Player, Minamp, etc on shuffle.
2. For each question, press the next button to get your answer.
4. Put the artist after a dash following the song name.
5. Put any comments in brackets. (I did italics)
6. Tag some lucky people to spread the disease.

How would you describe yourself?
Cheated Hearts- Yeah Yeah Yeahs

"I think I'm bigger than the sound" Hmm, not so much, really I feel one with the sound and I don't feel cheated, but maybe in the past...

How do you feel today?
Failures- Joy Division

Umm I've failed at getting down to business and writing?

What is your life's purpose?
Punks in Vegas- The Bouncing Souls

Hell yeah!

What is your motto?
Mystery- The Wipers

Okay, I guess my motto is a mystery to me.

What do you think about very often?
Hoboken- Operation Ivy

Actually I've never thought about Hoboken until now. That's in New Jersey right? I was in New Jersey once, but I don't think I was in Hoboken.

What is your life story?
Summer Turns to High- R.E.M.

Uh, it had to be REM, didn't it. I suck at interpreting Michael Stipe's meanings, but I guess "Someone put a pox on me, I spit in their eyes" works, I am a survivor like that.

What do you want to be when you grow up?
Conversations with my 13 year-old self- Pink

Totally appropriate! That's gotta mean YA writer, right?

What will you dance to at your wedding?
Screaming Skull- Sonic Youth

I love it. I might just have to do it.

What will they play at your funeral?
In the Meantime- Helmet

Umm. Hmm. Well moshing at my funeral would be cool.

What is your hobby/interest?
Mono (the radio friendly mix) by Courtney Love

Okay not like the disease, the first line is about vinyl in mono. Vinyl is definitely a hobby/interest for me.

If you could do anything right now, what would it be?
Exaggerating GF/Bachelor- Dane Cook

I'm just going to take that is if I could anything right now, I'd want to laugh at funny shit. Which is pretty much true all the time. that's one reason why i have cats.

What do you want most of all?
Why Can't You See- Billy Childish and Kyra

Umm, at first I was like what is this song??? It's from a comp. I'm listening to it now and the lyrics are like, can't you see from the look in my eyes that I'm the girl who's gonna die. Hmmm.
Ok now "I wanna take your heart and open it wide", I guess...

What is your greatest fear?
Save My Life- Pink

"She's back on drugs again even though she knows it ain't right..." Yeah I guess going down bad paths are a big fear. And losing the man of your dreams and your success because you fuck up. That would suck. But I would have said spiders. Or maybe it's my fear to have my guilty pleasures exposed and now Pink has come up twice, but really I don't care. I love Pink.

What is your darkest secret?
Atomic Garden- Bad Religion

Yeah I'm building a bomb.... No, I'm not I swear.

What is your favorite thing in the world?
Rock and Roll- The Velvet Underground

Now that one is perfect!

If you could have one wish, what would you wish for?
Intermission 247- Heavens to Betsy

I guess I could use a break with a great bass line...

What is your theme song?
The Disco Before the Breakdown- Against Me!

Umm, it's a good song, but not a theme song...

The next time you hear this song (aside from now, that is), you must dance.
Step- Low

Okay. Well listening to Low makes me think of Tai and Tai makes me happy so sure, I'll dance.

What will you post this as?
Swingin' Party- The Replacements

Oh blog readers, I'm sorry you were so deceived.

Well, I'm not going to do any tagging. Just do this if you are bored and think it sounds fun like I did. But leave a comment if you do it so I can check out your music. And feel free to comment on my music :)

Thanks for posting this, I found it really amusing especially your comments about the songs. I'd do this myself except I don't have any music on my computer and my iPod still has your old music on it...yeah, I'm really lazy.

Anyway, this really made me laugh, so thanks.
