The mp3 Meme

I saw this meme on Richmond’s blog ages ago. The idea is: Read a question, hit “shuffle” on your MP3 player, and write down the title of the song that comes up.
For the longest time I begged the husband to buy me an MP3 player just so I could fill out this meme.
Before we made that purchase though, we discovered Pandora. I created a couple “stations” there, and in place of hitting a shuffle button, I changed stations and skipped to the next random song.
(I will admit that I cheated a little. When a song came up that I didn’t know, I skipped it and wrote down the next song. I figured that if I had an MP3 player, I wouldn’t have downloaded songs I didn’t know, right?)

I was amused by some of the results…

I love that old joke:
When I die I want to go quietly in my sleep like my grandpa did -- not screaming and yelling like all the people who were riding in the car with him.
