The obligatory shuffle song survey


22 oct. 2010, 19h25m

Put your playlist/iPod/listening device of choice on shuffle. Work off the following questions one by one - the title of the first song that comes up is the answer to the first question, and so on.

Will I get far in life?
Song: Mother of Light (A New Age Dawns Part 2)
Artist: Epica
Comment: Uhm. That means yes, right? I never thought I was going to start my own cult.

How do my friends see me?
Song: Desire in the Grace of the Night
Artist: Orkrist
Comment: On the good side, it sounds quite... eloquent. On the bad side, I don't get it. Apparently they think I'm a nightowl with lots of unfulfilled wishes. Care to explain? ;)

Where will I get married?
Song: Je chante par couverture
Artist: Helium Vola
Comment: In the rain, it seems. I don't remember any rain on my wedding day, but come to think of it, it was only our civil wedding. So if we're going to have a late ceremony, I'll better provide umbrellas for everyone, eh?

What is my best friend's theme song?
Song: I Hate Blue Robots
Artist: 8 Bit Instrumental
Comment: You do, Vania90? Is that some kind of metaphor, like... you know, toothbrushes?

What is the story of my life?
Song: Two Hearts Not Captured
Artist: Nobuo Uematsu
Comment: Wow, that's amazing. And so fitting, in a way I just can't explain...

What was high school like?
Song: Io Pan
Artist: Inkubus Sukkubus
Comment: During school, I was very much into ancient cultures and mythology (I still am, even more). So this one fits.

How can I get ahead in life?
Song: The Bitch Is Back
Artist: Sinergy
Comment: By... being a bitch. Thanks, but in this case I prefer to not get ahead. (Although this is strangely fitting, considering modern society [/rant])

What is the best thing about me?
Song: Ambush Attack
Artist: Nobuo Uematsu
Comment: I won't look into your face before attacking you – that's a good thing! Unfortunately not for you, though.

How is tomorrow going to be?
Song: Chevalier de la Table Ronde
Artist: Die Streuner
Comment: Male, armed, drunk and lusting after women! (Well, my „second head“ will be back for pen&paper roleplaying *waves*, and considering our main characters... yes, it definitely fits.)

What is in store for this weekend?
Song: 2011
Artist: Neljä Ruusua
Comment: Time travel? o.O

What song describes my parents?
Song: Angbands Schmieden
Artist: Summoning
Comment: Angband, a place from Lord of the Rings. My late father was a hugeTolkien fan, so this seems fitting. (Although I'm sure none of my parents is or was into blacksmithing.)

My grandparents?
Song: Adagio in F Minor
Artist: Angels Of Venice
Comment: I have... no idea. A bit slow and rather quiet? Don't think so.

How is my life going?
Song: Fullmoon Dream
Artist: Mirzadeh
Comment: Oh dear. I always have nightmares when full moon's on the sky, so this can't be good o.O

What song will they play at my funeral?
Song: Des Kriegers Traum
Artist: XIV Dark Centuries
Comment: „Wieder geh ich durch das Licht
In meinem Herzen wächst die Zuversicht
Wieder geh ich durch die Nacht
Der Hass in meinem Herzen, er verliert an Macht
Wieder geh ich durch das Eis
Die Schreie aus vergang`nen Zeiten werden immer leiser
Ich spür das Feuer, es flammte in mir auf
Werd ewig daran denken, berühre meines Schwertes Knauf“

How does the world see me?
Song: Heaven's Coffin
Artist: Agathodaimon
Comment: Thanks? :-P

Will I have a happy life?
Song: Conclusion
Artist: Apocalyptica
Comment: No predictions today – I'll have to live it to see what it has in store for me. It's better this way. (and somehow this song makes me cry and smile at the same time...)

What do my friends really think of me?
Song: Clevermind
Artist: Poets of the Fall
Comment: It might be an ironical insult, but I'll give them the benefit of doubt and take it as a compliment ;-)

How can I make myself happy?
Song: Sing, My Heart
Artist: Bereg
Comment: Yay! Singing is great... as long as nobody listens, then I'll get too self-sonscious

Do people secretly lust after me?
Song: The Hunger
Artist: Dead Poets Society
Comment: Seems so *panics and runs*

What should I do with my life?
Song: Await the Highwind
Artist: Motionless Battle
Comment: I will!

Will I ever have children?
Song: Another sky
Artist: Fiddler's Green
Comment: ...whatever

What is some good advice?
Song: I'm Not An Actor, I Just Play One On TV
Artist: Chaos Con Queso
Comments: ...which translates to „be random“?

What is my signature dancing song?
Song: Craving For Another Killing
Artist: Hypocrisy
Comment: Yeah, my dancing style kills people... *headbangs*

What do I think my current theme song is?
Song: Song of the Nightbird
Artist: Catamenia
Comment: I am a „nightbird“ at the moment, so... yeah.

What does everyone else think my current theme song is?
Song: Memories in Time
Artist: Adore
Comment: Okay, „everyone else“, what do you mean by this? I don't seem to get it *scratches head*

What do I really want from life?
Song: Natural Chaos
Artist: Forefather
Comment: Chaos! Destruction! Mayhem! And a cup of coffee!

What should I do to help others?
Song: You're Not Alone!
Artist: Nobuo Uematsu
Comment: This is amazing. Not only does the title fit (= show people that they're not alone), but the song is played in the ultimate „No matter what you're going through, your friends will be there“ scene in Final Fantasy IX. I think I even wrote lyrics to it some years ago. One of my absolute FFIX favourites!

What should I do to help myself?
Song: Nocturnal Beauty of Dying Land
Artist: Behind The Scenery
Comment: Kill the land? o.O I better let it survive and wait until others help me. *ultimate excuse for laziness, hrhr*

What should I do to succeed in life?
Song: Dreaming Into Reality
Artist: Graveworm
Comment: Dream so intensely that I can make my dreams come real – now that's a nice premise

What is my one most important goal in life?
Song: On This Cold Ground
Artist: Astrayed
Comment: Getting off of this cold ground, apparently – I don't like having cold feet

What do I get the most pleasure from?
Song: In Thy Never Ending Way
Artist: Orphaned Land
Comment: Neverending ways? Ouch, my poor feet. First the cold ground and now this!
„Waves that flow in the oceans of the stars
Clusters bright and far
Brave souls art thou, who tread the darkness in
Thy never ending way
Say thy names with pride
Candles in darkest night
Bringers of hope ignite
Ye of clearest sight
Go in peace, and find thy faith
Evolve thy self, and lose all hate
So a heaven you may create“
