This is something I've enjoyed doing for years since I first got it from this ten year old blog entry; basically, you take a list of questions, set your Ipod (or any Spotify/Apple playlist) on shuffle and answer each question with whatever song you get. The songs usually make no sense as answers, but it has always been a fun past time. I have a word document that I've been filling with these since 2012, but the last one I did was apparently in 2017 so here's one I did a couple of nights ago (using my best songs of 2018 playlist). Give it a try if you want.
Back To The Future:
I. What will I dream about tonight?
“Outlaws” – Au/Ra (ooh, sounds risky and dangerous and fun)
II. What song best describes my love life?
“The Medicine Does Not Control Me” – EURINGER featuring Grimes (I don’t like the sound of that.)
III. What is my life’s ambition?
“Loveless” – Lila Gold (Um, mission accomplished? I think.)
IV. Who is my greatest hero?
“Deliverance” – CHVRCHES (Deliverance does sound like a cool fantasy character name…)
V. What do I want right now?
“I Love My Boyfriend” – Princess Chelsea (Well, it almost works because we’ve already covered my love life, but…)
VI. What is my dream job?
“Side Effects” – The Chainsmokers; Emily Warren (My dream job is a side effect?)
VII. Where does my future best friend live?
“no tears left to cry” – Ariana Grande (Uh?)
VIII. What song fits me the best?
“Sweet but Psycho” – Ava Max (This made me laugh, but I’m still a little offended.)
IX. What is the real answer to life, the universe, and everything?
“Focus” – Allie X (Did you just finish watching “Priest”?)
X. What should I definitely not eat?
“High Horse” – Kacey Musgraves (No comment)
XI. How will I die?
“Third Eye” – Emma Blackery (This either has something to do with that Martian episode in the original “Twilight Zone” or Combustion Man from “Avatar” either way not good).
XII. What will people say at my funeral?
“CEASE AND DESIST” – Alice Glass (I like it).
XIII. How will my grandchildren feel about me?
“Girl of the Year” – Allie X (Kids these days).
XIV. Who loves me right now?
“Over My Head” – Echosmith (I had to resist the urge to look up).
XV. What is my true identity?
“Heartbroken” – Fickle Friends (Ok, I wasn’t sure before, but now I know this list is trying to hurt my feelings).
XVI. Who or what is my greatest foe?
“This Time Around” – Jaira Burns (In the context of the song, that almost makes sense).
XVII. Aliens just teleported me out of my computer chair in a swirl of blue sparkles what happens next!?
“Mulholland” – Sizzy Rocket (That teleported me to a highway? Alright then.)
XVIII. Any last words?
“Everybody Wants To Be Famous” – Superorganism (I’ll take it.)
