    Head over Heels, Pale Shelter, Mad World, Mothers Talk... to name a few.

  • A midsummer night's survey

    24 jul 2007, 03:47

    The next time you stand up in front of a group of people, you'll say:
    Shock to the System
    You know, it is about time I start another riot.

    Your favorite thing to say when drunk is:
    Who Do You Want To Be
    I can see this happening...

    Your message to the world:
    Public Service Announcement
    Not sure how to comment on this one.

    Your deepest secret:
    Emotion
    That I do have some emotion deep down? Who knew.

    Your innermost desire:
    Precious
    You could call it precious, I suppose.

    Somewhere in your wedding vows, you'll include:
    Mama
    Oh, hell no.

    On your deathbed, you'll whisper:
    Chevy Van
    I drive a Ford, and it's not a van, so this is unlikely.

    Your friends say behind your back:
    Love Me Do
    Aw, really?

    You say behind your friends' back:
    Desire (Come And Get It)
    True that.

    When you wake up in the morning, you mutter:
    Election Day
    Wishful thinking, but, sure. Actually, I've yet to register to vote.

    If you found yourself lost on a desert island, you'd yell:
    The New Stone Age
    This one is fitting, in an odd sort of way...

    Right now, your feelings are:
    Fame
    Eh.

    What's your excuse for reposting this:
    Kiss Off
    Not really.

    Your life's soundtrack:
    Jealous Guy
    I am not currently jealous, and I know I'm not a guy, so this is just wrong.

    The day you fall in love will be the day that:
    Hungry Like the Wolf
    Hungry for lovin'!

    You scream during sex:
    Drowning Man
    Oh my.

    What do people assume when they first look at you?
    love will tear us apart
    If I had a nickel for every time I've hear this...

    What will be a big challenge in life for you?
    Still Breathing
    Ooh, that's not good.

    Are you a good boyfriend/girlfriend?
    I Want to Break Free
    Ha ha. So, no. Or maybe it's not my fault.

    Do you have a secret admirer?
    Something To Do
    So, this person just admires me because he needs something to do? That souns about right.

    Will you ever become manically depressed in your life?
    The Art Of Parties
    Erm...?

    How will you die?
    Special
    So I don't have to wonder anymore.

    Is someone trying to kill you?
    Poor Boy
    I'll stay away from him, then.

    What's for dinner tonight?
    Change Your Mind
    I did a few times, actually. Soup or sandwich, soup or sandwich... or maybe both.

    Your farewell message to the readers of this:
    It Doesn't Matter
    It sure doesn't.
