The Breakout

A little game has been going around on Facebook that I thought I'd try. You are supposed to put your iTunes (iPod) on shuffle and answer the following questions with the song titles that come up. When I did mine, I skipped over titles that made no obvious or even metaphorical sense. I think being too much of a purist ruins the fun.

I was pretty amazed at some of the answers:

How would you describe yourself?
Breaking Silence (Janis Ian)

What do you like in a guy/girl?
Living in the Past (Jethro Tull)

How do you feel today?
I who have nothing (Ben King)

What is your life’s purpose?
Nothing Man (Bruce Springsteen)

What's your motto?
Before My time (Johnny Cash)

What do your friends think of you?
Wayfaring Stranger (Johnny Cash)

What do you think of your parents?
You've Lost That Loving Feeling (Righteous Brothers)

What do you think about very often?
Comfortably numb (Pink Floyd)

What is 2 + 2?
One Less Set of Footsteps (Jim Croce)

What do you think of your best friend?
Knockin' on Heaven's Door (Bob Dylan)

What do you think of the person you like?
Certamente (Madreblu)

What is your life story?
Juliet's requiem (Nellee Hooper)

What do you want to be when you grow up?
Rain Dogs (Tom Waits)

What do you think of when you see the person you like?
I'm Gonna Crawl (Led Zeppelin)

What will you dance to at your wedding?
Civil War (Guns & Roses)

What will they play at your funeral?
A Bad Nght (Cat Stevens)

What is your hobby/interest?
Love me Tender (Elvis)

What is your biggest fear?
Philosopher's Stone (Van Morrison)

What is your biggest secret?
Gotta Serve Somebody (Bob Dylan)

What do you think of your friends?
Somewhere Over the Rainbow (Bruddah Iz)

What will you post this as?

How awesome that you have Jim Croce on your iPod. I thought I was the only one who still remembered him.

"One Less Set of Footsteps" is one of my favorite songs of his, but he has few weak ones, truth be told.



About Me

Northwest Ohio, United States
"I was no better than dust, yet you cannot replace me. . . Take the soft dust in your hand--does it stir: does it sing? Has it lips and a heart? Does it open its eyes to the sun? Does it run, does it dream, does it burn with a secret, or tremble In terror of death? Or ache with tremendous decisions?. . ." --Conrad Aiken

Fave Painting:  The Three Ages of Man and Death
by Albrecht Dürer

From the First Chapter

The Secret of Hurricanes : That article in the Waterville Scout said it was Shake- spearean, all that fatalism that guides the Kennedys' lives. The likelihood of untimely death. Recently, another one died in his prime, John-John in an airplane. Not long before that, Bobby's boy. While playing football at high speeds on snow skis. Those Kennedys take some crazy chances. I prefer my own easy ways. Which isn't to say my life hasn't been Shake-spearean. By the time I was sixteen, my life was like the darkened stage at the end of Hamlet or Macbeth. All littered with corpses and treachery.
