Somewhere. A. Clock. Is. Ticking.

I'm bored, so I think I'll do this tag. It looks interesting, and besides, I'm assuming it has a purpose. I like to be optimistic.

Rules:
1. Put your MP3 player on shuffle
2. For each question, press the next button to get your answer.
3. You must write the name of the song no matter what. No cheating!

IF SOMEONE SAYS “IS THIS OKAY?” YOU SAY?
What Difference Does It Make? - The Smiths (aha, I see why they say this is fun)

WHAT WOULD BEST DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONALITY?
Ramble On - Led Zeppelin (hah. How apt.)

WHAT DO YOU LIKE IN A GUY/GIRL?
The End - The Doors (ahhahahhahahahhahaaaaaaaaaaa. This is too funny.)

HOW DO YOU FEEL TODAY?
I am the Walrus - The Beatles (*sniggers*)

WHAT IS YOUR LIFE’S PURPOSE?
Super Mario Brothers – Phish (yeah!)

WHAT IS YOUR MOTTO?
Take Me Home Country Roads - John Denver (I haven't heard this since.. this brings back fest memories)

WHAT DO YOUR FRIENDS THINK OF YOU?
Unsolved Mysteries - Animal Collective (Yeah, right. I'm about as mysterious as a teacup.)

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF YOUR PARENTS?
Mea Culpa – Enigma… HAAAAAAAAAAAAAHAAAAAAAAAAAA. Isn't mea culpa “my fault” in latin?

WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT VERY OFTEN?
Suicide is Painless – Nick Drake (*stares at screen incredulously for a moment, then falls off chair*)

WHAT IS 2+2?
Spark – Nitin Sawhney (It could be, you know. How I love this song)

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF YOUR BEST FRIEND?
Some Kind Of Wonderful – Joss Stone (Aww, how true)

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE PERSON YOU LIKE?
By The Way - Red Hot Chili Peppers (eh?)

WHAT IS YOUR LIFE STORY?
Love, Reign O’er Me - The Who (Huh? What? HOW?)

WHAT DO YOU WANT TO BE WHEN YOU GROW UP?
TwentySomething – Jamie Cullum (That's it, my player is psychic.)

WHAT DO YOU THINK WHEN YOU SEE THE PERSON YOU LIKE?
Stay (wasting time) – Dave Matthews Band (I love how randomly intuitive this tag is.)

WHAT DO YOUR PARENTS THINK OF YOU?
Blitzkrieg Bop – The Ramones (hahahhahahah, again)

WHAT WILL YOU DANCE TO AT YOUR WEDDING?
Any Colour You Like – Pink Floyd *raises eyebrow*

WHAT WILL THEY PLAY AT YOUR FUNERAL?
Castles in the Air – Don McLean
(Wow, wow, wow. "For I cannot be part of the cocktail generation/ partners waltz, devoid of all romance/ the music plays, and everyone must dance/ I'm bowing out, I need a second chance. Perfect. One of the most PERFECT songs ever written.)

WHAT IS YOUR HOBBY/INTEREST?
Butterflies and Hurricanes - Muse (I shall have to turn philosophical now at the enormity of the force that is an average windows media player.)

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST SECRET?
Waiting on the World to Change – John Mayer (This tag never ceases to amaze me)

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF YOUR FRIENDS?
In Limbo - Radiohead (Haha. Haha. All hail Radiohead!)

WHAT SHOULD YOU POST THIS AS?
Somewhere a Clock is Ticking - Snow Patrol.

H'm. This tag did have a purpose, although I can't pinpoint the purpose now. I never can. I shall blush and eat my words one at a time, and very humbly at that. I just thinkIt would have been funnier if I'd had all my Hindi songs on my computer (ah Rafi, ah Mukesh), but then my computer would have mutinied on a regular basis if I had all my music on it. Not that it doesn't mutiny now. I'm still not sure whether computers are kindred, but if you are, I tag you.

15 kindred spirits have swallowed my rambling:

new age scheherazade said...

you cheated. or your computer did.
cheats, both of you. this is JUST not possible otherwise.
wait-let me do it too.

ad libber said...

your player is psychic!! ( you see, i believe in the good in all and hence do not suspect you of cheating)

tags are rather purposeless...but uncanny...

Space Oddity said...

Heh.
I LOVE your taste in music! Being surrounded by people who listen to hip-hop, this is comforting.

heh? ok said...

hmm. i think it'd be fun to try this thing with songs on the radio. then inane would have a new meaning.

Doubletake, Doublethink. said...

@ newage: i did NOT!! i got plenty of vague results, but halfway into the tag the hidden meanings just got to me. i mean, super amrio brothers? i've never even played that.

@ ad libber: i applaud your nobility. and this tag was very uncanny.

@ space oddity: i suppose i'd listen to hip-hop too, if it didn't baffle me so much. again, i'm assuming hip-hop has a purpose.

@ heh? ok: good idea. i'm switching on the radio now. let's see how himesh helps this tag.
jobless me.

Fishy! said...

Made me laugh for quite a while. :)

Doubletake, Doublethink. said...

now stop laughing and go do it yourself. i shall be lurking somewhere waiting to snigger at you. humph.

@ raghu: her name is darshana, and she is brilliant, yes. also a very irregular blogger. go comment on her blog instead of peppering mine with three comments at one go!

and joss stone has one hell of a voice.

Not Quite Anonymous said...

Windows Media Player turning Psychic? More like, Passive Observer with twisted mind. the weird yet apt songs mine came up is no joke. then again it may merely be a reflection of music I listen to. Still your little exercise inspi - ed me to try it out and the results as I have related...curiouser and curiouser. Thanks for the fun!

Doubletake, Doublethink. said...

@ "not quite": not quite, eh? i don't know who you are, which is very bad for a person as curious as i am (who is this? who is this? aaaargh) but if it did make you try out this tag, yay. glad the fun is spreading.
