My World Revolves Around iTunes

Got this meme from Caitlin, although I saw it on her cousin Justine’s blog first. So, who am I to now join?

1. What do you think of me, iTunes?
The Art Teacher – Rufus Wainwright
“There I was in uniform
Looking at the art teacher
I was just a girl then;
Never have I loved since then”
That’s odd. I mean, are you sure??? Because I never wore a uniform and I never was madly in love with an art teacher.

2. Will I have a happy life?
I’ll Be Seeing You – Billie Holiday
“Iâ??ll be seeing you
In every lovely, summerâ??s day
And everything thatâ??s bright and gay
Iâ??ll always think of you that way”
It’s kind of a sad, melancholic song. But it’s also full of hope, so I choose to take that as a yes.

3. What do my friends really think of me?
Shaft Theme Song
“Who’s the black private dick
That’s a sex machine to all the chicks?
SHAFT!
Ya damn right!”
Okay, that’s too cool. I mean… hee! Ha! I knew it. I’m so damn cool.

4. Do people secretly lust after me?
How Am I Different – Aimee Mann
“Cause this show is
Too well designed
Too well to be held with only me in mind”
What kind of an answer is that? With the whole feeling of that song, I’d think that’s not exactly a yes here.

5. How can I make myself happy?
Blue Eyed Baby – Leona Naess
“Blue eyed baby say you will be
Waiting for me at the end of my day”
I’m positive he will.

6. What should I do with my life?
Leaning Against a Wall – Kings of Convenience
“Not to fall,
I lean against the wall.
I’m on the floor,
not listening anymore.”
Sometimes I guess the latter’s a good advice. But I don’t think I want to spend my life leaning on walls.

7. Why must life be so full of pain?
Fear – Kronos Quartet and Astor Piazzola
That one doesn’t even have lyrics. But the title isn’t that subtle.

8. Will I ever have children?
Didn’t Treat Me Right – Ebba Forsberg
“You preferred living alone you said
Than bringing somebody home you didn’t like”
Oh thanks. That’s good news. Not. I’m starting to think my music collection is a little bit on the depressing side.

9. Will I die happy?
Come Rain or Come Shine – Frank Sinatra
“The days may be cloudy or sunny
Weâ??re in or out of the money
But Iâ??m with you always
Iâ??m with you rain or shine”
It doesn’t say anything about dying, but it’s a happy song, so it seems I don’t have to worry here.

10. Can you give me some advice?
Red Tape – Nits
“She was always thinking
That the others were the losers
And that they could never kill her too
This is the official word
Now welcome to the papers
And the forms are waiting here for you
It didn’t work at all
She couldn’t stand or fall”
Aha. Thanks, anyway. I think the lesson is a vague ‘Don’t’.

11. What do you think happiness is?
San Francisco – Vanessa Carlton
“We’re back, we’re back in San Francisco
We’re back and you tell me I’m home”
A very good answer.

I’m not tagging anybody, but if you do join, please tell me, so that I can check out your wise and all-knowing iTunes.

PS: I think the real answer will always be that I have a pretty good taste of music. They can’t take that away from me.

    I did mine, most were pretty far off. The thing that caught my eye is that your first song was The Art Teacher. I love that song!! There’s so much tension. I respect your music taste more and more everytime you post.
