There's a distinct lack of really bad music so far. Methinks some people are using the "skip" button....

I don't think I've got any completely rubbish stuff. Ingrid Michaelson is a bit of a guilty pleasure.

It has inspired me to listen to my old Ghost of Bongo albums though so that's cool.

I have no shit music on my ipod either. The shittiest it gets is probably the Dethklok album, or Beastie Boys' To The Five Boroughs, which was arse, but had great singles.

I was just using a wee shuffle, which doesn't have much dodgy stuff on it....if it had been my bigger i-pod the embarrassment factor might've been higher. (Big chance of George Formby coming up regularly).

It's inevitable that my ipod will save all the pap for when I actually want to listen to it. I suspect a pile of shite post-rock awaits me for my upcoming walk to the shops.

If I was going to cheat I probably wouldn't have left Puddle of Mudd in there...

I remember doing something like this before...

Och aye:

http://www.aberdeen-music.com/forums/general-discussion/47657-another-silly-ipod-shuffle-game.html

I'm going to have to do them again now.

Put your computer, mp3 player, multi cd player or Ipod on "shuffle" and use each subsequent song it plays as an answer to these questions.

No cheating, by the way!! Dont edit out songs that you don't want others to know you like!! This has to be completely random for it to be fun!

These are my results.......

How am I feeling today?

Will I get far in life?

How do my friends see me?

What's my best friend's theme song?

What is the story of my life?

What is/was highschool like?

How can I get ahead in life?

What is the best thing about me?

How is today going to be?

What is in store for this weekend?

What song describes my parents?

What song descirbes my grandparents?

How is my life going?

What song will they play at my funeral?

How does the world see me?

Will I have a happy life?

What do my friends really think of me?

Do people secretly lust after me?

Soundtrack of my life (lol)

If your life was a movie, what would the soundtrack be?

1. Open your library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, iPod, MP3 etc)

2. Put it on shuffle

3. Press play

4. For every question, type the song that's playing

5. When you go to a new question, press the next button

6. Don't lie and try to pretend you're cool!

Opening Credits:

First Day At School:

Growing Up:

Falling In Love:

First Kiss:

Breaking Up:

Getting Back Together:

Prom:

Sad bit:

Happy Bit:

Fight Song:

Mental Breakdown:

Driving:

Graduation:

Flashback:

Final Good Byes/Moving On:

Wedding:

Birth of Child:

Final Battle:

Death:

Funeral Song:

Rememberance Song:

End Credits:

I've got some real dross, let's have another go:

1. Full force gale - Van Morrisson

2. The information - Beck

3. Music makin' mama from Memphis - R D Hendon & His Western Jamboree Cowboys

4. Tennessee blues - Steve Earle

5. Brown and root (Live) - Steve earle

6. Nitemare hippy girl - Beck

7. The 59th street bridge song (feelin' groovy) - Simon & Garfunkel

8. Copperhead road - Steve Earle

9. The door was always open (Live) - Joe Pug

10. Can't go on this way - The Hot Club of Cowtown

Hmm. Still good tunes, but despite the fact that I have a lot of Steve Earle and Beck on there I can't help thinking it's not as random as it might be.

I do like it, but I struggle to listen to it all the way through. It gets a bit silly.

Aye those two weren't bad. The rest of them didn't really tie in though.

I'd be a little worried about "Birth of Child: "BULLET IN THE HEAD" "
