The Shuffle Picks Your Life's Music Score

Thanks to Oob for this game...

We all talk about the magical qualities of the shuffle.... so, here's how you play the game...

If your life were a soundtrack, what would the music be?

Here’s how it works:
1. open your library (iTunes, winamp, media player, iPod)
2. put it on shuffle
3. press play
4. for every question, type the song that’s playing
5. new question– press the next button
6. don’t lie and try to pretend you’re cool

I was a bit hair on my neck standing up on this one.... it's an emotional day for me.. June is never a good, the selections proved the Mystery of the Shuffle and the serious eclectic music on my PC and lamented red iPod.

I only ever tried that once and it made so little sense to my life that I abandoned it and did something else.

Maybe it's time to try it again.

Or maybe I just need to get rid of all this '80s heavy metal.

Interesting songs! I added a ton of stuff to my iPod this last weekend and it's getting more eclectic by the minute.

gw & lisa~ the jarhead loaded limewire to my pc, and that gave me access to TONS of music. i'd had a week of downloads to do, that helped. otherwise, it would have been josh groban and paul simon and the chieftains on everything.
