Musical 8-Ball Meme
Jon Reid and Randall Phelps, both guys with whom we used to share a church family in California years ago, did this musical shuffle meme, and it looked like fun, so I did it too. Amazing some of the results, really. Try it if you like and let me know so I can see how your experiment turns out!
Here are the instructions as Jon stated them:
1. Put your music player on shuffle.
2. Press next track for each question.
3. Use the song titles to answer the questions, even if it doesn't make sense.

* * *
Ones I thought were particularly amazing "coincidences" include:
Will you get married? "Looking Back" (since it's already done)
What is the story of your life? "Everywhere That You Go" from "The Shape of Grace" (since I've lived a lot of places and depend needily on God's grace)
What is today going to be like? "Get Down" (since our work permit application was refused)
What song describes you? "I Want To Be Moved" from "Without Condition" (since we are about to move to England, except there are some conditions that have to be met first)
To describe your grandparents? from "Autumn in New England" (since all my grandparents lived in New England the whole time I knew them)
What song will they play at your funeral? "Everybody Move With It" from "Set You Free" (since I'll really be free then! And it's a super jazzy upbeat song)
Will you ever have children? "Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree" (since they're already doing that every year)

My full iTunes library is huge with all kinds of stuff ripped from random library disks so this didn't work very well for me until I restricted the shuffle to just my 5-star songs. Then it got kind of creepy. So much so that I think I'll post it on my livejournal which is kind of secret. Email me if you want to see it.
