got this rolling the other day, it’s about time I posted my bit. These are exactly the random tracks I got when I sat down to cast my troubles on the music 8 ball. No cheats, even listened to the tracks as I went… mostly. Made for a nice stroll down amnesia lane.
Most links go to the iTMS, but where iTunes samples weren’t available, I found other info. Hover over the link and your browser will give you more info. (Love the title attribute!)
- How am I feeling today?
- Christmas Time (Don’t Let the Bells End), The Darkness, Christmas Time Single
Today and every day.
- Will I get far in life?

Apparently I’ll become a famous hero, turn evil, plot for years, then defeat my greatest enemy, only to be killed by a witch that wants to keep good and evil perfectly balanced. So do I practice the heroics or the maniacal laughter first?
- How do my friends see me?
- Sick of Waking Up, Deadlocked, The Start of Something
Sorry for no links. Deadlocked is a Provo, UT-based band that my brother ran with, even has a couple tracks on the album. They broke up a year ago, as has any trace of them on the web. Just go from the title.
