Music 8 ball meme

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?
暗黒皇帝ベルドのテーマ (Beld’s Theme), 萩田光男・他, ロードス島戦記 (Record of Lodoss War) OST

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.

Who Is This Man?, Michael McLean, The Garden

um… okay

What do my friends really think of me?

That might explain some… no. It really doesn’t.

Do people secretly lust after me?

Okay, when did I get famous enough to have a “Family Snapshot” style stalker?

Will I accomplish my goals in life?
