Here we go again for the umpteenth time!
The rules are simple: add all your music folders to your player of choice and set it on shuffle. The titles of tracks will be answers to the questions below. (I usually skip instrumental tracks but that is a personal preference.)
1. Where am I by the beginning of 2018?
Elvis Presley – ‘Paralyzed’
When you looked into my eyes
I stood there like I was hypnotised
You sent a feeling to my spine
A feeling warm and smooth and fine
But all I could do were stand there paralyzed
When we kissed, ooh what a thrill
You took my hand and, ooh baby, what a chill
I felt like grabbin’ you real tight
Squeeze and squeeze with all my might
But all I could do were stand there paralyzed
Heh, heh… I suppose there’s someone who feels that way about me just now indeed 🙂
2. My main task in 2018.
Puscifer – ‘The Undertaker’
Before I go tell me
Were you ever who you claimed yourself to be?
Either way I must say goodbye
You are dead to me
Right. Must not repeat mistakes from the past. Got it.
3. Self-fulfillment in 2018, my “me” this year.
Tom Waits – ‘Babbachichuija’
That… is an enigma, it seems 😀
4. Financial matters in 2018.
Wig Wam – ‘In My Dreams’
I don’t know if this is what it seems
Is it real or just a fantasy?
Aim to please is all you every do
Making all my fairytales come true
5. Relatives and neighbours in 2018.
Elvis Presley – ‘(Marie’s the Name of) His Latest Flame’
Drama ahead? Business as usual, then…
6. Home in 2018.
Sinead O’Connor – ‘Jump in the River’
And if you said jump in the river I would
Because it would probably be a good idea
You’re not supposed to be here at all
It’s all been a gorgeous mistake
Sick one or clean one
The best one
That God ever made
Iiiiiiinteresting… I wonder if I’ll move?
7. Love in 2018.
Tom Waits – ‘Get Behind the Mule’
Got to get behind the mule, yeah
In the morning and plow
Get behind the mule in the morning and plow
I wonder if this means I won’t be the only one doing the emotional labor this time…?
8. Health in 2018.
Pink – ‘Funhouse’
This used to be a funhouse
But now it’s full of evil clowns
It’s time to start the countdown
I’m gonna burn it down down down
I’m gonna burn it down
Uh… will I start smoking again? We’ll see.
9. Partnership in 2018.
Placebo – ‘Julien’
Fallen angles in the night
And everyone is barred from Heaven
Just one more hit to make it right
But everyone turns into seven
Now that it’s snowing in your brain
Another ten will not placate you
This ain’t no killer for the pain
This avalanche will suffocate you
That sounds like a warning but what the hell, let’s enjoy the ride.
10. Loans, mysticism and sex in 2018.
Tool – ‘Faaip De Oiad’
OK, um, um, OK,
what we’re thinking of as, as aliens,
they’re extradimensional beings,
that, an earlier precursor of the, um, space program they made contact with.
They are not what they claim to be.
Uh, they’ve infiltrated a, a lot of aspects of, of, of the military establishment,
particularly the Area 51.
Mystical? Definitely! 😀
11. Travels in 2018.
Depeche Mode – ‘More Than a Party’
Lots of surprises in store
This isn’t a party it’s a whole lot more
Yes please, it’s been a while 😀
12. Career and new work-related commitments in 2018.
David Bowie – ‘Janine’
Your strange demand
To collocate my mind
Scares me into gloom
You’re too intense
I’ll have to keep you in your place
I’ve no defense
I’ve got to keep my veil on my face
Yeah, challenges, I get it 😀
13. Friends and social affairs in 2018.
Pink Floyd – ‘Nobody Home’
And I’ve got second sight
I got amazing powers of observation
And that is how I know
When I try to get through
On the telephone to you
There’ll be nobody home
Gee, thanks, guys 😀
14. Secrets and processes in the subconscious in 2018.
Metallica – ‘Bleeding Me’
I’m diggin’ my way
I’m diggin’ my way to somethin’
I’m diggin’ my way to somethin’ better
I’m pushin’ to stay
I’m pushin’ to stay with somethin’
I’m pushin’ to stay with somethin’ better
I’m sowing the seeds
I’m sowing the seeds I take
I’m sowing the seeds I take for granted
This thorn in my side
This thorn in my side is from the tree
This thorn in my side is from the tree I’ve planted
It tears me and I bleed
Looks like there’s some serious contemplation ahead…
15. Where am I by the end of 2018?
Nine Inch Nails – ‘Heresy’
He sewed his eyes shut because he is afraid to see
He tries to tell me what I put inside of me
He got the answers to ease my curiosity
He dreamed up a god and called it Christianity
God is dead and no one cares
If there is a hell, I’ll see you there
Well, that’s… deeper than expected 😀 But I’ve always known that I’m not fit for the Christian heaven.
