Today, I'll be doing a music post, working with that Facebook game with questions that the songs are meant to answer. Sometimes it's really funny, or fitting, and other times it makes no sense. I'll add my comments in parentheses. Let me know what you think!
SOMEONE SAYS ‘ARE YOU OKAY’ YOU SAY?
"At the Burrow" Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt 1 Score
(Fittingly, I'm generally OK if I'm with my friends.)
WHAT WOULD BEST DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONALITY?
"Dumbledore's Speech" Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince Score
(Nonsensical, although I suppose I do use lots of words.)
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOURSELF?
"Battle of Jericho" NMMEA All State Mixed Choir 2011
(Well, I'm a fighter, all right, and I like to think myself epic.)
WHAT DO YOU LIKE IN A GUY/GIRL?
"Stay Young, Go Dancing" Death Cab for Cutie
(I do like dancing. That's pretty romantic.)
HOW DO YOU FEEL TODAY?
"Symphony No. 8" 8th Grade LAMS Orchestra
(Orchestral, apparently. Or young.)
WHAT IS YOUR LIFE’S PURPOSE?
"Break Up" The Twilight Saga: New Moon Score
(No, I do not believe it's my life's purpose to break anyone up... haha.)
WHAT’S YOUR MOTTO?
"The Memory of Trees" Enya
(Hmm. Interesting. I'm not a green person, but the other way you could take this is in the ancient
meaning and story quality of trees, which is very like me.)
WHAT DO YOUR FRIENDS THINK OF YOU?
"Why Have You Brought Me Here?/Raoul, I've Been There" The Phantom of the Opera Soundtrack
(I'm a traumatized person, apparently. Not entirely untrue.)
WHAT DO YOUR PARENTS THINK OF YOU?
"Breath of Life" Florence + the Machine
(Oooh, I love this song. How it fits the question, I have no idea. But it's one of my favorites.)
WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT VERY OFTEN?
"Get Back" Demi Lovato
(Getting back in a romantic relationship is a pretty common thought for most people, yes.)
WHAT IS 2 + 2?
"We Could Go Home" The Hunger Games Score
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF YOUR EX BOY/GIRL/BEST FRIEND?
"You Belong With Me" Taylor Swift
(Ooooh, that's very fitting. Nice job, iPod shuffle.)
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE PERSON YOU LIKE?
"Harry and Hermione" Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince Score
WHAT IS YOUR LIFE STORY?
"If Today Was Your Last Day" Nickelback
(That's nice and deep. Not sure if it's accurate, but I like it.)
WHAT DO YOU WANT TO BE WHEN YOU GROW UP?
"Dona Nobis Pacem" The Chamisa Singsations
(Either this is saying "peacemaker", or "a little kid again". I'm going with the first.)
WHAT DO YOU THINK WHEN YOU SEE THE PERSON YOU LIKE?
"One Last Shot" Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl Score
WHAT WILL YOU PLAY AT YOUR WEDDING?
"Pyramid" Charice feat. Iyaz
(Awwwww, that's a very adorable song, describing exactly what I want in a romance. Yes. I like that.)
WHAT WILL THEY PLAY AT YOUR FUNERAL?
"Come Away to the Water" Maroon 5 feat. Rozzi Crane from The Hunger Games Soundtrack
(I like that too. That's a song about sacrifice and being asked to do a terrible task. That could be how I
die. I could go out like that.)
WHAT IS YOUR HOBBY/INTEREST??
"The 12 Days of Christmas" Straight No Chaser
(My options are a cappella singing, holiday stuff, or giving my true love gifts. Interesting.)
WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST FEAR?
"Second Chance" Shinedown
(A song about leaving your loved ones behind to get a second chance in the relationship. Hmm.
Seems more happy in a thoughtful way than frightening...)
WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST SECRET?
"All the Right Moves" OneRepublic
(That I truly think I will fail in comparison to others. True, although it's not much of a secret.)
WHAT DO YOU WANT RIGHT NOW?
"It's Not My Time" 3 Doors Down
(To keep fighting!)
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF YOUR FRIENDS?
"Get Smart Theme" Get Smart Score
(MUAHAHAHA. WE ARE SECRET AGENT NINJAS.)
WHAT’S THE WORST THING THAT COULD HAPPEN?
"Final Waltz + Apotheosis" Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker
(Saying goodbye to a fun, beautiful fantasy world is not a very happy thing, truly.)
WHAT IS THE ONE THING YOU REGRET?
"Hall of the Mountain King" Apocalyptica
(...COME TO THE DARK SIDE. WE HAVE COOKIES.)
WHAT MAKES YOU LAUGH?
"Carmen Suite #2 - Habanera" Bizet
(Trying to be seductive is pretty amusing when it comes to me.)
WHAT MAKES YOU CRY?
"Ron's Speech" Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt 2 Score
(Actually, this part made me laugh, because of the look on Hermione's face.)
WILL YOU EVER GET MARRIED?
"Mine" Taylor Swift
(That seems optimistic.)
WHAT SCARES YOU THE MOST?
"Elgar/Something Inside" August Rush Soundtrack
(This is a good track. I guess it could be saying losing the person you love, which is true.)
DOES ANYONE LIKE YOU?
"Tarantella" Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker
(Does this make me the Sugar Plum Fairy's suitor?)
IF YOU COULD GO BACK IN TIME, WHAT WOULD YOU CHANGE?
"Titanium" David Guetta feat. Sia
(I'd be stronger. True story.)
There you go! That was a pretty nice batch.
Go ahead and do it yourself if you'd like. Thanks for reading, and I'll see you Saturday for some fun resources, tools, and other schtuff for writers.
I'm an unpublished novelist, primarily of YA fantasy, and a freelance editor. I love psychology, cats, social justice, and love! I'm also a huge fangirl. More than anything, stories are my life.
