SOUNDTRACK TO MY LIFE:

So, here’s how it works:
1. Open your library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, iPod, etc)
2. Put it on shuffle
3. Press play
4. For every question, type the song that’s playing
5. When you go to a new question, press the next button
6. Don’t lie and try to pretend you’re cool and no disclaimers allowed.

  6. Ed, you’d been spam captured. Have you been sending people spam? Naughty!

    Dom, I like your funeral song. Some music should just be in German. Even if I can only understand a tenth of it.

  7. Dom

    German lyrics just sound hard – even if the chorus to Sonne does translate to ‘here comes the sun, here comes the sun, here comes the sun’ 😀
