Play a silly game

with 5 comments

My wonderful friend Ian sent me one of those things that ordinarily I’d ignore through my soon-to-be-deleted-from-my-life Facebook page. I gave it a go, and rather than get sucked back into the Facebook world, I thought I’d chuck it up on the blog. If you feel like giving it a go and sharing, feel free to use the comments to do it, or link to your blog page.

INSTRUCTIONS
1. Put your iPod or iTunes or other music player on shuffle.
2. For each question, press the NEXT button to get your answer.
3. Write down the title of the song under the subsequent question.

Some of them make no sense, but when they do make sense, there’s a frisson of joy in my belly. And, oddly, Ian and I both had the same Denim and Stan Getz songs in there.
