Put Me In Your Lay Away

I've not done this kind of post before, but it was too intriguing to pass up. I copied it from Dhor's blog, a few days ago. You do it, too, and let me know the results!

You answer the following questions by putting your MP3 player on shuffle and seeing what comes up. Let's tempt fate here, shall we? :o)

IF SOMEONE SAYS “IS THIS OKAY?” YOU SAY?
"Mama Can't Buy You Love" - Elton John (Uhm, I guess that depends on what they want to be okay....)

WHAT WOULD BEST DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONALITY?
"Give Me Strength" - Howard Jones. (LOL I do ask that a lot lately, through gritted teeth. And I'm a strong personality, so I guess it gets answered!)

WHAT DO YOU LIKE IN A GUY/GIRL?
"Show Me The Way To Your Heart" - Mr. President. (Wow, that's about right.)

WHAT IS YOUR LIFE’S PURPOSE?
"Into the Night" - Santana with Chad Kroeger. (Okay, this gave me a chill. This is the song that makes me think of South Carolina. It transports me back to our time in Utah. Lines like "It was love from above that could save me from Hell," and "No room left to move in between you and I." And besides....Chad Kroeger is too yummy to believe.)

WHAT IS YOUR MOTTO?
"Tell Everybody I Know" - Keb' Mo' (The line is actually, "I love my baby, gonna tell everybody I know." Well, I suppose it's accurate....when I get those stirrings, I tell everybody. I gush. That's why I have this blog!)

WHAT DO YOUR FRIENDS THINK OF YOU?
"A Little Less Conversation" - Elvis Presley (Oh? So I gush too much, do I??? ....okay....so maybe I do.....)

WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT VERY OFTEN?
"Honey, I'm Home" - Shania Twain (Okay, yes, I do think of that. I think about who might come home to and how nice that would be. I find joy in the mundane....or I want to.)

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF YOUR BEST FRIEND?
"Still There For Me" - Keb' Mo' (She sorta is, even though she's flaked out on me a lot lately. This "shuffle" thing is a little uncanny!)

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE PERSON YOU LOVE?
"Emotions in Motion" - Billy Squier (This is better than an 8-Ball! Seeing as how I don't know who I love, that emotion is very much in motion!)

WHAT IS YOUR LIFE STORY?
"I Believe" - Mr. President (iPod is kinda stuck on this group today, it seems.... And it is my life story. Often, I have nothing else to hang onto but what I believe -- be it what I believe in spiritually or believing in what I can do or handle.)

WHAT DO YOU WANT TO BE WHEN YOU GROW UP?
"I'll Walk Alone" - Martha Tilton (Oh NO NO! I do not want to walk alone! Okay, the rest of line is "with your love and your kisses to guide me, until you're walking beside me..." That's a little more hopeful. Whew.)

WHAT DO YOU THINK WHEN YOU SEE THE PERSON YOU LOVE?
"G.I. Jive" - Johnny Mercer (Okay, iPod missed the mark on this one.... Since I don't have a "person I love," I suppose my vibes confused it. Yeah, that's it....)

WHAT DO YOUR PARENTS THINK OF YOU?
"Dog Eat Dog" - Adam (Ant) & the Ants (Hmm. Well, I am the go-getter now, in the household. I've gone after everything I have to do to take good care of my kids. And the song is actually about standing up for you, what you believe, what you think, who you are, etc. I've always been that way.)

WHAT WILL YOU DANCE TO AT YOUR WEDDING?
"Burning Love" - Elvis Presley (Okay, this is just FUNNY! I'd LOVE to do a dance to this at my wedding! Especially with my overactive libido.)

WHAT WILL THEY PLAY AT YOUR FUNERAL?
"Peggy Gordon" - the Corrs (This is a traditional Irish love song. It does stir my heart and my Irish blood. Pretty good choice, since I want to be remembered for love and life.)

WHAT IS YOUR HOBBY/INTEREST?
"Follow" - Breaking Benjamin ("I follow you, You follow me!" Hmmm....maybe there's an interest there. I can track just about anybody....remember the idiot who was cheating on his wife? Then again, maybe it's my quest to find a man worthy of following in life, and of following me. A deeper meaning. Wow, I could really grind this idea into the ground, couldn't I?)

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST SECRET?
"My Lagan Love" - the Corrs (Another traditional Irish love song, of a lover admired. I have a couple of those....but one I think of in particular.)

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF YOUR FRIENDS?
"Have I Told You Lately That I Love You?" - Rod Stewart (Awwww! I do need to tell all my friends how I love them, more often.)

WHAT SHOULD YOU POST THIS AS?
"Put Me In Your Lay Away" - Muddy Waters (Okay, that's just funny.)

really good answers here.
I can't do it cause most of my music is instrumental jazz, and I know the name of very little of it, but could try it on itunes if i had the energy!
