How does the world see me?
"Moanin'" - Art Blakey - OK, so I bitch quite a bit.

How is my life going?
"So What" - Miles Davis - In my Junior year of High School, I took a Philosphy course. We had to write about our own philosophy of life. Everyone in the class was aghast at my Existential/Nihilist philosophy, and thought it was too depressing, and that they couldn't go on if they took the philosophy as their own. While many argued that my ideas were depressing, none argued that anything I wrote was untrue. I actually thought that since nothing really matters, it freed one up for a hedonistic life, and was shocked that no one else interpreted it that way.

Will I have a happy life?
"Ornithology" - Charlie Parker - Absurd answer must mean "No".

What do my friends really think of me?
"A Love Supreme, Pt 2: Resolution" - John Coltrane - Why couldn't it have been called 'A Lover Supreme...', then everyone would look to me for relief of sexual desire.

Do people secretly lust after me?
"Indian Time Zones" - Warren Cuccurullo - I'm guessing that this means only when they are really far away.

How can I make myself happy?
"Bamboozled By Love" - Frank Zappa - It has been nearly 17 years since I've fallen in love. Guess that is why I'm a bit grumpy.

What should I do with my life?
"Alpha Beta Parking Lot" - Cake - When I finally win the lottery, I must apparently have two parking lots for my privately owned race track.

Will I ever have children?
"Iron Man" - Black Sabbath - Thankfully, I'm pretty sure that this means "no".

What is some good advice for me?
"Caprice No.13 in B Flat" - Paganini/Itzhak Perlman - I should be more frivolous and unlucky but not effervescent?

How will I be remembered?
"Drunkship Of Lanterns" - The Mars Volta - this is my legacy

What is my signature dance song?
"Catholic Girls" - Frank Zappa - Mia Kirshner in Exotica is all that comes to mind.

What do I think my current theme song is?
"Sugar Never Tasted So Good" - The White Stripes - I did drink 2 liters of Diet Dr. Pepper today.

What song will play at my funeral?
"They Never Got You" - Spoon - Duh.

What type of men do I like?
"Love is the Seventh Wave" - Sting - I probably should have changed men to women, either way, cryptic.

What is my day going to be like?
"Stairway To Heaven" - Rodrigo Y Gabriela - I shall apparently be a Rock, and not Roll.

How accurate are the answers?
"Ship of Fools" - World Party - The question I added received the most appropriate/accurate response, negating the need to link to a bunch of Wikipedia articles like http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pareidolia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_cognitive_biases http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Forer_effect

* = not entirely random, but starting with selected song when I first read the meme. I had manually added So What, Ornithology, and A Love Supreme before reading the meme.

In general I'm not a fan of "memes", but doing this one gave me something to do while monitoring a long running critical data manipulation script.
