On song: The Artist Quiz Thingy

Jay Singh of Pink Noise got me started on this post, by sharing a note in facebook, where she said:

Pick an artist, and using SONG TITLES from only that artist, cleverly (preferably) answer these questions. This is harder than it seems!

ADDITIONAL RULE: You cannot use the same artist I did, or duplicate song titles even if they were performed by another artist.

  • Are you a male or a female? Babylon Sister(s)
  • Describe yourself: Glamour Profession
  • How do you feel about yourself? The Nightfly (ooh)
  • Describe your ex boyfriend/girlfriend: Black Cow!
  • Describe your current boy/girl situation: Haitian Divorce (no, no, no, no just kidding of course)
  • Describe your current location: The Caves of Altamira
  • Describe where you want to be: The Caves of Altamira (not allowed but who cares?) Okay, okay then: Green Flower Street
  • Your best friend is: My Rival
  • Your favourite colour is: Deacon Blue
  • You know that: Katy Lied
  • If your life was a TV show what would it be called?:Pretzel Logic (for sure!)
  • What is life to you? New Frontier
  • What is the best advice you have to give? Walk Between The Raindrops

Oh, and the band is: Steely Dan

The idea intrigued me, so I had to give it a try. And here are my answers:

  • Are you a male or a female? The Great Pretender
  • Describe yourself: (I Don’t Want To) Hang Up My Rock & Roll Shoes
  • How do you feel about yourself? It Ain’t Me, Babe
  • Describe your ex boyfriend/girlfriend: Most Likely You’ll Go Your Way, I’ll Go Mine
  • Describe your current boy/girl situation: Right As Rain
  • Describe your current location: All Along the Watchtower
  • Describe where you want to be: Up On Cripple Creek
  • Your best friend is: You Angel You
  • Your favourite colour is: Out Of The Blue
  • You know that: I Shall Be Released
  • If your life was a TV show what would it be called?: The WS Walcott Medicine Show
  • What is life to you? Life is a Carnival
  • What is the best advice you have to give? Don’t Do It

The band? The Band! With a little help from Dylan.

BTW Jay is my cousin, and a great person.
