Totally ripped off from Danigirl. Except that number 8 is my addition.

Automatic for the People by REM

2. You are in the worst. mood. ever. Name three songs that would cheer you up.
These are Days by 10,000 Maniacs
The Sidewinder Sleeps Tonight by REM
Desert Rose by Sting

3. Your in-laws just called. They are in town unexpectedly and want to drop by for coffee in an hour. The house looks like the preschool maurading hoardes have been through on a crusade. Which three albums have enough energy to pump you up for the task?

5. Name three songs that make you think of your pre-high school childhood.
Our Lips Are Sealed by the Go-Go's
Open Arms by Journey
Don't Give Up on Us by David Soul (Okay, stop snickering. I was about 7, and this was the first 45 I ever owned.)

6. The kids are in bed. Your significant other is elsewhere. You have a (bottle of red wine/pot of tea/case of beer), a great book and the evening to yourself. What music is playing in the background?
Suzanne Vega
The Story

7. Name one new (2005) song, CD or band that you've 'discovered'.
Black-Eyed Peas. ("Discovered" in the loosest sense, but for someone like me who is not a hip-hop fan at all, I've decided to be all impressed with myself for branching out.)

8. Name three songs that make you weepy.
Angel in the House by the Story
Ghost in You by the Psychedelic Furs
Why Should I Cry for You by Sting
