I found the following on a couple of blogs that I read. I have always loved music. But it seems that over the years of my marriage my taste in music has been overridden by the CarGuy's. It wasn't done intentionally. And it wasn't done by him, it was my subconscious doing it. I realized this a couple of months ago as I was loading up my mp3 player thinking "oh, he doesn't like this song." Then it was as if a light bulb went off! Whoa! it's MY player, therefore MY music and besides, when is he ever going to listen to what you put on your player, hmmmm? What a revelation that was. The following list doesn't show the podcasts and audiobooks I subscribe to, but it does give an idea of the ecclectate assortment of genre and artists I listen to. I think this quiz might have been written by a young person because of some of the questions.
To play, you need an mp3 player with a song shuffler. It's like playing a modern version of the old "Eight Ball". Ask the question and press play. The song that comes up is the answer. Ask the next question and press the next button on your player, etc. And so, for your reading pleasure:
