The Walk: iPod protocol

LisaB. did this sucker over at Facebook, and somehow implicated me (I'm unclear as to how all that works. I may not actually belong in the 21st century.) But I'm putting off cleaning my house, which task is so overwhelming and monumental that I may hire in someone out of desperation. Or ask my mommy to help me.

1.Put your iPod/iTunes on shuffle to get the first answer.
2. For each subsequent question, press the next button to get your answer.
3. YOU MUST WRITE THAT SONG NAME DOWN NO MATTER HOW SILLY IT SOUNDS!
4. Tag 10 friends who might enjoy doing the game as well as the person you got the note from.

Okay, people. Mostly because I'm intrigued by what folks listen to, I'm going to tag some people. In fact, I want to tag you. Yes you, and you know who you are. You can choose not to accept, and I won't be hurt. But I'm really curious and I need the distraction.

you may not belong to the 21st century? When was the last time you read a non-scholarly book written in the 21st century? OK, the last non-scholarly, grown-up book written in the 21st century?
