What song TITLE best describes you?

Asked by Jonesn4burgers (5904 points ) December 17th, 2013

Lyrics don’t count. What song title best describes the personality type you are.

I have a couple of guesses.
UCME – I Cain’t Say No
Coloma – Oh Where Has My Litte Dog Gone?
ragingloli – The Bitch Is Back
Pachyderm – Leader Of The Pack

How many did I get right?

Problem 1: My name is entirely lower case.
Problem 2: I have no fucking idea how “my song” works in any way.

Correction: “workin for a livin”

@ucme please forgive my blunder. The song I picked was supposed to be so far off base that you, being the rascal that you are, would set me straight and list the exactly appropriate title. I did get it half right, you couldn’t resist setting me straight….. about your name.

@Seek_Kolinahr Maybe they made a mistake and meant this version
I am sure your mom doesn’t look anything like that

Seek's avatar

Oh, no. My mom looks like Rod Stewart. Seriously. I’m not lying.

Oh where oh where has my little goose gone?
Oh where oh where could he be?
With his bright orange beak and cute flappy feet
Oh where oh where could he be?

He’s gone to a ranch in the mountains high
to frolic in bliss all day
and stretch out in his lovely barn and fall deep asleep in the hay! :-)

@Hawaii_Jake absolutely! All sea turtles are sexy. Everybody at my house loves sea turtles.

Everybody else, I feel awful about @ucme. I guess I really offended him. It was all meant in jest. If anyone else feels ruffled, know I meant no harm.

“Circle” by Harry Chapin.

@anniereborn I must be getting to know some jellies,because your choice does NOT surprise me at all. I think it really fits what I’ve seen you write.

ragingloli's avatar

The real title would be “I am going to kill you and your entire family.” by the Crimson Avengers.

ucme's avatar

@Jonesn4burgers You didn’t offend me, it’s just a fun little thread, nowt to get upset over.
No, I didn’t respond because it was bedtime over here & now that the morning has broken, I will…err, I mean I am.
I was teasing you over my username, quite a few people capitalise it, I just take the piss, rascal that I am. I still don’t quite get the song malarky, but hey, it’s all good.

“The City of New Orleans.” Don’t know why.

And on the Rod Stewart thing, there was a really mean theology teacher I had in high school who looked like Rod Stewart.

The Caterpillar by The Cure.

Katniss's avatar

@Jonesn4burgers It was the first song that came to mind. lol

Jonesn4burgers's avatar

I don’t doubt your choice. I just decided it might be best not to ask the “why” question. LOL

Forever Young. Despite my age, I am forever young in my heart. I was so much older then, I’m younger than that now. Lyric is from a different song entirely but seemed appropriate here.

Big Rock Candy Mountain

One evening as the sun went down
And the jungle fires were burning,
Down the track came a hobo hiking,
And he said, “Boys, I’m not turning
I’m headed for a land that’s far away
Besides the crystal fountains
So come with me, we’ll go and see
The Big Rock Candy Mountains

In the Big Rock Candy Mountains,
There’s a land that’s fair and bright,
Where the handouts grow on bushes
And you sleep out every night.
Where the boxcars all are empty
And the sun shines every day
And the birds and the bees
And the cigarette trees
The lemonade springs
Where the bluebird sings
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains.

In the Big Rock Candy Mountains
All the cops have wooden legs
And the bulldogs all have rubber teeth
And the hens lay soft-boiled eggs
The farmers’ trees are full of fruit
And the barns are full of hay
Oh I’m bound to go
Where there ain’t no snow
Where the rain don’t fall
The winds don’t blow
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains.

In the Big Rock Candy Mountains
You never change your socks
And the little streams of alcohol
Come trickling down the rocks
The brakemen have to tip their hats
And the railway bulls are blind
There’s a lake of stew
And of whiskey too
You can paddle all around it
In a big canoe
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains

In the Big Rock Candy Mountains,
The jails are made of tin.
And you can walk right out again,
As soon as you are in.
There ain’t no short-handled shovels,
No axes, saws nor picks,
I’m bound to stay
Where you sleep all day,
Where they hung the jerk
That invented work
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains.
I’ll see you all this coming fall
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains
