Wasted: The iTunes Shuffle Meme

Courtesy of my friend Ryan McManus, here's today's music-inspired afternoon-waster. Here's the rules:

1. Put Your iTunes on Shuffle.
2. For each question, press the 'next' button to get your answer. (or listen to each song, like I did.)
3. You must write down the name of the song no matter how silly it sounds!
4. Put any comments in brackets after the song name.
5. (I added this in myself) – Tag some peeps you want to do the same.

What do your friends think of you?
Shakedown on 9th Street – Ryan Adams
I'm pretending this is on 6th St. and is talking about Austin or
else it's insinuating that I'm hookering it up in the 'hood of SF.

If someone says, “Is this okay?” You say?
I Can Feel Your Pain – Manchester Orchestra
Surprisingly fitting.
