FRIDAY FUN: SEAN'S 2012 FUTURE AS PREDICTED IN SONG

I did a little playlist shuffle on January 1st to get a prediction of how 2012 is gonna be. A musical version of Tarot cards, if you will.

1. Athenaeum – Flat Tire

2. Bare, Jr. – You Blew Me Off

3. Cross Canadian Ragweed – Burn Like the Sun

(Hmmm, seems like its going to be a rough start in the romance area)

4. REM – Every Day is Yours to Win

5. Big Star – You Get What You Deserve

(Well, there are a couple of rays of hope…although Big Star could go either way. I think I’ll take the positive interpretation.)

6. The Byrds – Glory, Glory
(Maybe I should take this as a sign I need to be going to church. The world is going to end, after all)

7. Drive-By Truckers – Why Henry Drinks
(A warning against even thinking about getting back with ex? Don’t worry…ain’t happening)

8. Hellbound Glory – In the Gutter Again
(Another warning against getting back with the ex, ’cause in the gutter is where I’ll end up)

9. The Smithereens – House We Used to Live In
(All right, I get it. STAY AWAY FROM THE EX! Point made. Can we please move on.)

10. The Flaming Lips – She Don’t Use Jelly
(Much like the song, I don’t know what this is supposed to mean)
(AIV Note: Me neither but it sounds uncomfortable. Like sex in the back of a Volkswagen)

11. Justin Townes Earle – Halfway to Jackson
(Great. More woman trouble.)

12. Material Issue – This Letter
(I’m gonna get all creepy/stalkery on someone? I’m embarrassed to say, it would be history repeating itself.)

13. Georgia Satellites – Six Years Gone
(Are we back on the ex again? Although, it was more like sixTEEN years gone. I guess I have to take what the music spirits have to work with.)

14. Paul Thorn – Tequila is Good for the Heart
(Why, yes…yes it is! Especially with all the woman trouble I’m gonna have.)

15. Drivin’ & Cryin’ – Preapproved, Predenied
(I guess I better not expect any pay raises. A nice warning for an election year.)

Overall, I guess same as last year. Romance is gonna be shaky, stay away from the ex, and don’t even think about getting rich. Could be worse, I guess.
