This is a survey that I pilfered from kissacod, who in turn took it from somebody named Robbo. The link to Robbo's site appeared to be dead.
1] makes you want to dance:
Today it would have to be "Word Up" by Cameo. Don't ask.
2] makes you happy:
"Mayfair" by Nick Drake. Perhaps his jauntiest tune.
3] reminds you of an ex-lover:
4] reminds you of an ex-friend:
"Two Friends" by Cringer
5] describes your relationship with your parents:
"I don't Wanna Go Down to the basement" by the Ramones. No. Just Kidding.
6] makes you cry:
"Porchlight" by Buffalo Tom. Such a pretty damn song. Reminds me of being a teenager.
7] makes you laugh:
The Gourds' cover of "Gin & Juice". Because of it, my brother knows all the words.
8] makes you ponder life:

"V.F.W." by the Dead Milkmen

"God Only Knows" by the Beach Boys

12] you never want to hear again:
Anything by Wings, to start with...
13] you want played at your funeral:
"Wild Mountain Thyme"
14] you want to get married to:
Heather and I have joked about using several schlocky Van Hagar songs, but lately I've been thinking about the Association's "Never, My Love". Mostly because the rhythm guitar on it sounds rad.
15] makes friends think of you:
I dunno. Ask them. Probably "Astro Zombies" by the Misfits or something dumb like that.
16] you once loved but got sick of:
If you don't occasionally get sick of the Pixies, you're not human.
17] you love by a band/artist you hate:
"Photograph" by Def Leppard.
18] you sheepishly admit to liking:
Lots of Neil Diamond songs.
19] makes you want to mosh:
I don't mosh. I might be inclined to pogo, though. Today, the Lilys' "Nanny in Manhattan" made me want to do that.
20] you'd do anything to see played live:
I've already seen Richard Thompson do "1952 Vincent Black Lightning".
21] reminds you of your childhood:
"All night Long" by Lionel Ritchie. My parents listened to garbage.
22] sums up your teenage years:
"Kids Don't Follow" by the Replacements
23] most people like but you hate:
Björk. Man, I hate her sooooooo much.

Luna's Bewitched album.

I prefer silence.
29] you like out of your parents record collection:
Between the Buttons by the Rolling Stones. My parents gave away the rest of their records before I hit puberty and became a music geek.

Smudge, Sneeze, Godstar. And the Monkees.
31] makes you think of someone who died:
I don't really associate any songs with anyone that I know who has died.
32] you love the video more than the tune:
"November Rain" by Guns n' Roses
33] reminds you of your first crush:
"Chemistry" by Jawbreaker
34] is good to listen to whilst holding hands:
"Waterloo Sunset" by the Kinks. Maybe not, but I just wanted to fit it in here somewhere.

I like the incidental music in Rushmore
questions 36 - 39 omitted due to the fact that I couldn't find the original survey.
40] makes you think of sex:
Once again, Fun House by the Stooges, although in no way related to listening to it in the car.

That Neil Halstead album.

"Chicks & Kicks" by the Zipps

Every time I go to Boat, I have to play "I Was Born in a Laundromat" by Camper van Beethoven.

"Walk Away" by the James Gang

Depending on who we're talking about, either "Wild Boys" by Duran Duran, or a tie between "Heaven is a Place on Earth" by Belinda Carlisle and "Crash" by the Primitives.
46] reminds you of your siblings:
My brother really likes to sing along to that cover of "Gin & Juice". It's kinda scary.
47] reminds you of the one you want but can't have:
I have the one I want.
48] you can sing really well:
I can't sing for shit.
49] you love which is instrumental:

I'm watching Beyond the valley of the Dolls right now. Heh heh.
