Thriftshop Warrior

Thank you, I, Rodius, for the laugh. I had to try my hand at the madness. I was pretty surprised to not see any Public Enemy or Ella Fitzgerald pop up with as much of them as I have. So, here are the rules:

1. Put your MP3/iPod player on shuffle.
2. For each question, press the next button to get your answer. (questions below)
3. YOU MUST WRITE THAT SONG NAME DOWN NO MATTER HOW SILLY IT SOUNDS (option to put the name of artist in brackets next to it)
4. Tag at least 10 friends who might enjoy doing the game as well as the person you got the note from.

WHAT’S THE BEST THING THAT’S EVER HAPPENED TO YOU?
