There's an entry before this one for today, so click back people.

I was cruising through missed entries over at Candoor's place (I'd link but my head aches too much) and found this:
I warn you, it's a lot of words. If your head aches too you might want to skip it.

a musical survey

Realizing that favorites change with mood and over the course of a lifetime, try to come up with the best song that answers the questions below - the one right answer for you. Some questions ask for two answers. If the same song answers more than one question, that's ok. If you have several answers for some questions, list them all. Feel free to explain why if you're in the mood to talk music. If you feel inspired, take this survey as a meme for your diary. Let me know where it is so I can read it too.

What song best represents your emotional state right now (what song speaks best to your heart)?
Who Do You Think You Are – Duran Duran

I think lyrics are in order for this one:
I'm giving you the news
Your domination's through
You gave the best you've got
Now I'm out on top

If you're in any doubt
Listen to me
I've got a right to say
If you know what it's all about
Who do you think you are?

Don't want to be your enemy
If I'm not the one you want me to be
And I've got to do things the way that I do

Always trying to control me
Who do you think you are?

Our time on earth is running through
(This is not a question of my pride)
Sometimes I think it's a game to you
(Ever wonder how I feel inside?)
And sometimes I play along
But man I've got a mind!

You've got to live with yourself
For the rest of you life
Do you understand?
Everybody asks themselves the question
Who do you think you are?

It's just occurred to me
A possibility
The thought that you might really want to be me?
