Stupid quiz, strangely apt

So I’m going through my hard drive and cleaning up and deleting some old crap right now, and I came across this Word document with one of those stupid quizzes that used to circulate via Facebook notes. This one had 20-odd categories and you were supposed to put your full library on shuffle and assign each consecutive song to the next category. Why I did it in the first place is a mystery to me (maybe to show off what an awesome array of artists I had in my library???? eh???), but I must’ve held on to it because the some of the answers were so ridiculously well-suited to the categories. I shit you not, I skipped no songs to get these answers. Some of them are so perfect you couldn’t even come up with them if you tried (check out “First Kiss”). I’ll reprint them all below, keeping the bad ones in there with the amazing ones, so it doesn’t seem like I made the whole thing up.
