Oscar Wilde said, "One's real life is so often the life that one does not lead." I should've been the one to get to say that.


Quiz Description

I'm at a conference, and the TV in my hotel room has Pandora as a channel. So, while I read a little and maybe pack, the next 12 songs it plays will be the questions for this quiz. I'll list the song and the album Pandora says it comes from, you name the artist. For what it's worth, I have it on a station I created years ago called Foo Fighters Radio (not that it means much anymore - a Sarah Bareilles song found it's way on it this morning).
