Without knowing all of the songs, of the top of my head, you have to remember that the answer may not live in the title but in the text or context of the song itself.

All forms of divination, whether it be tarot or runes or tea leaves or itunes are subjective and open to interpretation by both the reader and the read.

An example fo this could be 12.: Where the answer could lead to either homosexuality or spirituality...

Or number 12 could have something to do with the scene in "Almost Famous" in which it appears - in which you get to see Kate Hudson's tits.

Come yakboy, you'll never be a decent soothsayer if you read the signs so literally. Let me try reinterpreting your results...

1. What do you think of me?
Get Me Outta Here - Jet
The problem here is the question: What does who think of you? Youre Ipod? Next you'll be asking your tealeaves what they think of you. Try asking how the rest of the world thinks of you.

2. Will I have a happy life?
Follow Me Home - Dire Straits
Hmm, this one seems to be saying that you will be followed dire straits, and I'm guessing here that the Ipod didn't mean the band. Bummer, man.

3. What do my friends really think of me?
Golden Slumbers Ben Folds cover version
So, they think I'm boring?
Yes, that is a valid reading. On the other hand, it is Golden Slumbers and that is a lulluby. Maybe your friends see you as someone safe they can trust. Admittedly, that is a bit of a stretch though. Probably is boring.

4. Do people secretly lust after me?
Think - Aretha Franklin
I think they do.
Admittedly, another good reading - alternatively people might be secretly attracted to your intellect, but that is another stretch.

5. How can I make myself happy?
Always See Your Face - Love
So, I should shave off the beard?
Look, someone had to say it.

6. What should I do with my life?
(Just Like) Starting Over - John Lennon
I should spend my life starting over?
Well, either that or it's just telling you to start over right now. Bear in mind though, that it's not actually "Starting Over" but "(Just Like) Starting Over" It's an interesting approach to life, starting over, seeing every new day as if it is the first of the rest of your life, etc.

7. Why must life be so full of pain?
Galapagos?Smashing Pumpkins
Not necessarily. Several things are notable about Galapagos. Most notably, it is on the equator, so maybe your ipod is telling you that life hurts because you live in a state of balance. Alternatively, it could be telling you that you are a giant turtle - which, admittedly, is probably a painful thing to be.

8. How can I maximize my pleasure during sex?
Day O (The Banana Boat Song)- Harry Belafonte
I think the interpretation is pretty obvious.
Interesting, however, to note that it is your pleasure the bananas are maximising.

9. Will I ever have children?
Little Ghost - The White Stripes
Man, that's creepy.
Yes but you can circumvent it now by resolving to call all your children Casper!

10. Will I die happy?
It's the Sun - The Polyphonic Spree
I'll take that as a yes.
Indeed, but in light of earlier answers, it would have been nice if you had got the banana boat song again.

11. Can you give me some advice?
Only In Dreams - Weezer
As with your first question: You won't get good answers asking your Ipod for advice or opinions. It's just a machine. However, it is probably just as useful a tool for 'tapping into the world consciousness/your subconscious/hippy entity of your choice. Never going to be as useful as dreams, though. They're the best when it comes to letting you know about the future. How many song titles are there about fat cows and starving cows?

12. What do you think happiness is?
I'm Waiting For the Man - David Bowie
See the above answer. To your average Ipod, there is no greater joy than playing David Bowie music. Simple as that.

13. What's my favourite fetish?
Dear John - Aimee Mann
Ahem...
I aint touching this one.

14. How will I be remembered?
The Boxer - Simon and Garfunkel
Somehow I doubt it
Well, it depends what kind your thinking about, doesn't it?

So there you go. As with all these things, it's just a matter of imaginative interpretation!

Oh, and please place a smiley alongside all of my 'interpretations!' :)
