What's your theme song quiz results

I am a 17 year old male from North America. I am not a very gregarious person, to be frank. I have friends, and enjoy the company of them, but I do not feel particularly pushed to make new ones right now. I enjoy jazz and latin music, quiet, the rain, reading philosophy, and being alone in my basement. I am also a fitness enthusiast and I regularly engage in strength training, running, and swimming.
This back story is to give you an idea of what type of person I am. Simply stated, I am laconic and a loner. So when browsing the internet on a rainy Thursday afternoon, I was in my comfort zone, listening to jazz as usual and emailing a close friend.
A little whiIe before that day, I acquired a new interest, which involves facial reading and the way the mind works. As a result, I was taking many psychological tests and reading a lot that day. Most of the quizzes went according to my predictions and I learned a lot. I was tired and in the process of dozing off when THAT quiz came up in a link.
The quiz was titled, “What’s your theme song?” and I raised my eyebrows a little, but thought little of it otherwise. I browsed through the questions, answering them as they corresponded with my personality. There were questions about my character traits, interests, preferences and the like. I predicted that the quiz would spit out some kind of song with the intention of “By myself” – linkin park, or something else with that genre and taste, based on the way I am and the answers I provided to the questions. However, I was greatly surprised by the results.
Apparently, this computer determined that in spite of the answers I provided that I enjoy pop music, which I dislike and that I liked music by female singers. No offense intended to anyone, but I have noticed that most of my favorite music has no vocalists, and when it does the vocalists are male. I have nothing whatsoever against female artists, but I am just saying what I have noticed about my taste.
I have also noticed that I prefer dark, slower music. I don’t like fast, loud or screamo music. Its just what I am, or not. And seeing as I am a loner, I prefer my music not to be derivative, dance or “kid’s music”. I want something relaxing. Regardless, the computer spat out a song I had not heard of, by an artist I am not familiar with. My theme song was, according to the computer, “Soak up the Sun” – Sheryl Crow.
By this time, I was seriously intrigued and wondering why the computer had made such a stupid choice. I had to see what this was about. I went to and listened to the song, once. And then again, and again. And another time.

Tomorrowland "Daisy, F3," my son Archer says as we pull into our parking spot. Disneyland’s about to open and we've arrived, just the two of us, our last hoorah before school starts. *** The alarm goes off and I pull the pillow tightly over my head. My husband, Hal, offers to wake the kids so I roll over, fall back asleep until Archer's voice wakes me, this time for good. "Hi, Mommy. It's …

With Both Hands Whenever I think of my mother, my mind flips to this story. Not to the whole story, but right to the middle of it, the worst moments of it. For me, that's where the story always starts. My mother was beating the hell out of me. The first few blows seemed to come from every direction as I grabbed my nightgown and pulled it over my head, not …

Reasons to be Thankful By Robert Israel They scraped me off the street, my bicycle in a heap nearby, and ever so gingerly placed me on the gurney. A crowd of curious onlookers watched intently, thankful they were not being loaded onto the ambulance. The nurses at the hospital were calming as nurses are wont to be, and administered an intravenous tube of morphine, and soon everything around me became fuzzy and numb, and the …
