1. Take out your zPod, or your mpZ playing device. Put it on shuffle play.
2. You have to decide if each song is a positive one in terms of survival (songs like Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive" or anything that directly references survival, escape or something like that counts double, even something by Survivor, but I reserve the right to laugh at you), or a negative one in terms of survival (Songs by the Zombies, White Zombie, Rob Zombie, about zombies or death or whatnot count double); if you really can't judge the song, just take it as a pass and it does nothing either way for your chances for survival—remember this is entirely up to you to judge.
3. Keep going until you get 5 songs one way or the other. 5 Surviving songs means you lived. 5 Not surviving songs means you food.
"Good Night" - PJ Harvey
We'll walk on, we'll walk tall
We'll dance once a week at the union hall
We'll have the stars
We'll have the trees
We'll have everything we need to feed
A zombie. But truly, a zombie's life is simple and perhaps even contented.
"Umbilical" - Mazzy Star
Now she can walk in the sunlight with a quiet of relief inside her
Now she walks in the sunlight
An extra feeling inside her soul, makes her cry
Sounds like the Cherry Darling ending. It's survival, anyway.
"Cold Cold Ground" - Tom waits
don't worry about the army
in the cold cold ground
now don't be a cry baby
when there's wood in the shed
there's a bird in the chimney
and a stone in my bed
when the road's washed out
they pass the bottle around
and wait in the arms
of the cold cold ground
Sounds like an unfortunate end for me and the zombies.
"Fucking in Rhythm & Sorrow" - The Sugar Cubes
A divorced lady arrives home from a bar
Guess, guess what she sees, sees there
There is a naked person in my flat!
He's got a weird expression on his face!
Oh my God and Jesus as well!
W-what are you doing here?
Are you hurting your chest?
Make the most of your zombie before he kills you.
Track 7 of the Quake sountrack - Nine Inch Nails
I've beaten Quake, which entailed killing lots of zombies, so I'll call that a win for me.
"Mr. Deadly" - Robyn Hitchcock
Randomly the radio that wanders through the stations like a train
Flickers on the dashboard as the melody dissolves into his brain
Hmm. I'll say this is me continuing to kick ass in Quake.
"Hunter" - Bjork
I'm going hunting
I'm the hunter
I'll bring back the goods
but I don't know when
I've also beaten Doom, Doom II, and several Castlevania games.
"Talking Heads" - Psycho Killer
I can't seem to face up to the facts
I'm tense and nervous and I
I can't sleep 'cause my bed's on fire
Don't touch me I'm a real live wire
So I survive. But at what cost?
