I'm confused. You have to pick a song that he knows? Because otherwise how would he know if he likes it or not? And how would you know? Seems like it would take quite a while to randomly land on a song that you both know and is good enough to use as an argument for your survival. Or are you supposed to sing for him? What if you're a bad singer? What if the song is truly great and would convince him to spare you but it requires musical accompaniment and can't be done correctly a capella? Or are you supposed to play it for him? So that means you're limited to only what's available on your music player? His too, presumably, assuming he'd share it, which means you're probably better off asking to see his collection and picking one of his songs, since he presumably already likes those.

It's an intriguing thought experiment, subby, I just need a little more clarity as to the actual rules.

Pick your favorite song. That way if he doesn't like it, at least you got to hear your favorite song before you croaked.

Never gonna shoot you up
Never gonna gun you down
Never gonna run around and perforate you
Never gonna make you die
Never gonna say goodbye
Never gonna tell a lie and AR-15 you

It depends. When does the gunman get to decide whether he likes the tune or not?

More to the point, how do I know this isn't simply his idea of humiliating his victim before killing him (or her) anyway?

If he agrees to wait till the end of the song, simply sing:

This is the song that doesn't end
Yes it goes on and on my friend
Some people started singing it not knowing what it was
And they will keep on singing it forever just because...

...and repeat till law enforcement arrives on the scene (or he shoots you---at least you tried).

If you can't enjoy this song, you're dead inside anyway and wouldn't honor the agreement not to shoot.

I've had Eddie Money's Take Me Home Tonight stuck in my head for a week now. I have no idea why, I haven't heard it anywhere, never really liked the song, but it's been there none the less. That would be my song. If he shoots me, fine, I'd almost welcome it at this point. With any luck it will be stuck in his head longer.

Mr. KJUW89 and I were talking recently about how neither of us know anyone who doesn't like this song.  It was popular enough that most people have heard it, but not so popular that it suffered from overexposure.
