The Sounds of My Life

I saw this on Emma's blog and decided to play along.


So, here's how it works:
1. Open your library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, iPod, etc.)
2. Put it on shuffle
3. Press play
4. For every question, type the song that's playing
5. When you go to a new question, press the "next" button
6. Don't lie and try to pretend you're cool!

Opening Credits: Fallen Angel - Alphaville

Waking Up: Video Killed the Radio Store - The Buggles

First Day At School: Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart's Club Band - The Beatles

Falling In Love: I Need Your Love - U2

Fight Song: Sommertage - Composed by Berg, Performed by Anne Sofie Von Otter (Nothing like German Lieder to get your fired up!)

Breaking Up: Staring at the Sun - U2 (That's kind of what it feels like, huh?)

Prom: Muhammad My Friend - Tori Amos (Perhaps this is to symbolically indicate that religion can be as controversial as dress codes at prom.)

Life's OK: Maxwell's Silver Hammer - The Beatles

Mental Breakdown: His Yoke is Easy from The Messiah - Composed by Handel, performed by the London Symphony Orchestra

Driving: Kiss the Rain - Billy Myers (TOTALLY good road trip song)

Flashback: Ships are Sailing - Eileen Ivers

Getting Back Together: Dancing Through Life - Wicked the Musical ("Life's less painless for the brainless"? Yeah, that seems like good ground to build a relationship on.)

Wedding: Least Complicated - Indigo Girls

Birth of Child: Gesu Bambino - performed by Liberace (I swear I didn't cheat on this one. Maybe this is prophetic and someday I'll have a baby on Christmas.)

Final Battle: Fire and Rain - James Taylor

Death Scene: New Year's Day - U2

Funeral Song: Soul Song - David Wilcox

End Credits: Rain King - Counting Crows

There you go. I'm not sure the movie will be any good, but at least the music is.

Tag, you're it.
