The Soundtrack to Your Life

I saw this on Pel's blog and had to try it out.

IF YOUR LIFE WAS A FILM, WHAT WOULD THE SOUNDTRACK BE?

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 your cool...because you're not.

Opening Credits:
I Could Die For You - Red Hot Chili Peppers

Waking Up:
Lovers In A Dangerous Time - Barenaked Ladies

First Day At School:
Pull Me Through - Jim Cuddy

Falling In Love:
The Sad Cafe - Eagles (how depressing!)

Fight Song:
Do You Want To - Franz Ferdinand

Breaking Up:
All I Can Do Is Cry - Etta James (how appropriate!)

Prom:
Soft and Wet - Prince (I am not making this up!)

Life:
Do You Know? - The Odds

Mental Breakdown:
Uptight - Green Day

Driving:
Magic Bus - The Who (excellent!)

Flashback:
My Funny Valentine - Chet Baker

Wedding:
Tango Till They're Sore - Holly Cole (well, there was some serious dancing at our wedding)

Birth Of Child:
A Case Of You - Joni Mitchell

Final Battle:
10 Dollar - M.I.A.

Death Scene:
Jump, Jive, An' Wail - Louis Prima (hee, hee)

Funeral Song:
The Night Pat Murphy Died - Great Big Sea (I get the feeling that my funeral will be a great party!)

End Credits:
Never - The Cool Waters Band


What's your soundtrack?

The shuffle was working for me tonight! Given what's on my iPod, it could have been disastrous!

e-Lizabeth said...

haha! me too - but I did luck out - the shuffle gods (or maybe the shuffle demons??) were smiling on me! :)

vivian said...

Shuffle Demons!...that's what's missing on my iPod...

e-Lizabeth said...

"get on the bus - the Spadina bus!" Ah, the demons - you so need them!

I distinctly remember watching the Shuffle Demons in an interview on CTV's Live It Up. How's that for vintage Canadiana!

I actually work with one of the former members. Thankfully, he doesn't wear the funny clothes anymore.

By the way, the video is on You Tube.

My favourite lyric...

"Dug deep down in my pocket, to try and find some coin, but much to my shagrin, all I found was my groin!"

Brilliant.

Thanks Pel. I'm very happy with how mine turned out. Yours isn't so bad either.
