Life Soundtrack

I thought this was pretty cute. I've seen it on a couple of people's blogs but don't have a specific person to credit it to. I thought this was really fun and I didn't cheat at all and it came out pretty darned cool...some of them so cool that it felt like cheating because they were badass!

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… (hey, that’s what the directions said, not me!)

Opening Credits: Lying is the most fun a girl can have with her clothes on – Panic! At the Disco
Waking Up: Leaving So Soon — Keane
First Day At School: Low-Coldplay
Falling In Love: A bad dream- Keane
Fight Song: The News – Jack Johnson
Breaking Up: Hate Me- Blue October (terribly ironic, you know)
Prom: Sophia- Live
Life: Little House- The Fray
Mental Breakdown: The Last Time – Gnarls Barkley
Driving: The Adventure- Angels & Airwaves
Flashback: Temptation- New Order
Getting Back Together: 7 Minutes in Heaven- Fall Out Boy
Wedding: Ceremony – New Order (you can’t even make this stuff up)
Birth of Child: Subculture- New Order
Final Battle: In the End- Linkin Park
Death Scene: How to Save a Life – The Fray
Funeral Song: Start the Machine – Angels & Airwaves
End Credits: Round and Round- Tupac w/Digital Underground

I’ve made up some of my own topics and now I’ll go through them.

Summer 2006- They Call You Bitch- Tupac ( I think only a select few people call me that based on the summer)
My Friends- Love Shines- Live
Dating- Love Like Winter-AFI

I'll bite. Although I have to admit, I'm a little worried I'll get some fucked up Zappa song for something that's supposed to be sentimental and important. Let's see...

Opening Credits: Three Fingers - Buckethead (Probably the worst opening credits song ever)
Waking Up: Anchorless - De-Phazz (More of a 'still dreaming' track)
First Day At School: Don't Get Lost in Heaven - Gorillaz (I like this title, and it seems strangely appropriate - even if it is mostly about "fire coming out of a monkey's head")
Falling In Love: Paranoid - The Crystal Method with Garbage(Wouldn't be my first choice. This sounds like a fuck song, not a love song... Shirley Manson isn't really a romantic singer.)
Fight Song: The Fool on the Hill - The Beatles (HAhahahaha... I'd pay good money to see a fight scene set to this one.)
Breaking Up: Lullaby - The Cure (Surprise! A song from Disintegration as the breakup song.)
Prom: Hail Santa - Primus (?!?!?)
Life: I Don't Know You People - Orbital (Good song - not really the theme to my life though)
Mental Breakdown: Ashes to Ashes - David Bowie (I can dig this... mid 80s, strung out, crazy Bowie. Yeah, that sounds like a breakdown to me.)
Driving: Stubb (a Dub) - Mr. Bungle (Maybe if I were driving a bumper car or veering toward civilians.)
Flashback: A View to a Kill - Duran Duran (Flashback to James Bond in the 80s. Grace Jones and Christopher Walken were in this movie!)
Getting Back Together: Rusty Cage - Johnny Cash (Maybe getting back together with an abusive ex, who kicks your ass and then locks you up in the basement.)
Wedding: Antenna - Kraftwerk (Heh, again, not my first choice. Goofy German guys speaking over early 80s synth-pop isn't the traditional wedding imagery.)
Birth of Child: Fortunate Son - Creedence Clearwater Revival (Ha.)
Final Battle: Ain't Talkin' Bout Love - Van Halen ("You know I lost a lotta friends there, babe..." Yeah, I can see that.)
Death Scene: Moment of Crisis - Orbital (Sounds like I get to die by being buried alive. Great.)
Funeral Song: Memory Lane - Adam Sandler (Riiiight)
End Credits: Neverending Story - Universe (I downloaded this retarded 5-disc set of trance covers of 80s songs. Don't blame me, please.)

That was... interesting.
