Fun Forward From Cluff

If your life was a movie, what would its soundtrack be?

So, here's how it works:
1. Open your library (iTunes, iPod, Winamp, Windows Media Player,
et cetera)
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

Opening Credits:
One World (Not Three) - The Police
Album: Ghost in the Machine (never heard this before)

Waking Up:
Reptilia - The Strokes
Album: Room on Fire

First Day At School:
Across the Universe- The Beatles
Album: I think this is on Let It Be, but Kyle has it in itunes on some box set, Beatles 1967-70

Falling In Love:
Gold Digger - Kanye West (what are the odds?)
Album: Late Registration

Fight Song:
Forget the Flowers - Wilco
Album: Being There

Break up song:
Bubble Gum Years - Gomez
Album: Bring It On

Ma! She's Makin' Eyes at Me! - Billy Eckstine
Album: Compact Jazz (something of Kyle's- actually it would be a fun one to formal dance to)

Life's Okay:
What It Feels Like For a Girl - Madonna
Album: Music (nice selection, iTunes!)

Mental Breakdown:

The Metal - Tenacious D
Album: The Pick of Destiny (actually has a nice mental breakdown rhythm)

Respectable - The Rolling Stones
Album: Some Girls (The Stones are ALWAYS great to drive to-hey I'm pretty impressed with how well the "shuffle" button has chosen my soundtrack!)

Gasoline - Audioslave
Album: Audioslave (ah... just as I was complimenting the shuffle, it picks a stinker. This song is NOT a great flashback song- I was hoping for some Tori Amos or Sarah McLachlan for my misty filtered memory scene.)

Get Back Together:
Valentine's Day - Bruce Springsteen
Album: Tunnel of Love (Okay, so just to get back at me, the shuffle has to pick a song from TUNNEL OF LOVE- not just any song, but one called VALENTINE'S DAY for getting back together! Nicely played, shuffle. But what will my wedding song be? Guerilla Radio? Dr. Feelgood?)

I'm a Cuckoo - Belle & Sebastian
Album: Dear Catastrophe Waitress (Hmmm. Not sure what to make of this. Is this a comment on marriage in general?)

Final Battle:
Saludos Amigos - The Disney Studio Chorus
Album: And the Winner is: A Collection of Honored Disney Classic Songs

Death Scene:
Pablo Picasso - David Bowie
Album: Reality

Funeral Song:

Everybody Needs Someone Sometime - Jewel
Album: This Way

End Credits:
Thank the Lord for the Night Time - Neil Diamond
Album: The Greatest Hits- 1966-1992 (Well, I can't argue with Neil Diamond as a closer.)
