Here's a meme I picked up from Poppy Z. Brite's blog.
IF YOUR LIFE WERE A MOVIE, WHAT WOULD THE SOUNDTRACK BE?
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 - "Eyes Wide Open" by King Crimson
Waking Up - "Cobalt Canyons" by Bill Bruford
First Day at School - "Come Together" by the Beatles (a version recorded at practice by a band I was in a couple of years ago)
Falling in Love - "That's Life" by David Lee Roth
Fight Song - "The Real Me" by the Who (again, a version my old band recorded at practice)
Breaking Up - "Peg" by Steely Dan
Prom - "Ready or Not" by Hotwyre, the band I was in before the one I'm in now. The song is about facing your destiny and preparing for battle, so I'm thinking that only Buffy the Vampire Slayer would find it to be an appropriate prom soundtrack song.
Life is Good - "The Flat Earth" by Thomas Dolby
Mental Breakdown - "Black Magic Woman" by Santana
Driving - "Day of the Eagle" by Robin Trower
Flashback - "Predator" by my current, as yet unnamed band.
Getting Back Together - "Spectrum" by Billy Cobham
Wedding - "I Don't Remember" by Peter Gabriel
Paying the Dues - "Urges" by Thomas Dolby
The Night Before the War - "Get Stoned" by Hinder
Final Battle - "Been Caught Stealing" by Jane's Addiction
Moment of Triumph - "Synchronicity II" by The Police
Death Scene - "Welcome to the Jungle" by Guns 'n Roses
Funeral Song - "Twice As Hard" by the Black Crowes
End Credits - "Mercy Street" by Peter Gabriel
It turns out that my husband has put a lot of music in iTunes that I didn't even realize was there. I still followed Rule #6, although this is probably the first time I've ever heard the Billy Cobham or the Bill Bruford songs that came up.
