The Soundtrack of my Life

Maurizio recently tagged me in a recent post on his blog. We’re playing a little game called If My Life Was a Movie, What Would the Soundtrack Be?

To paraphrase another blogger, you put your iPod on shuffle and write the name of each song that comes up in sequence against a specific list of scenes in your life – also in sequence.  So, using my spankin’ new iPod, here’s what I came up with:

Opening credits   Cheating on You – Franz Ferdinand

First day of school   I Am Weary (Let Me Rest) – The Cox Family

Falling in love   Hopelessly Devoted to Them – The Housemartins

Prom/GradYour Ex-Lover is Dead – Stars  

Mental breakdown   Twist My Arm – The Tragically Hip

Flashbacks   Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band – The Beatles

Getting back togetherBonny Portmore – Loreena McKennitt  

Wedding scene   He Used to Cut the Grass – Frank Zappa

Final battle   Disco Boy – Frank Zappa

Death scene   Old Brown’s Daughter – Great Big Sea

Funeral scene   Ecclesiastes: Free My Heart – Me’Shell Ndegéocello

End credits   Over on Fourth Street – Pat Metheny

FinaleLovin’ U – Alicia Keys  

Well, some of those are interesting – others are just plain weird.   Over to you, Mr. Anderson. Would you care to play?

One thought on “The Soundtrack of my Life

  1. Dear DearloveI would love to take this challenge right now, because I am supposed to be reading Bronte’s “Villette” (YAWN), and I am looking for fun things to do to distract me:Opening credits:coney Island – Death Cab for CutieFirst Day of school:Under Control – The StrokesFalling in love:The big Fight – The StarsProm/ Grad:On a Slow Night – MetricMental Breakdown:I wanna fuck you – Akon feat. Snoop DoggFlashbacks:Bron-Y-Aur Stomp – Led ZepplinGetting Back Together:Pass That Dutch – Missy ElliotWedding Scene:Mama Said KNock you Out – LL Cool JFinal Battle:Hello Dolly – Louis ArmstrongDeath Scene:The Dark of the Matinee – Franz FerdinandFuneral SceneThrough the Glow – Laura ViersEnd Credits:La Nina de Peurto Oscura – Paco de Lucia (From the Life Aquatic Soundtrack)Finale:Dedicated to the One I love – The Mamas and the PapasWell that was kind of fun! … Some of them are funny and kind of ridiculous (see: Wedding scene feat LL Cool J …I hope LL Cool J is never played at my wedding) however, overall this was a fun way to avoid homework, thank you for the suggestion! Now maybe I will go back to reading .. or …. maybe I will check out facebook for 20 or so minutesCheers!Lindsay
