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?
