Soundtrack To Your Life Meme

I vaguely remember doing this old meme back on my old blog.  I wish I had it to compare to now, frankly I feel the brief flirtation I had with popular music back then would be quite a contrast.


IF YOUR LIFE WAS A MOVIE, WHAT WOULD THE SOUNDTRACK BE? 

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...

Opening Credits:  Kashmir by Led Zeppelin
Director: "Ohhhh fuuuuck ..."
Me: "So.... My opening credits will run for an epic 7 minutes and 37 seconds?  Perhaps we could go with a montage of my childhood as visualized by Timothy Leary. LOL...."
Director: "Let's go with that for now..." [Pops a pill of some description]

Waking Up:  Heroes by David Bowie
Do we honestly need to put music to this part of my day?  Really?  I mean, I'm not complaining about the pick but man I don't even know what direction this film is going in anymore.

First Day At School:  A Song For The Dead by Queens Of The Stone Age
I can't remember my first day at school, but I'm sure this is a little too ... uhh ... something for that whole experience. 

Falling In Love:  Bohemian Like You by The Dandy Warhols
I forgot I had this song in my iTunes library.  It's kind of apt for the whole falling in love scene though.

Fight Song:  Cubicles by My Chemical Romance
WTF kind of fight am I having here?  Am I losing because I'm too reminiscent to actually fight?  Or am I fighting the system, or the urge to kill myself 'cos the person in the next cubicle has actually moved on and made something of themselves.  Wait, I bet I'm fighting the water cooler... that's totally it.

Breaking Up:  The Last Kiss by AFI
Hang on... so the Fight Song was leading up to the breakup?  Well then I was having an office romance and being all bitter about my loved one getting promoted or a better job?  Whoa, I am such a bitch!  Oh... so this song... well, let's just say I must not have taken the break up well.

Prom:  It's Not A Fashion Statement, It's A Death Wish by My Chemical Romance
I obviously need to delete some of this music from my playlist....  Well I thought I had moved on and got a job, but apparently I still have to go through the agony of attending prom.  I'm still in a bad place, I can only guess that I'm the angry ex playing in the prom band and ruining the night for everyone.  Or, I've come back from the dead to wreak zombie havoc at prom.  I think the second option would really be a great direction for the film to go in.

Life Is Good:  When Did Your Heart Go Missing by Rooney
Aww, see things are looking up.  The new zombie friends I errr 'made' at prom are all about having fun and shopping at Ed Hardy man.  When did your heart go missing?  When we ate it dawg!  It's t-shirt time!  Fuck I can't believe I just went there - douchebag zombies.  What next?  Disclaimer - I actually like this song, it just seems so out of place right now...

Mental Breakdown:  Judas by Lady Gaga
Aha.... fuck.  Busted.  Yeah I got me some Lady Gaga.  I'm really not sure how this would relate to me having a mental breakdown, but I'm thinking of writing a dance number in here.  Zombies dancing to this would so work.

Driving:  Ceremony by New Order
I was really excited to see what would pop up here.  And kind of let down.  It's not that I hate this song but now I can only visualize myself driving in that early dawn time just before the sun rises and the sky is all grey and some of my victims are 'slumbering' in the back seat.

Flashback:   It's All Over Now Baby Blue by Hole
Why is Hole in my iTunes?  WHY IS THIS?  Ahh, it's on a soundtrack I own.  Fair enough.  [Deletes]

Getting Back Together:  I Want You To by Weezer
LOL so perfect, too perfect.  I had just resolved myself that my ex was lost in a killing spree at prom. 

Wedding:  Dance Commander by Electric Six
Oh sweet Jesus.

Paying The Dues:  I Just Shot John Lennon by The Cranberries
Oh this just gets worse and worse, doesn't it?  Now I've got zombie Chapman to deal with.

The Night Before The War:  Ball & Biscuit by The White Stripes
God knows who I've decided to go to war against, but I'm hoping it's more of a Battle of the Bands or a Dance Off affair, because things haven't been going well since Chapman came on board.

Final Battle:  Moves Like Jagger by Maroon 5
It was totally a dance off, cue Gaga Zombie dance attack.

Moment Of Triumph:  Sweet Child O Mine by Guns n Roses
After executing a flawless final dance move, the camera switches to slow motion as my dance crew runs to congratulate me ...

Death Scene:  Human by The Killers
... and I am ruthlessly decapitated by an ill placed high five.  This song works really well with the whole dance off theme we had going on there.  Well done shuffle button.

Funeral Song: Walking In My Shoes by Depeche Mode
Damn, this movie is long... and badly written.  Seriously, there doesn't seem to be any cohesive direction at all.  By the way, no bastard will get away with touching my shoes.  Ever.  Just saying.

End Credits Roll:  Spiralling by Keane
Finally it's over, and probably with the most ill placed song ever judging by the opening lyrics: "I'm waiting for my moment to come, I'm waiting for the movie to begin".  Oh god no ...
