What would a New Year be without a silly meme to blog about? Ok, so if your life was a movie, what would the soundtrack be? (Got the idea from Trixy's blog.)
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
Here's mine (ok, I am the album-art-crazy kind of iPod person, you don't have to include that if you are lazy, just do text):
Everlasting Love by U2, All I Want Is You (Single)
This is a bizarre cover of Robert Knight's Everlasting Love. Most have heard the recent version sung by Jamie Cullum. "Open up your eyes/ Then you'll realize/ Here I said was my/ Everlasting love"
Can U Handle it by Usher, Confessions (Special Edition)
Nothing like some love groove to wake up to, I suppose.
First Day At School:
Brand New Girlfriend by Steve Holy, Brand New Girlfriend
Ok, I don't know how this kitschy country song got into my iPod, but seems like a fun song to be playing while I go to the first day of school. Except my first day of school was at a BOY'S school.
Falling In Love:
The Engadiner Suite - Summer by Ahn Trio, Ahn Trio: Groovebox
Wah, so cheem. Er, some expert got say that this piece was inspired by the magnificent Engadine valley in Switzerland: St. Moritz, Silvaplana, Sils Maria, and Maloja at an altitude of 2000 meters - the changes of color of the mountains through the year were a constant source of inspiration.
Sweetest Goodbye by Maroon 5, Songs About Jane
Old School by Bran Van 3000, Glee
"Cupid had an arrow/ For the pharaoh/ So he shot."
Interlude: Living by India.Arie, Testimony, Vol. 1: Life & Relationship
Short but cool piece by the soulful India.Arie. "In the face of the unexpected/ You never know what's gonna happen tomorrow.../ When I wanna live/ I wanna live/ I wanna live"
Will You Remember Me by Corrinne May, Fly Away
"So I'll leave this kiss wet on your face/ My first born son/ And pray the wind won't ever blow it dry"
I'd Love You by Sonya Kitchell, Words Came Back to Me
"Oh, I feel like I'm a puppet tinkling on a string/ And I hate the way that you can make me do anything"
Playground Do Brasil by Imada, Hotel Costes 4
Chillin' music to drive to.
Autumn Tactics (Thrillseekers Mix) by Chicane, Guy Ornadel Slinky (Disc 2)
Getting Back Together:
This Is How We Bite The Dust by Q-Unit, Greatest Hits
Mash-ups are fun, and Q-Unit does Queen and G-Unit so good in this album.
Mama by Spice Girls, Spice
Who doesn't think of Mama at one's wedding, right? No, I do not know how I got Spice Girls in my iPod. It's a mystery, I tell ya.
Birth of Child:
Jump (For My Love) by Girls Aloud, OST Love Actually
Jump. That was kinda the feeling when Faith was born.
Stoned Is The Way Of The Walkby Cypress Hill, Cypress Hill
Bad-ass fightin' music right here. "I’ll smack ya ass like my name was Al Pacino"
Don't Want You Back by Ellie Campbell, Funky Divas 1
Not sure I want an angry love song at my death scene, haha!
If I Ain't Got You by Alicia Keys, Unplugged
You said it, Alicia. "And some people want it all / But i dont want nothing at all/ If it ain't you baby/ If i ain't got you baby"
Orange Wedge by The Chemical Brothers, Surrender
Cool way to end the movie, I reckon.
