Soundtrack Moi

I rarely if ever do these meme things but the travel city one was tempting and so was this.

I'm a ranter, not a memer. Plus, I never play music. I blog silently, but it was refreshing to do this and blog along to music.

Anyways, I was tagged by Jungle Mama ~ she thought I might have an interesting and eclectic playlist - I actually don't. Plus I saw it on Cassie's and Becca's sites, and caught Lynn's tune list too. So I decided to give this a try, and what do ya know? It was hilarious, and creepy accurate and lots of fun.

Give it a try. Tag team - I declare Nat, Alison and Jeri it. and anyone/everyone else who wants to play along.

I like shuffle. Shuffle is good.

If your life were a film, 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.
7. When you're finished, tag some other people to do it!


Opening Credits
  • Big Time; Electrokingdom/Peter Gabriel Remix ~ I’m on my way I’m making it....Big Time!" It could be a theme song or like an opening credits song or something….

Waking Up
  • Isaac; Madonna ~This tune is an eclectic mix of cello plucking, Hebrew chanting and dance remix, The chanting reminds me of a bit of an Arabic call to prayer so it's the perfect wake-up call I guess. And it's Madonna's tribute to Isaac Luria, a Kabbalist I just referenced on my other blog. Wild.

First Day at School

  • Boulevard of Broken Dreams – Green Day ~"I walk a lonely road…" Yup. That pretty much summed up my first day of school and almost every day thereafter.

Falling in Love
  • Dear God; Sarah MacLachlan. A song of prayer is a good as any for falling in love, I guess.

Fight Song
  • Let’s Get it Started; Black Eyed Peas – A good song to spar with rhythm and groove.

Breaking Up

  • Somebody Told Me; The Killers ~ It's confrontational and slighty edgey in its antagonism so, not a bad break-up anthem, I suppose.

Prom

  • Vertigo; U2 - Now that was my high school grad in a nutshell - so drunk I was in a place called vertigo.

Making Babies

  • Hark the Herald Angels Sing – OK so it’s kind of sacrilegious to have a sacred Xmas tune play while making babies but then again…..this is supposed to be a lovemaking song…bright twinkling stars, heralding trumpets and singing angels are all part of the package. And let’s face it; Jesus as the quintessential miraculous birth baby - it fits.

Mental Breakdown

  • Wonderwall; Oasis - “I said maybe, you’re gonna be the one that saves me....” (or maybe not, if I'm having a mental breakdown).

Driving

  • Hung Up; Madonna – “Time goes by so slowly for those who wait...” – Yeah, that about sums up traffic jams here in Seattle.

Flashback

  • Don’t You Forget About Me; Simple Minds….My absolute all-time, fave flashback song. I. Heart. Jim. Kerr!

Getting Back
Together
  • Hope Has a Place; Enya - Sweet, melodic, haunting and hopeful.

Wedding

  • White Room; Eric Clapton - OK, that's funny. Our holy-80s wedding was a total white room - white mermaid gown, white tux for hubby, white flowers, white everything.... even our wedding song was Nights in White Satin.
Birth of Child
  • Unchained Melody; Righteous Brothers – not a bad random tune to show up for a birth.

Final Battle

  • Echo Taps; USAF Heritage of America Band – I kid you not, this is the next song that came up on my shuffle list. I had it saved because I blogged about Remembrance and Veteran's Days last November.

Death Scene

  • Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy; Tkaivovsky - Does this mean I'll live happily ever after in the Land of the Sugar Plum Fairies?

Funeral Song

  • I Can See Clearly Now; Jimmy Cliff - How cool is this? My kids and I have a pact that when the day comes, this is one of the mandatory songs that must play at my funeral. This is turning out to be a surreal exercise.

End Credits

  • Candle in the Wind; Elton John - "And it seems to me, she lived her life like a candle in the wind..." Well I haven't really lived my life that way at all, but like, whatever - I'm surprised more songs weren't totally wonky like this....

How'd you know I was having trouble coming up with a blog post topic for the day? :) Kind of fun.

Thotman said...

This was a fun read...I would certainly love to hear that jimmy cliff rendition... I think blogging is a lot of fun, especially when I end up reading ideas like these..

Natalie said...

Mmmmk... I'll do it.
But not tonight.
I'm a bwitch on a tear 'cause I had to go back to the dreaded mall to get S' new glasses. (They look faboo, btw, so, stop by and call her "four-eyes" or somethin' nice like that...lol)
It wasn't the glasses thing that got me rollin'... it was the kids, now with totally stretched out ears from me yankin' on 'em and sayin', "CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW?!?"
Hump day in the middle of Spring Break: can you say "I needa Valium"?
Lawds!
Manana y mi musica, si, Senora!
Hasta manana.
Mil Besos.

*bounce bounce bounce*

I just GOTTA do this! My post for today is cheezy. Might have to sustitute it!

You're selections were AWESOME!! I'll have to think about mine and come up with something snappy.

Natalie said...

I forgot to comment about the selections. Okay, here goes:
The Death Scene: that's kind of cool in that it's a gentle dance... out.
Nights in White Satin? Never reaching the end? Oy.
Flashback: wow, that's a brat pack moment if ever...
Makin' Babie: hahahahahaha! That's almost orgasmically funny.
Waking Up: that is just wild... and cool.
:)
Okay... I'm off to do my own.
Cheers, you rebel!

Great list!!!

VENTL8R said...

Tomorrow's photo will be good, so be sure to stop back. I'll post my list next week, though my "Making Babies" tune was. BRILLIANT! I'll keep you in suspense.... ;-)

And your Ascot comment would have been good, along with the Kentucky Derby.

Simply Hollie said...

Hm I wonder what my play list might be! I will have to try it one day real soon and see!

manda said...

You *do* have a cool & eclectic playlist. I love the sugarplum fairies.

VENTL8R said...

Ok, photo for the caption is up. Think about it good and hard this weekend. I want something STELLAR from you!!! ;-)

VENTL8R said...

See! I told you it would be a good one!

KC said...

I so have to try this one myself!!!

BTW... I had to make my Space semi-private for the time being since I have an idiot stalking me and calling me racist. So if you want to access my space - I will need to give you access, unless you are already part of my stamp collection.

BTW... I bought a house!!! Not the one I emailed you but one that looks just like it and for the same price!! I am so excitted... I get possession June 11th - got over the worst.. now I sit and wait for the paper work to be legalized. What a process!! I can't imagine what house hunting is like the West coast... oye!

Take care... chat soon!
Ciao bella,
KC
