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!
- 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….
- 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.
- Let’s Get it Started; Black Eyed Peas – A good song to spar with rhythm and groove.
- Somebody Told Me; The Killers ~ It's confrontational and slighty edgey in its antagonism so, not a bad break-up anthem, I suppose.
- Vertigo; U2 - Now that was my high school grad in a nutshell - so drunk I was in a place called vertigo.
- 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.
- Wonderwall; Oasis - “I said maybe, you’re gonna be the one that saves me....” (or maybe not, if I'm having a mental breakdown).
- Hung Up; Madonna – “Time goes by so slowly for those who wait...” – Yeah, that about sums up traffic jams here in Seattle.
- 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.
- 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.
- Unchained Melody; Righteous Brothers – not a bad random tune to show up for a birth.
- 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.
- Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy; Tkaivovsky - Does this mean I'll live happily ever after in the Land of the Sugar Plum Fairies?
- 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.
- 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....
