Soundtrack to My Life.

Because after a day filled with cricket, humourous kidlet comments ("Look at MY big balls!" - Preschooler, playing with playdough) and horribly humid weather, a meme is about all I can be bothered writing right about now.

If your life was 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
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:
Hello - Evanescence. (Well, that's appropriate.)

Waking Up:
Kissing You - Des'ree. (Am straight the point, no?)

First Day At School:
Gravity - John Mayer.

Falling In Love:
Always - Bon Jovi. (I love this song!)

Fight Song:
Unsaid - The Fray. (That'll work.)

Breaking Up:
Silence - Sarah McLachlan/Delirious.

11am - Incubus. (Who has a prom at 11am?)

Mr Brightside - The Killers.

Making babies:
Closer - Better Than Ezra. (Oh, how perfect is this?)

Roads - Portishead.

Perfect Memory - Remy Zero.

Until I Wake up - Dishwalla.

Getting back together:
Fade Into You - Mazzy Star.

Who Makes You Feel? - Dido. (Not the ideal ballad.)

Birth of
Starry Eyed Surprise - Paul Oakenfold. (A party song!)

Final Battle:
City Hall - The Fray. (Is this where the battle takes place?)

Death Scene:
Can't Let It Go - Goo Goo Dolls. (I'm clinging to life, fwee!)

Away From the Sun - 3 Doors Down. (Lovely!)

Anything - Mae. (I guess it didn't care what my credits were.)

I'm tagging anyone who is feeling a bit lack-lustre towards blogging today. You're it!

I had forgotten about Better Than Ezra. I think I have a cd of theirs around here somewhere.

iPod shuffle gets some strange combinations for me. I have a ballet workout CD recorded so that I can do some barre work in my hotel room when I travel, so sometimes I'll get a "grand allegro" pattern in between Christina Aguilera and a Broadway tune.
