I got this from Michaele’s blog. It’s neat but I’m kind of worried about what type of shuffle I’ll generate. Oh well. If I knit in circles, can my musical life be much worse?
If your life were a soundtrack, what would the music be?
Here’s how it works:
1. open your library (iTunes, winamp, media player, iPod)
2. put it on shuffle
3. press play
4. for every section, type the song that’s playing
5. next section — press the next button
6. don’t lie and try to pretend you’re cool
Opening Credits: “Dancing Queen” – ABBA. (When I was 16 I wanted this to be my CB “handle” but I left it as “Devil Woman”. )
Waking Up: “I Just Wanna Be Mad” – Terri Clark
First Day at School: “Ship of Fools” – Erasure (Kind of fitting for a bunch of screaming 5 year-olds.)
Falling in Love: “Because of You” – Reba McEntire & Kelly Clarkson
Breaking Up: “Without You” – Dixie Chicks (One break-up song that still rings in my head is “I’m Not In Love” by 10cc. Oh, so happy I’m not back in my teens!)
Prom: “Hole in the River” – Crowded House (I didn’t go to the prom. Hmmmm.)
Life’s Okay: “From Time to Time” – Rascal Flats
Mental Breakdown: “Want Me Too” – Sarah Ayers Band
Driving: “When You Love Someone Like That” – Reba McEntire & LeAnn Rimes
Flashback: “Returning” – George Winston
Getting Back Together: “Don’t Dream It’s Over” – Crowded House
Wedding: “In This Life” – Colin Raye (I was kinda hoping my wedding song would come up for this but this is a lot better than if “Don’t Fear the Reaper” came up!)
Birth of Child: “Voice Inside My Head” – Dixie Chicks (Not having a child, this one is pretty good.)
Final Battle: “Bitter End” – Dixie Chicks
Death Scene: “No One Is To Blame” – Howard Jones
End Credits: “When I Call Your Name” – Vince Gill (Pretty and sad.)
This was fun, even with only 343 songs in my iTunes, and I listened to a few of them all the way thru.
Now it’s YOUR turn!
