Soundtrack Meme

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!
