Soundtrack to My Life?
This music meme thing may turn out to be some kind of addiction.
IF YOUR LIFE WERE A MOVIE, WHAT WOULD THE SOUNDTRACK BE?
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...
Mine started promisingly... then (with a few precious exceptions) turned out to be a bit crap. And mindnumbingly boring.
"Hold Me", by Savage Garden
-- Not the biggest fan of Savage Garden, but I'd say this is a pretty good one for opening credits... just edit it down to the chorus a la One Tree Hill.
"La Fabbrica di Plastica", by Gianluca Grignani
FIRST DAY AT SCHOOL
"Miss Mary", by Zucchero
FALLING IN LOVE
"Sweet Widow", by Spin Doctors
"Love Her Madly", by the Doors

LIFE IS GOOD

GETTING BACK TOGETHER
"I'm a Fool to Do Your Dirty Work", by Steely Dan
"Rock the Casbah", by the Clash
-- Wicked! I'm absolutely going to have this played at my wedding. And somehow everytime I hear this I remember Sacha in the club in Italy (Florence, I do believe) and his "Good song?? It's Rock the F*CKING Casbah!!" Now all I need to do is... marry a Jew. How hard can that be? Haha.
PAYING THE DUES
"Sweet Home Alabama (Live at Home in a Trailer)", the freestyling version by Eminem & Mekhi Pheiffer in 8 Mile.
-- This meme is revealing all the strange crap I have amassed over the years.
THE NIGHT BEFORE THE WAR
