I've never been one for using memes in my blog. But I'm a music freak, so I thought this one would be ok to do. ...not that you'd ever want to see this movie based on the soundtrack! Thanks to Chromewave's blog.

“Good Enough” by Sarah McLachlan
Good for an understated openers, I guess.
“Over There” by The Housemartins
Way too peppy for any waking-up that I'd ever do.
First Day at School:
“Birth-Day (Love Made Real)” by Suzanne Vega
"don't touch. don't talk.....don't listen down the halls". It could fit.
Falling In Love:
“Johnny Come Home” by Fine Young Cannibals
It might work - I mean, if I'd ever fallen in love, in love with someone, ever fallen in love, in love with someone I shouldn't have fallen in love with - and who was named Johnny.
“Revenge” by Freedy Johnston & Jules Shear
The opening line? "Your drunk now. Sit on the bathtub and we'll talk". The first part might be me - not so much the second half.
“Going Back Home” by Lucinda Williams
The title is more apropos than the lyric.
“Ideas Are Like Stars” by Mary Chapin Carpenter
A good song for ending a high school career I guess. Introspective. But I never went to prom. I voted for my prom theme to be 'Cruel to be Kind'. It wasn't picked.
“Gravity” by Alison Krauss + Union Station
"I left home when I was 17". Technically, I was 18.
“Michelle” by The Beatles
If you really want me to have mental breakdown, force me to listen to "Hey Jude".
“Madman Across the Water” by Elton John
It's got a certain rhythm that I could see in a sparse civilization driving setting.
“This is Us” by Mark Knopfler & Emmylou Harris
Yeah, it can work, though it's one of my least fave songs on their disk
Getting Back Together:
“On Top” by The Killers
"the velvet sun shines on me and you". I like it.
“Only a Memory” by The Smithereens
"I search the room - but you're not there". Was I stood up??
Birth of Child:
“In My Command” by Crowded House
“I Don't Know Why You Don't Want Me” by Rosanne Cash
Shouldn't this be the 'break-up song?'
“Blasphemous Rumour” by Depeche Mode
...somehow, this works!
“Unhappiness” by Chris Isaak
It's not as sad as you'd think - even for Isaak. In real life, I swear it's going to be Vickie Sue Robinson's "Turn the Beat Around"
“The Sensual World” by Kate Bush
Decent song for scrolling credits. It'd sit through it to see who the staff accountant and catering services were.
