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.

The rules:
  • Open your library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, iPod, etc.)
  • Put it on shuffle
  • Press play
  • For every question, type the song that’s playing
  • When you go to a new question, press the next button
  • Don’t lie and try to pretend you’re cool...
Opening Credits:
“Good Enough” by Sarah McLachlan
Good for an understated openers, I guess.

Waking Up:
“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.

Fight Song:
“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.

Breaking Up:
“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.

Mental Breakdown:
“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

Final Battle:
“I Don't Know Why You Don't Want Me” by Rosanne Cash
Shouldn't this be the 'break-up song?'

Death Scene:
“Blasphemous Rumour” by Depeche Mode
...somehow, this works!

Funeral Song:
“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"

End Credits:
“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.
