Life As A Soundtrack

[Swiped from Michelle, cuz I listen to music non-stop but don't have much left in me to write, what with all the work.]

Here's what you do:

1. Open your music library
2. Set settings to “Shuffle”
3. Press play
4. For each entry, type the song that's playing
5. For new entry, press the next/forward button

opening credits: “Call It a Day” — The Raconteurs
Not gonna be a comedy, is it?

waking up: “Top of the World” — Dixie Chicks

first day at school: “Friends In Low Places” — Garth Brooks
Funny. (Also, this is the only GB song I've got. Really.)

falling in love: “Where There's A Will There's A Whalebone” — Islands

breaking up: “Gumboots” — Paul Simon
“You don't feel you could love me, but I feel you could.”
Good one.

prom: “Tomorrow Tomorrow” — Elliott Smith

life's okay: “Silent Life” — Fruit Bats

mental breakdown: “Whole” — Eliza Carthy

driving: “Real Bad News” — Amie Mann
I'm a good driver, really. This meme sucks.

flashback: “She Has No Time” — Keane

getting back together: “Worn Out” — Kelly Joe Phelps

wedding: “White Shadows” — Coldplay

birth of child: “It's Good To Be In Love” — Frou Frou

final battle: “When The War Came” — The Decemberists
Nice. (If the concert hadn't been postponed till next month, we'd be seeing them live right this second.)

funeral song: “Only Son” — Liz Phair
Hm. This meme really sucks.

end credits: “Strange Fire” — Indigo Girls

And there you have it. If my life were a movie it would be dark, tragic, and wouldn't make much sense. My life would be a bad indie flick. It would be “art.” Sigh. If I had the energy, I'd make up a meme where we'd get to choose the songs ourselves. The iTunes gods are clearly hating me.
