I don't do these - yet, apparently now I do

The only meme that's intrigued me in it's arbitrariness, yet applicability and validity to life*

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:
"All Around the World" - Oasis
at a whopping 9:20 mins, that's quite an opening.

waking up:
"The Beauty Process" - L7
oddly appropriate, no?

first day at school:
"Guyamas Sonora" - Beirut

falling in love:
"Silver Road" - Sarah Harmer

breaking up:
"Like Pebbles on the Beach" - Paul Weller

"Home for a Rest" - Spirit of the West
as it turns out, I did dance to this at me prom.

life’s okay:
"Fleur de saison" - Emilie Simon

mental breakdown:
"I've got a Feeling" - Beatles
I can see having a mental breakdown to this song.

"No Backrub" - Bikini Kill

"Explode" - Nelly Furtado

getting back together:
"Fidelity" - Regina Spektor

"The Closing" - Silverchair
wow, that's awesome. wedding=closing. I love a good sense of humour.

birth of child:
"Walls" - Tom Petty

final battle:
"Serve the Servants" - Nirvana
having a battle to that song would be awkward, methinks.

death scene:
"I'm so Tired" - Beatles

end credits:
"All of us Kids" - Hawksley Workman


*cause, who hasn't given themselves a personal soundtrack while they're boppin' around life? Truly, admit it. You all do.
