Random Soundtrack

Here's a fun new game. Open your electronic music library (from your iPod, WinAmp, Media Player or whatever), put it on shuffle, then play. Each successive random song from your library goes to the next question or event on the list. Here's my totally random list:

Opening Credits: "(You're The) Devil in Disguise" by Elvis (Great beginning! lol)

Waking Up: "Don't Leave Me This Way" by Thelma Houston (interesting mental pictures)

1st Day at School: "Strawberry Letter 23" by the Brothers Johnson (kind of strange)

Falling in Love: "Oceans" by Pearl Jam ("hold onto the thread")

Fight Song: "Hair of the Dog" Guns N Roses version (perfect!)

Breaking Up: "You Dropped A Bomb On Me" by The Gap Band (heh)

Prom: "Under the Milky Way" by The Church (kind of cool)

Life: "Please Don't Go" by KC and the Sunshine Band (weird)

Mental Breakdown: "Ridin'" by Chamillionaire (hilarious!)

Driving: "What's Love Got To Do With It?" by Tina Turner (potentially a dangerous driving song, lol)

Flashback: "Thank You" by Dido (kind of sweet)

Getting Back Together: "Wasted On The Way" by Crosby, Stills & Nash ("So much time to make up, everywhere you turn, time we have wasted on the way")

Wedding: "Nice To Be You" by Gallery (that's a good wedding song)

Love Scene: "Saved By Zero" by The Fixx (quirky)

Birth of Child: "Naughty Girl" by Beyonce (not a good fit at all)

Final Battle: "Love Machine" by The Miracles (make love not war, lol)

Death Scene: "Calling Doctor Love" by KISS (well, that's an odd death scene song)

Funeral Song: "Better Be Good To Me" by Tina Turner (that is WAY off for a funeral)

End Credits: "Our Lips Are Sealed" by the GoGos (kind of anticlimactic)

Some of that worked out nice, and some didn't. But I think Quentin Tarantino and I could write a funny script around it. ;-)

No access to my iPod right now. I'll let you know how mine come up when I have it handy. Love the memes, though. Keep 'em coming.

lol. That looks fun. I'll do it, but it could be a few days before I get to it.

Here we go:

Opening Credits: Move the City by The Wedding

Waking Up: The Space Between All Things by Idlewild

1st Day at School: Back in the USSR by The Beatles (lots of Beatles on my iPod)

Falling in Love: Lovely Rita Meter Maid by The Beatles (perfect)

Fight Song: Inner Logic by Bad Religion (...decorated warriors drill harmless kids on pavement
simulating tyranny under red alert...)

Breaking Up: Sympathy for the Devil by The Rolling Stones

Prom: Disneyland by Five for Fighting (what teen wouldn't want to have their prom at Disneyland?)

Life: Call in Sick by MXPX (I've been tempted many times, lol)

Mental Breakdown: Welcome Home by Idlewild (welcome to the sanitarium?)

Driving: I Got To Find My Baby by the Beatles (Live at the BBC) (good reason for a drive)

Flashback: Stars by LaRue (reminds me of a magic mushrooms experience back in the day)

Getting Back Together: Goodnight Saigon by Billy Joel (coming home from Nam?)

Wedding: Geek Stink Breath by Green Day (the only one who would have me? yuck!)

Love Scene: You Can't Do That by The Beatles

Birth of Child: Rock and Roll Dreams Come True by Meatloaf (sure glad this wasn't Geek Stink Breath, lol)

Final Battle: The Point of No Return by Andrew Lloyd Weber (from The Phantom of the Opera)

Death Scene: Pure and Easy by The Who (one of my all time faves; what a "note" to go out on)

Funeral Song: Going Up To The Country by Country Joe and the Fish (well, ok)

End Credits: Hymn 43 by Jethro Tull

Taken randomly from an iPod with over 1600 songs on it. Of course, there are more Beatles songs than anything else, which is as it should be. ;-)

Thanks, Rae Ann - that was fun!

dh, you have a extensive music library. A bunch of those songs I'm not sure I've ever heard. Thank *you*!
