If Your Life Was A Film, What Would The Soundtrack Be?

Now, I don’t often indulge in these new facebook self-indulgent quizzes, but this one struck me as being quite a lot of fun to do, so here goes. This will prove once and for all that I have awful taste in music

“So, here’s how it works:
1. Open your library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, iPod, etc.).
2. Put it on shuffle.
3. Press play.
4. For every question, type the song that’s playing.
5. When you go to a new question, press the next button.”

Just in case you didn’t know anything about this, the bit in quotes above is all you need to know, in case you want to do it yourself and pass on the fun!

Opening Credits
Ebony Eyes by Stevie Wonder – quite a fun song to start, but I don’t have black eyes and I’m not a girl…still, let’s go with it

Waking Up
Stick To The Status Quo from High School Musical. This is going to be a gay movie.

First Day At School
Keep On by Will Young. Told you it’d be gay.

Falling In Love
Don’t Panic by Coldplay. Originally it was Children, Children from Bat Boy, but that has WAY too many connotations for my falling in love song.

Fight Song
Fall To Pieces by Razorlight. Not a bad song to fight to.

Breaking Up
Don’t Cry Baby by Madeleine Peyroux. So far these seem to be fitting quite well.

One Angry Dwarf and 200 Solemn Faces by Ben Folds Five. I was a bit of an angry outsider kid, even at my prom. Well my first one. I rocked at the second one. At least, I thought I did.

I Imagine You’re Upset from Bat Boy. Well, if that’s all I’m thinking when I look back on my life, it will have been a sad life. A gay one, but a sad one as well.

Mental Breakdown
Nil by The Cardigans. Have only just listened to it, but it’s moody and instrumental; a good song to have a mental breakdown to, if you have to, I suppose.

Not Coming Home by Maroon 5. I’m just going to keep on driving…

Just Friends by Gavin DeGraw

My Love by Justin Timberlake. My extremely gay wedding will apparently be accompanied by a wannabe black man. Well, I suppose each to his own. It would probably have been my partner’s choice, if I’m honest – I can think of better wedding songs.

Birth Of Child
Family from Dreamgirls. This really seems to be falling into place. My iTunes seems to fit the movie of my life. Apart from the whole paedophilia thing. That isn’t my life. Honest. Don’t trust the Arts Centre Staff, they don’t know anything about me!

Final Battle
Batti, Batti, O Bel Masetto from Mozart’s Don Giovanni – I can see my battle scene being in slow motion. But even this song’s title is gay.

Death Scene
For Once In My Life by Michael Bublé. That’s not funny.

Funeral Song
And I’m Telling You I’m Not Going from Dreamgirls. I’m going to stay and haunt you all, bastards!

End Credits
Goodbye Until Tomorrow/I Could Never Rescue You from The Last Five Years

Well, it’s all over and that fit scarily into it all. They all seem reasonably relevant for the events, I suppose! As much fun as this has been, and I’m sure you’ll agree, I’m off to bed! Night everyone! Come see my movie.

  1. Greenday – Sassafras Roots (hate the band, hate the song)
    Nitin Sawhney – Bahaar

    Audioslave – Exploder (not much of a romantic)
    James Brown – Hot Pants (not a fighting toon but it took about five skips to get even that good)
    WA Mozart – Papagena Papagena Papagena
    Counting Crows – New Frontier (teen movies ahoy!)
    A Perfect Circle – The Nurse Who Loved Me
    Vicki Anderson – If You Don’t Give Me What I Want (I Gonna Get It Some Other Place)
    Ramsey Lewis – Hang on Sloopy
    Get Cape Wear Cape Fly – The Lighthousekeeper
    Radiohead – Planet Telex
    The Beastie Boys – Lighten Up
    Rage Against the Machine – Calm Like a Bomb (big ass final battle!)
    Radiohead – Paranoid Android (I have alot ALOT of Radiohead)
    Jeff Buckley – Twelfth of Never (keep singin’, Jeff)
    Radiohead – Let Down (my all time favourite song, as it happens)

    Out 4515 songs in my iTunes library, three come out as Radiohead. Nice.
