Well, I usually don't go for those meme things all that often, but this one struck my interest, since I love music. I'm a little doubtful at how well it will describe my life, since most of the music on my itunes/ipod consists of varying styles of metal. But we'll see how it goes. Heck, if it sucks too much, I'll just delete it, and you will never read these words.
WHAT WOULD THE SOUNDTRACK TO YOUR LIFE BE?
(taken originally after surfing to Annie's blog, from Sara's blog.
This is how it's done:
1. Open your music library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, iPod, etc)
2. Put it on shuffle
3. Press play
4. For every prompt that follows, type the song that's playing
5. When you go to a new prompt, press the next button (I skipped one song entitled track 10, for obvious reasons)
Voila! The Soundtrack to your Life.
Let's try it!
Opening Credits: Warheart by Children of Bodom (Yeah, I'm a fighter alright...)
Waking Up: Elizabeth: Fall From Grace by Kamelot (Well, I do stumble and fall out of bed I guess)
First Day at School: Holiday for Strings by Spike Jones & His City Slickers (Ha! Some holiday...)
Falling in Love: Draw Me by Sonata Arctica (Oh geez, this isn't good. It's a sad song about failed love. Yikes.)
Fight Song: Beyond the Ice by Blind Guardian (An instrumental song. Hmm. Well, that's a much more fitting and peaceful description of me than a Children of Bodom song)
Breaking Up: Miracles by Dark Moor (You call that a miracle?)
Prom: Painful Mind Contradiction by Crimson Moonlight (Hmm, well, I never went to prom, so I guess that's a contradiction. This is the "Christian" band that Paige, Eddie, Tim, and Matt saw at the Cornerstone thingy...with the guy covered in blood. His voice sounds like Gollum from Lord of the Rings. Weird stuff.)
Life: On the Coldest Winter Night by Kamelot (Brrrrr!)
Career: Artifacts of the Black Rain by In Flames (I have no idea what this song is about. Just like I have no idea what I'll do with my career. Ooooh, saved that one.)
Mental Breakdown: Hero in a Dream by Ensiferum (What kind of a person do they think I am? Mental breakdown? Seriously? That's just silly-I like cheeseooogaboogarawaRRGGHHH!!!)
Driving: Taken by Pagan's Mind (This would have been good for the Falling in Love prompt)
Flashback: The Real You by Vanishing Point (So, am I flashing back to see the real me, or before I was the real me, or...owww, my head hurts)
Getting Back Together: I Like Marijuana by Mojo Nixon & the Toadliquors (Wow, I really have nothing to add. *backs away nervously*)
Wedding: Dreamspace by Stratovarius (Well, that would be like a dream come true...)
Birth of Child: Planet Hell by Nightwish (Hey! I like kids!...That's pretty funny though)
Midlife Crisis: Can't Stand Losing You by The Police (I can't stand losing my youth either. Waaah.)
Final Battle: Solitude Within by Evergrey (Oh ho! We're getting deep here. My final battle will be one of inner turmoil and isolation. At least I have something to look forward to now...*shakes head*)
Death Scene: Beneath These Waves by Demons and Wizards (No! I don't want to go that way!)
Funeral Song: Devil and the Deep Dark Ocean by Nightwish (Uhhh, this isn't getting better guys!!!)
End Credits: Cinco De Mayo by Reverend Horton Heat (What the heck? You guys are celebrating now that I'm gone? Sheesh. Thanks a lot.)
Final Thoughts: Hmm. A few funny ones. None of my favorite songs got picked at all though. I wouldn't think to play any of the songs that were chosen when I pick up my ipod for a quick listen at the gym. Of course, I have about 1500 songs, so I'm bound to get a few stinkers here and there.
No Boston, no Dragonforce, no Dream Theater, no Edguy, no Fleetwood Mac, no Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass, no Iron Maiden, no Metallica, no Queen, only one Sonata Arctica, man. itunes, you've failed me again.
