Harriet's Music Meme

Alrighty, I read so I got tagged and it does seem like an interesting sort of expose so here it is. Bear in mind, though, that I don't have a whole lot *in* my iTunes yet so there is a significant "skew" factor here.

IF YOUR LIFE WAS A MOVIE, WHAT WOULD YOUR SOUNDTRACK BE?
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
6. Don't lie and try to pretend you're cool.

Opening Credits: Kingston Trio: The Tijuana Jail -- Oh dear, guess I'm not getting off to a good start here, huh?

First Day At School: Mighty, Mighty Bosstones: 1-2-8 -- "They did something which meant something and that got them some attention..."

Falling In Love: Peter Gallagher from the New cast recording of Guys and Dolls: Luck Be a Lady -- Hmph.

Breaking Up: Chicago Soundtrack: Billy Flynn -- I suppose one might need an attorney when breaking up, even in high school these days.

Prom: West Side Story OBC recording: Tonight "Today, the minutes seem like hours, the hours go so slowly and still the sky is light..."

Life's OK: Cassandra Wilson: Solomon Sang "And when he stood up in the temple, Solomon sang." A beautiful song from a stunning album.

Mental Breakdown: Scully's Vision of Mulder from episode 8x14 This is Not Happening, Mark Snow, composer. Very, very appropriate.

Driving: Ella Fitzgerald: Our Love is Here To Stay... ok, nope, except that I do love driving and don't really see that changing.

Flashback: The Proclaimers: What Makes You Cry -- I can buy that one.

Getting Back Together: Mighty, Mighty Bosstones: You Gotta Go! -- ROTFL!!! "... you lost my cat and broke my TV! " You really have to hear this one (YouTube video on the link above), if only to appreciate the incredible inappropriateness of it - that and it's a very funny song worth listening to.

Wedding: Nick Cave: Red Right Hand -- That would certainly have made an odd sermon... "You're just a microscopic cog in his catastrophic plan, designed and directed by his red right hand."

Birth of Child: 3 Doors Down: Loser -- Well, Katie being born did rather make me feel inadequate to the task of being a parent...

Final Battle: Heather Dale: Tarnished Silver Pretty song. More of an "after the battle" kind of thing though.

Death Scene: Wicked OBC recording: Dear Old Shiz -- Note to self: avoid falling houses

Funeral Song: The Proclaimers: The Light -- Actually, not half inappropriate.

End Credits: Mighty, Mighty Bosstones: Riot on Broad Street -- "Another ruthless battle in a useless holy war. Handed down discrepancies and tensions that will never ease." Doesn't say much for what I accomplished by death, does it?

Alllllllrighty then. Guess the makers of this movie will be taking some significant creative license...

Tag, you're it!

I love Solomon Sang. Cassandra Wilson has an amazing voice. And the X-files track is hilarious for that slot.
