Your life soundtrack

meme gakked from matociquala

the self-abuse version of the Life Soundtrack Meme:

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
6. Don't lie and try to pretend you're cool...

Opening Credits:
White Flag, Dido, from Life for Rent

I know you think that I shouldn't still love you,
Or tell you that.
But if I didn't say it, well I'd still have felt it
where's the sense in that?

I promise I'm not trying to make your life harder
Or return to where we were

I will go down with this ship
And I won't put my hands up and surrender
There will be no white flag above my door
I'm in love and always will be

Waking Up:
Reverie, a jazzy instrumental by Regina Carter, from Paganini, After a Dream

First Day At School:
Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite!, the Beatles, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
The celebrated Mr. K.
Performs his feat on Saturday at Bishopsgate
The Hendersons will dance and sing
As Mr. Kite flys through the ring don't be late
Messrs. K. and H. assure the public
Their production will be second to none
And of course Henry The Horse dances the waltz!

Falling In Love:
"I'm Here" from The soundtrack to the Color Purple (also instrumental, a touch sad, very pretty. and short.)

Fight Song:
"We'll be together" Sting, Nothing like the Sun

I see me with you and all the things you do
Keep turning round and round in my mind
Forget the weather we should always be together
And any other thought is unkind

To have you with me I would swim the sevens seas
To have you as my guide and my light
My love is a flame that burns in your name
We'll be together We'll be together tonight

We'll be together, yeah

I see you with me and all I want to be
Is dancing here with you in my arms
Forget the weather we should always be together
I'll always be a slave to your charms

To have you with me I would swim the seven seas
To have you as my guide and my light
My love is a flame that burns in your name
We'll be together We'll be together tonight

Breaking Up:
"Que Sera" Ace of Base, The Bridge

It's a lonely life living on my own..

They call to her from across the street
But they don't know her name
She's in the wrong place at the wrong time
Who's to blame?
She wonders how to change
the life she's living
She wonders if she'll ever get away

As far as I can see, the writing's on the wall
There's no return, we live, we learn
The game goes on and on and

Que sera
I like you but I don't
Really want to take you home
Que sera
It's a lonely life
Living on my own
Que sera
What's it gonna be, what's it gonna be?

Life is Good:
"Careless Love" , from the soundtrack of The Color Purple (very short)

Mental Breakdown:
Within You Without You, The Beatles, Sgt Pepper's Lonely Heart's Club Band

We were talking - about the space between us all
And the people - who hide themselves behind a wall of illusion
Never glimpse of truth - then it's far too late - when they pass away
We were talking - about the love we could all share - when we find it
To try our best to hold it there - with our love
With our love - We could save the world - if they only knew!

Try to realise it's all within yourself no-one else can make you change
And to see you're really only very small, and life flows on
within and without you

Carey, by Joni Mitchell, hits

Come on down to the Mermaid Cafe and I will buy you a bottle of wine
And we'll laugh and toast to nothing and smash our empty glasses down
Let's have a round for these freaks and these soldiers
A round for these friends of mine

Tusk, by Fleetwood Mac, greatest hits

Why don't you ask him if he's going to stay?
Why don't you ask him if he's going away?
Why don't you tell me what's going on?
Why don't you tell me who's on the phone?
Why don't you ask him what's going on?
Why don't you ask him who's the latest on his throne?

Don't say that you love me!
Just tell me that you want me!

Getting Back Together:
Knickerbocker Line/ Drowsy Maggie, Folk Underground, Get yer hands off me booty!
Watch her, trail her, pipe her as she got, in her high heeled boots, and her patten-leather toes!
Well, she was one of those flash girls, I soon found out in time,
And her high-heeled boots go clattering down the knickerbocker line.

On the Run, Pink Floyd, Dark side of the Moon (instrumental, mostly)

The Night Before The War:
Sjoren's Jig, Folk Underground Get yer hands off me booty! (instrumental. it's a jig. perfect, I say, for before the war.)

Final Battle:
"What is this thing called love?" Billie Holiday (maybe it's a different kind of battle than I was thinking)
what is this thing called love
this funny thing
called love
just who can solve its mystery
why should it make
a fool of me?

Moment of Triumph:
"The Microorganism", Boiled in Lead, From the Ladle to the Grave (wait, what kind of a movie is this?)
The cowslips bloom and the bluebells too
Here's advice I'll give to you
Rattle your sword before you strike
And never kiss anyone you like

Death Scene:
Reunion/Finale , The Color Purple Soundtrack (instrumental)

Funeral Song:
My heart (will always lead me back), the Color Purple Soundtrack (jazzy instrumental)

End Credits:
Nugget, Cake Fashion Nugget

This one
This one
This one

Now simple feet that flicker like fire
And burn like candles in smokey spires
Do more to turn my joy to sadness
Than somber thoughts of burning planets

I don't wanna
I don't wanna hear it
That's right
Oh no
