Ever wondered what the playlist/soundtrack for “Your Life: The Movie” would sound like? Of course, you have! Me too. So I declare today Random Fun Day on The Moon and we’re going to play The iTunes Shuffle Game!
Those of you who have played before know the fun we’re about to get into. Those of you who haven’t, get ready for some fun.
How To Play: Grab a pen and paper and write down #’s 1 through 18. Open your iTunes to “Music” so your entire library is displayed. Click the Shuffle button. Click Play. Now WITHOUT SKIPPING ANY SONGS, write down the first 18 that play. Once you have the list of 18 songs, label them as follows:
Song #1: Opening Credits
Song #2: Waking Up
Song #3: 1st Day of School
Song #4: Falling In Love
Song #5: Fight Song
Song #6: Breaking Up
Song #7: Prom
Song #8: Life
Song #9: Mental Breakdown
Song #10: Driving
Song #11: Flashback
Song #12: Getting Back Together
Song #13: Wedding
Song #14: Birth of Child
Song #15: Final Battle
Song #16: Death Scene
Song #17: Funeral Scene
Song #18: End credits
Now remember: DON’T CHEAT! NO SKIPPING SONGS! That way when you’re done you’ll have laughed out loud, squeed, scratched your head, rolled your eyes, facepalmed more than once and very likely had a whole heckuva lot of fun!
Case in point – and I swear on my “Vampire Diaries”: Season 1 DVD Collection with Bonus Disc that I DID NOT CHEAT. My iTunes are just this awesome. - I give you….
~My Life According To iTunes~
#1 Opening Credits: “Too Daze Gone” ~ Billy Squier
Well, OF COURSE “My Life: The Movie” opens with an epic classic rock tune!
#2 Waking Up: “No Room To Bleed” ~ Ben Lee
Perfectly mellow for crawling out from under the covers. Excellent. Plus, it reminds me of of the good ol’ days of “Smallville” when I still watched.
#3 1st Day of School: “Walkin’ On The Sun” ~ Smash Mouth
Can’t say I exactly remember the first day as ‘walkin’ on the sun’.. “but it’s spice for the recipe”
#4 Falling In Love “High Voltage” ~ AC/DC
Because love absolutely should rock and be high voltage all the way!
#5 Fight Song “Wild, Wild West” ~ The Escape Club
LOL. Well, at least Ronnie brought a new gun.
#6 Breaking Up “All In The Name Of” ~ Motley Crue
Oooookay….so guessing the subject of this song is WHY we broke up. ‘Cause that’s all I got.
#7 Prom “Heart of Stone” ~ The Rolling Stones
Yay! The Stones at my prom!! What? Yes, of course, they played there live. *this scene is a dream sequence in the movie*
#8 Life “You Got That Right” ~ Lynyrd Skynyrd
Huh? What did you say? Oh sorry, I was busy ROCKING OUT to my life
#9 Mental Breakdown “Jackson” ~ Johnny Cash
So wait, I have a mental breakdown in Jackson over a guy? Okay, that scriptwriter has GOT. TO. GO.
#10 Driving “Looks That Kill” ~ Motley Crue
Ha. Awesome. *drums the dashboard*;)
#11 Flashback “Wild Horses”~ Bush
Acoustic guitar. Gavin Rossdale covering one of my favourite, favourite Stones tunes. I highly approve of this track choice for any scene in my movie. Carry on.
#12 Getting Back Together “Without You” ~ Motley Crue
Seriously. It’s like iTunes KNOWS me…well, inner teenage-me, anyhow
#13 Wedding “Wild At Heart” ~ Lee Aaron
ROTFL! Look up the lyrics and you will be too. Too good, iTunes. Too. good.
#14 Birth of Child “Howlin’ For My Baby” ~ George Thorogood & The Destroyers
I actually spit my coffee when this one started playing. Too funny ( and punny) on a plethora of levels for me.
#15 Final Battle “Country Honk” ~ The Rolling Stones
Apparently I’ll be going down swingin’ in a bar in Jackson. What is it with me and Jackson?! So did not see that coming… though I probably should have ( see #9)
#16 Death Scene “Down So Long” ~ Jewel
Have no idea how I *actually* go down, but I’m envisioning a bittersweet, yet epic montage sequence here.
#17 Funeral Scene “Hells Bells” ~ AC/DC
Don’t. even. say it.
#18 End credits “Speak To Me/Breathe In The Air” ~ Pink Floyd
“Long you live and high you fly/ And smiles you’ll give and tears you’ll cry/ And all you touch and all you see
/ Is all your life will ever be.” * and the audience sways with their lighters lit above their heads as the credits role* So my movie’s music composer DID read all of my letters/sidenotes :)
Okay, now it’s YOUR turn! This game is even MORE fun when we all play together so:
If you blog, post your soundtrack on your blog and leave a link in the comment section of this post. If you don’t blog, make a playlist on one of the gazillion sites out there like Playlist.com and post that link in the comments section of this post. Or just comment. Whatever works
Okay then. Ready? Set? PLAY!
