If your life were a film, what would the soundtrack be?

Okay, if this thread is supposed to go in the Forum Games section, then someone please move it if need be.

Anyway, these are the rules:

1. Open your library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, iPod, etc)
2. Put it on shuffle
3. Press play
4. For every category, type the song that's playing, along with the artist and the album name
5. When you go to a new category, press the next button
6. Don't lie.
7. Only do this two three times, one for the original movie and one for the "sequel" one for the "sequel", and one for the "third sequel that nobody really asked for but got anyway". But please, wait until at least 8 10 replies have already been submitted before you do another. The playlist replies, I mean.

Alright, these are mine:

Opening Credits: Driving with the Top Down by Ramin Djawadi - Iron Man: Music from the Motion Picture (so...much...awesome...)

Falling in Love: Shut Your Eyes by Snow Patrol - Eyes Open (...Wow, and right after AC/DC...:confused:)
Fight Song: Iron Monger by Ramin Djawadi - Iron Man: Music from the Motion Picture (Yeah, this fits. This fits real good.)
Breaking Up: Cheer Up, Coach Z by Homestar and Coach Z - Hooked on Decemberween (I'd like to try breaking up with someone by singing them this song XD)
Prom: In the End by Pickin' On Series - Bluegrass Tribute to Linkin Park (Okay, I have no idea if I should be impressed or terrified...should be one interesting prom)
Life: American Dream by Switchfoot - Oh! Gravity. (Much better. This could work as my theme song :p)
Mental Breakdown: Confessions (What's Inside My Head) by RED - Innocence & Instinct (Whoa, this actually fits...o_o)
Driving: Everything You Know is Wrong by Weird Al Yankovic - Bad Hair Day (YES. This fits PERFECTLY. I just cracked up when I heard this.)

Final Battle: The Feeling by Kutless - To Know That You're Alive (w00t (' ')\m/)
Death Scene: Put On Your Sunday Clothes by Michael Crawford & Company - WALL-E: Soundtrack from the Motion Picture (Holy...crap...apparently, I'm going to have some hallucinations on my death bed. "Is that...*censored*...an angel? Why, yes, *censored*, St. Peter, I would love to *censored**censored* play with you! *giggles gleefully, then five censors*")
Funeral: Hardware Store by Weird Al Yankovic - Poodle Hat (...Well, it IS my funeral, so...)

    That was fun. :D

  • @StinkomanFan said: Birth: CaremellDansen by Caremell (Wait... What?!)



    Wow, you must have had a pretty awkward childhood. Did people try to stay their distance away from you at the snack table?

  • Opening Credits: Paramore – emergency (yeah right)

    Birth: yellowcard - back home (works in a way)

    First Day of School: opeth – heir apparent (maybe)

    Fight Song: dj jazzy jeff and the fresh prince - boom, shake the room (or not....)

    Breaking Up: coheed and cambria - In Keeping Secrets Of Silent Earth: 3 (no just no)

    Prom: blink 182 – first date (actually this could kinda work for someone)

    Life: nine inch nails –only (eh)

    Mental Breakdown: biffy clyro – joy discovery invention (sorta)

    Driving: ash – detonator (not really)

    Flashback: flood of red – oh yes there will be a flood (traumatic one maybe)

    Final Battle: black sabbath – paranoid (could work)

    Funeral: reuben - song for Saturday (yeah)

    End Credits: almost lost – inme (maybe)

  • Opening Credits: The Night - Disturbed (yep, that makes zero sense; pretty neat song though)
    Birth: Fight On - Powerglove (a metal cover of music from Killer Instinct.... pretty weird song to play at my birth, but, again, a good song nonetheless)
    First Day of School: Ride the Lightning - Metallica (I'm starting to doubt the abilities of the music managers for this film)
    Falling in Love: Mega Man 2: Wily Part 1 - NESkimos (yep, I need new music managers)
    Fight Song: Nostradamus - Judas Priest (after firing my old music managers, my newly hired team finds a song that almost sounds good with the situation; not quite, though)
    Breaking Up: Baba O'Riley - The Who (good song, and funny to listen to while watching the break up, but the effect isn't exactly what would be desired)
    Prom: Mega Man 2: Wily Part 2/Showdown - NESkimos (I'm beginning to get the feeling that my life is being portrayed in 8-bit)
    Life: Your Sweet 666 - HIM (how disturbing)
    Mental Breakdown: Pain Redefined - Disturbed (this definitely makes the most sense so far)
    Driving: The Unforgiven III - Metallica (this scene was shot in the middle of a torrential downpour; unfortunately, a convertible had been purchased for the shooting of this movie, and the overall effect calls for this song to played)
    Flashback: Metroid - Minibosses (a flashback of me playing Metroid, I suppose... not exactly entertaining)
    Wedding: Another One Bites the Dust - Queen (yes. very yes.)
    Birth of Child: The Time Warp - Riff Raff Columbia Magenta Narrator & the Transylvanians (it's just a jump to the left)
    Final Battle: Power, Wisdom, Courage - Powerglove (somehow, a metal filter of songs from The Legend of Zelda makes sense here)
    Death Scene: A Lonely September - Plain White T's (where's Another One Bites the Dust when you need it?)
    Funeral: Mega Man 2: Crash Man - NESkimos (I can just see my child sitting in the corner playing Mega Man 2 at my funeral)
    End Credits: Smoke on the Water - Deep Purple (whoopee)

    Somehow, the abundance of video game metal throughout the movie makes me wonder if I someday become a game designer. Or a musician, that plays video game metal.

    so doesn't make any money

  • @patters said: so doesn't make any money



    Yeah, you're probably right. I don't have any idea how much money someone like Powerglove makes, though... perhaps I surprisingly make it big.

  • I should have mine up soon, just found my strusty, 3rd gen Nano... out of power. Here'es hope that some Flight of the Concords is in my soundtrack!

  • You know you can just do it from iTunes, right?
