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...)
Birth: Ignition by TobyMac - Portable Sounds (a bit awkward for child birth, but what the heck)

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.)
Flashback: GO-4 by Thomas Newman - WALL-E: Soundtrack from the Motion Picture (You know this actually fits...somewhat.)
Wedding: Surfin' Bird (Bird is the Word) by Trashmen - (no album name given) (This is one awesome wedding...)

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...)
End Credits: Stars by Switchfoot - The Beautiful Letdown (And it fits. Now this is my theme song!)

Just take out my songs and replace them with your own, and that's it!

    Grudge - Rooster by Alice in Chains

    Signing up for the U.S. Army - Some sort of dramatic symphony by Hans Zimmer

  • ^ Either you're shuffle is sentient, or you're doing it wrong. :p

  • Okay, I'll do the ultimate shuffle and start up Spotify, select the radio and include everything. Here goes, I assure you I won't cheat:

    [LIST]
    [*]Opening Credits: Blow Wind Blow - Tom Waits
    Fair enough, winds of fate blowing

    [*]Birth: Morse Code - Roni Size
    It's trying to say something, but I have a tough time interpreting this.

    [*]First Day of School: Pray For Me - The Jayhawks
    It went just fine, trust me. :)

    [*]Falling in Love: Fairy Tale of New York, Live From Glasgow Barrowlands - Amy Macdonald
    Well this is interesting. Is that where I will meet the one?

    [*]Fight Song: 2000 Light Years Away - Green Day
    Ah yes, I'm destined for great exploration and fights against alien races.

    [*]Breaking Up: Regulator - Devin Townsend
    It's incredible how the names can somehow fit the themes even with such a random shuffle .. never heard of this song before, but it sounds like one nasty break-up.

    [*]Prom: Freebird - Molly Hatchet
    Okay, sometimes the Shuffle just doesn't work.

    [*]Life: True Warrior - Manu Ndulu
    ... but sometimes it does. I love this game. I love what it's saying about me. :)

    [*]Mental Breakdown: Quedate a Dormir - Joaquin Sabina
    Someone care to translate?

    [*]Driving: You Do - Until June
    I do driving? Yes, I do.

    [*]Flashback: Eyes of a Criminal - Chimaira
    Hmh, pay no attention to this one. ;)

    [*]Wedding: Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Could See - Busta Rhymes
    Sounds like the usual marriage to me to be honest.


    [*]Birth of Child: My Life Would Suck Without You - Almighty Divas
    A very strong message, but I disagree. I'm definitely living trying to make this scenario not happen.

    [*]Final Battle: I Wish I Could Shimmy Like My Sister Kate - Chris Barber Featuring Ottilie Patterson
    Will my inability to shimmy be my downfall? Rats.

    [*]Death Scene: All Prayed Up - Nitty Gritty Dirt Band
    I guess all the praying in the world can't save me when the shimmy fails.

    [*]Funeral: Spanish Rose - Van Morrison
    Touching. Thank you.

    [*]End Credits: Only Getting Started - Steven Curtis Chapman
    And on this note, I finish my life story.
    [/LIST]

    What a wonderful game, thank you, Guy in a Box. :)

  • [LIST]
    [*]Opening Credits: "Shinobi Vs. Dragon Ninja" by Lostprophets - from the album "The Fake Sound of Progress"
    [*]Birth: "Alive" by P.O.D from "Satellite" (OMG that works :D)
    [*]First Day of School: "Jump" by Van Halen from "1984".
    [*]Falling in Love: "Follow the Reaper" (Hmmm... Makes me wonder who I'll never fall in love with. My ex-wife, for whom I still have feeling, was no serial killer. Well, not that I knew. There's actually some potential, there...)
    [*]Fight Song: "Take Her to the Music Store" by From Autumn to Ashes, from "Too Bad You're Beautiful".
    [*]Breaking Up: "Morgenlich Leuchend in rosigem Schein" by Wagner from "Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg" (I think this actually might work, too")
    [*]Prom: "TV Casual" by the Misfits, from "Static Age". (We don't have proms and most of our secondary schools don't have formal dances or annual celebrations. If this is what they would play at such events then it would also explain why we don't. [EDIT] Actually we do have 'proms', but they're a completely differant event to what you have. (They have nothing to do with school, for one thing).
    [*]Life: "I'll Be Yours" by Placebo, from "Sleeping with Ghosts". (I wasn't sure about this, at first, it's kind of downbeat. But the lyrics turned me around).
    [*]Mental Breakdown: "Parasites" by Napalm Death, from Scum.
    [*]Driving: "Metabolic" by Slipknot, from Iowa. (I don't drive, but I imagine I might be prone to road rage if I did, so this fits).
    [*]Flashback: "Gotta Go" by Agnostic Frost, (this managed to surprise me, but it does work, in a way. But, for this category, I think anything could).
    [*]Wedding: "Diary of a Dope Fiend" by Marilyn Manson from "Smells Like Children", though this is, apparently an EP, and not an album. (Maybe I should start to worry. This applied to nobody at my last wedding, and should I have another....)
    [*]Birth of Child: "Ungrateful Dead" by Amen from "we have come for your parents". (Now that seems morbid...)
    [*]Final Battle: "Zulieka" by Akercocke, from "Rape of the Bastard Nazarene". (This would fit, yet the song seems somehow bland. It's not particularly well polished).
    [*]Death Scene: "Abadonna" by Akercocke, from "Words that go Unspoken, Deeds That Go Undone". (This one definitely works, assuming my death is as tragic an event as I can hope it will be).
    [*]Funeral: "I Don't Want No Cybersex" by Mojo Nixon, from "Sock Ray Blue!" (HA!)
    [*]End Credits: "Calm Like a Bomb" by Rage Against the Machine from "Battle for Los Angelies". (This was from the end credits from one of the Matrix films, if I remember correctly).
    [/LIST]

    I must confess I accidentally closed the player window while I was going this. Everything from "Wedding" onwards might have been very different, hopefully I'd have gotten another song for "Birth of a Child".

    So it's a Michael Bay movie?
