Well I am follow suit from Ben’s blog and I am going to try out the soundtrack of my life here at Terribly Poetic. As Ben mentioned how he has alot of music, well, so do I. The difference between Ben and myself is that iTunes is my library. I don’t think of how many albums I have, just how many gig I have. So after doing alittle checking I was shocked to see that my iTunes library has 632!!! albums in it. So here goes…
Here it is, The soundtrack of my life. * As decided by my iTunes. * The Rules:
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
Little Man with a Candy Cigar – Dave Brubeck> How fitting that it should start with a jazz song from one of the best jazz players of all time. The album is called Ballads. Also fits well with the blog name of “Terribly Poetic.” Man do I love jazz. Could only have been better if it where Miles.
Stability – Death Cab for Cutie> Well this song appears abit to early in the sound track. Could have fitted abit better near the end. Although the line, “Getting the air inside my lungs is heavenly” sorta works with the waking up theme.
First Day of School:
Destiny – Zero 7> Wow I do love Zero 7. However, this one came just one track to early.
Falling In Love:
Superstition – Stevie Wonder> Hmm.
Reach Out To Me (Original Mix) – Atfc Feat. Mica Inaya Day> Okay so a disco, dance song from the UK music scene isn’t perfect, but when it comes to me fighting, well, maybe it could work.
With Arms Wide Open – Creed> Not to bad of a choice here. But once again, doesn’t exactly fit breaking up.
New York City – Norah Jones & The Peter Malick Group> Okay so I think this one is a pretty good choice. Since I have never really liked “dances,” my idea of a good evening could easily include an intimate setting listening to some Norah Jones.
I’m a Bomb – Natasha Bedingfield> Well, this song shows abit of my girly side. Another one that doesn’t quite fit. Or does it?
It’s All Been Done – Barenaked Ladies> Finally one that’s hit out of the park. What better song to speak of a mental breakdown that this one….
It I Can’t Have You – Zero 7>Did expect to get two Zero 7 songs on the list. Abit to slow of a song for driving. Relaxing but maybe abit to relaxing.
Night Of Nights – Live> Well music from Live does bring me back to thinking about High School days, however this is from their new album so its not perfect.
Getting Back Together:
Let’s Groove Tonight – Earth, Wind and Fire> WOW, need I say more.
Dirge – Death in Vegas> Not a great selection, but at least its mostly instrumental and the music continues to build so it could be stretched to make a entering or exiting song. Oh and the only lyrics are La, La, La, throughout the song.
Birth of Child:
Every Breath you Take – The Police> This is absolutely perfect. I find myself watch Libby and wanting to see every step she takes….while its more of a love song, it just works great here too.
Transcendence – Thievery Corporation> Again, this one is abit off. But with the right imagination and the right part of the song. The eery voice in it could work great though.
100 Years – Five for Fighting> Following behind the previous songs on this list, this one seems to fit great here.
Love on the run – Chicane> Well I am satisfied now. I was scared Chicane wasn’t going to make the cut. I would love to have any Chicane played at my funeral. I want it to be a big party and what better group than Chicane.
Show You Love – Jars of Clay> While not the song I would have picked. It does have a great theme that I would love for the credits of my life. Showing love to those that need it and haven’t had it before. Great.
Okay I have to admit that this was fun. However, I did cheat abit. Instead of using iTunes shuffle on my whole library, I used Party Shuffle for the whole library. I had “Play higher rated songs more often” checked. And display 5 recently played songs and 25 new songs checked. I tried doing it the other way and got a list that was just ridiculous. Christmas song, jazz song, jazz song, dance mix song, etc, etc. Didn’t really work.
