I’ve done laundry, cleaned bathrooms, unloaded the dishwasher, and even wiped my freaking floor in an effort to avoid the Reagan/Gorbachev era outlines that are screaming to me about my worthlessness from my bedroom. Unless I want to move into polishing silver, it was this or nothing.
IF YOUR LIFE WAS A MOVIE, WHAT WOULD THE SOUNDTRACK BE?
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…
7. When you’re finished tag some other people to do it!
Opening Credits: I Say a Little Prayer For You, The Cast of My Best Friend’s Wedding (I would indeed like my opening credits to be led by a gay guy.)
Waking Up: Shut Up and Drive, Rihanna (I don’t normally wake up to a thinly veiled sexual-reference song, but hey.)
First Day Of School: Holland, 1945, Neutral Milk Hotel (Anne Frank and indie folk rock? This school year would suck.)
Falling In Love: Canon in D, Pachebel (Am I a mail-order bride who jumped right to the wedding?)
Fight Song: Declaration, David Cook (Hell yeah! I’ll fight you. To the tune of an American Idol winner…)
Breaking Up: Whenever, Wherever, Shakira (Que???)
Prom: Shattered, O.A.R. (Worse prom ever.)
Life: Crazy in Love, Beyonce (So I begin school with the Nazis, get shattered at prom, and still am crazy in love?)
Mental Breakdown: El Tango de Roxanne, Moulin Rouge Soundtrack (I have often thought that I would like sad violins and Ewan McGregor to be there when I finally crack about being a whore.)
Driving: It’s All Been Done, Barenaked Ladies (This is a good driving song.)
Flashback: Mi Morena, Josh Groban (Except for the fact that I’ve used Morena as my internet name for like ever, I fail to see how this would work.)
Getting Back Together: Goodbye to You, Michelle Branch (I think they got this and the breaking up song confused.)
Wedding: This Ain’t a Scene, Fall Out Boy (Two things: I dislike the fact that my wedding will be a goddamn arms race, and I do not want Fall Out Boy to be there.)
Birth Of Child: Thornton’s Walk, North and South Soundtrack (Those are some damn slow contractions.)
Final Battle: Change, Taylor Swift
Death Scene: It’s All Coming Back to Me Now, Celine Dion (But I’m dying…)
Funeral Song: Every Breath You Take (A very stalkery funeral.)
End Credits: Superman, Five for Fighting (I give up.)
Well. This was fun. And not nearly as embarrassing as the last one. Barry Manilow didn’t show up once.
