Because Sonya said I had to . . .

I read this meme on Sonya's blog, and she said after I read it I had to do it. So here goes.

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

Here’s how it works:
1. open your library (iTunes, winamp, media player, iPod)
2. put it on shuffle
3. press play
4. for every section, type the song that’s playing
5. next section — press the next button
6. don’t lie and try to pretend you’re cool

opening credits: Nessun Dorma - Luciano Pavarotti

waking up: Take Five - Dave Brubeck (not much of a wake-up song!!)

first day at school: Knitting Song - Rainbow Chasers

falling in love: I Believe In You - Don Williams (this was the song I danced to with my dad at my wedding. I'm not much of a country music fan, but he is - and I've always loved this song)

breaking up: Same Old Lang Syne - Dan Fogelbert

prom: Can't Find My Way Home - Blind Faith (uumm, I don't like what's implied there!!)

life’s okay: Sway - Michale BublĂ© (oh yeah!!)

mental breakdown: Deja Voodoo - Kenny Wayne Shepherd

driving: Valotte - Julian Lennon (okay, I won't get any speeding tickets with this one!)

flashback: Sign Your Name - Terence Trent D'Arby (CHILD OF THE 80s!!)

getting back together: Come On Eileen - Dexy's Midnight Runners (tee hee)

wedding: Gold Dust Woman - Fleetwood Mac (huh?)

birth of child: White Rabbit - Jefferson Airplane (OMG, am I giving birth to a druggie??)

final battle: Southern Cross - Crosby, Stills & Nash

death scene: Caruso - Luciano Pavarotti

end credits: I'd Really Love to See You Tonight - England Dan & John Ford Coley

Okay, have you ever seen such a disjointed set of song? My taste in music is so varied it's kind of scary!!

Want to play too? Let me know, so I can come read your list!

Who knew I had such power? ;o)

I love to see that other people are still listening to cheesy 80's music! Terence Trent D'Arby! Dexy's Midnight Runners! England Dan and John Ford Coley! I love it.

Olga said...

Yay Terence Trent D'arby! He was awesome. And I love Sway! That's just put me in a good mood for the morning. :-)

michaele said...

I love it. I'm going to try it on my blog, too.

Ragan Knits etc... said...

That was a good one, looks like you had fun with it too. Ok, wonder what mine would do...hmmm...I will have to try this one.

Sarah said...

Oh, this is too fun. Must do!

From one 80's girl to another... love your shuffle!

Chelle said...

That is sool funny! I've never done a meme, but had to do this one.

It's all up at my blog:

Long time, no talk. Hope all is well!

Zonda said...

Well, another 80's throwback here LOL!

Jennifer said...

I love so many of those songs! Terence Trent D'Arby! It's been years since I've listened to one of his songs.

Ragan Knits etc... said...

Yay. Ok, I played along with this one and posted it this morning. I tried to create a link (since I am computer challenged...not sure if it worked correctly).
Happy Friday.

What a cool meme. I'd love to try it but I'm so far behind on blogging right now. Maybe after Christmas. Hope you're surviving all the snow and freezing rain!

Dipsy Doodle said...

What a great meme this is, thank you for sharing! I really loved your choice of songs, and there's certainly quite a bunch of goodies among them (I'm a child of the 80s too ;)

Anonymous said...

Great meme, it made me go and put some of my 80's music on ;)

Hey there, sorry it's been so long since I've said anything. I just wanted you to know I still have been checking in pretty often to see what new things you have been up to. Hope you have a wonderful holiday!
