We are in the final stretch of NaBloPoMo here, and no one reads on Saturdays anyway, right? So I am grabbing this from Just Miss, who borrowed it from Hockeyman. Here is my life as a movie, as in soundtrack.
Here are the rules:
1. Open your library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, iPod, etc)2. Put it on shuffle3. Press play4. When you go to a new question, press the next button5. For every question, type the song that’s playing6. Don’t lie and try to pretend you’re cool. (because face it, you ain’t that cool)
Pictures of You - The Cure
Love this song. The Cure figure pretty largely in the music of my life especially after I met the Man. And it's a pretty song.
Come Together - Primal Scream
Wake up psychedelic dancing, I guess.
First Day at School:
Everything's not lost - Coldplay
How melancholy. This is me, though. I was a very melancholy little thing, very shy, softspoken in school. Didn't like to speak, even when spoken too. Cry at the drop of a hat. Boy, where did that girl go?? This does have some hope to it doesn't it? I guess I turned out all right.
Falling In Love:
Weekend - Kenny Lattimore
This was from a CD we bought from the W Hotel Chicago, where we went for our 10th wedding anniversary. Perfect for this scene, clubby even in the lobby. It was the first time we had been away together alone since becoming parents. It was a couple defining moment, when we realized that we DID have more to talk about than just our kid.
Neon - John Mayer
Well, sorta weird. But check the guitar work ... awesome.
Goodbye Yesterday- Nick Heyward
Remember Haircut 100? Yeah, I'm that old. I loved them, especially their lead, Nick. I guess this might be symbolic of the almost break-up, and then final make-up ie. engagement process that we went through.
Sing it again - Beck
Sad song, what imagery in the lyrics. Don't know what it had to do with my prom though...maybe the fact that my hair was a wreck. Yeah, that's the connection.
Bury Her - Crash Vegas
This CD Red Earth, is timeless. Rather obscure, though, I can't figure out how to link a snippet of this song.
November Spawned a Monster - Morrissey
...called NaBloPoMo, and I'm killing it, aren't it? Gahhhhh!!!!Great song, though. Uh, the video, I don't know about that...
Karma Police - Radiohead
One of my fave songs of all time. Funny that the video features driving.
Tomorrow People - Ziggy Marley & the Melody Makers
Oh, lovely memories of vacationing in the Caribbean, great beaches, sand, Jamaican rum, lean, mean, tanned bodies. Before we had to find beaches with water parks, and kid-friendly was the furthest from our minds ...ironic though, our kids ARE tomorrow people, aren't they?
Getting Back Together:
Blitzkrieg Pop - Ramones
Hah, what a hilarious song for getting back together. I guess we could have been bopping, but I highly doubt it.
Reach up for the Sunrise - Duran Duran
What an optimistic song, and a comeback of sorts for these guys. Well, sorta. We saw them live on their reunion tour and they were AWESOME. It was the first concert I went after having the girlie, so after a lovely dinner, wine, and beer I was more than a little tipsy (I even had to pump and dump). But even to inebriated eyes, Simon LeBon doesn't always look like a 50 year old woman, at least not when he's on stage. In all honesty, he's likely the most well-preserved of the group. My fave, John Taylor, is looking a little skeletor-ish lately.
Birth of a Child:
Eyes of a Stranger - the Payolas
This is interesting. I remember the first night alone with the baby boy after he was born, he was all swaddled and facing me in the hospital room. Looking at me and almost saying with those piercing dark eyes, "Hey, are you my mommy, and do you think you're gonna know what to do with me? You'll take good care of me, won't you?".
And my previously terrified heart swelled with such love that I knew indeed, I would do everything in my power to take good care of him. I've never forgotten that moment.
Soul Mining - The The
Hmmm, no words for this one.
Choose Life - PF Project featuring Ewan McGregor (Trainspotting soundtrack)
Intense is the only word I can come up with. Amazing what things Ewan has done since this early film. I loved him since then and Shallow Grave. Hard to believe he's Obi Wan and was singing his heart out in Moulin Rouge.
Tom Sawyer - Rush
Does not compute at all, but another excuse to listen to a classic. And it's Canadian and all. BTW, Rush in Rio, best concert DVD EVAH!!!! Those Brazilians know every single word and go NUTs over these guys.
Stay Away - Nirvana
No video for this, but man, this song rocks. I forget sometimes what a great drummer Dave Grohl is...
Thanks for listening.
