there used to be this “game” that went around called “soundtrack to my life”. and basically what you do is you open your library, put it on shuffle and then just keep hitting next and then type out the song that ends up playing during each turn to fill in the scene that is given in a list. which means, the songs are as random as can be. it also means people are exposed to the most embarrassing corners of your library, ’cause you’re not meant to skip at all.
so i’m going to do that today for ‘movies+music+tvshows’, ’cause there is nothing much to talk about in regards to movies (didn’t really watch one) nor tv shows (off-season period).
i warn you, the songs that come up are completely random and i’m doing it right now as i
speak type. oh, and also my library may be huge (and by huge, i really mean huge), but it is also about five years out of date. so none of the new/current songs that i like are in it:
My Heart – Paramore
Time After Time – Quietdrive
Comme Des Enfants – Coeur de Pirate
Story of a Girl – Nine Days
falling in love:
Where Will I Go – Jason Sweet
She Said, I Said (Time We Let Go) – NLT
(i just went back to the music video and i realised kevin mchale from glee was in this band – wow.)
getting back together:
I Will Follow You Into the Dark – Death Cab for Cutie
Time Stands Still – All-American Rejects
Emergency – Paramore
Cold Dark World – Weezer
What’s My Age Again – blink-182
Face Down – Red Jumpsuit Apparatus
Burning Years – Story of the Year
long night alone:
How Many Words – Blake Lewis
Playing for Keeps – Matchbook Romance
as you see, some songs work out better than others. but i’m kind of happy that some songs are accurate to the theme. i think the ones i really disagree with are the ‘happy dance’ and ‘long night alone’. i kind of love the fact that the buffy musical epic song ‘walk through the fire’ turned up as the ‘death scene’.
so, here’s where i suggest that you try it out too!
