I’ve seen this before but it’s most recently stolen from Merrick.

Thus, the iTunes ‘Soundtrack of my Life’ meme.

Here’s the instructions:

1. Open your library on your iPod (or in iTunes).
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.

Here’s what I got (with itunes, I don’t have my nano handy):

Opening Credits: “Time to Kill!” – Horslips, ‘The Tain;’
Waking Up: “Beside You Heros” – totom, ‘With Boots’ (I don’t even know what this is or where I got it)
Falling in Love: “Ecstasy” – Spacemen 3, ‘Perfect Prescription’
Fight Song: “Making Memories” – Rush, ‘Fly by Night’
Breakup Song: “Little Angel” – Bleed the Day, ‘Bleed the Day’
Making Up Song: “High Friends in Places” – Giant Drag, ‘Hearts and Unicorns’
Life’s Okay Song: “Crimes of Paris” – Elvis Costello, ‘Blood and Chocolate’
Mental Breakdown: “Subhuman” – Blue Öyster Cult, ‘Secret Treaties’
Driving: “Master of Puppets” – Metallica, ‘Damage, Inc’
Flashbacks: “I Love You” – Matthew Sweet, ‘Kimi Ga Suki’
Happy Dance: “Reconsider Me” – Warren Zevon, ‘Genius’ (and Kirsten, I owe you a huge thanks for that CD)
Regret: “FireFly Theme” – Sonny Rhodes, “Firefly”
Final Battle: “Sam’s Tune” – Cannonball Adderly, ‘Sophisticated Swing’
Death Scene: “Not Ready Yet” – Eels, ‘Beautiful Freak’
Final Credits: “Crystal Gazing” – Be Bop Deluxe, ‘Sunburst Finish’

I’m somewhat amused at a few of these, though I keep wanting to make edits or switch them around. And I’ll admit that one of these I did edit, not using the song that came up. I’m not saying which one.

  1. Those are great results! Very personalized. 🙂 I think the Firefly theme for “regret” is kinda creepy–it’s such a good song but it’s sad too!

    Sometimes edits just need to happen.

  2. I’m gonna guess it was CW McCall – Convoy.

    Or perhaps the rogue William Shatner cover tune? One of those ones that is usually accompanied by a Dean-and-Sammy imitating, chain-smoking Shat?

  3. I love Matthew Sweet but I don’t have that CD (“Kimi Ga Suki”). Never even knew it existed. Wanna do a trade? CD for whatever you name.
