Soundtrack of my life

My blog is swiftly becoming something other than poetry and art. Ruth posted the soundtrack of her life on her web page, and then asked if anyone else was interested. 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...

Opening Credits- Hard to Be Humble, Mac Davis-- well, ya know, I AM pretty fabulous. Actually, this is the only song I've ever karaoked by myself, and I got a standing ovation. ;-)

Waking Up- Not Enough, Caedmon's Call

First Day at School- Secret Touch, Rush-- I don't know this song very well, but it's catchy.

Falling in Love- Can She Excuse My Wrongs?, Sting & Edin Karamazov-- hehehe. L'amore รจ cieco.

Fight Song- Take Control, Code of Ethics

Breaking Up- The Rhythm Method, Rush-- hm.

Prom- I Will Listen, Twila Paris-- I did go to Prom, and unfortunately, at that point in my life, I really don't know if I was listening to anyone's voice but my own. Oh well.

Life is Good- Wonderful, Everclear-- Wow. So I guess this isn't a feel-good movie.

Mental Breakdown- I've Got to Stop Thinkin' Bout That, James Taylor-- HA- that's appropriate.

Driving- Head Over Feet, Alanis Morissette-- Not a bad driving song.

Flashback- I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For, U2-- I can NEVER find what I'm looking for. And I have lots and LOTS of moments in teh past to which I can flashback when I couldn't find something or other.

Getting Back Together- Find Yourself-- I really like this song.

Wedding- Peace, Rich Mullins-- very apropos.

Paying the Dues- Take to the World, Derek Webb-- not crazy about this song, but it has some good ideas in it, like "like the Three in One, you know you must become what you want to save, because that's the Way He takes to the world." I guess that's appropriate.

The Night Before the War- Nothing Really Changes, Code of Ethics

Final Battle- Doth I Protest Too Much, Alanis Morissette-- I've fought most of my battles on a psychological field, so I guess this is appropriate.

Moment of Triumph- Stroller Town, Jonathan Coulton-- now that's just silly. But a very funny and fun song.

Death Scene- Coming Home, Caedmon's Call

Funeral Song- Arms of the Angel, Sarah McLachlin-- Again, I guess this isn't a feel-good flick.

End Credits- Sacred Love, Sting-- Ooo.. I can live with that. THAT is a great song, and a great last thought, to have found sacred love. Niiiiiice.

1. Open your library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, iPod, etc.)????

I don"t have any of these. Duh, I feel so inadequate!

Don't worry, John. I know you're not an uncultured neophyte. ;-)
