Soundtrack your life...
Well there doesn't seem to be a thread for this, so I thought I'd ad one.

I often find myself listening to a certain song and having it remind me of certain times in my life, for example Kaiser Chiefs "I predict a riot" reminds me of my first time going to a festival.

And I also hear songs that I love and decide that they will be played at specific events:

Green Day - Good Riddance is going to be the song played at my funeral while my first dance (if i ever get married) will be to Aerosmith "I don't want to miss a thing"

I was just wondering does anyone else do this and if so what are the songs that soundtrack your life???

Re: Soundtrack your life...
Great idea for a thread! :D

I often find myself listening to Machbook Romance's Tiger Lily. I completely represents my love life, and how hopeless I am at it :lol:.

And I would love Red Jumpsuit Apparatus - My Guardian Angel to be played at my wedding. I love that song! :D

I think for my wedding song, I would have "Messge of Love" by the Pretenders. For my first dance, then after that, "Safety Dance" and "Love Shack", just to be ridiculous. :D

Hmm... for my funeral... "Stop Your Sobbing"??? :lol: No, huh?? Well then on a more serious note (mind you it is 12:45), how about "Into the West". Sad yet hopeful, and very pretty. My favorite song.

I would also pick "Into the west" by Annie Lennox to have at my funeral ..Or "Harvest of sorrow" by Blind Guardian.

For my wedding , i would probably pick "The bard's song" by Blind Guardian .. It's not romantic but it shure is a beautiful song.

Well at my high school graduation, "Dream On" by Aerosmith was played as the class song :D.

For my funeral, "Time of Your Life" by Green Day would be fitting.

I love this thread. I do this all the time. For instance when I first started my divorce the song was Here I Go Again On My Own as well as These Boots Were Made For Walking.

For my funeral I want them to play "I'm Too Sexy" by Right said Fred. Just to make everyone laugh, its one of my favorites :lol:

Once the divorce started getting ugly I really related to Hit Em Up STyle by Blu Cantrell, but I (unfortunately) didn't spend on anything fun, just joint debt.

For my wedding I would like God Only Knows by the Beach Boys played at some point.

I have a ton of others, but I am going to be late picking up my kid from school.

Re: Soundtrack your life...
lol I have so many songs that really mean something to me. i even wrote one of my college admissions essays on songs that mean a lot to me.
i go through phases with what i listen to, and right now i'm in a kind of "showtunes" mode, so every single song i hear from, say, rent, avenue q, or hairspray, reminds me of something in my life.
i think that for my wedding, if i ever get married, i would want to play "everything" by michael buble. it's such a pretty song! :D
i would totally request that my family play "Time of your life" by green day (even though it is kind of cliche) at my funeral. closely followed by the numa numa song by ozone. just to lighten the mood.

am i the only one who has songs that remind them of harry potter characters? i'll admit it, i've made mixes of songs that remind me of harry potter. they're some of the cds that i listen to most :p

Re: Soundtrack your life...
If I ever get married, I will be dancing (with my mom!) to Butterfly Kisses by Bob Carlisle, and same if I have a daughter and she gets married! I absolutely love that song.

Re: Soundtrack your life...
If I ever get married, I'd like to dance to Des'ree - Kissing You.
And for my funeral, I really have no idea, but I don't want it to be sad, I really would like the songs to remind people of my life...

Re: Soundtrack your life...
Funeral: Green Day - Good Riddance, yeah I know it's a breakup song but none the less the lyrics fit!!

Rammstein - Reise, Reise reminds me of my first gig abroad (Denmark) which was one of the best experiences ever. Train to London, plane to Denmark, train from airport to Copenhagen, rush to hotel, drop bags at hotel and run to venue, watch Rammstein, sleep, do the travel all over again in reverse.

Paramore's Riot! always reminds me of working on a clients website, adding over 1000 products in a couple of hours to meet their deadline. Odd!

Burn - Nine Inch Nails. I love a good ballad :lol:

Re: Soundtrack your life...
I'll make it onto my testament that none of my greedy relatives wont get a dime of my billion dollar inheritance if they don't play Eric Idle's Always Look On the Bright Side Of Life at my funeral...And everyone has to whistle!

Re: Soundtrack your life...
I think that often if I could soundtrack my life so far, it would be Love Today - Mika, because I appreciate life and just like to have a laugh :D

Re: Soundtrack your life...
"Highway to hell" by AC/DC would be played at my funeral and for my wedding I want "Anyone else but you" by The Moldy Peaches... I am quirky and these songs fit my taste... Besides I don't want anyone forgetting my funeral :lol:

10_MinutesAlone June 13th, 2008 3:45 pm

Re: Soundtrack your life...
The soundtrack for my life so far is either Whatever it takes by Joe Budden, 10 Minutes by Joe Budden or Stained by Joe Budden. They are pretty much all about being alone but aren't as emo as they sound now that I'm describing them.

The song to my funeral is going to be 'If I Die Tommorrow' by Joe Budden, because it's a good song and I'm twisted like that. :lol:

padfootrules June 14th, 2008 7:43 pm

Re: Soundtrack your life...
Hm.... if a song has to describe me then I would have to say... Back in Black by AC/DC...I got nine lives :lol:

Re: Soundtrack your life...
Anything that has songs about being bored, sad, tierd, depressed, happy, in-love, strange, and crazy. That'd be the soundtrack of my life, but frankly I've never heard a cd like that.

Saoirse June 15th, 2008 4:46 pm

Re: Soundtrack your life...
Getting over a girl: Cryin'- Aerosmith
