Re: Soundtrack your life...

I think that if I ever had a song that described my life, it would have to be One Last Breath, by Creed.

Re: Soundtrack your life...

That's a great song I would have to say "All my days" by Alexi Murdoch

Well I have been searching all of my days
All of my days
Many a road, you know
I’ve been walking on
All of my days
And I’ve been trying to find
What’s been in my mind
As the days keep turning into night

Well I have been quietly standing in the shade
All of my days
Watch the sky breaking on the promise that we made
All of this rain
And I’ve been trying to find
What’s been in my mind
As the days keep turning into night

Well many a night I found myself with no friends standing near
All of my days
I cried aloud
I shook my hands
What am I doing here
All of these days
For I look around me
And my eyes confound me
And it’s just too bright
As the days keep turning into night

Now I see clearly
It’s you I’m looking for
All of my days
Soon I’ll smile
I know I’ll feel this loneliness no more
All of my days
For I look around me
And it seems He found me
And it’s coming into sight
As the days keep turning into night
As the days keep turning into night
And even breathing feels all right
Yes, even breathing feels all right
Now even breathing feels all right
It’s even breathing
Feels all right

Re: Soundtrack your life...

I often listen to "Dancing With Myself."
Decribes the story of my life. All I do is dance.

Re: Soundtrack your life...

I often think about things like this. For my wedding day (if I ever get married that is...) God Only Knows by The Beach Boys and/or Stand By You by the Pretenders.
On my funeral I want the song Hymn to Her by The Pretenders and Days by The Kinks to be played. Both my mum and dad says that they want Days to be played at their funerals as well. It's sucha great song.

The soundtrack to my life in general I think at the moment is either Daydream by the Lovin' Spoonful or Waterloo Sunset by The Kinks

Re: Soundtrack your life...

There's a great email going around about this, soundtracking your life according to a set of questions. The idea is that you put your MP3 player on shuffle and then just play each song. It actually turns out really really well. If I can find it, I'll post it here, but in the meantime,

Life: Talk Show Host, Radiohead
Love: Streets of Philadelphia, Bruce Springsteen
Wedding: River Flows in You, Yiruma
Funeral: The Call, Regina Spektor

I'm gonna go look for the email, and even if we don't use it here, it has some great questions involved that some of us would enjoy answering!

Re: Soundtrack your life...

Love life: Cadence by Anberlin

Life in general: There's A Party Over Here by Deez Nuts (I'm assuming 99.9% of you won't have heard of this band or song but it's basically about having an awesome time,
partying etc Also some of the lyrics are bit... inappropriate so I won't post them)

When I'm feeling cynical: Fitter Happier by Radiohead

Re: Soundtrack your life...

Ooh, cynical is a good one. I think, if I'm feeling cynical, I'd go for "The Island" by Paul Brady. It's just such a caustic and cruel narrative of warring situations and the meaning of glory.

Of course, it's good for depressing moments too!

Re: Soundtrack your life...

I've got my funeral songs all arranged (bit worrying, right?(

Through the Dark - KT Tunstall
She's Like A Rainbow - Rolling Stones
The Gravel Road - The Village Soundtrack

I want my first wedding dance song to be At Last by Etta James, followed by A Town Called Malice by The Jam.

I have never heard any of those songs! Weird! But I would also add "Nothing Else Matters" by Metallica to my list. It's just really pretty!

Ohh good choice. My dad made me listen to them a lot as a youth.
If you get the chance, listen to Etta James, she is amazing. At Last is in my opinion the most romantic song ever.

Cool! Very nice! I'm thinking of others. When I'm angry, I listen to Eminem's Lose Yourself. Or when I'm caught up in studying or work, I love to hear mvoie soundtracks. LoTR, King Kong and Disney are amongst my favourite.

When I'm thinking things through?
Just Around the Riverbend, Pocahnontas.

Re: Soundtrack your life...

During a lower point of my life: Silence by Jars of Clay

Funeral music (since I'm a Christian I thought it was fitting: "No need to say 'good-bye'")

More when I think of 'em...

Re: Soundtrack your life...

Love: The Vines - "Atmos"
Funeral: The Vines - "Vision Valley"

I fell in love with the "Vision Valley" song ever since I first heard it.
And I know it sounds morbid, but I immediately thought "This is the song I want to be played at my funeral.. I want people to think of me, remember me, whenever they hear it..".

"Are you here forever standin' by the road
With the benefit of feelin' on your own
Where the river ends the sun is comin' down
Through the Vision Valley waitin' to be found..."

Re: Soundtrack your life...

When I was younger I wanted Bohemian Rhapsody playes at my wedding-just for the lulz.
My funeral all depends on how I die. If I die tragically young then Hallelujah by Jeff Buckley but if I had a good long life then probably I did it my way or Always look on the bright side of life. Whatever the circumstance, I also want I got my mind set on you by George Harrison. It's a happy song but always makes me sad because of George

When I am giving birth to my first child, I want Unfinished Sympathy to be playing for some reason.

Yeah I have it all planned out...
