3% Of The Movie About My Life is Now Finished

I saw this on Lindsay Wasik’s blog, and since I was wondering what to post about, it felt like a divine delivery.
IF LIFE WAS A MOVIE, WHAT WOULD THE SOUNDTRACK BE?
1. PUT YOUR iPod/iTunes ON SHUFFLE
2. PRESS PLAY
3. DON’T CHEAT
4. FOR EACH QUESTION, PUSH FORWARD
6. SERIOUSLY, DON’T CHEAT
Opening Credits: Ocean Breathes Salty – Modest Mouse
Waking Up: Alone Down There – Modest Mouse
First Day Of School: Tonight, Not Again – Jason Mraz
Falling In Love: Written in the Stars – Elton John & LeAnn Rimes
Fight Song: Shiver – Maroon5
Breaking Up: The Stone – Dave Matthews Band

My personal favorite selection is The Stone as a breakup song.  Perfect.  Tears are in Your Eyes is also pretty nice for a flashback.
I’ve kind of always thought that Jimmy Eat World’s "Bleed American" CD would be good as a 1-CD soundtrack for my life.
peace,

    Just out of curiosity, in the movie about your life, do you die in high school? The Kenny Chesney makes me wonder, that’s all.

    My favorite is “Blowin in the Wind” as a graduation song. And the fact that you have Joan Baez on your Shuffle is either remarkable or scary. I haven’t decided which.

    That Joan Baez is from the Forrest Gump soundtrack. Does that make it any better?
