I got this from one of my favourite blogs, Lane’s Write; it’s a rather fun meme.

If Your Life Were a Movie…What Would the Soundtrack Be?

So, 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…because you’re not!
7. Stick the soundtrack on your mp3 player and listen away during the day.

Opening Credits – Cornflake Girl, Tori Amos

I especially love Hitsville UK as a waking up song, but I would worry a little about the birth of the child one, despite it being an excellent song.
