If your life were a movie, what would the soundtrack be?
Here's how this meme works:
1. Open your library (iTunes, winamp, media player, iPod).
2. Put it on shuffle.
3. Press play.
4. For every question, type the song that's playing.
5. New question-- press the next button.
6. Don't lie and try to pretend you're cool.

Opening Credits:
Over My Shoulder — I am Kloot

Waking Up:
Cripple Creek Ferry — Neil Young

First Day of School:
A Conjunction of Drones Simulating the Way in Which Sufjan Stevens ... — Sufjan Stevens
A conjunction of drones sounds about right.

Falling in Love:
Hang on Little Tomato — Pink Martini

Breaking Up:
She Smiled Sweetly — Rolling Stones

Here it Comes — Modest Mouse
Considering I didn't go, maybe the line "the place and the time when we knew everything would go wrong" is appropriate.

I'm Amazed — Frank Black
Honestly, I didn't cheat.

Mental Breakdown:
I Need Some Fine Wine and You, You Need to be Nicer — the Cardigans
...and I don't even drink.

Getting Back Together:
More Adventurous — Rilo Kiley

Like Spinning Plates — Christopher O'Riley covers Radiohead

Final Battle:
This Old Guitar — Neil Young
What a downer of a battle that's gonna be.

The A-Team theme song
...and what an awesome funeral!
