the soundtrack of my life

i'm painting my living room today (green. . . duh! alfalfa to be exact) and just got real tired. so i looked at some blogs. saw this, thought it was perfect procrastination fodder. so i did it. i really like that my life opens with phoebe snow. she's so rad. barbara ann would be a really annoying but funny song to fight to. anyhow. here's to thunderstorms, green paint and great music. xoxo
here's how it works:
1. open your music library
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.

opening credits: love makes a woman- phoebe snow
waking up: heavy metal- clap your hands and say yeah
first day at school: lakes of pontchartain- the be good tanyas
in love: celebration guns- stars
fight song: Barbara ann- the beach boys
breaking up: death of a shade of hue- of montreal
prom: snow- emiliana torrini

driving: sorry for laughing- nouvelle vague
flashback: puis-je?- ladybug transistor
getting back together: new monster avenue- the mountain goats
birth of child: bathtime in clerkenwell (rise ashen remix)- the real Tuesday weld
wedding: just goes to show- shortwave set
final battle: roadrunner- johnathan Richmond and the modern lovers
death scene: fever dream- iron and wine
funeral song: 5 years- bjork
end credits: still cold- mazzy star
