Lara David: The Movie

Posted by Lara at 6:14 PM
Feeling uninspired, so... time for a meme! Thanks to Aly for bringing this to my attention!

If your life were a film, 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.
7. When you're finished, tag some other people to do it!


Opening Credits:
"Angel" by Sarah MacLachlan (Wow, what a depressing beginning: "There's always some reason to feel not good enough, and it's hard at the end of the day." I hope this isn't indicative of my movie's general theme...)

Waking Up:
"Burn" by JoDee Messina (I'm not sure this makes much sense.)

First Day At School:
"Stand" by Rascal Flatts (Do I have to stand all the time? What about nap time?)

Falling In Love:
"I Think It's Going to Rain Today" by Bette Midler (What a depressing love song! "Broken windows and empty hallways - a pale, dead moon and a sky streaked with gray." I have that kind of love life in the real world...)

Fight Song:
"It's Your Love" by Tim McGraw and Faith Hill ("It's your love - it just does something to me." Like, say, makes me want to fight.)

Breaking Up:
"Anthem Part 2" by Blink 182 (Damn straight: "We really need to see this through. We never wanted to be abused. We'll never give up. It's no use - if we're f---cked up, you're to blame." Oh, and apparently "we" have multiple personalities.)

Prom:
"Somewhere Someday" by N*Sync (Yeah, that's cheesy enough to be a prom song. I accept.)

Life:
"All I Ask of You" from The Phantom of the Opera ("All I want is freedom - a world with no more lies." Yep, that's my life all right.)

Making babies:
"Silent All These Years" by Tori Amos (Um... "Boy, you'd best pray that I bleed real soon - how's that thought for you?")

Mental Breakdown:
"Bless the Broken Road" by Rascal Flatts (God bless the broken road that led me to this padded cell...)

Driving:
"Tus Ojos Mexicanos Lindos" by Juan Gabriel (Oh my God, I'm so ashamed I have this in my media library.)

Flashback:
"God of Wonders" by Caedmon's Call and Third Day (Yeah, flashing back to when I wasn't so jaded, and I could actually appreciate the glory of God. Boy, I need to get back to that place.)

Getting back together:
"Soon Love Soon" by Vienna Teng (So, by "getting back together," we mean "playing hard to get and promising future fulfillment that will never come"? Cool, I'm in.)

Wedding:
"Bring On the Rain" by JoDee Messina ("I can't imagine what else could go wrong." Clearly I'm looking at a damn happy future with my husband-to-be. You know you're jealous.)

Birth of Child:
"Main Street Electrical Parade Theme" from Disneyland (Thank God! Because if I'm enduring all those hours of agony in labor, I'm going to need something happy to keep me from killing the man at my side.)

Final Battle:
"Love Theme" from St. Elmo's Fire (Wow, that's one mellow battle I'm having. Maybe Winamp meant to find the theme from "Chariots of Fire," instead.)

Death Scene:
"Wouldn't Be So Bad" by Allison Krauss and the Union Station ("I don't want to see the life I had - thought the next time 'round wouldn't be so bad." Apparently, I'm going the reincarnation route.)

Funeral Song:
"These Days" by Rascal Flatts ("If you ever come back around this sleepy old town, promise me you'll stop in to see an old friend, and until then... I wake up, and-" Oh, wait. No, I don't wake up. I'm dead.)

End Credits:
"Little Drummer Boy" by Bing Crosby and David Bowie (It seems we're going for a Christmas weekend opening, hoping to cash in on the holiday crowd.)

Because I'm lazy, I tag... you! Yep you. Don't look behind you - I mean you.

No, not you.

Yes, you.

Now go. Be fruitful and meme-ify.

Sadly, I cannot participate. I don't have that type of media library. And to make one just for this would be falsifying :)

HA!

Some of yours were just WEIRD. :P

Caffeinated Librarian on 9:27 PM said...

Oh! Oh! Oh! I'm soooooo gonna do this. Yippie!

Sorry, I'm trying to wind down after the UNC game. I've gotta drive home to visit the extended family (*ugh*) tomorrow. This will be a good distraction. Thanks Lady!

Amanda on 1:48 PM said...

Well, you have great taste in music!!!!!

Sandra on 3:21 PM said...

Oh this is a fun one. I played along as I read yours though I'll likely not post it ... because mine were just plain embarassing if I don't cheat.

Tense Teacher on 5:09 PM said...

You were tagging me, right? I was one of the you's, but not a you, right?

Well, I'm taking this, anyway, so nyah!

Bryan on 4:07 PM said...

Yeah, I'm totally doing this one. Looks like a ton of fun. :)

Earlier in church this morning, I randomly thought of your lyrics "God bless the broken road that led me to this padded cell..." and started chuckling during a somewhat inappropriate moment. Look what you've done! ;)

TSM - that is too bad. but you're right in that it's not worth falsifying. glad you got to live vicariously, though. :)

aly - i know! it was annoying...

CL - yay! have fun with it. hopefully you're will turn out better than mine.

amanda - well thanks, chick; you do too. :)

sandra - hahahaha, well, at least you played along on your own. i'm curious about the embarrassing ones, though... ;)

tense teacher - of course! i'm glad you understood my "you" because it was totally aimed at you.

bryan - you know i love to make you laugh at inappropriate moments. :-P
