Soundtrack of Your Life

June 4, 2009

Since I am all about reuse, I bring to you content originally seen in a Facebook note…

Pick the “top twenty” songs for the “soundtrack of your life”!

You can write in NA for anything not applicable (e.g. #2 if you’re an only child or #10 if you’re single) or come up with an alternate category for that number.

1. Song that reminds you of a parent (or grandparent): “Sprits in the Material World” by The Police. Mom doesn’t like anything not classical, but she thinks this song is da bomb. “Can’t you hear the syncopation?!?” “Hit the Road, Jack” by Ray Charles for my dad. No, we don’t share the same taste in music either.

2. Song that reminds you of a (step) sibling: “Superstitious” – Stevie Wonder

3. Song that reminds you of childhood: “Crazy on You” – Heart

4. Song that reminds you of high school: “Rock n Roll High School” – The Ramones

5. Song that reminds you of college: “Situation” – Yaz

6. Song that reminds you of a former teacher: “Imagine” – John Lennon

7. Song that reminds you of a former coworker: “Reasons to be Cheerful (Part 3)” – Ian Dury and the Blockheads

8. Song that reminds you of an old friend: “Heartbreaker” – Pat Benetar

9. Song that reminds you of a former sweetheart: “Open Arms” – Journey

10. Song that reminds you of your significant other : “Margaritaville” – Jimmy Buffet

11. Song you danced to at your (or someone else’s) wedding: “Crazy” – Patsy Cline

12. Song you have to dance to even if you’re alone: “Pump It Up” – Elvis Costello – I danced to this one all alone at the Tower Festival in London, and with my friend Liz at Jones Beach!

13. Song you have to sing when it comes on the radio: “Tainted Love” – Soft Cell – oy, the shame!

14. Song you can’t believe you know all the lyrics to: “The Magnificent Seven” – The Clash

15. Song you can never remember all the lyrics to: “It’s the End of The World As We Know It” – REM

16. Song that reminds you of a good time: “Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic” -The Police

17. Song that reminds you of a bad time: “She’s Lost Control” – Joy Division. Bonus answer: “How Soon is Now” – The Smiths

18. Song that reminds you of a special time: “Wild Night” – John Mellencamp

19. Your theme song: “Love Song” – The Cure

20. Song you want played at your funeral: “Back in Black” – AC/DC
