Random Life Soundtrack

It is pretty weird to me that I found this idea on Carey’s facebook, especially since just a week or so ago Stefanie had to figure out an intentional soundtrack for her life, and I have been thinking about that a lot lately.  This one is pure silliness, but I’m thinking about compiling a "Time in Korea" soundtrack sooner or later.
The idea is that you open your music library and put it on "shuffle".  Let it play, and for each question, type the song that played. Sounds easy enough…
1.Opening Credits: Neil Young – Ohio
2. Waking Up: Vivaldi – Concerto for Two Violins
3. First Day at High School: The Smashing Pumpkins – Jellybelly
4. Falling In Love: Lowgold – Less I Offer
5. Fight Song: Coldplay – Help is Around the Corner
6. Breaking Up: LCD Soundsystem – 45:33
7. Prom: Radiohead – Subterranean Homesick Alien
8. Life: Aereogramme – Hatred
9. Mental Breakdown: The Eels – Dead of Winter
10. Driving: Sigur Ros – se lest
11. Flashback: The Smashing Pumpkins  – Galapogos
12. Back Together: Love is All – Ageing Had Never Been His Friend
13. Wedding: Travis – Me Beside You
14. Sex Scene: Radiohead – Planet Telex
15. Birth of Child: Eddie Vedder – Trouble
16. Final Battle: RJD2 – Final Frontier
17. Death Scene: Mogwai – Ratts of the Capital
18. Funeral Song: Joshua Radin – Today
19. End Credits: Ugly Casanova – Bee Sting
I’m feeling frisky… I’m going to try this again, but just with my favourite songs and not the entire damned library. I think it will be more accurate that way – I don’t listen to everything on my PC. And just so all ya alls don’t think I’m being OVERLY picky about this… there are 221 songs in the playlist I am using! So… less randomly and (hopefully!) more accurately…
