Soundtrack of my life

Permalinks to this entry: individual page or in monthly context. For more material from my journal, visit my home page or the archive.

Via KA and Air (who's working on hers), here is the "playlist of my life" according to Shuffle mode in my iTunes Library:

  1. Opening Credits: "Last Night When We Were Young" - Kenny Burrell
  2. Waking Up: "Truganini" - Midnight Oil
  3. First Day at School: "Uh, Zoom Zip" - Soul Coughing
  4. Falling in Love: "From Russia With Love" - Matt Monro
  5. Fight Song: "Peter Gunn" - Sarah Vaughan (Max Sedgley Remix)
  6. Breaking Up: "Back to the World" - Curtis Mayfield
  7. Prom: "Popcorn" - Walter Wanderley (Diplo Remix)
  8. Life is Good: "Taxman" - The Beatles
  9. Mental Breakdown: "Bowtie" - OutKast
  10. Driving: "Gallows Pole" - Led Zeppelin
  11. Flashback: "Casino Queen" - Wilco
  12. Getting Back Together: "Start the Commotion" - Wiseguys
  13. Wedding: "Girl, You'll Be a Woman Soon" - Neil Diamond
  14. Paying the Dues: "All Blues" - Miles Davis and John Coltrane
  15. The Night Before The War: "Preachin' Blues (Up Jumped the Devil)" - Robert Johnson
  16. Final Battle: "Oh Well (Parts 1 and 2)" - Fleetwood Mac
  17. Moment of Triumph: "Cross Road Blues" - Robert Johnson
  18. Death Scene: "Superbeast" - Rob Zombie
  19. Funeral Song: "More Red Than Red" - Derek K. Miller
  20. End Credits: "Love" - John Coltrane Quartet

That's honestly a pretty damn good playlist. I'm surprised at the amount of jazz (particularly Coltrane) and Robert Johnson. The "Popcorn" remix makes for a pretty weird prom, while I like the irony of "Taxman" as the theme to "Life is Good." The wedding theme is a tad creepy, and unfortunately, the Rob Zombie death scene music implies a more violent end than I'd like.

If you want to play "More Red Than Red" at my funeral, I'd be very pleased indeed. Still, that's going to be a long time away, so maybe I'll write something better before then.
