I Sing the Body Eclectic

Both Wonderdawg and Sista Smiff offered some interesting, if random, insights into themselves by playing along with this little meme from A Voice of Hope.

So I figured I’d give it a try.

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 and no disclaimers allowed.

Opening Credits: Sugar Pie – The Subdudes

Waking Up: Forro de Minha Terra Duda Da Passira

First Day At School: Wild Cat Blues – Clarence Williams’ Blue Five

Falling In Love: Monkey Let the Dogs Out – Allison Krauss and Union Station

Fight Song: Next Time You See Her – Eric Clapton

Breaking Up: Rolling Stone – Muddy Waters

Prom: Symphony #2 (1st movement) – Beethoven

Mental Breakdown: Pay Bo Diddley – The Snakes

Driving: Slow and Easy (A.K.A. Lawless Mike) – Dave Brubeck

Flashback: Jackie Tequila – Skank

Getting Back Together: Having a Blast – Green Day

Wedding: Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride – Tower of Power

Birth of Child: Anselma – Los Lobos

Final Battle: Don’t Stand So Close to Me – The Police

Death Scene: You Make Me Feel So Young – Frank Sinatra

Funeral Song: The Condom Song – Unconscious Pilot

End Credits: Scuttle Buttin’ – Stevie Ray Vaghan and Double Trouble

Interpretation is up to you. I’ll be glad to answer any questions about my strange-ass music collection in the comments.

    Okay, fine.
    I guess if I’m going to be in the cool kids club, I better go and do this.

    And what’s so interesting and random about….Andy Williams and Kiss being in the same shuffle?

    Do you really have I Sing The Body Electric in your shuffle? I always loved that melody.

    You wound up with some pretty great results, C, but “The Condom Song” being the soundtrack for your funeral is a mite disturbing. Heh heh.
