Music of Your Life

I found this on this...survey I guess...on a blog on myspace. I hate surveys and the like, but I actually enjoyed doing this.

If you're bored you should fill it out. I'm interested to see what songs mean what to you.

I want you to fill out the list below with the songs you think best describe various moments in your life. The questionnaire is laid out as though your life was a movie, so think of the songs as your life's soundtrack.

It is a lot of fun to put together… but not nearly as easy as it might seem. Also when you look at other people's lists it is a great way to find out more about them and, maybe, find some new tunes.

Copy and paste the list below into your response… then simply fill it in. I'll start it off.

  2. I had to look up most of the songs you picked. lol That is definitely the fun though.

    Porcupine or Pineapple was a great choice for a mental breakdown. I just started giggling when I heard it for some reason. The video for Junior Kickstart was also quite amusing. :)

    I had heard a song by Badly Drawn Boy but I didn’t know who it was performed by and I LOVE them now, so thanks. I also like Interpol, especially their song Slow Hands.

  3. Lol yeah it si fun finding new music i know most of yours there are a few i dont, Fiona Apple i have no idea will look for her now.

    20 of the songs/bands are brtish most arnt well known outsideeurope i guess.

    Porcupine or pineapple is an awesome song!! Brakes rule!!

    Interpol one of the best New York bands ever!!!
