I found this meme floating around the internet this morning and figured it would make for a good time waster and an excuse to listen to some music.
So, 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 section of the movie, type the song that’s playing
No cheating now…we’d all love to cherry pick the soundtrack to our movie, but you gotta’ follow the rules…
But first, how about a movie poster to go along with my soundtrack?
Opening Credits: “You Ought To Be With Me” Al Green (Nice. This song is super funky and romantic…it always makes me smile…a fine song to start a movie)
Waking Up: “Charleston Alley” Lambert, Hendricks, & Ross (Okay, I don’t care what anyone says, I love this group…not sure where this movie is going yet…)
First Day At School: “Billion Dollar Babies” Alice Cooper (Well, we’ve certainly switched gears here…)
Falling In Love: “Gogomobil” Carlo Montez (Sweet, this is a jazzy European instrumental number that riffs on the Neil Hefti theme from BATMAN)
Shower Scene: “Frisco Night” Lalo Schifrin from the SUDDEN IMPACT soundtrack. (What the fuck kind of shower was that? I’m all freaked out…)
Fight Song: “Wu Banga 101” Ghostface Killah, GZA, Raekwon, Cappadonna, Masta Killa (I wondered when the Wu was gonna’ show up…features a sample from “Queen Of Tears” by Gladys Knight & The Pips.)
Breaking Up: “Dig Boy Dig” Freddie Hart (Oh man, a rockabilly track…I have a past not many of y’all know about…)
Prom: “Funky” Andre Brasseur (More sexy European gogo music from the 60s…Best…Prom…Ever!)
Life’s OK: “Finger Of Scorn” Cirith Ungol (FYI: the band’s name is Elvish and it means “Pass of the Spider“….Rings, bitches!)
Mental Breakdown: “Hopelessly Devoted To You” Olivia Newton-John (I am kind of gay you know…)
Driving: “Dats What I’m Talkin’ About” Missy Elliott with R. Kelly (This song is all about fucking…and, um, the sex scene comes after the driving scene…I can’t wait to see what comes next…)
Sex Scene: “Hall Of The Mountain King” Savatage (Okay…I really wish I could switch this one with the driving scene…)
Flashback: “Emergency” Dee Dee King (This is Dee Dee Ramone‘s rap record…beautiful…)
Getting Back Together: “Hippa To Da Hoppa” Ol’ Dirty Bastard (I know, I’m such a romantic…Samples “It’s A New Day” by Skull Snaps and “Sing A Simple Song” by Sly & The Family Stone)
Wedding: “Slayers” from John Carpenter’s VAMPIRES The Texas Toad Lickers (I would like to imagine that this was the band playing at the wedding…know why? Here’s a list of the musicians: John Carpenter – keyboards, piano, guitar and bass, Steve “The Colonel” Cropper – guitar, Donald V.”Duck” Dunn – bass, Rick Shlosser – drums, Jeffrey “Skunk” Baxter -electronic guitar, dobro and steel pedal, Joe Robb – saxophone, Bruce Robb – Hammond B3 organ…’nuff said.)
Birth of Child: “State Of Independence” Donna Summer (Whoa…not my favorite Donna Summer…it’s a cover of a Jon Anderson (of YES) and Vangelis song…very 80s…the lyrics work though)
Death Scene: “Gasoline Dreams” Outkast (Don’t everybody like the smell of gasoline?)
Funeral Song: “Killing An Arab” The Cure
(Weird…my funeral is set to a song based on “…one of the most famous French novels of the twentieth century…” and is considered to be “…among the best literary expositions of the absurdity of human existence in an indifferent universe.“…nice.)
End Credits: “Break My Body” Pixies (After FIGHT CLUB we all know that the Pixies are a fine way to close your film.)
Well, not exactly what I would have picked, but interesting none the less….If any of you knuckleheads participate in this here meme, let me know…I’m a sucker for soundtracks.
I wonder what would happen if I did it again?
