Music meme…humour restored


Thanks to @fionaweb, @malbooth and @snailx for this meme.

Truth is, I’m a bit cranky today, so I’m taking lunch off to do this and I hope it works!!


1. Open your library (iTunes, 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!

Opening Credits: I fall -The Damned (whoops)

Waking Up: It’s not true – The Who (Ok so far this is funny…)

First Day At School: A rush of blood to the head – Coldplay (OK getting spooky)

Falling In Love: From St Kilda to Kings Cross – Paul Kelly

Fight Song: Wintertime Love – The Doors (ha ha)

Breaking Up: Seaside – The Kooks (?- nice place to be when heart broken…grey beach walks?)

Prom: Lebanese Blonde – Thievery Corporation (extremely mellow prom that…)

Life: Bovaglie’s Plaid – Alasdair Fraser- fiddle – Swoon Collection II (noice…but I’m not that mellow)

Mental Breakdown: Home – Iggy Pop! (ha!- see this is when I think the meme is rigged…)

Driving: Don’t wanna be left out – Powderfinger (pretty rocking driving song)

Flashback: Rock & roll (live) – Velvet Underground – Gold Collection (I am now thinking this is the BEST meme ever!)

Getting Back Together: I still pray – Casey Chambers/Paul Kelly

Wedding: One of these days – Velvet Underground – Gold Collection (well I am, so there….not one of their best songs…)

Birth of Child: Romantic – Zeb, off Asian Lounge album (lotsa tabla!)

Final Battle: Ballad of a dead man – Powderfinger (no kiddin’)

Death Scene: Tomorrow – Silverchair (eeeep)

Funeral Song: 21st century – Red Hot Chilli Peppers

Remembrance Song: Human nature – Miles Davis (mmm I love Miles Davis, but generally skip this one )

End Credits: Let forever be – Chemical Brothers

OK- I’m hooked. Great meme!  And a timely reminder to me that I must put more music on my iPod and use shuffle more. I only have a five minute commute so don’t use my iPod very often. I use it more when I’m away or on long car trips. Often kid’s music/iPods are playing at home.

Wasn’t expecting ANY of those songs.

My humour is restored.
