Shuffle, Please

I rarely - okay, NEVER - do these meme things....I mean, what IS a meme, anyway? But J at our world together did it, and I was inspired. Or bored.

This one caught my eye/ear, being a musician and all. 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 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: Tripp - On the Cusp of Everything and Nothing
*very strange, this. Heard this guy play at a youth function almost 18 years ago. Monster bass player...never saw him again, but love this obscure album
First Day At School: Caedmon's Call - Can't Lose You
Falling In Love: Shawn Mullins - For America
*don't think so...
Breaking Up: The Greencards - I Don't Want to Lose You
*yes, this is quite appropriate. thanks, Jayne...
1st date: Michael Roe - 20 Years Gone
*no kidding. Texas Rangers baseball game. B-O-R-I-N-G. I am sure he was as bored as I was. When we got home, he dropped me off at the curb; didn't even pull in the driveway. Don't remember his name...
Prom: Candi Staton - His Hands
*yes, well. Candi's talking about Jesus' hands here...
Life's OK: Sting - The Lazarus Heart
*never thought of this tune as one that indicated that life was okay. Maybe if you're weird like that...
Driving: Under the Tree - On the Western Front
*too slow to be a driving song, but another pretty cool obscure Cleveland band.
Flashback: Marie Digby - Fool
*oh, that I have been. Flashback indeed. Another gift from Jayne - amazing the impact this blogging buddy has had on my musical life!
Getting Back Together: Leeland - Beautiful Lord
*yes, thanks to Him...back together...
Wedding: Audio Adrenaline - Big House
*big house. Broken home.
Final Battle: Bob Dylan - Precious Angel
*I think this works...
Death Scene: Shawn Mullins - Home
*Interesting, another Shawn Mullins tune. And the ultimate home...
Funeral Song: Ashley Cleveland - Come Thou Fount
*oh to grace, how great a debtor/daily I'm inclined to be...
End Credits: David Crowder - The Color Song
*quite appropriate, I'd say...

I let the shuffle continue and wish that 'Sick Inside (Just A Girl)' (Hope Partlow) and 'Pretty Maids All In A Row' (Eagles) could count for something...

I have 3,700+ songs in this iTunes folder. Interesting what popped up.

What happens if YOU try this little exercise?

So, what's to say you couldn't do another soundtrack?! Maybe we should make a new one up, and include things like, "Birth of first child" (and for you, the next four!), and "Day the Divorce Was Final," etc...

AND--I just caught up on your blog and realized we have exactly the same birthday! I KNEW the connection to be strong--this solidifies it! I'm gonna go rustle you up on Facebook!
