Life’s Soundtrack

            We all remember those chain quizzes that
seemed popular on MySpace and other digital portals back in the day.  One of my favorites was the life soundtrack
quiz and all its variations.  The basic
concept was you would take your music library, put it on shuffle and answer
each “question” with the title of the song played, skipping to the next song with
each question.  In the end you would end up with a list of songs that would be the soundtrack for your life if it was a movie.  I was recently reminded
of these quizzes by my girlfriend and in a moment of nostalgia felt compelled to share my supposed life
soundtrack.  This may also give an interesting snapshot of the type of music you might find in my library.  Following the end of the list will be a link with a YouTube playlist of all these songs.
