IF YOUR LIFE WAS A MOVIE, WHAT WOULD THE SOUNDTRACK BE?


Hmmm. Rarely do I indulge in this type of thing, but My man Stevens did so that is good enough for me. This sort of thing has a history with me. Back in Buies Creek McCracken and I put together a mix (on a mini-disc) based on a random selection of songs in our combined CD library. We went back and forth. CD # whatever, song # this. and burned it. It was fun. Later it manifested itself one night in Cary, NC when we picked songs out in complete darkness and danced to them, recording every remarkable moment with a nightvision enabled video camera.

Anyway, to the amusement of a very few. Here's what happened when I shuffled my iTunes library of songs and pressed next.

Opening Credits:
Caitlin Cary - Please Break My Heart

The Delgados - Girls of Valor

Funeral:

End Credits:

The funny thing now is that my shuffle is still going as I write this and I'm listening to Justin Timberlake's Right for Me. Don't ask.

Just out of curiosity I just clicked next to see what would come up out of the over 4.8 days of songs I have on iTunes...

Maurice Chevalier - Thank Heaven for Little Girls

The song Stevens wife danced to with her father at their wedding.

Serendipity. Amen.
