This game was taught to me by my friend Lee from From My Side Of The Moon (great blog! Check it out!) We haven’t played in ages but it is ALWAYS a good time!
These are the rules: Grab a pen and paper and write down #’s 1 through 18. Open your iTunes to “Music” so your entire library is displayed. Click the Shuffle button. Click Play. Now WITHOUT SKIPPING ANY SONGS, write down the first 18 that play.
This is how mine turned out tonight:
Song #1: Opening Credits: “Fallback” by Sleeperstar
Not super familiar with this song but it’s really pretty and seems appropriate for opening credits. It does talk about “misdirection.”
Song #2: Waking Up: “You Got It” by NSYNC
Great tune for getting up and getting your day started!
Song #3: 1st Day of School: “The Youth” by MGMT
Song #4: Falling In Love: “Resignation Studies” by The Silent League
This song is really kind of lovely and perfect for skipping hand in hand on a beautiful fall day. Even if it does talk about jealousy. Originally heard on my favorite episode of TVD: Let the Right One In.
Song #5: Fight Song: “Come Back” by Pearl Jam
Wow. Super powerful song and I can hear it played so perfectly behind and epic lover’s quarrel. Originally heard on Friday Night Lights.
Song #6: Breaking Up: “Lover to Lover” by Florence + The Machine
GREAT break up song!! All about moving from bed to bed. I can get behind that! (After a break up! Not now in real life!!)
Song #7: Prom: “I and Love and You” by The Avett Brothers
This is such a stunning song. I can picture the slow dance.
Song #8: Life: “He Won’t Go” by Adele
Pretty sure any Adele song is great as a life anthem.
Song #9: Mental Breakdown: “We Don’t Eat” by James Vincent McMorrow
Originally heard on TVD. First line: “If this is redemption, why do I bother at all.”
Song #10: Driving: “Gz and Hustlas” by Snoop Dogg
Apparently I am over my breakdown enough to jam out to some old school rap. Sweet.
Song #11: Flashback: “Lovefool” by The Cardigans
From Romeo & Juliet. LOVE this song. Very suitable for a flashback of my life.
Song #12: Getting Back Together: “Stop and Stare” by One Republic
OMG!! This is so great! EPIC reunion song! “Time for one last appeal.”
Song #13: Wedding: “Jonathan Low” by Vampire Weekend
This song is from Eclipse. Not really wedding appropriate. It’s about killing some guy I think?
Song #14: Birth of Child: “Satellite Heart” by Anya Maria
Another Twilight song! This one from New Moon. And a bit too sad for the birth of a child. Apparently my iPod has decided to stop playing fair.
Song #15: Final Battle: “Skylines and Turnstiles” by My Chemical Romance
Total head banging song! I think it totally works for a battle scene!!
Song #16: Death Scene: “Warning Sign” by Coldplay
Now I’m gonna cry.
Song #17: Funeral Scene: “Daft Punk is Playing At My House” by LCD Soundsystem
From The. O.C. How awesome would that be to have Daft Punk playing at your funeral?
Song #18: End credits: “The Only Exception” by Paramore
Super gorgeous song. Love it!
Give it a try friends and let me know how it goes!! I promise, it is a LOT of fun! Don’t forget to tell me how yours turns out!
