Soundtrack To My Life’s Movie

From DaveS comes this meme.  Sorry for using the word “meme”.  But it’s a good meme, I think.
 

“If Your Life Was a Movie What Would the Soundtrack Be”

The rules:
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:
A Day In The Life – The Beatles

Waking Up:
What My Woman Can’t Do (Can’t Be Done) – George Jones

First Day at School:

Closing Credits:

For the record, I skipped ahead once.  Once, instead of a song, I got a podcast, so I didn’t allow that to count.
Otherwise, a pretty cool soundtrack, if you ask me.  All over the place.  I am particularly happy with the Opening and Closing Credits choices.  Also happy to have Black Flag playing for my death scene.  Wonder where that’ll be, and what the circumstances will be?
