the story of my life in music

i've had this post on hold for months...

if there was a movie made about my life here is the soundtrack. these songs come from different times in my life and bring back memories. i'm not much into music. usually i like to listen to old music i've had for a long time. i don't really care about discovering new bands and all that. i do time to time discover something new that i will usually listen to all the time, but i never go to shows. anyway...

semi-chronological:

girls just wanna have fun - cyndi lauper

wake me up before you go go - wham

jump - van halen

strawberry fields forever - the beatles

any early pulp

daddies making monsters - demented are go

any early johnny cash

apart - elkland

ready 2 wear - felix da housecat

i'd rather dance with you - king's of convenience

let go - frou frou

she's a study - tv eyes

asleep - the smiths

alone in kyoto - air

fade to grey - nouvelle vague

bela lugosi's dead - nouvelle vague

currently can't stop listening to:

california - joni mitchell

while my guitar gently weeps - the beatles

beauty mark - charlotte gainsbourg

little monsters - charlotte gainsbourg

ultra orange and emmanuelle

i have no idea who would play me in a movie about my boring life... hmm...
who would play the part of you in a movie chronicling your life?

That's so weird! I saw a post by my radio DJ friend on Facebook who did this a while back and I have always wanted to make a story of my life through music. But then I got way too lazy to think about it and to find the music and all that jazz. You just brought this subject backup again! But we'll see if I get off my lazy arse and stop staring into my nothing box to do anything about it.
