Personal Life Soundtrack

>> Thursday, January 1, 2009

Ok, ok, ok. This is not really a list per se. Well, its numbered, so technically, you would be wrong. How does that feel? Always being wrong like that? Hmmm. I wouldn't know. Anyways. I guess, I get your point about how this does not fit in with the previous lists on this lovely blog, and I guess your right. But, this "list" has haunted me, I wrote it a long while ago, but, honestly, I was hasty and did not give it the proper attention it needed. So, it was only posted as a Blog for a beat. But, I, in good faith, could not stand behind it, and it was keeping me awake at night. So, it was promptly removed. This "List" is two years in the making, and to be honest, there are still some songs I question, (first day at school, both driving songs, death of loved one, and consoling).

But I have resigned myself to the knowledge that it will never be finished, well, because, my life is not finished. So, without delay, and with no more adu, my Personal Life Soundtrack.

You can find similar lists available as surveys all over the internet, but being the film nerd I am, I made quite a few additions, my life-movie was missing some key scenes.
