Life-Movie-Soundtrack Meme

So, here’s how it works:
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…because you’re not!
7. Stick the soundtrack on your mp3 player and listen away during the day.

Thank God SClub 7 and Tom Jones didn't come up. I'd be really embarrassed for you to know I had those, and I wouldn't like to listen to them all day either.

Birth of a child - Devil Woman???? Terrifying! I expect you've seen Rosemary's Baby, nuff said :)

I'm slightly disappointed that S Club didn't come up! See you later x

KAREN said...

I'll overlook Cliff, as I had Elvis on mine!

I used to LOVE Everything But the Girl - whatever happened to them??

At least you didn't tell us about SClub 7 and Tom Jones so your secret's safe... :)

What a Wonderful World - oh yes, I'll request that at my funeral too. Beautiful song!

KAREN said...

PS - There's a little award for you over at mine :o)

Haha! Free bird was 'my' song, many moons ago! Great meme, Leigh, I love It's a Wonderful World too.

Just popped over to let you know it's Blogger Appreciation Day (courtesy of Darren Rowse, link on my blog) It's a little late in the day, I know, but just wanted to let you know that you are appreciated!

Have a good week!

:o)

Kerry - I hadn't seen Rosemary's Baby (and I don't think I want to, having read the blurb on imdb!), but what with all that banshee wailing going on, Devil Woman's a perfect track title!

Helen - No comment!!!

Karen - Oh dear! What's wrong with Elvis then?
(Thank you very much for my award!)

Jen - Yeah, I'm relieved about that...

Womagwriter - I actually bought a 'single CD' for that one (during the Guiness ads, I guess). Yes, beautiful song.

Moondreamer - Thank you for the comment! I must say that you too are much appreciated. I love your blog. When I'm feeling stressed, it really calms me down!!

Oh I'll have to have a go at this. I'll post the results on my blog later.
