My iPod Soundtrack

Much as I want to write something pithy, my brain has shut off after two hours of an extremely difficult software engineering exam. I literally can't think anymore. And there's one more exam to go through tomorrow. Thank goodness it's only a mock exam.

To fill in this space, I'm just going to take on a meme from Jute's Friendster blog. The theme of this meme is a movie soundtrack. Instructions:

1. Open your music library.
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.

And here are my results:
Opening Credits: True Colors by Phil Collins

Waking Up: Listen to Your Heart by Roxette

Falling In Love: Give My Your Love by Linda Herrick (from "City Hunter")

Fight Scene: Being With You by Smokey Robinson

Breaking Up: Talking in Your Sleep by The Romantics

Life's Okay: Queen of Hearts by Juice Newton

Mental Breakdown: Owner of a Lonely Heart by Yes

Driving: Morning Has Broken by Cat Stevens

Flashbacks: Fire by Pointer Sisters

Regretting: Harden My Heart by Quarterflash

Final Battle: Written in the Stars by Elton John

Death Scene: The One That Really Matters by Survivor

End Credits: Something Happened On the Way to Heaven by Phil Collins

That should also give a (somewhat embarrassing) sample of what's on my music player. Some other bits of trivia: it seems I have 359 songs on my iPod. My iPod is a blue-colored Mini with 4GB, similar to the picture above, given to me by my Dad.


  1. I can see that you were pretty much a kid in the eighties... You had nightmares first time you've seen Jacko in the Thriller video on MTV and you'd been watching Back to the Future. Ha ha ha!!!

  2. Hi, Golda: good to hear from you!

    Hi, Howling: Oh, yeah! I am so very Eighties. But more specifically, I am still very much a Survivor fan.

  3. The music you listened to befere you were 20 usually becomes the music you listen to for the rest of your life. :-)

  4. So true. And it only means...I'm old! So what's it for you, Roy? Nirvana? :-)

  5. My favorites playlist has some Depeche Mode, Pearl Jam, Savage Garden, and yes, Nirvana as well. :-)
