The Soundtrack of My Life

>

This weekend I saw the film “Easy A.”  Once again, I feel like Hollywood is stealing parts of my life.  The main character looks like me, dresses like me, acts like me and relives some of my own life experiences.  So either the person who wrote this knows me or there are others out there in the world who are like me–scary thought.

So today I started to think, “If my life was turned into a movie, what would be on the soundtrack?”  This began a four hour procrastination event on this fine Sunday.  I went through the majority of my CDs and what I had on itunes.  I wound up with 204 songs–an anthology.  So I decided to spend some time, procrastinating, so I could organize and eliminate some unnecessary songs.  I’m sure you are all wondering what songs I picked–or you are procrastinating as well.  I will happily share my song list with you–and for those of you who REALLY know me, every song on this list will make complete sense with the different parts of my life.  I made sure it had the perfect flow.
