Me gusta la guitarra, me gustas tu


If you use any, of the many social network sites to stay in touch with your friends, you have likely come across one of these silly surveys. I thought, since it's my birthday, I could get away with using one of these lame surveys to get the week off. Leave any complaints in the comments. /wink



IF YOUR LIFE WAS A MOVIE, WHAT WOULD THE SOUNDTRACK BE?



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...
7. When you're finished tag some other people to do it!



Opening Credits:
[Abe Vigoda - Don't Lie]

Abe Vigoda I got on recommendation from my brother. Not bad at all. I haven't had a ton of time to really get into them, but it's one of the greatest names for a band I have seen in sometime.

Klaxons - Gravity's Rainbow (Van She Remix)

The Turtles - So Happy Together (Baron Von Luxxury 'S You Remix)

Life:

[Manu Chao - Me Gustas Tu]

I love this song. It's catchy, and whenever I am lucky enough to find it on the jukebox, I play it. Mostly because it always will get someone to ask, "Who is this?"
...and you know how I love talking about music.

Birth Of Child:
Foo Fighters - Stranger Things Have Happened

Final Battle:
Mike Doughty - Ways + Means

Death Scene:

[Weezer - No Other One]

Probably Weezer doesn't need an introduction, although the Pinkerton album might not have shown up on your radar. It is widely considered to be a very underrated album that most people slept on. It has some great dark themes. I think it's brilliant. Rivers felt differently about it though:

“It’s a hideous record… It was such a hugely painful mistake that happened in front of hundreds of thousands of people and continues to happen on a grander and grander scale and just won’t go away. It’s like getting really drunk at a party and spilling your guts in front of everyone and feeling incredibly great and cathartic about it, and then waking up the next morning and realizing what a complete fool you made of yourself.” – Rivers Cuomo, Entertainment Weekly, 2001


Funeral Song:
Big Bad Zero - Crumble

End Credits:
The Matches - Superman

buy some music. it's ok. i promise it will be worth it.
