Your Life in 10 Songs

Discussion in 'THREAD ARCHIVES' started by Astaroth, Mar 22, 2012.

  1. We all have music we like, but sometimes we have songs that really speak to us. Some of you may be used to picking theme songs for your characters; what I'd like you to do is similar, but the "character" is you, and I'd like to see the story of your life illustrated in 10 songs (in chronological order!).

    You can explain your choices, or leave the music to speak for itself.

    Here are my ten.

    The story of my life. (open)
    1. Poe - Hey Pretty


    2. Coldplay - Don't Panic

  12. Well, here goes:

    1. Wherever I May Roam - Metallica
    2. Black No. 1 - Type O Negative
    3. Up All Night - Hinder
    4. Numb - Linkin Park

    The first song could very easily be put as every other song as I have moved so many times in my life I almost can't count the places I've been. Because of this I have a very hard time making new friends and an even worse track record with men. Until now I can happily say. Number 9 goes to my current companion and number ten belongs to my parents which have recently pretty much shunned me.
  13. YAY! My very first post and I already get to play drama queen! This is awesome! So here's my life in ten (very tricky to pick) songs:

    1. Alive and Kicking - Simple Minds
    2. Baby I'm a Star - Prince
    3. Last in Line - Dio
    4. Magic Man - Heart
    5. Hold Me Now - Thompson Twins
    6. Two Out of Three - Meatloaf
    7. Here I Go Again - Whitesnake
    8. Stars - Simply Red
    9. My Own Worst Enemy - Lit
    10. Never Surrender - Corey Heart
  14. This song also feels pretty applicable to my life sometimes.

  15. I had to really think about it for a few days. XD Cause there's a LOT of songs I have applied to my life. Picking 10 was tricky.

    1. Bon Jovi - It's My Life
    2. Bon Jovi - Have a Nice Day
    3. Natasha Bedingfield - Pocket Full of Sunshine
    4. Whitesnake - Here I go Again
    5. Miley Cyrus - Can't Be Tamed
    6. L'ame Immortelle - Rearranging
    7. Three Days Grace - I hate Everything About You
    8. Poets of the Fall - Someone Special
    9. Stereomud - Perfect Self
    10. George Michael - Freedom 90

    Most of these songs are positive and inspirational. I have always found myself most drawn to those to help make myself feel better during rough points. O___O But ever so often a darker song would reflect a feeling I had so strongly, that it's there.

    There are SO many more songs on teh Diana sound-track to life. t____t
  16. In no particular order, in the form of artist - title.:

    1. Looptroop Rockers - Professional Dreamer

    2. Nine Inch Nails - Something I Can Never Have

    3. Bill Withers - Ain't No Sunshine

    4. Kansas - Dust In The Wind

    5. Grieves - Light Speed

    6. Jester - Crossing The Street

    7. Mac Lethal - Suitcase

    8. Scarface - Smile (feat. Tupac)

    9. Promoe - Headache

    10. Cecil Otter - Demon Girl
