This mix probably won't get you laid...
Totally cribbed this one from TAN
The soundtrack to your life
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...
Waking Up: Hot Rod - Peaches
First Day at School: Crazy Time - Leela James
Falling In Love: You Can Kill A Revolution - The Wolfnote
Fight Song: Tell You Now - Le Tigre
Breaking Up: First Time Around (DFA Spring Radio Mix) - Skyy
Prom: Galang 05 - M.I.A.
Life: Night After Night - The Sounds
Mental Breakdown: Through The Dark - KT Tunstall

Flashback: Same Ghost Every Night - Wolf Parade
Wedding: Today I Hate Everyone - The Killjoys

Death Scene: Ain't Got No (I Got Life) - Nina Simone

End Credit: Trick Me - Kelis
I didn't cheat, it's just entirely coincidental than none of my mildly shameful iTunes tracks (Lindsay Lohan, K-Fed, Kelly Clarkson, et. al) made it to the list.
All in all, this is a pretty good mix. Some of the song choices are a bit funny (mostly just the 'waking up', 'wedding', and 'final battle') and others are oddly appropriate ('mental breakdown', 'flashback', 'death scene', and 'funeral song'). Weirdly enough, 'falling in love' is actually a song by my boss' band, although I had been a fan of theirs since way before I started working - just strange.
Although, for me, falling in love at this point would be nothing short of revolutionary, but crazier things have happened...
