    I Make My Own Soundtrack

    I love doing something or thinking about something and knowing a song that fits perfectly into the moment.  Or being in a situation and imagining a song in the background.  In fact, I make this happen.  Sometimes, (actually, a lot) I play my iPod while walking...

    I Completely Agree

    a lot of times i think i can hear it, playing softly in the background, and there are other times where i know exactly what song would fit perfectly to the situation. i think it would make life a lot easier if it had a soundtrack to counterpoint your emotions

    Not a Musical

    Not like a musical, but more like a film. So I wish my life had a film score playing as I go through it. Yep.

    I Play It When I Can

    Which is pretty much 24/7, lol. Would be more interesting if I actually had something going on in my life to put a soundtrack to, but hey. Just means I got more time to listen to my favorite music, lol.

    Just Like In the Movies.

      In a way it would be really cool to have a sound track follow you through life.  If something bad was going to happen the music would get creepy sounding.  So you then would have a choice, do I continue on to face "the music" or do I choose to find a...

    You're Never Truly Alone..............

    I already have songs playing in my head through out the day. It would be nice if someone else took care of it for me. Music, especially played at the right moments can add so much more to whatever you're feeling. It can bring new highs as well as lows. But lyrics that fit show...

    Look Out!

    Like in the movies... you always know when something scary or tragic is going to happen, by the musical score! I would like my life to be musically scored, so I would always know when the perverts were approaching! Or the really scummy guys! I can hear, "dun, dun, dun!"...

    expression Through Music

    Once when I was in love as a young woman, there was a song that seemed to fit my relationship. It was "Linger" by the Cranberries.  As I listened to that song I could "see" the stages of my relationship play out with this guy.  I think it was the first time that ever happened...

    Right now the song playing in my soundtrack is

    "Yellow Light" by Of Monsters and Men. The song has a very gentle, chilled vibes melody but when you listen to the lyrics you will hear that there is fear and danger impending. I think it may end in death (in the song). That's how I feel right now, I'm afraid and feel like I'm...

    I'd love to be rich enough to pay the woman who does the "la la las" for the show Gilmore Girls to follow me around all day and sing 'la la las' at crucial moments or whenever I enter or exit a room. If I could pick a soundtrack to my life, it would definitely be...

    Like a Movie.

    I always, being my analytical self, wondered why there is always the perfect song for the perfect moment in the characters' lives in movies.  I also wondered why we didn't have that in the real world.  Would we be able to hear the songs in our own heads??! ...

    My Composer Of Choice

    I wouldn't mind my life's soundtrack composed by Thomas Newman. I became a fan after I began watching HBO's drama Six Feet Under and was taken by how awesome the theme song was. If he still doesn't sound familiar, he did scores for: American Beauty, The Help, Finding Nemo, WALL-E...
