  another forgotten old thread :)

go on have fun... compile a soundtrack of your life :)

and if possible,
give reasons why did u choose those songs?
like thoughts and feelings and reasons you'll find on an album's sleeve or something like that.

and what would the album's cover and design and title be?

  hard isn't it?

this was mine 2 years back. (taken from the archives haha.)

i'm trying to compile one 2 years down the road...

1)merry christmas, mr lawrence 0 ryuchi sakamoto
this song never fails to bring back a lot of memories which i try to suppress everytime i play it. sigh
2) world in my eyes - (depeche mode) btut i prefer the cover by the cure.
"let me take you on a trip... around the world and back, and you wont have to move you just sit still...
let me show u the world in my eyes" *grin* i guess ha says it all
3) sadness - enigma (violent remix by NIN)
order vs chaos. this song has a nice blend of it. well this goes on in my head every single second.
4) waiting for the night - portishead
even though i'm a beach bum. but i prefer the night. the night brings out what the day hides... :)
5) gabriel - lamb
6) gorecki - lamb
i just love lamb. these two songs well... meant something to me.
7) kiss the rain - billy myers
the lyrics just means a lot :)
8) save me - aimee man.
when i saw this scene in magnolia when this song is played... that was how i felt. it was one of the most powerful scenes from a movie and i can actually feel that the characters was going throught what i was going through.
9) ode to the lonely heart - sugar ray.
'nuff said ~lol. it's such a surf band ... i used to drive up to the beach for my surfing sessions with sugar ray playing at top volume...
10) at the river - groove armada.
well. the second time we broke up (yes second ~LOL) i spent many nights alone at the beach, and this helped to sooth the pain.
11) loving each day - ronan keating
the title says it all :)
12) try to remember - brothers four.
an oldie. i call this my memory invoker :)
13) the rainbow connection.
someday we'll find it :)
a favourtie song from my chidhood days
14) superman - five for fighting.
people sometimes see me as happy-go-lucky and all. and it surprises them that i do hurt. well. i'm only human *grin*
15) lex aeterna - kronos quartet.
(track 32 of requiem for a dream OST)
listen to it. just listen to this song. :) and you'll know why...
16) a plain morning - dashboard confessional
reminds me of a lot of things and how i felt back then...
17) do what you have to do - sarah mclachlan.
again the song and lyrics. what i go through every night
18) someday we know - new radicals.
yes, someday i'll know....

  Hard to say.
Probably a mix of songs by Sophia, Nada Surf, Thursday, Glassjaw, Coldplay, Radiohead, Starsailor, Bush, Nirvana, Oceansize, Elbow, blablablabla.
Don't know really. Really depends on the mood i'm in. (not that i have such violent moodswings, but sometimes things just happen...)

I picked N17 by the sawdoctors because it's such a happy, whistful, travelling song and i'm always between two places on a trian and that's the perfect song for those occaisons.

Positively 4th st. by Bob Dylan because it's just a great alzy summer song for me, it's the kind of song i would ahve moved into one of my several hosues listening to.

Kite U2- Just a great sad song that's also kind of uplifting

Mystery of da Chessboxin by the Wu tang clan- know it off by heart used to sing it all the time with Lee back when we lived in number 47

Blister in the sun- Violent Femmes- Me and Peter used to have great fun with this in parties, him strumming away and me singing at the top of my lungs

Johnny Cash, the man in black_ I feel like johnny sometimes

Paul Simon- you can call me al- Timeless syntheiser enhanced classic cant stop thinking of Chevy chase

Shane MacGowan and the Popes the Song with no name- makes me think of Cath and how bad i have been to past girlfriends

Pavement- And carrot rope- Such a sunny happy melody

Vitetnam song- Remind me of when we first started getting to know tim and his buddies last year before we made the Zombie movie

All the Pogues songs- for happy times living in no. 45

Norweigan Wood- for eluding me until i got Kazaa, and being the best beatles song in the world, also makes me think of the book by Murakami

If i could name the album it would have to be Walk cause of the legendary (but rubbish) album i wrote in the last year of high school.

The cover would have a snow covered field and footprints leading off onto the horizon with a blue sky ahead or..

It would be me and the guys dressed as old men sitting at Dempseys bar drinking and smoking.

>I noticed you really like Thursday...As do I, you should cheak out the pics of when I saw them...

So you were the one keeping them away from Europe so long! Finally gonna see them May 14th, supported by Aerogramme. *bouncybouncy* If the show's as good/energetic as your pics promise, i'll (again) be wasted when i try to get back home...
