Soundtrack

An interesting forward I got from my friend Meredith out in Rhode Island … You select songs to be the soundtrack of your life.

I like this because it reminds me of a discussion some of my friends and I always have about what our “Up at Bat” song would be if we were MLB players.

This one is harder to figure out … but I included links to listen to song samples if you feel like it. Some links will play the song directly, others are to sites where you scroll down and choose the song sample.

UPDATE: I changed all of the song links to play the song directly. Most are Windows Media Files, FYI. Listening to this now, I realize I have never made a “mix tape” just for myself and all music that reminded me of significant events and/or periods of my life. This was a pretty cool little project to put together and I might end up making a real version of this list some day soon.

************
If you feel like making your own list, after some trial and error, I found that you can find samples of almost every song on Amazon, then find the link to listen to the sample and right click it to see the properties of the song sample link for the exact link for the song to just play, rather than the website. Use this specific song sample link and it will pop up just like mine.

    Awesomeness…gonna have to work on my own when I have more time at work. Love today’s yahoo avatar, too!

    Awesome..new project to keep me busy at work. Did you come up with those categories or was that included. I can’t even think of songs for half of those…which is what makes it such a good new project!

    Ashley – Those categories were part of the forward. And they were hard … I’m not sure I would ever have thought of things like “secret love” or “mental breakdown” on my own … but now that I have songs for them, they fit.

    I should’ve added a rugby category too … maybe I’ll update it and add one.
