I thought this sounded like fun when I read about it at More Cowbell.

1. Open your library on your Zen or Ipod or other MP3 player
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
Here we go:

Opening Credits: You Pulled Me Out – The Greencards. I love these guys: oddly enough, a bluegrass band with two Australians and a Brit. Take it from me, there is some very hip bluegrass out there (and we all know SAHM-of-eight are the arbiters of hip).

Waking up: “Are You Lonesome Tonight?” – Elvis. Wrong time of day, but a classic song nonetheless.

Falling in love: “Smoke Gets in Your Eyes” – The Platters. My dad would be so proud.

Fight song: “Deep as Your Pocket” – Tres Chicas

Break up song: “Talkin’ About a Home” – Chris Isaak (ironically, the antithesis of a break-up song)

Making Up: “Recipe for Love” – Harry Connick, Jr.

Life’s Okay: “Golden Ticket” – Adrienne Young

Mental Breakdown: “Adrift” – Barenaked Ladies

Driving: “Russian Christmas Overture” – John Fahey

Flashbacks: “Home” – Michael Buble

Happy Dance: “Maybe Baby” – Buddy Holly. OH MY WORD, would my daddy be proud!

Regret: “Fast Cars and Freedom” – Rascal Flatts

Final Battle: “Ghost in this House” – Alison Krauss. If I could have one wish – and I didn’t have to use it on something like world peace or a year’s worth of diapers – I would awake with the voice of Alison Krauss. Secondly, I would find out that tummy thermage is a 100% safe procedure and a brilliant dermatologist wanted to give it to me for free, because after eight kids I am surely the poster-child. This discussion, however, is beyond the scope of this post.

Death Scene: “Crazy Love” – Ray Charles with Van Morrison

Final Credits: “Can’t You Hear Me Callin’ “- Crooked Still. More hip bluegrass (not a contradiction in terms).
