If your life was a soundtrack, what would the soundtrack be?
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…
So I searched around the net and the categories differ a little, but I went and picked the best ones that would describe an epic life.
Also: when doing this, I decided that I would use my favorites playlist (instead of using my main playlist that has lots of non-interesting BG music), and take the test 3 times, and pick the best soundtrack. 3rd time's a charm.
So here's my epic life soundtrack, with links to the songs on youtube, if they are available:
Wake Up - Rage Against the Machine
Good Riddance (Time of Your Life) - Green Day
First day of school:
Good Luck - Basement Jaxx
Falling in Love:
Twilight (A. Piano Version) - Densha Otoko soundtrack
Chanto Tsukandemasukara - Densha Otoko soundtrack
Smack My Bitch Up - The Prodigy
Layla - Derek and the Dominoes
Sally's Song - The Nightmare Before Christmas soundtrack
Dies Irae (Requiem) - Giuseppe Verdi
Good, or Don't Be - Neon Genesis Evangelion soundtrack
Champagne Supernova - Oasis
Getting Back Together:
Bran-new Lovesong - the pillows
Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger - Daft Punk
Birth of Child:
Go the Distance - Disney's Hercules soundtrack
Twilight - Electric Light Orchestra
Moment of Triumph:
The Legendary Theme (album) - Gitaroo Man soundtrack
Night Skies - Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire soundtrack
Air - Bach
San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Flowers in Your Hair) - Scott McKenzie
I couldn't find online versions of my triumph and death scenes, which is unfortunate since they're 2 nice fitting songs. Legendary theme is an electric guitar duet, and night skies includes the sweet Imperial March and Force themes from Star Wars.
The songs that probably don't fit their categories are my fight, life, and wedding songs. And my mental breakdown song is 37 minutes...
All these songs are favorites of mine (thus in my faves playlist duh), but if I had to pick the songs that fit their categories best, I'd have to say the falling in love, flashback, getting back together, final battle (because I can't get enough of Twilight), and funeral songs.

I learned how to colour stuff in Flipbook thanks to A Rotten Habit, so I decided to try out the skillz on an old animation. Didn't really feel like making it a complete piece with a panning BG, an object and dust fx, but I'm satisfied with this final version. I had this ready before I came to Miramichi, but since I was putting in sound fx, I thought of getting a voice for her as well, and I just got the final track today. I thought it'd be cool to employ a voice actress from the net, and I knew a big flash submission site like Newgrounds would have plenty of talent.
And 'tis there that I found Rina-chan to be a sweet french maid voice. Check out her demo of the soul calibur girls if you're interested; she has a great range.
