Just been thinking of what songs i would use for events or stages in my life, and the idea of designing a soundtrack to your life is pretty cool...

So what songs would you choose to make a soundtrack of your life?!!

This is a tough one:
I was born in 1982

1982-1987 - Yellow Sumberine by the Beatles, I just remember it from a very early age.

1987-1990 - T'Pua China in your hand - I remember first hearing this song in a pub when I was 5. That pub was sadly ilegaly knocked down last year to make way for flats.

1990-1992 - Cliff Richard's Miss You Nights, my mum is an avid Cliff Fan and I will always remember this song because I saw him live twice in this peroid

1992-1995- Probably Eternal's Just a step from heaven - I just have memories of that song from this perioud

1995-1996 - Take That - Back for good - Again the memories

1996 - 1999- Bee Gee's first of may, this was the time I started to get intot he Bee Gee's heavily

1999-2001 - ABBA's dancing queen, I became obsesssed with song

2001 - now Joy Division's Love Will Tear Us Apart - This song just fit my current taste of music mood perfectly.

Nice idea for a thread

Early years aged 7-11: The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Moody Blues, ABBA, Simon and Garfunkel, The Kinks, The Who, Jimi Hendrix.
- I was heavily influenced by my parents and i remember listening to their old vinyl records when i was small. Also had an ABBA GOLD cassette tape i used to make them play in the car

Middle years: Coming of Britpop: Oasis, Blur, Suede, Pulp, the Verve.
- Loved listening to them, and still do occassionaly, better than the spice girls

Period of wayward thinking: Limp Biscuit, Linkin Park, Eminem
- Thankfully this period did not last long, and those records now belong to the friends i borrowed them from, or are property of my brother.

Modern times: Coldplay, Muse, BRMC, The Music, Polyphonic Spree, Datsuns, Vines, Aqualung, Libertines, Kings of Leon, Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
- Much happier times

Simon and Garfunkel, I knew I missed one out, I would say that was 2002-2003 when my dad bought me the Old Friends box set, its been one of my most played albums since I got it.

i can't do it in different periods, more different moods.

when i'm kinda sad
  • REM- everybody hurts, losing my religion
  • linkin park- numb
  • good charlotte- hold on
  • feeder- forget about tomorrow
  • puddle of mudd- blurry
  • travis- why does it always rain on me?
  • the verve- bittersweet symphony

when i'm happy
  • the foundations- build me up buttercup (don't ask)
  • feeder- buck rogers
  • tenatious d- tribute (just cracks me up)
  • lostprophets- last train home/cry me a river (i just love that single)

when i'm all loved up
  • train- drops of jupiter
  • ash- shining light
  • dido- here with me)

when i'm not all loved up (and anti-men)
  • dido- white flag (when it came out i was going through a really nasty break up)
  • david gray- this years love, say hello wave goodbye
  • alanis morisette- flinch, so unsexy
  • the calling- addrienne
  • no doubt- don't speak, ex-girlfriend

general tunes that are jus me
  • dido- no angel
  • no doubt- it's my life
  • amy studt- just a little girl


oooh far too many!

10: Never Ever, All Saints : Loved my new combats
11: Fragma: Miracle : I was one of the first people to hear that popular song... I was so proud.
12: Misfit, Amy Studt : Was going through my rebel stage.
13: Hot in here, Nelly and Milky, Just the way you are: Spent all my time outdoors and was dressing a little more 'hot in here'
14: I'm coming up, Amerie: Thought I was pretty cool at this age.
15-16: Well my favourite song right now is Queen, don't stop me now. I'm feeling quite determined.

When I was little I remember a mixture of stuff like Berlin-Take My Breath Away (that makes me cry still!), Duran Duran, Wham, Earth Wind and Fire and loads of Johnny Mathis and Dionne Warwick.
So I'd have to say, Wake Me Up and Going Home.

Then primary school is a mixture of Take That, Bad Boys Inc and Smurfs Go Pop. Oh and Whigfield Saturday Night. Oh and Boyzone

Secondary School...that's a long time..year 7-Boyzone-Words
year 8-E17-Hey Child, Year 9-Atb-9pm(till I come), Year 10-Green Day-Basket Case & Britney! Year 11-Sum 41-Makes No Difference.

The entirety of 6th form a mixture of System of a Down's Chop Suey, Sum 41, Greenday etc etc etc oh and Build Me Up Buttercup. With a bit of random SR-71 and Good Charlotte thrown in. Oh and mest



Bit random, but if I had a film of my life made I'd know what songs to put in

Have to say, what a cool idea for a thread!

My favourite three albums of all time are Feeder's Comfort in Sound. Every song on it has meaning and different themes are contained within it. Tends to be in my CD player a lot of the time as it suits my ever changing mood!
Second favourite album is No Doubt- The Singles. Think they are a fab band and just love their music so much!
Third favourite album is Funeral For a Friend. Again, love their music and the album shows them in many different ways.

infants - Kylie - Locamotion (sp?) , those were the days
Juniors - E17 - stay another day, that song really really moved me,
Lower school - Nirvana - the one with "im so happy coz today ive found my friends" , reminds me of happy times as a rebel.
Middle school - dj pied piper and the master of ceramonies - do you really like it? - was the song we left school to in year 11
Upper school - greenday - time of your life, went to the concert as our leaving doo for 6th form....sums up how i felt at the time.
Now - i am the one and only (dont know who its by) ..self explanitary!

love Katy ***

really cool thread...
the soundtrack that most fitted my life would probably be made up of
"easy like sunday morning" people- things I heard my parents play and I still love..
bob dylan, joni mitchell, jimi hendrix, the rolling stones (esp. "wild horses"), the beatles, aretha franklin, the supremes, procul harem, stevie wonder... anything where the funk brothers feature: a lotta tamla motown

baby - 4 years - thomas the tank engine intro tune as i used to watch every single day!

4 - 8 years - teenage mutant hero turtles tune for same reason and loved it. i used be very hyper activity and rushed around being adventurous!

got more mature after 8 years:

8 - 12 years - i started listening to RnB and hiphop coz of by bro:

10 years - angel of mine - monica cause i had a primary school gf. we were quite sweet lol!

11 years - Cali Love - 2pac as i always tried to be cool to impress girls hahaha! failed miserably!

at around 13 years puff daddy - il b missing you coz my cousin died.

14 - 15 years - u got it bad - usher - missed oppurtunity !

16 years - celebrations - beacause GCSE had finished. a big relief!

17 - 18 years - dunno. think of a sad song, cause il be leaving friends to go off to uni. but the song should reflect a beginning of a new era in my life plus reviewing my past life after turning 18. thats how i feel right now.
