Snarfed from colinmo. Making a movie soundtrack from your music collection...
- Open your mp3 library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, iPod, shortwave radio from Eastern Europe)
- Put it on shuffle (or random or whatever else it gets called)
- Press play
- For every section of the movie, type the song that's playing
- When you go to a new question, press the next button
- Don't lie and try to pretend you're cool
Ok, let's give this a try. I have been told I have notably ecclectic taste so this could get interesting.
- Opening title: Timo Maas - Schieber 1 (off Music for the Maases)[easy paced dancy track]. Not such a bad opener, really. Builds up with some interesting tones and samples. We could do an intro like the one from Romeo Must Die.
- Waking up: Morphine - A Head With Wings [ballsy saxophone-driven blues/rock sound]. Must be waking up with a hangover. If I'm doing an opening sequence to this track I guess I'm sucking down black coffee and cigarettes then jumping into a really big black american convertible.
- First day of school: Moby - Machete [high tempo dance with sort of ambient bridges and builds, then some almost tribal distorted lyrics]. Well I guess it seems like an adventure at first.
- Falling in love: Tea Party - Coming Home [guitar rock, big vocals]. Heh, interesting if you read the lyrics. Guess I met a cute brunette, hey.
- Fight song: Tea Party - Luxuria. Huh? Two Tea Party tracks in a row? :) ...and is this a couple fight or a biff?
- Breaking up: Pollution Volume 3 - Industrial Waste (Remix) [goa trance off Travelling]. From rock to serious bleep action. This is one interesting movie...
- Prom/High School Formal: Beastie Boys - We Got The. Well that sure would have beaten my real high school formal. Could it be a live show?
- Life's ok: The Cure - The Holy Hour (Group Home Demo) [this is a very raw demo recording which was re-recorded for an extremely moody album]. Be still gothlings, all is well ;) Well if we started with Morphine it doesn't seem too odd.
- Mental breakdown: The Cure - Pictures of You. OK, so iTunes "random" isn't. Apparently I'm believing that pictures are real, and I can feel them. Guess it's relatively appropriate! :)
- Driving: Johann - Same Same But Different [serious psytrance off Imagi:Nations Part 1 - Night]. This is going to be one seriously interesting drive. Get David Lynch in here, or maybe Terry Gilliam.
- Flashback: Coldplay - Daylight. Not such a bad flashback track.
- Getting back together: The Doors - Hello, I Love You. Aww :)
- Wedding: David Bowie - Golden Years. Hmm, that could even happen. Especially considering the ball scene from A Knights Tale that breaks into this track... we've always liked the way they do that. Mostly in an "amused" way.
- Birth of a child: The Beloved - Sweet Harmony [dreamy chill track off one of the MoS Chillout Sessions]. Cute I guess. Do we have to have a birth? Not in my movie, pal ;)
- Final battle: Moby - Alone [very long ambient track]. Very slow science fiction dogfight in space maybe? Maybe I'll come back at the end and hit random again [click click... The Prodigy - Speedway. Hmm. I think we're still in some kind of high speed scenario here :)].
- Funeral song: Minddrive - Soundcheque [big dance track off Ferry Corsten's Global Trancemissions]. Sweet, so it's not a wake it's a rave! There's an awesome idea. Bush doof, glowsticks, midnight burial...
- Shallow comment: The Future Sound of London - Central Industrial. "Shallow comment"?
- End credits: Gorillaz - O Green World [crazy sounding electronic/hiphop/something]. Well it certainly caps a weird movie. Did it have a dwarf in it? Maybe it was an art movie.
How did we get all the way through that without any industrial?
