So I'm doing the ancient old 'movie soundtrack to your life' meme...which went around AGES ago, and I never got round to doing...
These tracks bear no particular significance...I didn't really think like that...I just thought they'd work very nicely and they're favourites of mine hehe!!!

On reflection, makes a movie full of high drama, theatre, debauchery and murder....oh dear oh dear!
High drama, theatre, debauchery, and murder are my life's goals! *laughs* I'm so glad you put up yours! Let's go, old-school goth rules! *cheers*
Sounds like a blast!!!
Seriously thinking scriptage now...
A cross between Mike Leigh's 'Naked' and Natural Born Killers perhaps?
By law your soundtrack should include:
Praise You - Fatboy Slim
some obscure 60s cobblers
American band you've never heard of, yet seem to be big over there
random Tori Amos track, chosen by pushing a pin into a list of her songs
Northern soul 'classic'
bad funk number, preferably featuring some old funk musician you've never heard of
John Zorn tuning up, oh sorry, that's the real piece
and then put a CD out with other tunes 'inspired by the motion picture', but which are really there to help shift a few more copies.
I'd buy yours, if I didn't already have the albums.
I even might have to make myself a copy now anyway!!!!! Might take a couple of cds tho...
Worth the bother, I'd say. Something you could stick on of an afternoon, knowing you're in for an hour-odd of quality sounds.
You know, if you want to trade a mix CD or two, you're more than welcome.
only recognised about half of those :(
