What’s your mating call?
---“Izuna" (Sigh)

A jock insults you, so you yell back:

You write a letter to Ben & Jerry’s, demanding this new flavor:
---“Supersonic (Dub Mix by F. Treichler)" (The Young Gods)

What’s your favorite thing about books?
---“About A Fire" (Nancy Sinatra)

Someone accuses you of being politically incorrect. You retort:
---“Gloridean" (Dead Can Dance)

THE SOUNDTRACK OF YOUR LIFE

Opening Credits:
Cry to Me - Heart You know, I like Heart and I'm bnot ashamed to say that, this actually works pretty well to begin a movie, especially if it features the younger Deschanel girl.

Waking Up:
Rock and Roll - Led Zep Again fairly decent really, nice hit the floor running kind of tune.

First Day of School:
The Last Song - Lynda Carter Yeah. Okay. Well I own a lot of Motown compilations and, in the 70s they put out some weird. ass. shit.

Falling in Love:
Enigma Variations - VIII (W.N.) Allegretto - John Elliot Gardiner (conducting), Royal Philharmonic Orchestra I'd maybe choose "In The South" instead but the Variations have a certain romanticism

Fight Song:
The Middle Kingdom for gu sheng, erhu, dizi, yangqin, pipa and percusion - Shan Di Orchestra The title sounds appropriate no? And it's  very Chinese sounding (being Chinese classical) but it'd be a fairly sedate slap fight more than anything else.

Breaking Up:
This Is Homeland - Nicholas Pike sort of gloomy since it comes from Sleepwalkers not sure it's the bes fit, unless one has broken up with a shapeshifter who's fatally allergic to cat scratches

Prom:
Rule Britannia - English String Orchestra, William Boughton (Conductor) Oh see that's quite awesome since when I hear Prom I don't think "School Dance"

Mental Breakdown:
Knockout Eileen - LL Cool J vs. Dexy's Midnight Runners Well, it's a mash-up which I suppose is a little crazy.

Driving:
Minor Blues - Django Reinhardt I'm driving, but I'm going to a nice country bistro with my chain smoking mistress, she's possibly played by the younger Deschanel girl.
Flashback:
Fellow Man - Kelli Ali Any flashback that features Kelli had better not feature much clothing.

Getting Back Together:
Piano Concerto #1 1st Movement - Michael Ponti, Piano, Prague Symphony Orchestra, Richard Kapp (conductor) Ok So a really dramatic/traumatic make up scene I'm thinking.

Wedding:
Missing You - Mary J. Blige See, I'm getting Married but I'm thinking of my chain smoking mistress.

Birth of Child:
15 Rounds For Jesus - Sister Wynona Carr The mother is having a bit of a hard labour, but is it my wife, or my chain smoking mistress?

Final Battle:
Girls and Boys - Blur The Battle takes place on Ibiza apprently.
 
Death Scene:
Going Up The Country - Canned Heat The Country being the Summerlands possibly

Funeral Song:
To Many Dicks On The Dancefloor - Flight of the Conchords Damn my horny brother, trying to score at my funeral, has he no respect?!!!

End Credits:
Beautiful People (live) - Melanie Like the Heart song, not really all that back and I also have no shame in saying I like Melanie. :)

  :D I guess high schools are the training wheels to RULING BRITANNIA!

Just curious, Tripe, how many national marches do you have on your MP3 player?

Well I do enjoy Rule Britannia, I actually have it as the end song of my running mix. I might be an American Citizen now but really I love RB.

It's not a march (though there are versions for marching bands) it's this version:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/qR_bJFpilu8" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/qR_bJFpilu8</a>

(I want Bryn's blazer)

I also have

Jerusalem,

Flower of Scotland

and

Men of Harlech (that one is actually a March proper. :))

in my list of favourite songs. :)
