Soundtrack To Your Life

Let iTunes decide the soundtrack to your life – no really, why not?!

OK, so I totally pinched this from julie at MOG, but I think it’s the sort of thing that you should share (and this stops me from cluttering everyone’s email inbox).

If your life were a soundtrack, what would the music be?
1. open your library (iTunes, winamp, media player, Zen, iPod)
2. put it on shuffle
3. press play
4. for every question, type the name of whatever song comes up
5. new question—press the next button6. don’t lie and try to pretend you’re cool
