@Robert Gentel,
I can see where Bebel Gilberto got her musical genes from!
When the my money blues have ended that first album should be my next conquest if it happens to be available.

i like this game, but i have all podcasts and audiobooks on one ipod and music and movies on the other, so my choices on the music side are limited

me, too. I'm even thinking of getting a third one so I can put all the classical and jazz on one ad the rock and roll on another.

Why? You can listen to the music by playlist or even genre on most (basically anything other than the shuffle) iPods.

@Robert Gentel,
Why? Because my main iPod is full and I could free up a lot of space by taking off the other two genre.

Use the iTunes DJ function on iTunes. That should scramble your music collection into a random mix.

Just listened to Breaking Up: If I Can't Come Back--The Reigning Sound. Seems kind of punkishly appropriate.

Your driving/chase scene sounds like it might be a Judd Apatow comedy of errors with Too Late--Wire. Smile

I'm rebooting my own life's biopic right now. It's the big Hollywood thing to do with a well tread and overused franchise these days.

Opening Credits: Sick Muse by Metric;

Waking Up: The Very Thought of You by Wynton Marsalis.
That's a jarring transition. From grrl rock to melancholic jazz at it's best.

First Day At School: J.J. Quantz - Trio Sonata in C Minor - Allegro by The Deutz Trio;

Falling In Love: The Quality of Mercy by Michelle Shocked;

Breaking Up: Lady Eboshi from the Princess Mononoke score;

Prom: I Can't Be Cool from the Ghost in the Shell: SAC soundtrack.

A song that's ironically fitting for hipsters and people too cool for school.

Mental Breakdown: I've Been to Memphis by Lyle Lovett and his Large Band;

Driving: Sonatine: II. Mouvement de Menuet by the piano god Leon Fleisher;

Flashback: Fishermen, Strawberry And Devil Crab by Miles Davis;

Getting back together: Waiting in Vain by Annie Lennox.
Fittingly neurotic! Very Happy

Wedding: Charlie, Woody and You / Study #22... lesser known jazz by the pop piano maestro Bruce Hornsby;

Birth of Child: Bye, Baby Bunting - Golden Slumbers, a lullaby from the Lullabies: A Songbook Companion album of lullabies.
This was an actual coincidence not a manipulated song for this faux-cinematic event.

Swan song: Suffer the Children by the 90's progressive rock band Tears for Fears;

Death Scene: The Gypsy Wife by the legendary Leonard Cohen;

Funeral song: Where Time Stands Still by one of my all time favorite singer/songwriters, Mary Chapin Carpenter;

End Credits: Ashitaka And San, another piece from the Princess Mononoke score.
