...and Tom Cruise as John Oak Dalton

I haven't done a meme in a while, but this one, from comic book scribe Will Pfeiffer, cracked me the hell up. The important thing is not to cheat and make yourself seem cooler. With my MP3 player, not a problem.

Got this meme from my old pal Nik Dirga (now living in New Zealand, but still posting at his pop culture blog, Spatula Forum). It's called "If your life was a movie, what would the soundtrack be?," and here's how it works:

1. Open your music library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, iPod, etc)
2. Put it on shuffle
3. Press play
4. For every question, type the song that's playing
5 . When you go to a new question, press the next button 6. Don't lie and try to pretend you're cool.

Opening credits:
"Magic Man," Heart

Waking up:
"Operator," Jim Croce.

First day of school: "Shining Star," Earth, Wind, and Fire.

Falling in love: "
Little Less Conversation," Elvis Presley (remix).

First love song:
"Please Come to Boston," Dave Loggins.

Breaking up:
"Lost Without Your Love," Bread.

"Dancing Shoes," Nigel Olsson.

Mental Breakdown:
"Solitary Man," Neil Diamond.

Driving: "Hello, Darling," Conway Twitty.

Flashback: "Let's Get It On," Marvin Gaye.

Getting back together: "Domino," Van Morrison.

"Who's That Lady," The Isley Brothers.

Birth of Child:
"Spiders and Snakes," Jim Stafford.

Final Battle: "
Treat Her Like A Lady," Cornelius Brothers and Sister Rose.

Death Scene:
"Shelter from the Storm," Bob Dylan.

Funeral song: "
Tangled Up In Blue," Bob Dylan.

End Credits: "
Kiss An Angel Good Morning, " Charley Pride.

Reading back, it looks like I cheated, but I didn't. It's like playing "Dark Side of the Moon" and watching "The Wizard of Oz." It's just funny what happens. Try it and see!
