    Okay, I was listening to tunes the other day and I started thinking what the music would be like in a movie made about my life. For each section, here's what I can picture accompanying my movie:

    Opening Scene;
    Ain't That A Kick in the Head - Dean Martin

    Early Scenes;
    That'll Be the Day - Buddy Holly
    The Best is Yet to Come - Frank Sinatra
    Roadhouse Blues - The Doors

    Middle Scenes;
    If I Should Fall From Grace - The Pogues
    Keep Fishing - Weezer
    Old Time Rock and Roll - Bob Seger
    Born on the Bayou - CCR
    King of the Road - Dean Martin
    Mambo Italiana - Dean Martin
    Somebody to Love - Jefferson Airplane
    Feelin' Groovy - Simon and Garfunkel

    Ending Scenes;
    The Pusher - Steppenwolf
    Angie - Rolling Stones
    A Day in the Life - Beatles
    Fool on the Hill - Beatles

    Final Scene;
    I Have but One Heart - Dean Marting

    Closing Credits;
    Buddy Holly - Weezer

    Of course, I imagine any movie about my life would be directed by Quentin Tarantino and Martin Scorsese, star Kevin Spacey, Ed Norton, Robert Deniro and Joe Pesci. Might get a tad expensive - but I'm worth it damn it!

    So what's yours? I tried to use as little Beatles/Stones music as I could, but I had to throw in a couple!

    It all depends on how to shoot the film; the above "Comedy" soundtrack is for the lighthearted, two-star, $20m offbeat comedy starring actors from bad television sketch shows.

    More lists later; this could be done with individual bands as well: Belle & Sebastian, Styx, or Floater at first thought. Peter Gabriel, maybe, as well.

    I'll give some thoughts to the "family drama" and the "tragedy" version of the movies; I'll deal with the action film only later if people still care.

    My film would be a rather obscure work of a paranoid art; somewhat like Lars Von Triesen's Dancer in the Dark. Of course, that means I would assume a role similar to Bjork....and that is a good thing.

    Electioneering- Radiohead
    Bonnie & Clyde '97- Tori Amos
    Second Suite in F- Gustav Holst
    Joga- Bjork
    El Scorcho- Weezer

    Final Scene
    Movement IV- Shostakovich's 4th Symphony
