procrastination before work <3  

So, here’s how it works:

1. Open your 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 (feel free to annotate, since snarky commentary is half the fun)
5. When you go to a new question, press the next button

Opening credits:

You Make My Dreams Come True -Hall and Oates

What I want, you've got
And it might be hard to handle
But like the flame that burns the candle
The candle feeds the flame
Yeah, yeah, what I've got's full stock
Of thoughts and dreams that scatter
You pull them all together
And how, I can't explain

This is already shaping up to be a very positive movie. I hope this means that the movie opens to a happy, squeaky clean neighbourhood from all those 80s-early 90s movies. :'D

Waking up:

Footloose -Kenny Loggins

Loose, footloose
Kick off your Sunday shoes
Oowhee, Marie
Shake it, shake it for me
Whoa, Milo
C'mon, c'mon let go
Lose your blues
Everybody cut footloose

Note: I am NEVER chipper enough for Footloose to be playing first thing in the morning. That's how you know this is a movie.

First day of school:

Blower's Daughter -Damien Rice

And so it is
Just like you said it would be
Life goes easy on me
Most of the time

And so it is
The shorter story
No love, no glory
No hero in her skies

I can't take my eyes off of you
I can't take my eyes off of you...

...Okay ONE: Why am I going to school in this movie? I don't like this movie anymore.
TWO: It sounds like I have a stalker.
and THREE: ...I can't hear this song without thinking of Lauren. ♥

Falling in love:

I Can't Believe My Heart -Susan Egan (Hercules soundtrack)

Just when I thought
I had it figured
That life's a game you cannot win
He comes in and changes all the rules

What I've been taught
I learned the hard way
That life and love are never just
And if you trust you're just one of the fools

And now I can't believe my heart
It's saying don't resist him
That I've been on my guard too long

I can't believe my heart
Surrendered when I kissed him
And told me you're like what I knew
A sad but true is wrong?

If life is worth
The disappointment
I haven't seen one reason yet
Until I met the boy who smiles for free

Upon this Earth
There's no one like him
He sees the girl I long to be
Making even me believe in me

OH LOOK. MY MOVIE IS SUDDENLY A DISNEY MOVIE. Specifically, Hercules. I think I must go through a magic portal at some point. Either that, or "going to school" is like "going to your lesson in...idk baking or pottery class or something because you aren't in your regular life here" in this movie.

Also, it's super creepy that I got this song randomly for that particular part of the meme. How Disney of it. O_o

Love scene:

Kingsword - Heather Dale

The Kingsword will stand in its scabbard of granite
The quicksilver forged in the pools of the sky
A rumour explained by the one who began it
A boy's hand will grasp it, a man's raise it high

Son of the dragon, of night and the slaughter
Whose wisdom his unshaven youth will belie
Will wake from her slumber the lake's only daughter
To answer the calling she cannot deny

...........Oh. Well that just ruined me forever and I will not be able to listen to this song without thinking about that ever again. In other news: I apparently have medieval fantasy sex in this movie. This is acceptable.

Breaking up:

Wreck Of The Day - Anna Nalick

Driving away from the wreck of the day
And the light's always red in the rear-view
Desperately close to a coffin of hope
I'd cheat destiny just to be near you


'Cause love doesn't hurt so I know I'm not falling in love
I'm just falling to pieces


And maybe I'm not up for being a victim of love
When all my resistance will never be distance enough

...AGAIN: super creepy that shuffle would give me this song for this section. Also, this makes me sad. :'( Why are we breaking up when we obviously are on An Epic Fantasy Adventure? This movie is terrible.

Life is good:

Taking Chances - Celine Dion

Don't know much about your life.
Don't know much about your world, but
Don't want to be alone tonight,
On this planet they call earth.

You don't know about my past, and
I don't have a future figured out.
And maybe this is going too fast.
And maybe it's not meant to last,

But what do you say to taking chances,
What do you say to jumping off the edge?
Never knowing if there's solid ground below
Or hand to hold, or hell to pay,
What do you say?

........Things are great again so Celine Dion plays? I'm so Canadian it hurts. This scene better be filmed with me in a toque, eating poutine while in line at Tim Hortons while carrying a hockey stick.
(I'm really curious as to why this is on my playlist to be added to shuffle in the first place, while we're discussing this)

Actually, listening to this song more closely it sounds like I have a rebound romance in Canada. SO I GO HOME AFTER MY EPIC FANTASY ROMANCE DIES. See, I'm trying to come up with a plot 8D

Mental Breakdown:

Poker Face - Lady Gaga

I'm not even putting the lyrics for this up here. Really, I don't think there's any song more appropriate for a mental breakdown.


Wild Wild West - Will Smith

(Wild Wild West)
When I roll into the
(Wild Wild West)
When I stroll into the
We going straight to the Wild Wild West (the Wild Wild West)

Awwwwww yeah. I love this song sfm I don't even care. And I love this movie whole bunches too (IT ALSO HAS KENNETH BRANAGH AND KEVIN KLINE IN IT). This must be that part of the movie where I recharge my self-esteem and...I don't even know. I just know that I love this song and it would definitely cheer me up.


The Beginning Is The End Is The Beginning - Smashing Pumpkins

Send a heartbeat to
The void that cries through you
Relive the pictures that have come to pass
For now we stand alone
The world is lost and blown
And we are flesh and blood disintegrate
With no more to hate

Is it bright where you are
Have the people changed
Does it make you happy you're so strange
And in your darkest hour
I hold secrets flame
We can watch the world devoured in it's pain

...Well. So much for that happiness. :T ...OH WAIT:

Time has stopped before us
The sky cannot ignore us
No one can separate us
For we are all that is left
The echo bounces off me
The shadow lost beside me
There's no more need to pretend
Cause now I can begin again

Okay so. Tragic flashback of Zach Snyder proportions, and I choose to believe that this last bit = reunion with Epic Fantasy Guy with the kingsword

Getting back together:

Feeling Good - Michael Buble

It's a new dawn
It's a new day
It's a new life
For me
And I'm feeling good

...ahahahahaha. Again: so Canadian. But classy as hell reunion, amirite?


Headlock - Imogen Heap

Distant flickering, its greener scenery,
This weathers bringing it all back again.
Great adventures, faces and condensation,
I'm going outside and take it all in.

You say too late to start, got your heart in a headlock

...This is the least romantic wedding song ever. XD And this bit:

I'm walking, you've been hidding,
And you look half dead half the time.
Monitoring you, like machines do,
You've still got it, I'm just keeping an eye

...I think I should have stuck with the Celine Dion dude. XD

Birth of Child:

The Mystic's Dream - Loreena McKennitt

A clouded dream on an earthly night
Hangs upon the crescent moon
A voiceless song in an ageless light
Sings at the coming dawn

...Woah woah wait. I have a baby in this movie? To...chanting and Mists of Avalon music? This movie just got really, really weird. I think I'm having a magic baby. Or the most painless labor in history.

Final Battle:

Suddenly I See - KT Turnstall

And she's taller than most
And she's looking at me
I can see her eyes looking from a page in a magazine
Oh she makes me feel like I could be a tower
A big strong tower
She got the power to be
The power to give
The power to see

WHAT BATTLE?! WHO AM I FIGHTING? WHAT IS GOING ON? ...HOW IS THIS APPROPRIATE BATTLE MUSIC? Nothing makes sense to me anymore. I hope you all went to the theatre attendant and asked for your money back because this movie is crap.

Death Scene:

My Skin - Natalie Merchant

Contempt loves the silence
It thrives in the dark
With fine winding tendrils
That strangle the heart

They say that promises
Sweeten the blow
But I don't need them
No, I don't need them

I've been treated so wrong
I've been treated so long
As if I'm becoming untouchable

I'm a slow dying flower
Frost killing hour
The sweet turning sour
And untouchable

Oh, and I die after a battle set to KT Turnstall? To a super sad song? I'm not sure whether to be sad or embarrassed.

End Credits:

Never Quite Eden - Heather Dale

Won't you walk in the garden, come and see how it's grown.
Some parts need tending, others just grow on their own.
Beautiful in springtime and soft in the snow.
I don't want to walk it alone.

Never quite Eden, but not quite yet wild.
Won't you walk for a while?

That was the worst movie ever. Ever.

I am skipping around my apartment to Hall and Oates now >>

Every time I do these, the most inappropriate songs pop up at inappropriate moments. Yours is surprisingly not that bad! I MEAN HERCULES IS IN THERE. And you're driving to the Wild Wild West song!!

Going to do this nao kthx. <3
