Soundtrack to my life

This weekend I was at the Jaded Nyers, and she designed the soundtrack to her life. WOW! I loved the concept I thought I would do it too. Sorry most of the vids are just fan dedications, but for me it is always about the Lyrics. If you've never heard some of the tracks give a listen...you will thank me tomorrow :)

If your life were a movie, what songs would be on the soundtrack? Copy and paste the list of different scenes below and fill in your answers.

-Opening Credits: :"To be Young Gifted and Black" Donny Hathaway.


-Waking Up: "No Way" Ty Tribett


The title says it all. There's no way I could do anything without God.




-Falling In Love: "Pink Cashmere" Prince


Pink Cashmere is soft, luxurious and decedent, when you fall in love you should feel just like that. You all will just have to remember how that song made you feel I can't find it anywhere on the internet.


-Fight Scene: "Bitch in you" Common


This is pretty typical of any fight I've ever had. Someone always thought that I would be scared to come back at them and so I had to show them differently.




-Breaking Up: "Don't Play with my heart" Beres Hammond
Best line ever. " Although deep down inside I'll be bleeding I still have to push you aside"




-Make Up: "Stir it Up" Bob Marley


Quench me when I'm thirsty, come and cool me down when I'm HOT. After time away from your love that's really all you want or need




-Secret Love: "Ooh this Love is So"Al B. Sure


Something about this song is just secretive maybe its the the way he is singing "Ooh this love is sooo.... but I won't let you go.



peep the outfit and the woman in the audience. Ooh this show was soo bad but I still love it.



-Life's OK: "Golden" Jill Scott



My life is reflected in every lyric of this song! I'm taking my freedom putting it in my stroll I be high stepping ya'll!


-Mental Breakdown: "Sunshine" Floetry

I have played this song so many times and just walked and cried until I didn't know where I was. If you listen to the entire song you will see she is talking to herself. Women need to remember we are our own sunshine and when we lose track of that we will breakdown.




-Driving Scene: "Player's Anthem" Notorious B.I.G

It's one of my favorite songs, times seems so much simpler than. So when I hear it I roll down the windows and pump it like I'm in the club!




-Flashback: "Just the two of us" Chubb Rock

I just see myself in my Tommy Hilfiger, french rolled hair and extra long nails laughing and dancing. I was a real Reggae girl back in the day.





-Happy Dance: "Put your hands where my eyes can see" Busta Rhymes

Another BK favorite. The first five seconds of this will have me taking off my shoes and pulling my hair back to dance like I am in the room alone.





-Regretting: "Slip Sliding Away" Paul Simon

I try not to have too many regrets. But when I do Paul Simon fixes that and helps me let go. Best part of this song "She said a good day ain't got no mood, she said a bad days when I lie in bed and think of things that might have been, Slip Sliding away"





-Long Night Alone: "Emotional" Carl Thomas

Sometime I need an emotional release, and this song always does the trick





-Final Battle: "God's gonna cut you down" Johnny Cash

Johnny Cash is the truth! This song is a true battle cry."You can run on for a long time, but sooner or later God will cut you down"




-Death Scene: "Pass Me Over" Anthony Hamilton

"Just pass me over, make believe that I'm not there, just leave me be until the savior comes"




-Final Ending: "Tell you something" Alicia Keys
The Lyrics say it all. I want to tell you something, give you something. Show you in so many ways. Cause it would all mean nothing if I don't say something before it all goes away.




-End Credits:"Proud Mary "Ike and Tina Turner review


What a way to go go out, Never doing things Nice and Easy. Do it Nice and rough!



This was fun and long!
