If your life were a film, what would the soundtrack be?

Okay, if this thread is supposed to go in the Forum Games section, then someone please move it if need be.

Anyway, these are the rules:

1. Open your library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, iPod, etc)
2. Put it on shuffle
3. Press play
4. For every category, type the song that's playing, along with the artist and the album name
5. When you go to a new category, press the next button
6. Don't lie.
7. Only do this two three times, one for the original movie and one for the "sequel" one for the "sequel", and one for the "third sequel that nobody really asked for but got anyway". But please, wait until at least 8 10 replies have already been submitted before you do another. The playlist replies, I mean.

Alright, these are mine:

  • Wait, So for a thread that says "What would your soundtrack be?", It's random? Meh, I'll go ahead, but my iTunes only has Cave Story music on. Now you know the kind of person I am.

    Opening Credits: Cave Story Theme Song/Plantation (What a lucky *tankard* I am...)
    Birth: The way back home (DOES. NOT. FIIIIIT.)
    First Day of School: Mimiga Town (It would fit if I were normal, But I raised hell on my first day =P)
    Falling In Love: Pulse (Sorta Fits, But only the slightly depressing solo bit)
    Fight Song: Last Battle (YES. YES. YES!)
    Breaking Up: Balcony (Another that fits? Irony. Also, I love this song, So depressing)
    Prom: Quiet (Sorta fits, but was originally for ambience in the game, Waaaay too mysterious for the prom.)
    Life: Living Waterway (Another fitting one, This is getting pretty sweet now.)
    Mental Breakdown: Balrog's Theme (Okay, It kinda fits.)
    Driving: Oprression (Waaaaaiit... WHAT!?)
    Flashback: Eyes of Flame (Only fits to a small degree, unless it was a flashback of a fight)
    Wedding: Hero's End (It's less depressing than it's name says, So much so, It fits!)
    Birth of Child: Jenka 2 (Doesn't fit at all, maybe the original would, but this version is used for the Red Flower Crisis, So damn.)
    Final Battle: Moonsong (NO NO NOT THIS! *Cries uncontrollably* this song makes me Cry Damnit! WRONG SONG FOR FINAL BATTLE!)
    Death Scene: Toroko's Theme (Okay, It fits once you find out why it's half depressing and half not in game... WHY DID THEY HAVE TO DIE?!)
    Funeral: Scorching Back (Apparently it was very Hectic...)
    End Credits: Safety (Oh, Yay, One of the generic House songs...)

    Okay, If I were to choose to change Final Battle, I'd probably choose... RUN! for it, Or maybe Zombie. Oh, and all of the songs are in the Deluxe Cave Story set.
