Always with me, Always with you seems to have a major impact on most people who hear it, I don't think any song has changed my tastes in music so drastically.

Tis a great song:D when have you heard it? I got into Satchy sometime last year and thats gotta be one of my favourite songs by him:wink: its strange, there's no lyircs but the guitar sometimes seems like it can sing: peace: which i think makes him much better than any band, because he's being more creative with a guitar... Steve Vais another great guitarist, but I hvent heard many of his songs... He lost to the Karate Kid in a Guitar Duel:laughing: not really it was all in a movie, crossroads. watch it theyre playing Eugene's Trick Bag:heh:

Decent thread! I would love to give this loads and loads of thought, but I think I'll gloss over my itunes list for answers...


Opening - Diamond - Klint (or "The Raising Fighting Spirit by Toshiro Masuda ;))

Average Day - Come Together - Beatles

First Date - King Of The Rodeo - Kings of Leon

Falling in Love - For Me This Is Heaven - Jimmy Eat World

Love scene - That Great Love Sound - The Raveonettes

Fight scene - January 1979 - mewithoutYou

Breaking up - The Boy Who Blocked His Own Shot - Brand New

Mental Breakdown - Untitled - Brand New (listen and see what I mean!)

Deep Thought - Dub Side of the Moon - Easy Star All Stars

Walking in the Rain - Poetic Tragedy - The Used

Death of a Friend - Road Trippin' - Chili Peppers

Regreting - Drive - Incubus

Death scene - Hurt - Nine Inch Nails

Ending Credits - The Passenger - Iggy Pop


.. You could add anything to that list, like music for when you're washing up, or waking up, or walking to school, or getting drunk, or feeling hyper. Anything.


My list, in general, can be replaced by the entire works of mewithoutYou and Brand New. My 'fight scene' one isn't really accurate - but teh song really gets my adrenaline going :)

I used to be a big fan of Jimmy eat World, but some of their songs are really depressing:laughing: I didnt like that Clarity Album, except for Blister and Lucky Denver Mint, they were great. I hope their new album is good though... Yeah theyre bringing a new one out sometime this year apparentley: peace:

To be honest I've slowly drifted away from the more guitar-centric stuff over the last couple of years, though there was a time when I couldn't go five minutes without listening to Passion and Warfare. If G3 do another tour don't pass up the opportunity to see Satch and Vai live, I caught them a couple of years ago when they toured with Robert Fripp and it was incredible.

Soundtrack to my Live would have to be the Colplay X&Y Album, Swalloed by The Sea could quite possibly be the greatest song of all time in my eyes

Opening - I Turn My Camera On - Spoon

Uptempto (as all openings should be) and sounds happy, but the lyrics have underlying darkness.

Average Day - Louis XIV - Louis XIV

"Me me me me is all I ever want to talk about"

First Date - I Hear The Bells - Mike Doughty

Its uplifiting and optimistic. (And the lines "You're business dress, so business like and I'm tossing the blouse over chair back" is always a winner on the first date)

Falling in Love - Fidelity - Regina Spektor

The lyrics are about not being able to trust people you love. I don't fall in love "properly"

Love scene - Breathe Me - Sia

Beautifully sung and the lyrics again "Be my friend. Hold me, wrap me up. UNFOLD me. I am small, and needy. Warm me up. And breathe me"

Fight scene - Right Here, Right Now - Fatboy Slim

Bumped with adrenaline

Breaking up - Sway - Perishers

"I don't want to hurt you, I don't want to make you sway, like I know I've done before, I will not do it any more"

Mental Breakdown - Cementary Park - Air

Something very unsettling about that song.

Deep Thought - Samba E Amor

Or anything off her album. Perfect relaxing music.

Walking in the Rain - It's Not Over Yet - Klaxons

Upbeat and fun to sing to

Death of a Friend - Fair - Annuals

All about life being unfair

Regreting - Lets Make This Moment A Crime - The Format

Had to include the Format somewhere

Death scene - See My Friends - Gravenhurst

Slow, emotional and saddening

Ending Credits - Time Flies Tomorrow - Paul Westerberg

Just sad and soft. My life story will be moody and angsty.

1. Just You Wait

My parents decide to have a kid, but because of an accident that wrecked my dad's piss tube as a kid he is stuck assuring my mom he can create life.

2. Gizmo Escapes

I am born. It is bloody.

6. Visitors

Alien phase thanks to the X-Files.

7. Teenage Mutant Gremlins

I have grown up into a nostalgic mess stuck in the past. It is sad for all, especially me.

8. Keep It Quiet

I retreat to the sewers to live out my life in secret.

9. No Rats

I am living in the sewers and contrary to the song's title... there are indeed rats.

10. Gremlin Pudding

What else would one eat in the sewer?

11. New Trends

I emerge only at night garbed in whatever I can salvage from people's refuse, accidentally creating a new trend which causes me great despair as people are now copying my unique, forced style.

12. Gremlin Credits

I die - cold, alone and smelly.




Yeah, I just kinda used the Gremlins 2 soundtrack. Great thread idea.

After a little thought:


Opening – In My Heart - Moby

Gushing at each other in Pizza Hut.

Motorcycling out of Pizza Hut. On a Harley. With a side-car.

"Sensual" teen sex that goes on for an unrealistically long time before climax.

Fight scene – Guerrilla Radio – Rage Against The Machine

Baseball bats and strobe lighting involved.

Breaking up – Missing The War – Ben Folds Five

Violent shoe-throwing in bullet time.

Mental Breakdown – Naked – Benjamin Zephaniah

Later found naked attacking the mannequins in Debenhams.

Deep Thought – Close Your Eyes – Chemical Brothers/Magic Numbers

Walking in the Rain – In My Place - Coldplay

Long, irritating conversation about our love of baseball.

Regretting- Father and Son – Cat Stevens

Settle into bed, only to have long, irritating memories about games of baseball.

Death scene – Do You Realise?? – The Flaming Lips

Finally utterly fed up of baseball, I simply allow myself to starve to death.

Credit sequence bullet pointed by little baseballs.

haha we put the same song in for Regrets guy above me:yay:


They played the song at the sixth form leaver's ball a few years back. I was never a fan of the song before, but at that moment I had a new found love for it. It just seemed to make sense, if you get me.

Decided to use only Moby songs. Cause he has so many great ones and they fit for a lot of different moods and all that stuff. =D


Opening - Go

Average Day - Honey

First Date - Flower

Falling in Love - Move (you make me feel so good)

Love scene - Everloving

Fight scene - That's when I reach for my revolver

Breaking up - Porcelain and One of these mornings

Mental Breakdown - When it's cold I'd like to die

Deep Thought - Natural blues

Walking in the Rain - Guitar flute & string

Death of a Friend - Why does my heart feel so bad?

Regretting - Down slow

Death scene - I'm not worried at all

Ending Credits - In my heart


I found that for some parts (like breaking up) I could put down a lot of songs, but I just picked one. Except for the breaking up thing. There's just so many of his songs that could go there. Anyway, I enjoyed doing this, cause it made me listen to a ton of Moby's songs again; dug out the albums I have and stuff. =D

Opening -Enino Morricone - For A Few Dollars More

The perfect music to play while the opening titles play.


Average Day - Rage Against The Machine - Wake Up

I picked this because its the music for my alarm clock and its a top song.


First Date - Blondie - Call Me

Erm why not?


Falling in Love - Goo Goo Dolls - Iris

Sums it up pretty well.


Love scene - Goldfrapp - Black Cherry

Because its a dirty song, dirty in the good way.


Fight scene - The Dropkick Murphys - Shipping Out To Boston

Its a high tempo song, works really well in The Departed.


Breaking up - Nine Inch Nails - Closer To God]

The energy in this song just screams break up to me, whilst the lyrics might not.


Mental Breakdown - Jefferson Airplane - White Rabbit

Because any metal breakdown I suffer is bound to be drugs related.


Deep Thought - Royksopp - Epple

Wasn't to sure on this one, but I can see it fitting.


Walking in the Rain - Aphex Twin - Vordhosbn

Just because I wanted some Aphex Twin really.


Death of a Friend - Bob Dylan - All Along The Watchtower

I can picture it being played at a funeral.


Regreting - ...And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of The Dead - Mistakes

And Regrets

Title says it all really.


Death scene - Johnny Cash - Hurt

Because its an awsomley eiree song that was born for a death scene.


Ending Credits - Foo Fighters - Learn To Fly

Because its one of my favourite songs.

Most of the time, these things are meant to be comedic thingies, and the way you do it is by putting iTunes/WMP etc in to random mode, and whatever song plays, have as the title. Some good stuff comes up that way - sometimes it doesn't make sense though!


Still, this is a good thread.
