For today’s Daily Prompt, we were asked to provide a “mixed tape”, a soundtrack of music for our life. This sounded awfully familiar. I looked back in my Facebook notes, and lo and behold there was a game going around for this very purpose. The rules were as follows:
1. Open your library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, iPod, etc)
2. Put it on shuffle.
3. Press play.
4. For the first question, type the song that’s playing.
5. Don’t lie and try to pretend you’re cool… just type it in, man!
6. Repeat until all the questions are answered.
IF YOUR LIFE WERE A MOVIE WHAT WOULD THE SOUNDTRACK BE?
The results were hilarious – and somewhat eerie. I highly recommend everyone try this – even though I knew it was random it was somewhat eye-opening and thought-provoking.

Just the titles are fairly interesting. I of course think I have impeccable taste in music, so I also recommend that you rush out and buy all these titles and listen to them. When you are done with that, you should take your own playlist for a spin and try this experiment!
