Soundtrack to life

it happens in the movies, so why not in real life?

In most modern films, there is an underlying soundtrack that indicates the character and their traits. So, for instance, in The Crow (the original and best), a lot of the soundtrack was very grungy and aggressive which fit the main character superbly.

Or there is always a memorable piece of music which is altered slightly throughout the whole film to reflect the mood.

So my question to you is, do you have a soundtrack to your life?

And if so, what sort of music (with examples if you want) would it contain?

I guess I should add mine first really.

Most of my soundtrack would be very upbeat with Summery sort of sounds - Katrina and the Waves sort of thing.

With the occasional mellow out number in the Chicago type mold and then on the very odd occasion, some really angry music a-la Linkin Park or Limp Bizkit.

And every so often, for no reason whatsoever, the theme music to the Archers plays as an undercurrent to the theme.

Rum ti tum ti tum ti tum,
Rum ti tum ti tuuum tuuum.

While Tony Blair's running Britain the theme should be Tears for Fears and Mad World.

Soundtrack to "Das Boot" (the movie): I've always lived right by water until I moved to London, plus Pisces. I'm a sub, I swim along, something happens, it gets more dramatic, then back to calm. No puns about the torpedoes, please!

A mixture of Scandanavian black/death metal.

marduk / dark throne / immortal/ Emperor etc....

....or on a more commercial note Slayer specifically "reign in blood" and "god hates us all"

"I have no faith distracting me
I know why your prayers will never be answered "

...I still have issues ;-)
