"Once in a Lifetime" by Talking Heads – Probably a clichéd choice, but it sort of sums up how I feel most days, so not entirely inappropriate.
“Rhubarb Pie (Hot Commodity)” by The Laurie Berkner Band – Seeing as Liam is my alarm clock, a song from his very favorite singer (possibly even very favorite person) is appropriate. Plus, this one is bouncy and fun.
First Day At School:“My Name is Jonas” by Weezer – Not sure how this would work, but it’s an awesome song, so it’ll do.
Falling In Love:
“Gigantor” by Helmet – My fight scene involves giant robots? Oh. Hell. Yes.
“Can’t Buy Me Love” by The Beatles – We had a lot of early 90s dance music at our prom. Some Beatles would’ve been appreciated.
“Election Day” by The Replacements – Not the ‘Mats song I would’ve chosen (that’d probably be the so-called Tim version of “Can’t Hardly Wait”), but I’ll take it, I guess.
“You’ve Got a Chance” by Bad Religion – Apparently I have a very socially conscious mental breakdown.
“That Thing You Do!” by the Wonders – Very upbeat drive, so I must not be going to work.
“Lone Wolf” by the Eels – I’d think “Saturday Morning” would be a better choice from the Eels, personally, but at least this is from the same album.
Getting Back Together:
“Elenore” by Boy Wonder – Excellent cover of my favorite Turtles song, and the sort of thing I’d probably say in such a situation: “You’re my pride and joy, et cetera!”
“My Problem (live)” by Dance Hall Crashers – Well, I got married on purpose, and the day went pretty well, so I wouldn’t call it particularly problematic. Also, little-to-no ska was involved.
Birth of Child:
“Cesspool” by Blake Babies – Oh, Juliana, that’s just mean! Just because my son doesn’t like your music yet doesn’t mean he won’t eventually be brainwashed into it!
“She Blinded Me With Science” by Thomas Dolby – Nerdiest Final
“Man on the Moon” by Sugar – Um, okay? I don’t know this song so well, and I don’t have my headphones at the moment, so I can’t really listen to it right now, so I’ll have to take the pod’s word for it.
“One Less Set of Footsteps” by Jim Croce – Well, that’s just kinda sad, isn’t it?
“Ring of Fire” by Johnny Cash – Screen quick fades to black, and then in start the trumpets. Yeah, that’ll do.
