I can't really think of any song that would describe me... well, maybe Highway Star by Deep Purple, but I guess it's just because I love that song so much.
My candle burns at both ends
It will not last the night
But ah my foes and oh my friends
It gives a lovely light

Right now I have a few theme songs, depending on my mood:

- "All I Ask of Myself (is That I Hold Together)" - Ned's Atomic Dustbin
- "Let the Bad Times Be" - Junior Brown
- "Sing, Sing, Sing" - Benny Goodman (orig. Louis Prima, but the Goodman version is just... wow.)
- "When the Night Feels My Song" - Bedouin Soundclash
- "Born Slippy" - Underworld
- "Rusty Cage" - Johnny Cash (orig. Soundgarden)
Now Hypercaffeinated! Share and Enjoy!

My theme song of late is Crazy--Gnarles Barkly, but in other news..... :D

Or maybe it's Where Is My Mind--The Pixies. :twisted:

If I had to decide now, it would be "The Introvert Song" by Peter Mayer.

perhaps something instrumental, like Carol of the Bells by Trans-Siberian Orchestra.

If I went with instrumental, it would be one of these:

O Fortuna--Carl Orff,

Marche Slave--Tchaikovsy,

or

L'Inverno--Antonio Vivaldi, but the William Orbit version is ambrosia for the ears.

Mmmmmmmmmm..................

You mean the soundtrack from the movie?


anything. I know the song, I've heard bits of it, most of it I think.. and I know its called "Requiem for a dream" and I think its from the Titanic sountrack, but I can't find the page there for iTunes, and I'm not even sure its that.

isn't it by Kronos Quartet?

IF you wanna go fave songs, for the longs my theme song was "88 lines about 44 women" by They Might Be Giants.

Particle Man as well...

Weird Al..

Now, as far as MEtal, I was a long haired, mullet wearin 80s headbanger. I mourned when Headbangers Ball went off the air.

Old Metallica, Megadeth, Deicide, Judas Priest, hometown bands like Exorder, Helloween, Beelzebubba.....

(Of course at that time I was also a closet Billy Joel fanatic...)

Gapemouth Brown, Zaedeco, Joel Sonier, Clifton Chenier, and other Cajun music was common at home.

SInce I grew up southern, Lynyrd SKynyrd was a must...especially since the night I was born was Oct 14, 1977 the night the plane went down in Mississippi.

To be honest, ''Welcome to my life" by Simple Plan is a pretty accurate representation of the early teen years of my life. The first time I heard the song I was shocked by just how much I could relate to the song. But then I guess that most teens would relate to that song in one way or another. As for what I like, my favourites are "I hope you dance" by ???, "Lips of an Angel" by ???, "Chasing Cars" by Snow Patrol, and that new song by the Dixie Chicks ("I'm not ready to make nice" or something like that)
whoever said nothing is impossible, never tried slamming a revolving door....

Selling angst music to teens is like shooting fish in a barrel. We've all (all who've passed through the teen years in the 80's/90's/00's, I suspect) gone through that "wow this is exactly how I feel" moment with certain music.

Early Offspring for me, IIRC. Poor, poor, Offspring. Someone should have choked on their vomit in that band a few years back.
