If my life had a soundtrack, I hope this wouldn't be it.

I had a pretty rough morning today, starting with my smoke detector alerting me that it had a low battery at 7am. It beeped once every minute and a woman's voice shouted "BATTERY LOW". It kept going off over and over and over again. With a headache from hell and very little sleep, I was ready to jump out the window. When I tried to turn it off, it went through a test and started beeping at warp speed and screaming, "WARNING! CARBON MONOXIDE! FIRE, FIRE! GET OUT NOW!" Yeah, it was awesome. I had to crawl out of my apartment and go to CVS to get a new flippin' battery. Ugh.

So I felt a bit off all day. And because of that, I'd love to do my weekend recap tomorrow, when I'm all happy Monday is over and I'm pumped to watch The Bachelor. 

But for right now, I figured it was the perfect day to figure out my life soundtrack. I found it on zentiment and thought it might be fun. I had to start it a few times because I kept getting Christmas music and it was messing me up. 

How it works:

Each “question” you have to answer with a song
1. Open your iPod/iPhone/iTunes music library
2. Put it on shuffle
3. Press play
4. For the first question, type the song that’s playing
5. When you go to a new question, press the next button twice


My Life Soundtrack

Opening Credits: "All The Things I've Done" The Killers
Waking Up:   "Do You Want To" Franz Ferdinand
First Day at School:   “Ruby" Kaiser Chiefs

Losing Virginity:  “Senorita" Justin Timberlake
Fight Song:          “Romeo and Juliet" Dire Straits

Wow, I didn't even know I had half those songs on my iPod. Matchbox Twenty as my wedding song? Really? At least I'm going out with a bang. Dying to Beyonce? Yikes. This is a really depressing soundtrack...

I think my real theme song is "Piña Colada in a Pint Glass" by Gaelic Storm. It's so...me. 

Exhibit A:
"She wants a piña colada in a pint glass...
She wants to be where the summer won’t stop,
She wants gin clear water and milk white sand,
A sunburned nose and a drink in her hand
With a pink umbrella on top."


They might as well have said "Pam" instead of "she". Plus, it's Irishy and beachy. Amazing.

I hate smoke detectors so much, ESPECIALLY when their battery is low, and it's not like they give any warning, like "Hello! You should buy a new battery today because tonight I'm going to scream bloody murder".

Wow, that is one crazy smoke alarm, when did they start making them with voices? That is crazy!

And I love those music things, always so much fun.
And it seems like our taste in music is similar, because I'm pretty sure I have almost of those songs!

Romeo and Juliet is the perfect fighting song. Although I'm not sure about Push for a wedding song, kind of morbid.

The sound of a smoke detector with a low battery makes me want to beat it with a sledgehammer. The sound makes me near deaf
