What Would be on the Soundtrack of your Life?

I love seeing movies for their music soundtrack. The people in charge of choosing each track always seem to nail the storytelling down pat. Music always tells a story, so if you were to create a soundtrack of your own life, do tell, what songs would best tell your life story?

I'm glad there are other people out there who have given this a lot of thought :) I actually have a playlist called "soundtrack" which has all the songs that remind me of certain moments in my life.

"Landslide" by Stevie Nicks. It's my Mothers theme song, and even though I cant relate to all of the lyrics, I love it. Of course I have others, but it's the one that comes to mind first. ;)

I freaking love this question and I can't wait to see everyone else's answers. But on to myself... Track 1 would be a song from a tape my mother used to play for me in the bathtub. It was a nice little kiddie song that some company had inserted a bunch of names into, and my mommy bought one for with Taylor, and for with Lindsey (my sis) 2. I Hate You by Nikki Clearly reminds me of a bitch i knew in 5th grade. Hey There Delilah (plain white t's) I'm In Luv Wit a Stripper (T pain) Black Mamba (the Academy is) Over (daughtry) {these songs all remind me of guys that meant something to me, 3 of the four I meant nothing to) Lots of stuff by panic! at the disco, fallout boy, cute is what we aim for. The lyrics just rip your soul in half. A little avril lavigne thorwn in for good measure. And hell, a Brit song or two. I'll hit that one more time.
