    So if you were to create a compilation CD to give to someone with songs you thought were in some way about you or that had touched you somehow, what songs would you put on it? 10 seems like a good number. Not too many to make it that hard but enough for an album. I'm working on my list in my head at the moment.

    Ohhh This is hard. I can't really think of any songs that fit just me. If I were going to give a compilation cd to anyone, it'd be to my boyfriend and I guess the songs on there would be about both of us and our time together. Hmm Gotta think a bit more.

    Ash - Burn Baby Burn/Shining Light - Never before could you describe rock music as romantic. Now you can.
    Dream Theater - Misunderstood - Story of my life.
    Kaiser Chiefs - I Predict a Riot - I predict havoc.
    Faithless - Insomnia - I can't sleep.
    Stereophonics - Maybe Tomorrow - Because maybe, just maybe, tomorrow will be my day.
    Honeyz - Finally Found - For when I find her.
    A - Starbucks - Because I don't want to be in a dead end job.
    U2 - Beautiful Day - Because sometimes it is a beautiful day.
    Sum 41 - Fat Lip - I'm going CRAZY dudes!

    Sorry to repeat a couple of artists. The Ash songs count as 2. American people here should try some of the Brit stuff here. It really is....incredible. Ash are superb and Kaiser Chiefs are the new kids on the block and are fabulous too.
    All show symbols that demosntrate my life....vaguely....

    2. Brain Stew - Green Day (so does this one)
    3. Boulevard of Broken Dreams - Green Day
    4. Mad World - Gary Jules (has to be this version!! others may disagree)

    7. The Farm - Aerosmith
    8. Cells - The Servant
    9. Champagne Supernova - Oasis

    My theme song used to be Pharcyde's "She keeps passin' me by" but now that I am engaged, it doesn't really apply anymore.
