Opening Credits: Bomb(Bush)
-Quite possibly the wrong implication here.

Waking Up: Dumb(Nirvana)
-It'd fit decently I suppose.

First Day At School: Harborcoat(R.E.M.)
-Heh, very fitting.

Falling In Love: A Song Was Born(Louis "Lewie" Armstrong)
-Feh, not the best choice for "Falling in Love."

Fight Song: Blinking Lights (Eels)
-This fight wouldn't be much with this as it's track, one of the calmest songs I know.

Breaking Up: The Song is Over (The Who)
-Sure, this works, I guess.

Prom: Over Under Sideways Down(The Yardbirds)
-Would probably be best for the "Life" category, it is quite the innuendo here.

Life: I Palindrome I (They Might Be Giants)
-Murdering my mother then getting killed by my children for a living?

Holiday: Under Pressure (Queen)
-Would be better for "Mental Breakdown", but I can see it here as well I suppose.

Mental Breakdown: Ages of You (R.E.M.)
-This would make for one very interesting mental breakdown.

Driving: Flathead (The Fratellis)
-One wonders what I do while driving.

Flashback: Aftermath (R.E.M.)
- Eh, stereotypical flashback.

Getting Back Together: Pennsylvania 6-5000 (Glen Miller Orchestra)
-I like the song, but thinking of it in this context makes me wince.

Wedding: Orange Blossom Special (Johnny Cash)
-Eh, of what I have, I suppose this is probably the best just because it's good ol' Johnny.

Birth of Child: It's a Hard Life (Queen)
-It sounds like my first born will have some sort of genetic defect.

Final Battle: My Beloved Monsters (Eels)
-My fights don't seem to be at all normal, I admit, I cracked up with this one.

Death Scene: American Patrol (Glen Miller Orchestra)
-A jazzy death? How interesting. I could see it happening.

Funeral Song: Camera (R.E.M.)
-A very ambiguous song, would be better for "Breaking Up" or the end credits, but it works here too, gotta love early R.E.M.

End Credits: Homecoming (Green Day)
-Considering the rest of the songs, this wouldn't fit so well, with out them, maybe.

Opening Credits: A Matter of Trust -- Billy Joel
Huh, not bad, not your classic opening credits song by any means, but interesting.
Waking Up:It's Still Rock and Roll to Me -- Billy Joel
It works...
First Day At School: Papercut -- Linkin Park
Falling In Love: Someone Else's Arms -- Mae
Fits pretty well so far... really well, actually.
Fight Song: Shout -- Disturbed
Breaking Up: Revenga -- System of a Down
Prom: High Voltage -- Linkin Park
Life: Light Years -- Pearl Jam
? Wait... no, Astronomer, got it.
Holiday: Breathing -- Yellowcard
Breathing... Take a breath... works
Mental Breakdown: One Year, Six Months -- Yellowcard
Long breakdown...
Driving: Just Let Go -- Mae
Not a good idea
Flashback: Decadence -- Disturbed
Getting Back Together: Knees of My Heart -- Jimmy Buffett
Another one that fits
Wedding: Lie Lie Lie -- Serj Tankian
Another one that doesn't
Birth of Child: Ramble On -- Led Zeppelin
Don't think that really works...
Final Battle: Shoot Em Down -- Twisted Sister
But this one does
Death Scene: Feed Us -- Serj Tankian
Funeral Song: Face in the Sand -- Iron Maiden
I guess that's technically true of a funeral
End Credits: Who Are You -- Pearl Jam
Not a bad song for the credits of a movie about someone's life

Overall not bad, maybe 50/50 or so. Really bugs me that I got all this new Metallica and Iron Maiden for Christmas, and I get one song from it, the rest are just repeats off of albums I got out of curiosity for the most part (well, at least that's true for Serj and Mae, both of which I liked, but the point still stands). I guess it's WMP's fault with it's unlucky random song picking.
And though you come out of each gruelling bout,
All broken and beaten and scarred,
Just have one more try—it’s dead easy to die,
It’s the keeping-on-living that’s hard.

Opening Credits: Nasty Habits (Oingo Boingo)
Lol, this one fits me almost perfectly. So far, so good.

Waking Up: The Pot (Tool)
Works very well, I usually feel stoned when I wake up.

First Day At School: Deththeme (Dethklok of Metalocalypse)
A little wierd, but It's got a nice vibe.

Falling In Love: Ghost Range (E-Pro Remix, by Beck)
Eh...kind of strange. A good song, but not a good love song.

Fight Song: Grey Matter (Oingo Boingo)
Sweet fight song, because the xylophone sounds like people punching each other.

Breaking Up: Buisness Time (Flight of the Conchords)
...A song about sex...when breaking up?

Prom: Whole Day Off (Oingo Boingo)
Awesome song, but it's a total stoner song...not prom.

Life: Classico (Tenacious D)

Holiday: Formed A Band (Original)(Art Brut)
Great vibe, but the lyrics make no sense here.

Mental Breakdown: Water Torture (Stephin Merritt)
Impossible odds (Look at the title), a little wierd in this situation.

Driving: Foux Du Fafa (Flight of the Conchords)
Maybe better if I lived in France...

Flashback: Chop Suey! (System of a Down)
Works if I'm flashing back to a depraved childhood or something, but otherwise....

Getting Back Together: Ladies of the World (Flight of the Conchords)

Wedding: Trudgemank (
...The opposite of perfect.

Birth of Child: Pressure Zone (Beck)
The title makes me lul, but it makes no sense.

Final Battle: Rock Your Socks (Tenacious D)
Works in vibe, if not in lulz.

Death Scene: In the Hall of the Mountain King (Ludvig von Beethoven)
I like how it's classical, but it's not a very fitting classical song.

Funeral Song: Dumb (Nirvana)
...Depressing to play at a funeral.

End Credits: Gimme Shelter (Rolling Stones)
And isn't that all we really want? :P
Intellectuals are like the Mafia; they only kill their own.

Opening Credits: The battle of evermore [Led Zeppelin]
The song could either be interpreted as a beginning of an age or an end. It's odd how appropriate both meanings would be.

Waking Up: live and let die [Guns and Roses]
Funny, the opposite philosiphy is what is usually on my mind in the morning.

First Day At School:Calm Like a Bomb [Rage Against the Machine]
Disturbingly accurate.

Falling In Love: Got me wrong [Alice in chains]
This song really applied to both parties.

Fight Song: Peace [Weezer]
I could not have chosen a more inappropriate song if I tried.

Breaking Up:Polly [Nirvana]
No comment.

Prom: White room [Cream]
I don't know what to make of this. Surely Prom has something to do with hallucinations of a railway station, but nothing that I would know.

Life: Karma Police [Radiohead]
No comment.

Holiday:Am I Going Crazy? [Korn]
Holidays are quite stable and sane for me actually.

Mental Breakdown: The Day the World Went Away [Nine Inch Nails]
Somewhat appropriate.

Driving: U.N Owen was her [Touhou]
This is just perfect for driving to gay nightclubs.

Flashback: How To Save a Life [The Fray]
What the hell was I remembering that could possibly prompt this mellow sap?

Getting Back Together: Black Heart [Slipknot]
My Playlist hates me.

Wedding: Cocaine Girl [Nirvana]
This just gets better and better.

Birth of Child: People Are Strange [The Doors]
I would assume coke babies are often very strange.

Final Battle: The Man [ Yoshiro Kusano]
This is a final boss theme, so it works.

Death Scene: I Want It All [Queen]
My movie's sountrack is suffering from a worse dissonance than Reservoir Dogs or Clockwork Orange.

Funeral Song: Man In the Box [Alice In Chains]
And here is a little bit of redemption.

End Credits: Break on Through [The Doors]

Good, good. 25 OP for those of the 2nd round.
I think that will do it.

Hope, it is the quintessential human delusion,
simultaneously the source of our greatest strength, and our greatest weakness.
