I have shamelessly stolen this from Liberty who found it on Pinterest – in reality my soundtrack would just be *wimper*gurglegurgle…braaaaaaaaiins *shuffle shuffle* because I suck at running, hiding and fighting so it would be over in about three seconds…
Ah well, iTunes on shuffle and at the ready, here we go:
#1 Wake Me Up When September Ends, Green Day
#2 Beer or Gasoline, Chris Young
That, however, does not.
#3 Marshmallow Attack! (Frozen OST), Christophe Beck
Appropriately dramatic and sort of chase-y, I’ll take it.
#4 Bye Bye Love, The Everly Brothers
I think my iTunes is cheating. Aside from the ‘She sure looks happy’ lyrics at the start, this works!
#5 Open Your Eyes, Snow Patrol
I can’t decide if this one works or not. The opening line works – ‘All this feels strange and untrue,/And I won’t waste a minute without you.’
#6 The Show, Lenka
‘I’m just a little bit caught in the middle/Life is a maze and love is a riddle/I don’t know where to go I can’t do it alone I’ve tried/And I don’t know why.’ Nice and upbeat and kind of on topic.
#7 The Mighty Quinn, Manfred Mann
Nope, can’t make this one work – it’s just too happy…
#8 Hero, Chad Kroeger (Featuring Josey Scott)
‘I am so high, I can hear heaven./I am so high, I can hear heaven./Oh but heaven, no heaven don’t hear me.’
#9 Heartbeat, Scouting For Girls
I think, iTunes, I’d be skipping more than one. (I told you it was cheating, I didn’t even read the list of what the songs were for until after I did the shuffle and wrote the list…)
#10 Awake and Alive, Skillet
The opening lyrics are appropriate and at least it leaves me with a little sense of hope I guess…
‘I’m at war with the world and they/Try to pull me into the dark/ I struggle to find my faith/ As I’m slippin’ from your arms/It’s getting harder to stay awake/ And my strength is fading fast…’
