Soundtrack of your life
Ok, I saw there's already a thread with the same title, but this one is a bit more structured or something, some sort of game (hope it's ok)
The thing is there's a list of different moments in a film and you should write beside it the song/s you think would be in your life's movie (of course you can add scenes if you feel like it). We did it with some friends and I found really interesting to listen their soundtracks, they tell a lot about people!
I had it in spanish but I translated it, sorry if there are any mistakes
So, here goes my soundtrack (I put links of the songs you probably don't know)
1. Opening titles: YouTube - Anochecer - Lisandro Aristimuño y Kevin Johansen
2. Waking up: Hlemmur 1 (Sigur Rós) / YouTube - Chau Coco - Ensoñado ensayo
3. Falling in love: First day of my life (Bright Eyes) / YouTube - La Manzana Cromática Protoplasmática - Barriletes
4. Fighting: Dawn of victory (Rhapsody)
5. Break up: Say it ain't so (Weezer)
6. "Life's great"/moving on: Satellite of Love (Velvet underground) / YouTube - Armandinho - Semente
7. Mental breakdown: Knives Out (Radiohead) / Thickets (Patrick Wolf)
8: Driving: Water Curses (Animal Collective)
9. Flashbacks: The biggest lie (Elliott Smith)
10: Happy dance: YouTube - The Rasmus Sophia / YouTube - Los parraleños haciendo video megadeth
11: Regreting: Everybody's gotta learn sometimes (Beck) / YouTube - Vuelvas a casa - Coiffeur
12: Final battle: Hexagram (Deftones)
13: Death scene: Teardrop (José Gonzalez)
14: Ending titles: Blackbird (The Beatles) / Dry the Rain (The Beta Band)

Eh, this would pretty much sum up my life:
But I have to check out some of those Spanish-language bands. I'm always trying to discover new Spanish music but it's pretty hard for me considering I live in the U.S, maybe I should just get an account with a Spanish-language music forum.
The only Argentine bands, actually band, I know is Babasonicos, although it's really hard finding their stuff online to download. One of these days you should start a Argentina/Latin American-themed music journal, that would definitely be interesting.

Especially those from the golden age of Spanish-language rock and pop (80's and early 90's), which is splendid in quantity and quality. And as I said there, for the moment we have only explored the "tip of the iceberg". OK, I know we should have posted more frequently. Sorry. Personally, I haven't had enough time lately, but now I'll try to attend to the thread. And Clementine has promised to help me with the magnificent Argentines from the 70's. That is, the precursors of the Spanish-language rock. Stay tuned. Regarding Babasónicos and other stuff, check your PM.
Anyway, we already have mentioned several Argies in that thread. For instance, now we're talking about the soundtrack of our lives, if I think of... let's say.... school, a rock-&-roll comes to mind. I guess we all remember our school days. And I bet many of us would describe them as Tequila (a famous Argentine-Spanish band from the early 80's) did (here you are a translation). Well, that's my personal example because I attended elementary school in that decade.

If my life were an independent film, more in the vein of Gus van Sant or Wes Anderson, I'd be able to see any of these songs being included:
Elvis Costello - Pills and Soap
Richard and Linda Thompson - The End of the Rainbow
John Howard - The Dilemma of the Homosapien
The Mountain Goats - Oceanographer's Choice
Mike Gordon - Take Me Out, Pt. 2
