If you don't get it, read the song titles in order as a narrative. (The rest -- artist, etc. -- is generally irrelevant.)


The three people that I pre-shared this with were all very disappointed to learn that the playlist was hand-assembled rather than spontaneously generated. I would like to pass that disappointment along to you.

Real magic is already elusive enough that it's important to be honest about what isn't. This is for entertainment purposes only.

That having been said, I'd like to soften the blow with another playlist for your enjoyment. Same theme, different genre:

I'd love to see what sort of stories other people can assemble out of their music libraries!

There are enough downloadable tracks in the Rock Band franchise at this point that this has become something of a thing there, too - assembling a setlist that tells a story, for lack of any better reason to cobble together a selection of songs. A perfunctory example:

Die, All Right!
Are You Dead Yet?
Still Alive
Cherry Bomb
It Hurts
I Bleed
Calling Dr. Love
Kickstart My Heart
Vital Signs
My Last Words
Amazing Journey
