The Soundtrack to My Life (Occasional FAQ)

LAnneWriter ask me recently, out of curiosity, what would be 12 songs that you would want on the soundtrack to your life?

I suppose that begs the question: is this my ideal glorified life, or something a little more realistic? If realistic, there’s a lot of Andean pipes, bad boy a-capella, and monks intoning in my childhood.

But if this is the Lifetime movie version if me?
