I always think about songs in the context of movie soundtracks. Ever since I always dreamt of making skate videos. I may have to make a list like that as well. I LOVE that Wreckless Eric song.

Ha! Love these lists! You know, I'm going to admit that sometimes when I'm driving and listening to music (especially when it's depressing-ish music), I sort of imagine that I AM in a movie and this is the montage to my depressing scene.

"World Spins Madly On" by The Weepies usually makes a huge cameo...
