My Infinite Playlist

The new song by The Killers asks "Are we human or dancer?" One of the DJs on 94.7 said that line made no sense, but I disagree. I like the phrase - are we on autopilot, dancing the steps, but not thinking about it, or are we embracing our faults, our looks, our passions, our strengths, our weaknesses, living as humanly as possible.

In Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist, a movie I saw twice this weekend, Nick and Norah clumsily take the New York night, discovering themselves and each other in a very honest way. They celebrate their teenage humanity with confidence, insecurity, intelligence, and heart. All while bonding over music. A playlist that provides the soundtrack to the movie.

I am making my Infinite Playlist. Elizabeth: The Soundtrack.

The Killers - Human
Cake - Short Skirt, Long Jacket
Swell Season - Leave
The Killers - Smile Like You Mean It
Nirvana - Come As You Are
Beck - Loser
Cake - I Will Survive
Aimee Mann - Save Me

That's all I have so far. But I intend on adding bunches of music in the next few months and creating a soundtrack for my life on a regular basis. What's on your playlist?
