Compilation CD (meta meme)

One of the questions I asked my new LJ friend lidocafe in the interview meme was who would compose the soundtrack of her life. She couldn't come up with any one composer; instead, she rather brilliantly listed a whole complilation CD. That, of course, got me thinking about my own list, and here it is:

Peter, Paul and Mary: "Leaving on a Jet Plane"
Joni Mitchell: "Both Sides Now" and "Case of You"
Simon & Garfunkel: "Scarborough Fair" and "America"
Carly Simon: "Anticipation"
Bach Violin and Oboe Concerto in A minor, slow movement
Bruce Springsteen: "The River" and "Dancing in the Dark" (and almost everything else)
Mark Knopfler: "Theme to Local Hero"
Dire Straits: "Brothers in Arms" (the single)
John Wesley Harding: "I'm Wrong About Everything"
Otis Redding: "Sitting on the Dock of the Bay"
Van Morrison: "Into the Mystic"
Prokofief: "The Montagues and the Capulets" from Romeo and Juliet
Albinoni's Adagio
Schostakovich: 2nd piano concerto, slow movement
Brahms 2nd piano concerto
Stan Rogers: "Northwest Passage"
Arlo Guthrie: "City of New Orleans"
Ricky Lee Jones: "Chuck E's in Love"
Waylon Jennings: "Amanda" (don't ask - I was in love with a country & western fan)
Ralph Vaughn Williams: "Rhapsody on a Theme by Thomas Tallis"

And probably the Star Wars theme.
