Matrix Cowboys Redux

During a discussion about the soundtrack of The Matrix Reloaded, Ben Perry (newest M.S. alum of my research lab) and I came up with the following country-western soundtrack for the film.

Ben's picks:

1. John Miller - "Popping Pills"
2. Alan Jackson - "Here In The Real World"
3. LeAnn Rimes - "One Way Ticket"
4. Garry Allan - "The One"
5. The Cowboy Junkies - any song from "The Trinity Sessions"
6. Del Reeves - "Lookin' At The World Through a Windshield"

(Those of you who know Ben will have realized that this list is tongue-in-cheek, as Ben wouldn't be caught dead, or plugged into the Matrix for that matter, listening to country music.)

My picks:

7. Patsy Cline (and Trisha Yearwood) - "I Fall To Pieces" (Agent Smith theme)
8. Little Texas - "Your Days Are Numbered"
9. Reba McEntire - "Is There Life Out There"
10. Lari White - "If I'm Not Already Crazy"
11. Sammy Kershaw/George Jones - "Never Bit A Bullet Like This"
12. Martina McBride - "Phones Are Ringing All Over Town"

Let's get this tortoise to Mount Zion!

Top 10 renjected titles fro M2:

10. No One Ever Makes It The First Time [1]
9. The Zion King
