SOUNDS: If Our Life Had A Soundtrack

The opening scene (camera zooms in on the protagonist looking out of a sunlit window on a bus. It’s noon in Harlem on a Saturday, her day off, and she’s daydreaming about the guy she’s about to meet up with. The bus comes to a stop.)
“Daydreamin,’” by Kurtis Blow (Click on song titles to listen)

The buildup (she’s walking down St. Marks Place and spots him on the corner with another girl, his hand resting on her lower back.)
“Girlfriend,” by Alicia Keys

The resolution (camera cuts to a close-up of the protagonist’s mouth as she prepares to curse him out in disgust. He instantly greets her with a kiss on her tight lips, then introduces her to his ‘little cousin.’)
“It’s Alright,” by ESG
