My Last Soundtrack (MLS) is an easy-to-use tool for you to develop a permanent online legacy for yourself or for someone you love.
MLS (MLS) lets you tell the world and everyone living in it – today and tomorrow – what matters most to you.
A Last Soundtrack will be a permanent site friends and family can “visit” to remember you or a loved one. It will be a place where you can share some of yourself with those who follow you.
Your last soundtrack can be either public, semi-private, or private. This setting can be chosen when you publish your soundtrack.
Public soundtracks are viewable and searchable by anyone and everyone.
Private soundtracks are only viewable by you and people you share the URL (web address) with.
Only if you or someone you love is going to die. Or has already died.
My Last Soundtrack wants to help you capture the good stuff that matters, simply! We understand it may be hard to get started. This guide should help you identify the memories that matter most, upload content, and spark ideas to create a meaningful last soundtrack.
If you love music like we love music, there may be just too many options in the universe of tunes! Here are some questions to help you sort through and choose the songs that best tell the story of you.

Which one was your “youthful anthem?” Why?
How about during your college years?

Yes, the site is currently in beta mode so we consider these features the nuts and bolts of the project. There are many more features we plan on adding in the future...this is just the beginning.
Your legacy will live on forever (or as long as MLS is active that is...)! We decided to do away with annoying annual or monthly subscriptions and charge a one-time fee to create each Last Soundtrack so you don’t have to worry about keeping your legacy – or the legacy of someone you love – alive.
Yes, once your legacy site is published it can unpublished, edited, or deleted completely.
You can easily share your soundtrack via email by sharing your link with friends and family or with the share button on the bottom of your page.
Please send us a note to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include “activation” and your user name in the subject field.
We understand creating a legacy page or trying to figure out what to include in a loved one’s legacy page can be difficult. The Build-It Guide below can help!
This section is all about the history of you or your loved one. Feel free to tell the biography or history as briefly or as detailed as you want. Your English teacher won’t be grading this, so feel free to use paragraphs, bullet points, quotes, and phrases.
Choose photos that mark different stages in your life.
Don’t forget favorite pictures of friends, family, and pets.
It’s best to keep captions short, sweet, and thought-provoking.
Confused on how to get a print photo onto the computer? We were too! Check out this nifty app to easily transfer and scan print photos to online.
Call people close to your loved one and just ask them to tell their favorite story. Don’t tell them it’s for MLS, because that puts pressure on them. After you’ve got it, ask them if you may use it for the legacy.
You’re not the only one keeping tabs on your own life. Ask friends or family if they’d like to tell a story that best captures your life.
These stories can be anything you want to share! From that funny story from your wedding day to your grandma’s famous chocolate chip cookie recipe. Here is a list of ideas we have come up with whether you are creating your own soundtrack or a soundtrack for a family member or friend. Hopefully these will spark some ideas of your own.
Best family vacation?
Hilarious moment from your wedding?
The day your first child was born?
Advice you want to leave behind?
A selection of you or your loved one’s favorite quotes?
Silly moments with your grandchildren?
The story of running your first marathon or playing in the big game?
Hobbies enjoyed throughout childhood or later in life?
