My Soundtrack

Sometimes I think my life should have a soundtrack.

Firstly, I think I need back-up music. Not always, just for those soap opera pauses where music slowly builds, then we go to a commercial break. Like when TJ says something dramatic like "Mom, there is something on my mind that needs some attention...." then cue the music! You know what I mean?

Anyway, back to the soundtrack. Remember when Ally McBeal was on TV (side note - my friend Amanda used to call it Ally McSkipped-A-Meal)? They had this thing in that show where each character had a theme song. Well my friends and I all decided that we needed our own theme songs too. This one was mine:

How GREAT is that song?!?!

I still think this should be my theme song, but let's face it, it totally depends on the day.

There are times when I swear this one should definitely be on my soundtrack (believe it or not, pun intended):

This one is on there too, but mostly because I think the title is hysterical - "I've Got Angst in my Pants":

And who can forget this one:

And this one for sure, just because it's so bouncy and easy going and melodic, just like me:

This one reminds me of the joy in the simple things:

And this one makes me feel powerful:

There are so, so many more that I just can't plagiarize them all.

I LOVE thinking of all the different songs that would make up the soundtrack of my life, even though that soundtrack changes on a daily basis. There are songs that make me cry, laugh, dance, and cover me with goose bumps....all these songs make up my life's soundtrack.

On second thought, I think I need a new theme song. This one really sums things up. Really:


  1. I vote muppets. You can't help but smile after humming a few bars and it's appropriate for every mood. :)

    My husband has a theme song-Tighten it up by Archie Bell and the Drells. If we ever randomly hear it (which DOES happen) we all stop and start dancing. Which is the best part of knowing someone with a theme song!!
