I was thinking the other day about a discussion I had with one of my friends about having a “theme song” for your life. You know, the kind of song that is a pick me up when your having a bad day or need an extra boost of confidence. My friend told me his “theme song” was “Super Bon Bon” by Soul Coughing. He played “move aside and let the man go through” in his mind when he was prepping for something big. What a perfect theme song for a guy!
I’ve thought about my theme song in life and for some reason the only song I can come up with is “I’m Just a Girl” by No Doubt with the line “living in captivity” being highlighted in my mind. No Doubt was the first concert I ever went to (at the IL State Fair to boot) and I can remember getting that tape in highschool and driving around in my car to memorize the words to all the songs so I could sing them at the concert.
But I digress…
But seriously, I think we all should have a theme song to our life for those times when things just aren’t going our way and we need to be reminded that we are strong and we can get through whatever we are going through.
So what is your theme song to your life?
Please leave a comment on the blog, I’d love to hear what yours is! I’d like to do a follow up post with some of your songs listed so please feel free to share! I thought I’d also share my “pick me up” song list too while we are on the subject of music!
