Music can be pretty powerful.
Anyway, I thought it would be fun to try to figure out what would be my soundtrack. Here's what I came up with.
Childhood: Shawn Cassidy--Da doo run run (wtf does that even mean?)
oh my, I had the biggest crush on him.
KC and the Sunshine Band--I'm Your Boogie Man
I can remember playing this song over and over on my record player (for those of you not 40, it's this plastic disk that you put the needle on and it would play music. If you were lucky. If you weren't it would skip and play the same line over and over again.).
Tweens: Soft Cell Tainted Love
Teens/High School: Poison and Bon Jovi (or really any other hair band of that era).
Living on a Prayer--I think we wore out that cassette on the way to and from football games.
Hair bands were all of a sudden super uncool, (even though big hair was still da bomb). I quickly tossed my metal and hair band music and replaced it with more cool college-y type music.
REM Losing my Religion
U2--Pride in the name of love
omg did I love these songs and bands. Rattle and Hum basically got worn out in my early 20's.
Oh wait! One more for college, it was basically our sorority's theme song.
30's--Simple Plan Welcome to My Life
I lost myself a bit in my 30's. New marriage, new job, kids... I let myself become unimportant, forgot who I was and what was important to me. It's a hard thing--becoming a mom and not allowing that to be the only thing that you are.
40's--I found myself again. Kelly Clarkson What Doesn't Kill You Makes You Stronger
50's and beyond are chapters left to be written. Stay tuned.
What would your life sound track be?
