My 5 Theme Songs….

2 comments

personal theme songs

Did anyone else ever watch the TV show Ally McBeal? If so, do you remember the episode when Ally’s therapist (played by Tracy Ullman) suggested that Ally find a theme song as a way to gain a little control over her life? Well that’s what came to mind when Nicole from Moments That Define Life came up with this week’s Listable Life  topic….. so here are my potential personal theme songs….

#1: Most of the Time My Theme Song Is: Good Life (One Republic)

Favorite Lines:

When you’re happy like a fool
Let it take you over
When everything is out
You gotta take it in

Oh this has gotta be the good life
This has gotta be the good life
This could really be a good life, good life

#2- But There Are Days When My Theme Song Is: Windmills of Your Mind (Muppets)

Favorite Lines:

I’m very relaxed. I’m terribly calm and tranquil.
I’m very very relaxed indeed — on the outside,
but on the inside…

I’m like a circle in a spiral, like a wheel within a wheel.
I’m never ending nor beginning, on an ever-spinning reel.
Just like a snowball down a mountain or a carnival balloon,
Or like a carousel that’s turning, running rings around the moon.

#3- And Sometimes When The Crazy/Busy Gets Me a Bit Down, It’s… So You Had A Bad Day (Daniel Powder)

Favorite Lines:

Sometimes the system goes on the blink
And the whole thing turns out wrong
You might not make it back and you know
That you could be well oh that strong
And I’m not wrong

You had a bad day
You’re taking one down
You sing a sad song just to turn it around
You say you don’t know
You tell me don’t lie
You work at a smile and you go for a ride
You had a bad day
The camera don’t lie
You’re coming back down and you really don’t mind
You had a bad day

#4- But Then My Husband Sings This to To Me…. And Everything Gets Better! Just The Way You Are (Bruno Mars)

Favorite Lines:

I know, I know
When I compliment her she won’t believe me
And it’s so, it’s so
Sad to think that she don’t see what I see
But every time she asks me “Do I look okay? “
I say

When I see your face
There’s not a thing that I would change
‘Cause you’re amazing
Just the way you are 
And when you smile 
The whole world stops and stares for a while
‘Cause girl you’re amazing 
Just the way you are

#5- But if I Had to Narrow It Down to Just One Theme Song… It Would Be: I Hope You Dance (Lee Ann Womack)

Because it is really everything that I wish for my children:

I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger
May you never take one single breath for granted
God forbid love ever leave you empty handed
I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens
Promise me that you’ll give faith a fighting chance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance

I hope you dance
I hope you dance

I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance
Never settle for the path of least resistance
Livin’ might mean takin’ chances, but they’re worth takin’
Lovin’ might be a mistake, but it’s worth makin’
Don’t let some Hellbent heart leave you bitter
When you come close to sellin’ out, reconsider
Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance

I hope you dance
I hope you dance
(Time is a wheel in constant motion always rolling us along)
I hope you dance
I hope you dance
(Tell me who wants to look back on their years and wonder, where those years have gone?)

I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens
Promise me that you’ll give faith a fighting chance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance

Dance
(Time is a wheel in constant motion always rolling us along)
I hope you dance
I hope you dance

I love how you put this together with a mix of videos and then added your “favorite lines”. You always organize your posts so well. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Leann Womack song…one of my absolute favorites.

Nicole- I love not knowing what you are going to wire about and how you are going to approach it…. and then reading it after I link up! I think it is so funny that while we didn’t choose the same songs- we both included video and lyrics in our post! :)
