My Anthems

Did you kind of have anthems or at least certain songs that reminded you of certain pieces of your life? I was just listening to Launchcast and a song came on that reminded me of a big part of my life so I thought I’d think about songs that now signify a period of time in my life.

1. Mother, Mother – This was pretty much the song of my freshman year of college, a major part of my life so far. It’s not that I really had anything to rebel against as far as my mother but I think I finally felt I had an opportunity to rebel in general…against everything.
2. Only the Good Die Young – This was the “official” marching band song of my sophomore year of high school. I don’t know how it became our song but before competitions we used to play the song on a boom box or whatever. We’d then proceed to dance around and sing our heads off :willy_nilly:
3. Escape (The Pina Colada Song) – I’ve already explained this before.
4. You Outta Know – This came out around the time of my first break-up and this song couldn’t have been more perfect. He quickly moved onto another girl and flaunted it in front of me. I’m not sure I want to know what I would have done if I hadn’t had that song to express my rage with.
Just a few…

    I once had an obsession with making mixes. One of my mix tapes was entitled “theme songs”. These were songs that reminded me I can’t recall all of the songs on there off the top of my head, but I can remember

    Dogs In The Yard- Paul McCrane (from Fame)
    Me- Paula Cole
    Both Belong- The Grays

    If only I had that tape next to me now. Can I get back to you on this?:)

    I might make a post about this. Mine are all related to various life experiences. Every single boyfriend I’ve ever had, every place I’ve been, every decade of my life.

    Odd how music sticks with you and brings you back to a place in time. Well, not odd. Music speaks to you on a very deep level so it’s no surprise really.

    Janet – sure thing.

    Miss Ann – Oh this list could have included every boyfriend and such but it would have been way too long. I probably should have included Insane in the Brain but I chose not to.

    Ahhh Alanis …that was the only album of hers I liked. That song was one of mine as well.
    Water by Holly McNarland is another one.

    My musical tastes change so often, I never really had or have a theme song. Sadly, its usually something really goofy.

    BTW, I notice that I can’t subscribe to your blog in bloglines. That sucks. 🙁

    My bloglines seemed screwed up before, I’ll look into it when I get a moment.
