First, I must mention that I've been playing around with my blog look (especially since some of you have already commented on it). This is an ongoing thing. I am learning HTML and web design, and eventually I plan to move this blog to a new address, but this is all a bit premature. For now, I'm just going for a new look. Hope you all enjoy it!
A few days ago I visited Write on, Yo! and heard (for the first time) Grace Kelly by Mika. After subsequently deciding that I MUST OWN THIS SONG and purchasing it from iTunes, I listened to it a few hundred times and proclaimed it my blog theme song.
"I could be brown, I could be blue, I could be violet sky
I could be hurtful, I could be purple, I could be anything you like."
This really got me thinking about the theme songs of life. Music has always had great meaning in my life, even though I am no where near a musician. I have multiple songs for different aspects of my life.
The Way by Fastball: "They made up their minds, and they started packing. They left before the sun came up that day...but where were they going without ever knowing the way?"
This one is just the way I live. Where are we going without ever knowing the way? I can't believe that two teenagers made a life together and now, almost 15 years later (12 of those spent outside the US) are fairly successful even though we still don't know the way. But it's okay. I no longer mind not knowing the way (well, most of the time anyway).
The Middle by Jimmy Eat World reminds me of my teenage years and prompted me to introduce my teenage daughter to this song (which she plays incessantly, so apparently it's a universal teenage song).
So how about you? What's your theme song?
