Theme Songs Of Our Lives

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?


  1. OMG I LOVE THE WAY! I've loved that song since it came out! There are so many out there- I also love The Heart of Life by John Mayer. Check it out.

  2. Kaycie - I'm visiting from Mama Drama. I also have a lot of theme songs for various times in, or aspects of, my life!! Woohoo, I'm so glad I'm not the only one :-)

  3. Kylie, I just realized that I messed up your name...I apparently have "Kaycie" on the brain for some reason, no idea why. Sorry!! Anyway, great post!

  4. *rock rock rock*

    No more Mika. PLEASE! Boo went through a stage where the song was on loop for like 4 months...

    My theme song? I'm a bitch. Or anything with the F word in it... *snort*

  5. Hey you! Love your new look and wow great post...I have to say "In Your Eyes" Peter Gabriel the whole John Cusack boombox in the air thing had me going for years...and now probably Sting "let your Soul be your Pilot"...

  6. I don't think I have a theme song, or if I do, it's probably the Alka Seltzer plop plop fizz fizz jungle,but I do love Mika's song.

  7. "angel from montgmery"---

    thanks for visiting my blog.


  8. Rockstar...
    'Cause I am...

    At least in my own head!

  9. "Just another day in paridise" It's a country song and I don't know the artist, but it is my life. And, Martina McBride's "My baby loves me (just the way that I am)"

  10. This post has hit me on just the right day...I was thinking earlier that I need a few tips of new good songs to listen to. I'm writing down your list here.

    Lately, I've been unable to listen to Kimya Dawson's "I Love You Sweet Baby" without my heart swooping into joyous and melancholy rememberance of just that period of life with each of my babies. It's not on YouTube, although other of her songs are, but it can be listened to:


Comments are much appreciated! I love to hear the nice and clever things you have to say.
