Soundtrack of Life

It is always interesting how the music in a movie lines up perfectly with the plot line.  Obviously they plan it that way, but often times I think about what the theme music would be like for my life.  What song is playing, what story is trying to be told and what does it say about my mood, state of mind and where I am in life? These are just a few songs that could be soundtrack music for anyone really (clearly this could be a ridiculously long list, but I don’t have time for that)!

Jack Johnson- Banana Pancakes
Passion Pit – Take a Walk
Chic – Le Freak (Freak Out)
Queen –  Under Pressure 
Righteous Brothers – Lost That Loving Feeling
Journey – Don’t Stop Believin’ 
Twisted Sister – We’re Not Gonna Take It 
Aretha Franklin – Oh Happy Day
House of Pain – Jump Around
Imagine Dragons – On Top of the World
Bon Jovi – You Give Love A Bad Name
Wild Cherry – Play That Funky Music
George Strait – I’m Carrying Your Love With Me
Frank Sinatra – The Way You Look Tonight
Alicia Keys – Girl on Fire

Have you seen The Holiday, where Jack Black’s character writes theme music for his friend? It would be fun to have someone look at your life and all you have done and write your theme music.  What do you think it would sound like?  Would it be a good representation of who you want to be?? Would it make people smile?  Inspire someone? Sometimes life happens and the soundtrack follows and other times we choose the soundtrack and see how that changes life. What is your soundtrack for today?
