Name THAT tune!

Music has always been a Huge part of my life. I love it. When I was younger I saved all of my babysitting money to purchase the top 40 hits, so I could practice my lounge act, alone in my room with some crazy wardrobe and a hairbrush. When I was a young mother, I played my vinyl records (Remember them? They were bigger than your head, could serve a pizza on them and had a gazillion hits, plus a photo jacket worth framing of your fav recording artist) on my cleaning days, so loud all the neighbors could hear, and sigh. My toddlers soon were exposed to all my favorites, and though I exposed them to all my favorites, they grew Up! and formed their own tastes in music which they shared with Me. And now, I’m like a jukebox of tunes…some old, some new, wait, did I say jukebox? That would date me, so I’ll scratch that and say, mixed CD.
K. Now, where was I? Ah yes, for the love of music. Yep, I do love me some tunes. One day, I wondered, what would be my theme song, if I had to choose one? How could I choose just one?
If I had to stick to the first thing that popped into my head, I’d have to say embarrassingly, it’d be “Sunglasses at Night” by Corey Hart. Can you hear it?
I’d be so cool.

But I’m not some die hard 80’s junkie, and few people have even heard that song, and most people would wonder “what the hell was she thinking?” So, I thought, really thought.
I'm thinking.

I asked my husband, while taking a drive the other day, the same question. Honey, what would be your theme song? He replied within minutes. SECONDS even. (If you’re thinking it’s a Beatles song, I KNOW, he always picks Beatles songs…) Nope, he says it’d be “We Are the Champions by Queen”. It fits me. You gotta love a man who really knows himself and isn’t afraid to show it know matter how it looks.

So I still I ponder. I thought, I’ll pick something upbeat and spiritual. I picked “Kyrie” by Mr. Mister, ANOTHER 80’s reference…..what is With that? I really like the mood that song sets…cool, wicked tempo, and picks up and gives glory to a higher power! Calm down.

Then I thought of “Glamorous” by Fergie. OH MY GOD, I can HEAR you all groaning. Stop it. It’s a ton better than “My Hump”. For the love the BlackEyedPeas, YOU choose!
Damn it, I mean it, YOU CHOOSE – take this challenge you comment starved lurkers, if you are reading this, post your theme song, and tell me why. If you want, steal the idea, and get a little posting love out of it, just be sure to link me to your post and drop me a comment to hook up to it.
After all has been said and done, I’m re-thinking my mind about my theme song…try this!

Oh, so good! I am a huge music freak too. And believe it or not, we still listen to vinyl here. Especially my 45 collection. Like "Walk Right In" by the Rooftop Singers. Not my theme song by the way! Or "Smoke Get's In Your Eyes" by the Platters. Good stuff! And just for the record those 80's songs you named...totally hearing 'em in my head. Thanks for that. Hmmm? I'm going to have to think on what my theme song would be.

I love music! I don't know what I would do with out it.

I hate the question what is your all time favorite song? Way too many to pick from.

Great post today!

There are so many good songs I just dont know if I can pick a theme song, I will ponder that thought and make a decision.

I love music too. I use to be in church singing groups which started in my teens...I had many vinyl records. Love those old groups...I don't know what my favorite song would be...I have so many. Very good post...too funny.

It's a Wonderful World, isn't my FAVORITE song...I couldn't choose one child over the other!!

It's my theme song, one that describes me and my outlook on things.

I can't think of my song yet...but if I had to pick one for The Boy, it would be the theme music for the Sanford and Son TV show. The way he struts around, I can almost hear it playing.

I wish I could name a theme song. I'm not so good with music though. The stuff I love best is either classical or jazz, not exactly "theme song" material sadly. But the idea for this post is great. Hmmm... I'll think about this for a while now, I think...
