Goosie’s Top Twenty Theme Songs…
If there was a movie to be made about my life, these songs would most likely comprise the soundtrack. I’m not trying to be dramatic~ but let’s face it, I’ve led a pretty effin’ full life thus far. Probably have encountered more adventures, heart ache, and funnnnnnn than most people. I’m lucky to still be around to compile this list of songs for my make-believe movie soundtrack~ LOL! C’mon you know you shook your head “uh-huh!” while you read that! After I finish this blog post, the only thing left to do is figure out the actress who will play me in the movie! Some say Holly Hunter, Some Say Gwen Stefani or Emma Stone or Jennifer Lawrence, and then others say…Reese Witherspoon (this WILL be the topic of an upcoming blog post my friends! hehe).
In the meantime, let’s talk music. Music has been a HUGE… like… GINORMOUS part of my entire life.
Nope, I don’t and haven’t ever played any musical instruments with the exception of the recorder, my Granny & Papa’s “Fun Machine” organ by Hammond. (don’t laugh, I was the entertainment at certain family gatherings… even though my Uncle Bud used to ask me everytime, “Do you know how to play “far away?” hehehehe. ) and even though it is in my attic as I type this, I have no desire whatsoever to bust it out and play a rhumba with drums for you~ although, I very well could. My instrument of choice, is my voice (haaa, that rhymed) . I love to sing, especially the blues and gospel~ and pretty much accompany anyone as a backup or alongside anything acoustic. I have also been known to play a mighty tambourine under pressure as well. What can I say… Music inspires me, music drives me, music relaxes and centers me. I dig all sorts of genres and can relate to just about any style of music. It speaks to my soul. I know that probably sounds cheesy as hell but it’s true~ LOL! My BFF is always teasing me when I post a song online because I always say, “This is totally my theme song, I could have written it!” ~ she says, “you say that about EVERY song!” ~~ well, truth of the matter is so many songs seem to be written about situations or from perspectives I can totally relate to, and it seems that they are my theme song! Dont’ hit the panic button just yet… no I’m not pulling a Charlie Manson thinking the Beatles wrote the “White Album” as a message just to me… it’s not like that at all. It’s not about anything but music and what it does to my emotions, my soul and my heart.
So, Here’s the challenge, if YOU were to pick 20 songs to be on the box set of YOUR life story/movie, what songs would be on it? what would they reflect meaningful or meaningless(?) in YOUR life? Why would you choose the songs you picked? Comment up above my headshot, under the title and let me know!
So let’s get this party started…I give you my life, set to music… the Box Set
