My great hits collection 1953 to 2007!
This collection has a bit of a different twist as I put significant happenings or some of the history of my life to titles of the hits of those particular years.
I actually burned a CD with the tunes used in this hub. As I only used songs that I like I think it turned out quite good. Although in most cases only the titles and not the whole theme of the song worked itself into my story.
I know you won't want to listen to all of the added music however I hope some of these tunes bring good memories and you have fun with them too.
I believe that 1953 was a significant year as I was born then and a couple of #1 hits of that year (at least their titles) really explain some of me.
This song was to become my quest in life, I want to know all, I need to know all so "Answer me" by Frankie Laine is a true statement and "Rags to riches" by Tony Bennett can only be interpreted this way: I became a tailor (rags) and used my trade to raise my children, who are (my riches).
After the 1956 revolution in Hungary my parents and I crossed the border to Austria "In the still of the night" by The five Satins and from then on my Mom and Dad's philosophy in life became "Que sera sera, Whatever will be will be" by Doris Day.
In '57 we settled in Belgium and were "Searchin" by Coasters not realizing that our dreams there were only going to come true on "The 12th of Never" by Jonny Mathis.
So in '69 you found us "Leaving on a jet plane" by Peter, Paul and Mary for far off Canada where "These Eyes" by Guess Who couldn't take in all the beauty that our new homeland had to offer.
In '73 my dream wedding made "Just you 'n me" by Chicago an Us, but it fast became a "Right place, wrong time" by Dr. John choice and little did I know then that I would have been better off taking the "Midnight train to Georgia" by Gladys Knight and the Pips.
My now X(husband) was boasting "You're having my baby" by Paul Anka in 1974 which was until then the "Best thing that ever happened to me" also by Gladys Knight and the Pips and really came true when they placed my first born into my arms.
In '77 Debbie Boone's croon "You light up my life" became a true statement when my beautiful "Little Queen" by Heart showed up to take the world by storm.
My Dad's "Fantastic Voyage" by Lakeside in this life ended in 1981 a sad, sad day for us all to be sure. His strenghts and know-how are still missed to this day.
In '82 "You've got another thing coming" by Judas Priest if you think I'm going to put up with your c**p any longer so I say "Goodbye to you" by Scandal and that's that.
By the end of '84 I was "Holding out for a hero" by Bonnie Tyler when "Against all odds" by Phil Collins I fell in love again...
My third babe in 1989 became "The wind beneath my wings" by Bette Midler
and even though "I'll be loving you forever" by New kids on the block it's come to the "End of the line" by the Traveling Wilburys for him and I.
"Unforgettable" by Nat and Natalie Cole became synonymous with my Mom when she left us in 1992. A life that didn't have to end so suddenly. Forever in our hearts.
1999 brought a bitter sweet moment for me when "I Do, cherish you" by 98 Degrees made me lose a daughter but then again "I could not ask for more" by Edwin McCain in a Son-in-law.
Life just gets better and what a "Beautiful Day" by U2 when "My Baby" by lil Romeo has her first babe in 2001and we would be so "Incomplete" by the Backstreet boys without babe #2 as she stole our hearts by the "Speed of Sound" by Coldplay in 2005.
And in 2007 I had to send out an "S.O.S." by the Jonas Brothers because the empty-nest-syndrome threatened to take over as I sent off my last baby to College with a "Do it well" wish by Jennifer Lopez.
Also in that same year let me say "Thanks for the Memories" by Fall out boy and on that note I'll "Wind it up" by Gwen Stefani for now.
More can and will be added as new milestones are accomplished.
