We normally have theme songs with our partner in life. Now, what would the theme song to your own life be? Mine would probably be: "Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? Caught in a landslide. No escape from reality. Open your eyes. Look up to the skies and see......" - you bet, Bohemian Rhapsody though I didn't kill the man! (:
I love this question.
I have two theme songs and they apply to different moods.
My "happy everything is going my way" song is "It's a beautiful life" by Ace of Base.
My "don't mess with me" song is "It's my Life" by Jon Bonjovi.
"Good Day Sunshine" is my favorite. At least it is what I try to live up to. You know the old adage, that urges you to try and be as good a person as your dog thinks you are..... And I DO believe that most people are about as happy as they decide to be. (kinda trite but they work!)
'I Can't Stand Up For Falling Down' by Elvis Costello. That would sure be mine.
"A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes" - Disney's Cinderella:
"No matter how your heart is grieving, if you keep on believing, the dream that you wish will come true!"
Love this question, CrisSP! Thank you for encouraging me to think about this.
Hello heavenleigh, I've almost forgotten about that song and thanks for reminding me...isn't it amazing how songs could actually have that huge impact in our lives? I'm enjoying this thread and exchange of theme songs to ourselves. Glad to see you here.
It really is a fun idea you came up with!
I remember singing the Cinderella song for my daughter's 2nd birthday, I believe. I got part way through and then got a little teary looking into her baby-girl eyes. Every time we've gone to Disneyland for a family vacation - it's been a special song for my daughter and I. She turns 22 this month.
Songs can give us hope - and allow us to feel so deeply and cry things out too sometimes. Big impact, yes! Again, thank you for this forum question!
Right now and for the last while, since my hubby passed away one of my favourites songs that I sing out loud to, because it makes me feel good, is "Smile - though your heart is aching - smile even though it's breaking" sung by Il Volo - in fact I put it on my website. : )
Classic craiglyn...you're a woman of courage! Smile, though your heart is breakin'--Love to you from the sky~
I LOVE that song too, Craiglyn. Sending thoughts of comfort and healing to you.
Would have to say two theme songs here, also. The first would be the Bee Gee's "I Started A Joke", and the second would be Jim Croce's "I Got A Name." It would simply be a matter of scenario as to which would be played at the appropriate time.
Oh, those are two good songs and I love Ace of base. Thanks for reminding me of them. I'd get their song in my Jukebox Page.
DS Duby, now, you make me feel like rockin' "The secret side of me, I never let you see. I keep it caged but I can't control it". Lol!
A vintage song from Hawai'i, "Waialua Sky," plus the classic Simon & Garfunkel hit, "Homeward Bound," pretty much sums up the Hawaiian Odysseus theme. A close third would be "Honolulu City Lights."
Aloha and mahalo for asking the question, my friend! Keep flying the friendly skies!
My two are:
'I'm Still Alive' - Pearl Jam
'I Remain' - Alanis Morrisette
I wouldn't call this a theme song but I do feel that Adele was spying on me when she wrote it. Everything in the song is about my broken heart and the fact that the guy is now married with kids. The song is "Someone like you".
Yup, I know that song. I hubbed about it sometime back. Oopps, not intending to promote my work but the story behind that song will probably make you stagger with all honesty in the song. Adele made it for you--bullseye, eh? Beautiful song, beautiful artist!
By and far the song that best describes me is Sarah Blasko's All I Want. Few songs captured my feelings about life so spot-on.
My song definitely is I will Survive by Gloria Gaynor. It really inspires me and I will and have survived thus far.
"I'm A Believer" Speaks to me because my love life is wonderful, as The Monkees song suggests. But the term "Believer" also signifies my Spiritual connection, which is right on target in my life.
"I'm gonna soak up the sun" Sheryl Crowe..."I'm gonna soak up the sun..tell everyone to lighten up..I've got no one to blame..everytime I feel lame I'm looking up" My favorite line.."its not getting what you want, its wanting what you've got"...Always makes me smile

I have been in a relationship for about a year and a half. at first everything was great and all did was think about her. At that time i was still in high school and i didn't have a care in the world. I had a part time job and more than enough time to devote to a relationship. We both fell deeply...

Is marrying someone you don't love the ultimate definition of settling?Recently a question was asked on HP: Is it more important for you to marry someone who loves you than to marry someone (you) love? A few folks stated they'd rather be with someone (who loves them) rather than they themselves...

What commits you to the relationship you are in?What do you believe makes a strong, committed relationship? Is it a physical connection? Emotional connection? Financial connection? Would you stay with someone even if they could no longer work, be intimate and go out with you...
