If My Life Were a Musical...

Okay, so I'm killing some time here for just a second because I just got done with an awesome workout and I always think of weird, random things while jamming to my tunes. (here's a peek inside my strange brain...)

While sweating and pounding it out, I was thinking, "If my life were a musical, what songs would I pick?" The music would have to be some sort of reflection my life and personality and such.

The musical would have to be short (I can't stand things that drag out), colorful, and have some soft moments here and there.

So, in no particular order, and probably missing a few important songs, here are some that I'd definitely use for my story: (and...there WOULD be a disco ball in my musical)

Theme Song: "What a Feeling" by Ilene Cara - the DJ Bobo mix

"Celebration" - Kool and the Gang
"Good Times" - Chic
"Dancing Queen" - Abba - done by Mix Master Chris
"Stayin' Alive" - Bee Gees
"Learning to Fly" - Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers
"Life is a Highway" - Tom Cochrane
"Flies On the Butter" - Wynonna
"Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" - Cyndi Lauper
"Small Town Girl" - Kellie Pickler
"Colorful" - Rocco DeLuca & the Burden

and the closing:
"Meyer: Short Trip Home" - Meyer (from Smart Symphonies)

Humor me here - What's YOUR theme song?!

Okay, enough fiddling around. Back to work. I have to get my apron in the mail!!!

I am not sure what I would pick for a theme song for my life...mainly because I can't even THINK of any other songs than those from the musical WICKED. My husband and I went this past weekend and LOVED IT...but as a result we have been singing the songs non-stop. We just seem to alter all the songs to fit our life. Like today my hands were full and I asked my husband to do something for my son--but my husband happened to be busy too and started singing "I'm limited" (the line that sings UNLIMITED from Wicked). And any time we get a phone call we sing "POPULAR"...THINGS LIKE THAT. Just makes me laugh...

Would love to hear some other song ideas because I have GOT to get this awesome music OUT of my head!

Hmmmm, how about "She Works Hard For The Money.".... Except I'm not actually earning any money...

My musical would totally be made up of 80's songs!

"let's groove" by earth, wind, and fire. i think that speaks for itself

Okay, the only thing that I can think of here is "Another One Bites the Dust"!!! I am typically very clumsy, but being pregnant only makes me clumsier and this song just seems to fit that!! Seriously, as my belly grows, the walls and furniture are just more likely to get in my way!! :)

OMgosh.....I always feel like I have a radio in my head. I sang for a living for umpteen years and it still goes on and on and on.....too funny.
My song would be some jam mix that confuses people.........LOL
