Saw this on Reinventing Fabulous and it sounded so fun I wanted to do it myself.
Make a soundtrack to your life with five songs:
1. A song that lifts you up
“Now and For Always”–The Lord of the Rings musical
I’ve made no secret of the fact that I love the music in the Lord of the Rings musical. This song is my favorite, though, because it’s about the Frodo and Sam relationship, which is about pure love. The affection between these two, the true devotion is just beautiful, and it always makes my heart warm to think about–especially when I hear this song. 🙂
2. A song that makes you dance
“Twistin’ the Night Away”–Sam Cooke
They play this a lot at swing events and as soon as I hear those opening drums I HAVE to run on the dance floor and find someone to dance with. I love the beat, the lyrics, I am dancing right now just thinking about it.
3. A song that makes you sing along
“Be Prepared”–The Lion King soundtrack
This is the first one that popped into my head because anytime this comes on when my nephew is in the car he literally makes me sing. It’s OK, though, because I do a killer Scar. 😉
4. A song for tough times
“Iron Men Theme (Instrumental)”–Black Sabbath/Ramin Djawadi
So when having a rough time I like to go for a long drive with the windows down and crank the hell out of this song. It’s perfect. The guitar riffs and the drum solos soothe my soul. True story.
5. A feisty, ass-kicker song to inspire you.
“Follow Your Arrow”–Kacey Musgraves
I will let the song lyrics do the talking for me here:
“You’re damned if you do
And you’re damned if you don’t
So you might as well just do whatever you want…
Make lots of noise
Kiss lots of boys
Or kiss lots of girls if that’s what you’re in to…
Just follow your arrow wherever it points.
So those are mine. What are yours? 🙂
