My soundtrack

I've long insisted that each person should have a soundtrack for their life. Does anyone else hear certain songs while your driving with the windows down? Or when you're taking a long walk? Well, I do and it's okay if you think I'm crazy. I know I'm not.

I'm compiled a list of songs that would be on my soundtrack. Now, I'm trying to put them in order. It only seems appropriate that some songs should go in the beginning and some should wait until the end. Either way, here is the list I've started, in no particular order:

1. It had to be you - Harry Connick, Jr.
2.Take on me - Ah-ha
3. Manic Monday - Bangles
4. Take a chance on me - ABBA

14. Happy Together - Turtles
15. All Bow Down - Chris Tomlin

61. All together now - Beatles
62. Travelin Band - CCR
63. Looking out my back door - CCR
64. Captivate us - Watermark
65. Cherokee - Peter Cincotti

Whew! I wish I could say that those were all the songs, but I bet I could think of a few more with a little time. :) I really love music and I think that some of these songs sum up my life well (Ice Ice Baby...hello?). Someday, I'm going to put all of these songs on CD's and listen to them happily. I'll keep thinking of songs, let me know if you think of any good ones!

Holy cats, you are a bigger music freak than I am! I am laughing at your delightfully eclectic soul.

I just mailed you a big fat envelope full of stuff. be on the look out for it!

That's a really excellent list. I'm not a music girl at all, and I knew most of those--so I know they're all good-ies. :-)

I got one for you, but I don't know if you can use it since it is one of my top 5. I guess I'll let you if you want: She's Always a Woman to Me (I guess that's the title) by Billy Joel. "She's frequently kind and she's suddenly cool. She can do as she pleases, she's nobody's fool." Love it.
