Tuesday 10 - My Soundtrack


Tuesday 10 - My Life's Soundtrack
I love music, soooso much.  
Here are ten songs that have been/are a major part of my life in no specific order.

1.  Werewolves of London - Warren Zevon
My Dad & I used to listen to this song on our record player when I was little, and I loved it, still do.  But more than that I love the memory.  Sitting in our dining room listening to records with my Dad is one of my best childhood memories.  Probably the reason I love music, classic rock in particular so much.
2.  Black Velvet - Allanah Myles
I have a very clear memory of my Mom & Aunt singing this song in my Aunt's van on our way to the beach when I was little.  It's stuck with me and been one of my favs ever since.
3.  Into the Mystic - Van Morrison
This the song for our "first dance" at our wedding.  When we first started dating we listening to Van Morrison a lot.
4.  I'll Stand By You - The Pretenders
This is the song I danced to with my Dad at my wedding.  The lyrics fit us perfectly.
5.  Heard it in a Love Song - Marshall Tucker Band
Me and my girlfriend made a career(not a paying one) of going to this local dive bar.  Every single time I entered those doors, I ran to the juke box and this is the first song I played.
6.  Baby Blue - DMB
Reminds me of Max, my "baby blue".  The lyrics really are beautiful.
7.  Hallelujah - Jeff Buckley
I love this song.  For no specific reason other than it moves me.
8.  Sara - Fleetwood Mac
I've loved this song since I was little.  Everytime I hear it it takes me back to all the amazing memories I've had as a child, teen, and now as an adult.
9.  Crazy Love - Van Morrison
This is the song I walked down the aisle to.  Again, we listening to Van Morrison a lot.  This was our song, we danced the night away in a local dive bar(not the same one as above) with this song playing on the juke box, swearing one day we'd get married to it(and we did!)
10.  Spirit in the Night - Bruce Springsteen
This is "my" song.  I love it.  It makes me think of summers and being young and stupid.  Which I definitely was at one point.

There's my life - summed up in songs...  


  1. This post is inspiring. Makes me wonder what playlist would summarize my vida loca! Hmmmm ...

    1. Glad you liked it, I had fun writing it and figuring out all the songs that defined/fit my life. It was like therapy!

  2. Totally with you on Hallelujah.
    There's a certain key change that always makes me choke up - just the music on its own. Amazing.

    Great list!
