A life themed in song.

(Fancy-schmancy talk for 'theme song of your life'.)  As I was rooting around in my CD collection, I came across a CD that I hadn't played in a long time.  It's probably one of my all-time favorites:  Eliza Gilkyson's "Land of Milk and Honey".  I played it in the car on the way to work - full blast - and sang along at the top of my lungs.  Luckily for me (and everyone else out on the road this morning), there is little or no traffic on this mountain-top road, so I am at ease belting out a song or talking to myself (animatedly).

One of her songs on this album is what I could easily call the Theme Song of Susan E-I-E-I-OMG's life.  It's called:  Not Lonely.  Of course, on Side B of Theme Song of Susan (etc.)'s life would be the Scarecrow's theme song.

So, what would be the perfect theme song for your life?


  1. Interesting. Mine would be...

  2. Ugh! Stop making me think!! Go back to your wacky reminiscing and wisecracking ramblings!

    Great. Now I'm going to be trying to think of what my theme song would be for the rest of the day.

    What a there a song about constantly having to scrape animal excrement off your shoes? If so, that would be mine.

  3. CR - Ha! No, I won't! How about this: O, what a beautiful morning, o, what a beautiful day...I'm off to the barn now to scrape the s*** off my shoes in the hay... No? They don't call me The Evil Sweeze for nothing.

  4. Keeper of the stars would be the song for my life with my husband.

  5. Ummm, how 'bout "Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer?" But wait. I'm not a grandma . . . and I haven't seen a reindeer around here for a long time.

    Okay, it would be "You'll Never Walk Alone." We had it played before our wedding ceremony much to my mom's chagrin. She claimed it should only be played at funerals. But through nearly 50 years of marriage, hubby and I have been together and have never had to walk alone. (All together now: AWWWWW!)

  6. Michelle - That is a lovely song (and very appropriate :o)

    Mama Pea - Awwwwwwwwww. I admit it made me all sniffly. That is something to be proud of, it is.

  7. I would read this as I'm walking out the door, LOL! This requires more thought than I can give it at this moment, but guess what popped into my head? "Purple People Eater".... I'm really weird so maybe that is indeed my song hahahaha!

  8. I can only pick one? Oh, but I have so many. But really, probably the top would be "Hammer and a Nail" by the Indigo Girls.

    A close second would be The Garden Song- sung by many but this is my favorite:


  9. Oh give me a home,
    where the buffalo roam
    where the deer and the antelope play...

    I wish! :)

  10. "Don't Worry, Be Happy" seems to suit. I've spent 52 years thinking the glass is half full so it doesn't make any sense to change my attitude now.

  11. "Cowboy Take Me Away" by the Dixie Chicks. Found a nice YouTube here:
    AND, I found me a cowboy! :)
