“If they were to make a movie of your life what would the soundtrack be like? Share 10 songs that best tell the story of your life. Be sure to include the period or event that each song represents”.
Yay!! It makes me all giddy inside!
It was tough narrowing it down to 10 (ok I couldn't narrow it down to 10! I feel like there are so many more songs I want to add), and I feel like its mostly country music. Especially Brad Paisley because he seems to be going thru the same stuff in life at the same time we are. Plus I like his songs and can relate to them. (almost too well!)
So here the list goes!
10. Wake Me Up Before You Go Go - Wham
This was my favorite song as a kid. My aunt was a teenager when I was born, and taught me how to sing it.
9. Wide Open Spaces - Dixie Chicks
This was the first concert I was allowed to go to with my friends in high school. We got to drive all the way to Tacoma (its like 2 hours away!) It was also around the time we were going to be graduating so it hit home
8. Dirt Road Anthem - Jason Aldean
As soon as this song came out I INSTANTLY thought about high school and growing up in a small town. We used to go out and hang out at the end of dirt roads, or out in the woods.
7. Mud on the Tires - Brad Paisley
This song came out right as my husband and I started dating. And he happened to have gotten a new Chevrolet. Seemed to fit us at the time.
6.Warning - Incubus
Bought tickets to see Incubus for Casey when we were dating. I broke my tooth that date, but still went to the concert even though the vibrations hurt like heck!
5. Little Moments - Brad Paisley
This is the song Casey and I danced to at our wedding. We aren't really super sappy types, this explains us
4. Grow Old With You - Adam Sandler
I loved this song at our wedding
3. Not Ready To Make Nice - Dixie Chicks
We went thru losing a lot of friends about 5 years ago, do to a stupid union strike. This song came out about then and just reminds me of how I felt. Plus I LOVE anything by the Dixie Chicks!
2. Anything Like Me - Brad Paisley
This song came out at the same time as finding out we were find out Jakah's gender!
1. I Just Call You Mine - Martina McBride
Whenever I head this song I think of Jakah. Its how I feel after I had him.
Extra!! Just couldn't leave these off!
Smile - Uncle Kracker
This song also makes me think of Jakah!
Lullaby - Dixie Chicks
And I cried my eyes out to this song when my sweet nephew was born. I think of him every time I hear it
Benny and the Jets - Elton Jon Jakah giggles hysterically every time this song comes on. Its hilarious
Poor Little Broken Truck - Caspar Babypants
Jakah loves Caspar Babypants. Who by the way used to be the lead singer for The Presidents of the United States of America. He travels around Washington and plays shows at libraries among other places. I took Jakah to see him.
I do listen to lots of other music, but obviously Brad Paisley is pretty high on my list. I feel like every time something big in our lives is happening, he has a song coming out about it at the same time. Now if only my husband would take me to a concert to see him!
