The Soundtrack of My Life

I'm probably like many of you when I say that my life has a soundtrack. Most of the time I have one continuously running in my head to accompany everything I do. There are certain songs that everytime I hear them I'm instantly reminded of certain moments in my life. I don't know why. But they're like home. I thought I'd share some of them with you.

Anything by the Doobie Brothers My mother had a major thing for Michael McDonald and used to tell me he was my real father.

The entire Thriller album When I was little we weren't allowed to touch the record player and I remember laying on the floor of the living room and shouting for my mother to come turn the record over.

Hello by Lional Ritchie It reminds me of staying up late to watch Friday Night Videos (before we got MTV)

Chicago's Will You Still Love Me This is the first song off the radio that I ever learned all the words to. I was SO proud of myself I made my cousin sit and listen to me sing it. The whole song. Looking back she probably thought I was a weirdo.

Rush Rush by Paula Abdul My girlfriend and I were completely obsessed with this song the summer it came out. It helps that Keanu Reeves was in the video.

Close to You by Maxie Priest I used to walk to school with my next door neighbor in Jr High. She was a year older than me and was always running late. I'd sit on the toilet in her bathroom and watch her curl and tease her bangs while she played this song. Every day.

Remember the Time by Michael Jackson In the basement of the before-mentioned girlfriend at my first boy/girl party I got my first kiss while this song played in the background.

Poison by Bel Biv Devo and Anything by Boys II Men Reminds me of every single High School Dance

In Your Eyes by Peter Gabriel This song reminds me of the time John Cusack stood outside my room with a boom box over his head...wait, that was a movie...nevermind.

Crash by Dave Matthews Band Makes me think of a certain party and a certain boy from college.

Wonderful Tonight by Eric Clapton When Spiderman and I had been dating for about 2 months we went to a wedding and this song was playing. He said that this would be our wedding song. At the time it kind of freaked me out, but later it WAS our wedding song.

So tell me, what's on your soundtrack?

Where's Rick Astley on the list? It wasn't sunday morning without you blasting that crap through my walls before church.

I stole this idea and put my list on my blog. But I totally gave you credit for it.

It was a fun thing to do!

I touch myself by the D'Vinyls totally reminds me of 6th grade. Of course I don't think I truly understood the whole meaning of the song at the time. I love me some BBD too!
