Soundtrack of my Life – Entry #12 – Let’s Go Crazy – Prince

I was an 80's teen, raised on Michael Jackson, B52s and the GoGos. But above all, I loved Prince. While his songs were (are) a bit racy, the contagious beat couldn't be denied and to this day when I hear one of his songs... I have to dance! This was one of my all-time favorites… Continue reading Soundtrack of my Life – Entry #12 – Let’s Go Crazy – Prince

Soundtrack of my Life – Entry #8 – Can’t Stop the World – The Go-Go’s

It is hard to believe "the eighties" are now ancient history. That the people I knew growing up are sneaking up towards retirement, have had children of their own, and perhaps even grandchildren. That the bands we listened to and the stars we watched at the movies are now adorning the cover of the AARP Magazine (not… Continue reading Soundtrack of my Life – Entry #8 – Can’t Stop the World – The Go-Go’s

Soundtrack of my Life – Entry #7 – Something More – Sugarland

Sometimes life can be so automatic, so much of a routine, that you can easily lose track of your purpose. At least I found this to be true. And nothing is more able to get you back on track with your purpose than a crisis. I have also found this to be true...sad to say more times than… Continue reading Soundtrack of my Life – Entry #7 – Something More – Sugarland

Soundtrack of my Life – Entry #5 – Star Wars Theme Song

There are times when music can move me to tears. There is also music that can make my pulse quicken and bring a sense of childhood excitement to the front of my psyche. For me, the Star Wars main theme, played at the beginning of every movie of the franchise, does just that. Each and every time.… Continue reading Soundtrack of my Life – Entry #5 – Star Wars Theme Song

Soundtrack of my Life – Entry #4 – Mele Kalikimaka – Bing Crosby

The beginning of my childhood was spent on an island, Oahu to be precise, and I didn't know what it meant to wear shoes until I moved to the mainland at the age of 8. I also didn't realize that Christmases could be white, that evergreens weren't always palm trees, and that on the 5th day… Continue reading Soundtrack of my Life – Entry #4 – Mele Kalikimaka – Bing Crosby

Soundtrack of my Life – Entry #1 – I’ve Lived – One Republic

If there is one song that sums up my mind set, it's I’ve Lived by OneRepublic. For those who know me this will come as no surprise. For those who don’t, it's a way for you to get to know the person behind the writing. Music is a way to communicate, to express feelings and emotions… Continue reading Soundtrack of my Life – Entry #1 – I’ve Lived – One Republic
