This week’s hostess, the Crown Princess, has what I think is an uber-neato name for her blog. And this week’s assignment is neat-o as well. She wants to know what ONE song most describes us, our theme song, if you will.
I had to take a poll to figure this one out. The checs voted for The Four Seasons’ “Oh What a Night” since that song mentions in a vague way my birthday, and the chorus of Uncle Kracker’s “Follow Me”…..so I asked my mom (when all else fails, go ask mom). Without hesitation she came right back at me with something that really fit. Something that, the more I think about it, the more I realize she’s really got me pegged.
Scott Joplin’s “The Entertainer.” (Here you can see a video of a guy playing it on the piano).
Other songs I briefly considered, not necessarily in any order, are: Billy Joel’s “She’s Always a Woman”, Mike & the Mechanics’ “The Living Years”, Kool & the Gang’s “Celebration” (this was our senior class theme song from high school), the arrangement of “Lord of the Dance” from Michael Flatley’s Irish Dance spectacular, and the following hymns: “Savior, Like a Shepherd Lead Us”, “Jesus Makes My Heart Rejoice”, “Come Now to Us, O Christ”, and “Give Me Your Body, O Christ”. Oh, and I forget who sang this, but there’s one more…..”The Hand That Rocks the Cradle (Rules the World)”.
Having been entertained by my entry, off you go to see what others have listed! Have a wonderful week!
