What's Your Theme Song?

So....if you were prancing down the street...ready to take life head on....what would your theme song be? You know, like Mary Tyler Moore throwing her hat in the air..."You're Gonna Make It After All". Or Rocky....everyone remembers Rocky!

Mine would be "Don't Rain On My Parade". From Funny Girl, written by Bob Merrill. It is the sound of a determined woman taking life back from the people who tell her she isn't good enough! It is the sound of belief! In herself!


Don't tell me not to live, just sit and putter,
Life's candy and the sun's a ball of butter.
Don't bring around a cloud to rain on my parade.

Don't tell me not to fly-- I've simply got to.
If someone takes a spill, it's me and not you.
Who told you you're allowed to rain on my parade!

I'll march my band out, I'll beat my drum,
And if I'm fanned out, Your turn at bat, sir.
At least I didn't fake it.
Hat, sir, I guess I didn't make it!

But whether I'm the rose of sheer perfection,
Or freckle on the nose of life's complexion,
The cinder or the shiny apple of its eye,
I gotta fly once, I gotta try once,
Only can die once, right, sir?

Ooh, love is juicy, juicy, and you see
I gotta have my bite, sir!
Get ready for me, love, 'cause I'm a "comer"
I simply gotta march, my heart's a drummer.
Don't bring around a cloud to rain on my parade!

I'm gonna live and live now,
Get what I want--I know how,
One roll for the whole shebang,
One throw, that bell will go clang,
Eye on the target--and wham--
One shot, one gun shot, and bam--
Hey, Mister Arnstein, here I am!

I'll march my band out, I will beat my drum,
And if I'm fanned out, your turn at bat, sir,
At least I didn't fake it.
Hat, sir, I guess I didn't make it.

Get ready for me, love, 'cause I'm a "comer"
I simply gotta march, my heart's a drummer.
Nobody, no, nobody
Is gonna rain on my parade!


So...tell me! What would your theme song be and why? And I just decided that on May 9th when they tell me to count backwards....I'm gonna sing this song instead!!!!

Well, since there has been over 41 1/2 inches of rain here in Aberdeen since the first of Jan, I should choose "Singing In the Rain" like Gene Kelly, but instead I just have to live up to my "forte" I guess.
So put me down for
"BEER BARREL POLKA” (aka Roll out the barrel”
as done by both Frankie Yankovic and The Andrews Sisters
AND A FEW HUNDRED MORE

Roll out the barrel, we'll have a barrel of fun
Roll out the barrel, we've got the blues on the run
Zing boom tararrel, ring out a song of good cheer
Now's the time to roll the barrel, for the gang's all here

There's a garden, what a garden
Only happy faces bloom there
And there's never any room there
For a worry or a gloom there

Oh there's music and there's dancing
And a lot of sweet romancing
When they play the polka
They all get in the swing

Roll out the barrel, we'll have a barrel of fun
Roll out the barrel, we've got the blues on the run
Zing boom tararrel, ring out a song of good cheer
Now's the time to roll the barrel, for the gang's all here

Every time they hear that com-pa-pa
Everybody feels so tra-la-la
They want to throw their cares away
They all go lah-de-ah-de-ay

Then they hear a rumble on the floor
It's the big surprise they're waiting for
And all the couples form a ring
For miles around you'll hear them sing

Roll out the barrel, we'll have a barrel of fun
Roll out the barrel, we've got the blues on the run
Zing boom tararrel, ring out a song of good cheer
Now's the time to roll the barrel, for the gang's all here

'NUFF TALK, LETS PARTY

DAYS LIKE THIS
Van Morrison


When it痴 not always raining there値l be days like this
When there痴 no one complaining there値l be days like this
When everything falls into place like the flick of a switch
Well my mama told me there値l be days like this

When you don稚 need to worry there値l be days like this
When no one痴 in a hurry there値l be days like this
When you don稚 get betrayed by that old judas kiss
Oh my mama told me there値l be days like this

When you don稚 need an answer there値l be days like this
When you don稚 meet a chancer there値l be days like this
When all the parts of the puzzle start to look like they f it
Then I must remember there値l be days like this

When everyone is up front and they池e not playing tricks
When you don稚 have no freeloaders out to get their kicks
When it痴 nobody痴 business the way that you wanna live
I just have to remember there値l be days like this

When no one steps on my dreams there値l be days like this
When people understand what I mean there値l be days like this
When you ring out the changes of how everything is
Well my mama told me there値l be days like this

Oh my mama told me
There値l be days like this
Oh my mama told me
There値l be days like this
Oh my mama told me
There値l be days like this
Oh my mama told me

(I'm a mellow sort of person.)


P.S. I'll be singing with you, Girlfriend.

angel,
Good grief, most of the time it is some show tune from a classic musical of one variety or another. I do catch myself singing this one frequently when I'm out and about (although prancing is not something I do).

Simon & Garfunkel's
59th Street Bridge Song:

Slow down, you move too fast.
You got to make the morning last.
Just kicking down the cobble stones.
Looking for fun and feelin’ groovy.
Hello lamppost,
What cha knowing?
I’ve come to watch your flowers growing.
Ain’t cha got no rhymes for me?
Doot-in’ doo-doo,
Feelin’ groovy.

Got no deeds to do,
No promises to keep.
I’m dappled and drowsy and ready to sleep.
Let the morning time drop all it’s petals on me.
Life, I love you,
All is groovy.

Shocker, huh!?
Hugs,
Cozy


angelofmercy5 replies on 4/11/2006 8:50 pm:
No shocker here Cozy! With you life, I love you and all is
groovy!

Angel, I would say that Simon and Garfunkle's Bridge over Troubled Water would probably best fit.

When you're weary
Feeling small
When tears are in your eyes
I'll dry them all
I'm on your side
Oh..When times get rough
And friends just can't be found
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

When you're down and out
When you're on the street
When evening falls so hard
I will comfort you

I'll take your part
When the darkness comes
And pain is all around
Like a bridge over troubled water

I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

Sail on
Silver girl
Sail on by
Your time has come to shine
All your dreams are on their way
See how they shine
If you need a friend,
I'm sailing right behind
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind


angelofmercy5 replies on 4/11/2006 8:53 pm:
VAT....I have always loved this one. It can mean many things to you at different times in your life...or even your day. Can I be your Silver girl?

In similar cases i bring the following to my mind.

2Timesfull
Won't get fooled again by the Who

We'll be fighting in the streets
With our children at our feet
And the morals that they worship will be gone
And the men who spurred us on
Sit in judgement of all wrong
They decide and the shotgun sings the song

I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get fooled again

The change, it had to come
We knew it all along
We were liberated from the foe, that's all
And the world looks just the same
And history ain't changed
'Cause the banners, they all flown in the last war

I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get fooled again
No, no!

I'll move myself and my family aside
If we happen to be left half alive
I'll get all my papers and smile at the sky
For I know that the hypnotized never lie

Do ya?

Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!

There's nothing in the street
Looks any different to me
And the slogans are replaced, by-the-bye
And the party on the left
Is now the party on the right
And the beards have all grown longer overnight

I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get fooled again
Don't get fooled again
No, no!

Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!

Meet the new boss
Same as the old boss

for obvious reasons - has to be Eye of the Tiger - by Survivor - faced so many challenges to overcome

Eye of the Tiger (rocky)

Risin' up, back on the street
Did my time, took my chances
Went the distance, now I'm back on my feet
Just a man and his will to survive

So many times, it happens too fast
You change your passion for glory
Don't lose your grip on the dreams of the past
You must fight just to keep them alive

It's the eye of the tiger, it's the cream of the fight
Risin' up to the challenge of our rival
And the last known survivor stalks his prey in the night
And he's watchin' us all in the eye of the tiger

Face to face, out in the heat
Hangin' tough, stayin' hungry
They stack the odds 'til we take to the street
For we kill with the skill to survive

Risin' up, straight to the top
Have the guts, got the glory
Went the distance, now I'm not gonna stop
Just a man and his will to survive

The eye of the tiger

I am going with the song chosen for mine and Mr. Fire's wedding.
Tim McGraw, It's Your Love:
Dancin' In The Dark
Middle Of The Night
Takin' Your Heart
Holdin' It Tight
Emotional Touch
Touchin' My Skin
Askin' You To Do
What You'Ve Been Doin'
All Over Again
Oh, It'S A Beautiful Thing
Don'T Think I Can Keep It All In
I'Ve Just Gotta Let You Know
What It Is That Won'T Let Me Go
(Chorus)
It'S Your Love
Just Does Somethin' To Me
Sends A Shock Right Through Me
Can'T Get Enough
And If You Wonder
About The Spell I'M Under
It'S Your Love
Better Than I Was
More Than I Am
All Of That Happened
By Takin' Your Hand
Who I Am Now
Is Who I'Ve Wanted To Be
Now That We'Re Together
Stronger Than Ever, Happy And Free
Oh, It'S A Beautiful Thing
Don'T Think I Can Keep It All In
And If You Ask Me Why I'Ll Change
All I Gotta Do Is Say Your Sweet Name
(Repeat Chorus)

My anthem to me and others:

Every day is so wonderful
And suddenly, i saw debris
Now and then, I get insecure
From all the pain, I'm so ashamed

I am beautiful no matter what they say
Words can't bring me down
I am beautiful in every single way
Yes, words can't bring me down
So don't you bring me down today

To all your friends, you're delirious
So consumed in all your doom
Trying hard to fill the emptiness
The piece is gone left the puzzle undone
That's the way it is

You are beautiful no matter what they say
Words can't bring you down
You are beautiful in every single way
Yes, words can't bring you down
Don't you bring me down today...

No matter what we do
(no matter what we do)
No matter what they say
(no matter what they say)
When the sun is shining through
Then the clouds won't stay

And everywhere we go
(everywhere we go)
The sun won't always shine
(sun won't always shine)
But tomorrow will find a way

All the other times

'cause we are beautiful no matter what they say
Yes, words won't bring us down, oh no
We are beautiful in every single way
Yes, words can't bring us down
Don't you bring me down today

Don't you bring me down today
Don't you bring me down today

Angel ~ I was outvoted by my family and friends. They said, "HOW could THAT be your theme song. We tell you your what your theme song is all of the time!" So at their request (and sorry for double-posting) here is "their" theme song for me:

EXTRAORDINARY
Liz Phair


You think that I go home at night
Take off my clothes, turn out the lights
But I burn letters that I write
To you, to make you love me

Yeah, I drive naked through the park
And run the stop sign in the dark
Stand in the street, yell out my heart
To make, to make you love me

I am extraordinary, if you'd ever get to know me
I am extraordinary, I am just your ordinary
Average every day sane psycho
Supergoddess
Average every day sane psycho

You may not believe in me
But I believe in you
So I still take the trash out
Does that make me too normal for you?

So dig a little deeper, cause
You still don't get it yet
See me lickin' my lips, need a primitive fix
And I'll make, I'll make you love me

I am extraordinary, if you'd ever get to know me
I am extraordinary, I am just your ordinary
Average every day sane psycho
Supergoddess
Average every day sane psycho
Supergoddess

See me jump through hoops for you
You stand there watching me performing
What exactly do you do?
Have you ever thought it's you that's boring?
Who the hell are you?

I am extraordinary, if you'd ever get to know me
I am extraordinary, I am just your ordinary
Average every day sane psycho
Supergoddess
Average every day sane psycho

Average every day sane psycho
Supergoddess
Average every day sane psycho

Average every day sane psycho
Supergoddess
Average every day sane psycho

Average every day sane psycho

by all rights, I could have been dead a couple of times
and this is just the only song that seems to say it all.



Along the way, there have been many others..I'm like an Ally

or out of the streets


Just a little food for thought.............
If you really want to be happy, nobody can stop you...

Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head
by Hal David

Raindrops keep falling on my head... And just like the guy whose feet
are too big for his bed, nothing seems to fit. Those raindrops are
falling on my head, they keep falling.

So I just did me some talking to the sun. And I said I didn't like the
way, he got things done... sleeping on the job... those raindrops are
falling on my head, they keep falling.

But there's one thing I know: The blues they send to meet me won't
defeat me. It won't be long till happiness sleps up to greet me.

Raindrops keep falling on my head but that doesn't mean my eyes will
soon be turning red. Crying's not for me cause I'm never gonna stop
the rain by complaining. Because I'm free. Nothing's worrying
me.

Truly,


Come play naked in the sunshine and dance naked under the stars.

Artist: P.O.D. Lyrics
Song: Alive Lyrics

Everyday is a new day
I'm thankful for
Every breath I take
I won't take you for granted (I won't take you for granted)
So I learn from my mistakes
It's beyond my control
Sometimes it's best to let go
Whatever happens
In this lifetime
So I trust in love (so I trust in love)
You have given me
Peace of mind

Chorus:
I feel so alive
For the very first time
I can't deny you
I feel so alive
I feel so alive
For the very first time
And I think I can fly (fly)

Sunshine upon my face (sunshine upon my face)
A new song for me to sing
Tell the world
How I feel inside (Tell the world how I feel inside)
Even though it might
Cost me everything
Now that I know this
So beyond, I can't hold this
I can never
Turn my back away
Now that I've seen you (Now that I've seen you)
I can neva look away

Repeat chorus

Now that I know you
(I could never
Turn my back away)
Now that I see you
(I could neva look away)
Now that I know you
(I could neva
Turn my back away)
Now that I see you
(I believe no matta
What they say!)

Repeat chorus twice

I've chosen this song because I have often had to say a good-bye in order to say a hello.

The Power of Good-bye by Madonna

Your heart is not open so I must go
The spell has been broken, I loved you so
Freedom comes when you learn to let go
Creation comes when you learn to say no

You were my lesson I had to learn
I was your fortress you had to burn
Pain is a warning that something's wrong
I pray to God that it won't be long
Do ya wanna go higher?

Chorus:

There's nothing left to try
There's no place left to hide
There's no greater power
Than the power of good-bye

Your heart is not open so I must go
The spell has been broken, I loved you so
You were my lesson I had to learn
I was your fortress

Chorus2:

There's nothing left to lose
There's no more heart to bruise
There's no greater power
Than the power of good-bye

Learn to say good-bye
I yearn to say good-bye

(chorus, substituting 'no more places' for 'no place left')
(chorus2)

Mine has always been:



BORN TO BE WILD

From the 1968 release "Steppenwolf"




Words and music by Mars Bonfire

Get your motor runnin'
Head out on the highway
Lookin' for adventure
And whatever comes our way
Yeah Darlin' go make it happen
Take the world in a love embrace
Fire all of your guns at once
And explode into space

I like smoke and lightning
Heavy metal thunder
Racin' with the wind
And the feelin' that I'm under
Yeah Darlin' go make it happen
Take the world in a love embrace
Fire all of your guns at once
And explode into space

Like a true nature's child
We were born, born to be wild
We can climb so high
I never wanna die

Born to be wild
Born to be wild

Refusing to let drama in my life anymore, it would have to be Mary J. Blige's No More Drama!!!

So tired, tired of these dramas
No more, no more
I wanna be free
I'm so tired, so tired

Broken heart again
Another lesson learn
Better know your friends
Or else you will get burn
Gotta count on me
Cause I can guarantee
That I'll be fine

No more pain (no more pain)
No more pain (no more pain)
No drama (no more drama in my life)
No one's gonna make me hurt again

What a player fool
Go through ups and downs
Nowhere and all the time
You wouldn't be around
Or maybe I like the stress
Cause I was young and restless
But there was long ago
I don't wanna cry no more

No more pain (no more pain)
No more game (no more game messin with my mind)
No drama (no more drama in my life)
Nooone's gonna make me hurt again
No more tears (no more tears, I'm tired of cryin everynight)
No more fears (no more fears, I really don't wanna cry)
No drama (no more drama in my life)
I don't ever wanna hurt again
Wanna speak my mind, wanna speak my mind

Uh, it feel so good
When you let go
Avoid these drama in your life
Now you're free from all the pain
Free from all the game
Free from all the stress
So bye your happiness
I don't know
Only God knows where the story is
For me, but I know where the story begins
It's up to us to choose
Whatever we win or loose
And I choose to win

No more pain (no more pain)
No more game (tired of your playin' game with my mind)
No drama (no more drama in my life)
No more, no more, No more, no more
No more tears (no more tears, no more cryin every night)
No more fears (no more waking be up in the morning)
No drama, no more in my life

No more drama, no more drama
No more drama, no more drama
NO MORE DRAMA
NO MORE DRAMA
NO MORE DRAMA
NO MORE DRAMA
NO MORE DRAMA
No more drama in my life
So tired, tired of these drama

Since I see my life in terms of the MGM version of the Wizard of Oz, it would have to be Optimistic Voices. You know, the really cool upbeat thing when they're approaching the Emerald City:

You're out of the woods,
You're out of the dark,
You're out of the night.
Step into the sun,
Step into the light.
Keep straight ahead for the most glorious place
On the Face of the Earth or the sky.
Hold onto your breath,
Hold onto your heart,
Hold onto your hope.
March up to the gate and bid it open.


It took me YEARS to find those words. Aren't they great?

Yeah, I'm still [blog 1hotwahine]

1hotwahine....yep! The melody came flooding back with the very first words! Isn't it funny how many of us think of songs from the Wizard of Oz?

Break-Away....says alot to me...

And..."You are my Sunshine".... for all the sweet memories...

I make mistakes, I am out of control & at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best. ~Marilyn

Both good choices impish! But "You are my Sunshine" just really fits who you are. We used to have to sing that over and over for my little grandson!

My all time theme song, for good times and bad
Rascal Flatts, "I'm Moving On"

I've dealt with my ghosts and I've faced all my demons
Finally content with a past I regret
I've found you find strength in your moments of weakness
For once I'm at peace with myself
I've been burdened with blame, trapped in the past for too long
I'm movin' on

I've lived in this place and I know all the faces
Each one is different but they're always the same
They mean me no harm but it's time that I face it
They'll never allow me to change
But I never dreamed home would end up where I don't belong
I'm movin' on

I'm movin' on
At last I can see life has been patiently waiting for me
And I know there's no guarantees, but I'm not alone
There comes a time in everyone's life
When all you can see are the years passing by
And I have made up my mind that those days are gone

I sold what I could and packed what I couldn't
Stopped to fill up on my way out of town
I've loved like I should but lived like I shouldn't
I had to lose everything to find out
Maybe forgiveness will find me somewhere down this road
I'm movin' on

I'm movin' on
I'm movin' on
