Sometimes when I am out for a stroll, I feel like Walking on Sunshine, by Katrina and the Waves, should be playing behind me. Of course there are also the days that find me moping under the weight of R.E.M.'s Everybody Hurts. I am sure you have songs that tell your story, or you at least have your go to favorites depending on your mood. The soundtracks of our lives.
Maybe you've been coming around here for a few years during this challenge and rocked out to the angsty eighties in 2013, hummed along with the sappy seventies in 2014, or got caught up last year in the nostalgia of the seventies television shows and their often amazing theme songs. This year I am going to go with movie soundtracks that matter (to me). Sometimes the plot is woven together with the music, other times there are just fantastic songs that act as more of a backdrop, or maybe there are just small snippets of songs played that you don't even notice until they are stuck in your head hours later. Every once in awhile there is just one song, in one scene, that is powerful enough to steal the show.
My alphabet is so close to being filled in, and I am excited to get started (and not just because A and B were locks). The challenge starts April first!
Enjoy your Monday, whichever way you choose...
