Songs in the Key of Life!

In case you are not already aware, besides this blog, I post over at Grasshopper New Media Parents as well as my LD Podcast blog. Megin tagged us all with the following meme for the weekend, so here it goes:  Songs in the Key of Life, to quote the Stevie Wonder song of the same name.  Give it a shot and link back here, or to GNM Parents.  We’d love to hear your songs!

How to Play:

1. Open your library (iTunes,iPod, etc)
2. Put it on shuffle
3. Press play
4. For every question below, type the song that’s playing
5. When you go to a new question, press the nextbutton

Here are mine:

Opening Credits:
Think for Yourself- The Beatles

First Day At School:
Absolute Beginners – The Jam


Falling In Love:

Bouncing Around the Room- Amazing Blue (an acapellla group)

(Ok, this is weirdly appropriate so far, and I have been bursting out laughing and amazed)


Breaking Up:

Anything Goes -from the soundtrack of De-Lovely

Prom:
I Will- The Beatles

Mental Breakdown:

Ok- I got a chapter of Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince about trusting Prof. Slughorn from Chapter 17.  Hmmmm.

Flashbacks:
Dancing Cheek to Cheek- Eva Cassidy

Getting Back Together:

North Dakota- Lyle Lovett  (If you love me say you love me, if you love me, take my hand…)

Wedding Scene:

Let’s Have a Baby- The Candy Butchers  (This is funny, especially since my husband is an OB-GYN)

Final Battle:
Volcano- Jimmy Buffett

Death Scene:
The Hard Way- Mary Chapin-Carpenter

Funeral Song:
River of Dreams- Billy Joel

End Credits:
Don’t get around much anymore- Harry Connick Jr. From When Harry Met Sally soundtrack- (Mr. Saturday Night….)

Finale:

And for Megin- Favorite exercise song:

I think it’s a three way tie.  Train in Vain by the Clash.  Life is a Highway by Rascal Flats.  Some Kind of Wonderful- I have one from a collection of 70’s songs that I love.

What are yours?

Happy Weekend!

  1. Meg

    Thanks for playing! Funny, but I WILL was your prom song- it was our wedding song.

  2. And our wedding song was “Stars Fell on Alabama” by Jimmy Buffett. It was between that and a Marc Cohen song, but that one won out at the last minute. I Will is the song I sang to the kids as a lullabye when they were small, and from time to time now. (Although James likes the Tigger song best…..)
