Oh Monday is upon us again, back to the grind. I feel like Garfield today...I Hate Mondays! I don't hate every Monday. I just don't feel like starting this Monday...probably because I've been sick.
Which brings me to this week's Music Monday theme, music that tells a story of your life. This can be a single all encompassing piece of music, or can be several pieces put together, each that are about part of who you are.
This was a hard theme for me.
The first song that came to mind isn't necessarily about MY life but life in general, The Beatles' song Life Goes On. I love the upbeat sound so I looked up the lyrics online. There were lots of comments on what the true meaning of the song was because in the last verse of the song, Paul McCartney made a slip and said "Desmond stays at home and does his pretty face", instead of Molly, and had Molly letting "the children lend a hand". Reportedly, this mistake was kept in because the other Beatles liked it but there are conspiracy theories out there. I like it for the basic words and sound.
I also love this one to the same tune as Life Goes On. It's by The Offspring and called My Friend's Got a Girlfriend. It has nothing to do with my life.
Again, this song does not truly tell the story of my life but reminds me of it. I'm Catholic and my husband sometimes loving refers to my family as The Brady Bunch because of my wholesome upbringing, whereas his was the opposite. Billy Joel's Only the Good Die Young is one of my favorite songs.
What music moves you? Can you think of one that describes your life?
