My most favorite Trivia Queen and Southern Belle tagged me for this, and some people I cannot/will not deny.
I followed her example and did this without much thought, just wrote from the top of my head; in the end, I like what I conjured on short notice.
The River -- Bruce Springsteen
This reminds me of my misspent youth with a very special friend who I loved then, and knowing what she went through in the years we lost each other makes me love her even more. I admire her strength more than words can say, and I *see* her in this song.
My Favorite Mistake -- Sheryl Crow
I’ve had a lot of these and this song makes me feel better about them.
At This Point in My Life -- Tracy Chapman
Because if I could be Ally McBeal for 10 minutes, this would absolutely be my theme song.
Broken -- Days of The New
The pain in this song is so real you can almost pick it up.
American Pie -- Don McLean
I know a lot of people that hate this song. I adore it. I have some very specific older brother related memories associated with this song, and if you ever see a woman singing this (badly) at the top her lungs banging on the dashboard - Hi. It's me.
Lose Yourself -- Eminem
This is a guilty pleasure song. He’s almost as bad as Vanilla Ice. But this is THE best running song, EVER.
Fighter -- Christina Aguilera
My favorite tough girl song. I was slow to get on the Christina bandwagon, thinking she was just another bubble gum pop singer, but she won me over with Stripped.
I’m supposed to tag 7 for this, but I owe Carolina Purl a tag, so I’m tagging her.
When you’re done painting, Ms. Purl, get right on that. I *know* you’ve got the music in you.
