Question of the Week

What would your life theme song be, and how would you use it?

After reading this story, it got us thinking and led to this question: What would your life theme song be, and how would you use it?

Every time I use my straight edge razor to edge my beard, I always play The Black Keys "My Mind Is Ramblin", then let the iPod shuffle through the whole The Black Keys album collection as I do the whole ritual of an old school trim and shave. Sets the mood every time.

Amazing Candy Talk by the way... can't wait to hear the talk on inflation and the 1000 Grand. I hope my investments haven't gone down.

I want to own a motion sensor device that plays the first few seconds of "Photograph" by Nickelback as you walk by different photos on my wall. Chad Kroeger's voice is not only demanding, but makes wonder what really is on Joey's head.

Queen's "Don't Stop Me Now" is the song that I play when I need an extra pep in my step or when I feel super accomplished. I totally catch myself dancing to it. It's great while I'm running too and feel like I'm going slower than molasses. (And it gets me thinking of Shaun of the Dead.) :)

Christine Schofield commented…

Self's version of "What a Fool Believes" should play pretty much whenever I enter the room. Okay, maybe not the most flattering theme song, but it'll make everyone want to dance, so I'm fine with it.

You didn't mention if you bit into a skittle thinking it's an M&M you are going to break your teeth. That's a lawsuit waiting to happen.

I'll just leave this here.
