What’s your theme song? What’s the one song that lyrically or musically best describes who you are to the rest of the world? What’s the one song when you hear the words you think to yourself, “that’s me!”
As of this moment, I’d have to say that this is mine:
I require so much alone time and quiet that my theme is probably 4’33".
Everything else is emotion or mood. This is my “get my shit together” song, my gin up my courage song. Yo no quiero cobardes que me hagan sufrir. I don’t want cowards who make me suffer, but damn it sounds nicer in Spanish.
So far I can’t pick just one, I have to go with three:
1 - Deodato’s rendition of Also Sprach Zarathustralink
2 - Philip Glass’ soundtrack to Koyaanisqatsilink (Could be renamed The Anthropocene Symphony.)
3 - Beethoven’s Awakening of Cheerful Feelings upon Arrival in the Country (first part of Pastoral) link
This kinda sums up the last year for me. First time in over 20 years that I’ve been struggling to find work, and it’s not a comfortable feeling. Just like my man Eddie Spaghetti, I gotta work and I gotta get paid.
How I never came across this song before, I have no idea. Especially since I’ve been pretty much living off of a YouTube loop of Linkin Park the last little while (and One More Light, while not my own theme song, destroys me every single time).
