I have had a couple of songs that I've considered my own personal anthems throughout my life.
I still want to fist pump whenever I hear them.
Anthem #1 - Already Gone by The Eagles
This is pure truth, right here:
Well I know it wasn’t you who held me down
Heaven knows it wasn’t you who set me free
So often times it happens that we live our lives in chains
And we never even know we have the key
Can I get an "AMEN"??? That stanza will be memorized by Klaw right after The Lord's Prayer & The Apostle's Creed.
Anthem #2 - Here I Go Again - Whitesnake
Yes, Whitesnake, people. Whitesnake is the awesome.
This was basically my frame of mind until I
Here I go again on my own
goin' down the only road I've ever known.
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone.
An' I've made up my mind, I ain't wasting no more time.
I know that may seem a little sad at first BUT I was single and absolutely loved it. I had no plans to get married. Nope, not for me. The older I got, the less the thought of being shackled to someone appealed to me. I was also living in Charleston and it is REALLY EASY to be single and love your life in Charleston. Gah. It may actually be harder to have a successful committed relationship in Charleston. Oh, fun times.
Anyways, now that I'm a happily married mom (neither item was on my "to-do" list of life), I don't have a theme song anymore. That kind of makes me sad because I LOVE TO SING! So, I'm including a list of potential "new" anthems & the key lyrics that make me love the song:
Get Over It - The Eagles
Complain about the present and blame it on the past
I’d like to find your inner child and kick its little ass
Growing Older But Not Up - Jimmy Buffett
I’m growing older but not up My metabolic rate is pleasantly stuck Let those winds of time blow over my head I’d rather die while I’m livin’ than live while I’m dead
Let Your Soul Shine - The Allman Brothers Band
Let your soul shine,
It's better than sunshine,
It's better than moonshine,
Damn sure better than rain.
Lord now people don't mind,
We all get this way sometimes,
Gotta let your soul shine, shine till the break of day.
What are some songs on your life soundtrack? Any songs that are the anthems of your past??? Which song do you think should be my "new" anthem?
