If Your Life Had a Soundtrack

What would it sound like?

My sister emailed us with this question last fall. Some songs immediately spring to mind--songs that were either big hits around memorable seasons of my life or songs that came out later that describe a certain age or event.

It turns out the hit song the year I was born was "If You Leave Me Now" by Chicago. Hmm. Not exactly cerebral, but...

One of my sisters, rock lover that she is, launched her soundtrack with "Born in the USA." When another sister said goodbye to her beloved nephew, she included "Godspeed (Little Man)" by the Dixie Chicks.

See how it works?

My list would also include, somewhere:
    Something Special by the Gaither Family
    Father’s Eyes by Amy Grant
    Sundays will Never Be the Same by Spanky and Our Gang
    Regardez Moi by Celine Deion
    Gift of a Thistle Soundtrack to Braveheart
    Everybody Hurts by REM
    I Will by Alison Krauss
    Trouble by Coldplay
    You Can’t Love the Wrong Man Right by Linda Ronstadt
    Collide by Howie Day
    Landslide of Love by Newsboys
What would your Soundtrack include?

H/T The Corner And ihearttexas.

UPDATE: I am writing your theme song. Yes, yours. Stay tuned.

I LOVE your soundtrack. It's says "a life lived in fear is a life half-lived."
