Sound Track of YOUR Life

Several of us created a soundtrack to our lives in 2008.  I revisited it today to see if much has changed. There are some minor tweaks! Here us is the revised edition.

If there was a soundtrack to your life what would those songs be?

Whether it be classical music, rock or maybe a mix? Play along, please. Copy and Paste and make a Life's Playlist.

If there is a scene in your movie missing from mine please add it, after all, it is your Life and your Soundtrack.

What is the soundtrack to your life?


  1. This is such an interesting concept! I think devising such a list takes more brainpower than I have at the moment, but I'm going to keep mulling over the concept. And hey, I'm a John Denver fan too. I miss him. He was gone too soon.

    1. I miss him, too. Poems, Prayers and Promises is truly one of my favorites.

  2. I'mma gonna have to think about this one and post it on my blog!

    1. Cool. Looking forward to it!

    2. I just published my list; I'm all over the map on songs! much like my life!

  3. What a great idea! I think my soundtrack would be a mixture of music, but a lot of it would consist of classic rock tunes.

    1. Would love to know what choices you'd make! I'm sure they would be unique!
