If my life was to be a movie, it'd be endless, only because I'd have a soundtrack that runs into days!
I've always had a song for every situation/mood, or maybe a situation/mood for every favourite song, actually make that a couple of songs. One of my most precious gifts is a cassette given to me by a friend I was dating in college, a compilation of his favourite mood-songs, with handwritten labels. There's also no better way to beat Monday Morning blues than have your favourite numbers belt out from the ipod, and opening the bathroom door to catch your three-year-old shaking his booty, Masai style.
Here's what I'm humming to today: My favourite song from the Jungle Book, that I was reminded of gently, and unexpectedly by Momstir. Also, such an apt way to begin a week that celebrates the winning of the underdog, Slumdog Millionaire and the uplifting, Smile Pinki.
'The bare necessities of life will come to you... oh They'll come to you!'
Also, the more the merrier, and more choice maketh for a happier woman, and all that jazz, that's why this one: because sometimes all you need to get through a day, is just plough through it. 'I'm still trying to get on the hill of hope.'
What's your salve song for an instant pick-me-up to prepare you for the week ahead?
