Ever-Changing Reflection

Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding... It is the bitter potion by which the physician within you heals your sick self. Therefore trust the physician, and drink his remedy in silence and tranquility.
~ Kahlil Gibran

Just follow the music!


I've had this bookmarked to do for a while (from the lovely Rasha at And This is What She Said), and I thought it would be a fun Saturday post.

Rules of the game: 
1) Put your iPod/MP3 player/iTunes/etc. on shuffle.
2) Write down the FIRST song that comes on to each question.
DON'T switch the song if you don't like it... That's the fun of the game.

*How am I feeling today? Sweet Child of Mine - Guns 'n Roses

*How do my friends see me? Hollywood - Jay-Z feat. Beyonce

*What is my best friend's theme song? And Around - Tabitha's Secret (I don't think she's even heard of this band, LOL)

*What is the story of my life? Nobody Not Really - Alicia Keys (not quite sure how to interpret that!)

*What is the best thing about me? Like a Prayer - Madonna (well, I am trying to pray more!)

*What is today going to be like? Trading Places - Usher (really? cool!)

*What is in store for this week? Human Nature - Michael Jackson (Hmm... ok...)

*What song describes my mom? Loving Wings - DMB (OMG, totally fitting!)

*What song describes my dad? Light in Your Eyes - Sheryl Crow (well, I am Daddy's Little Girl)

*To describe my grandparents? Free Fallin' - Tom Petty (most of them are dead, so... maybe?)

*How is my life going? Didn't You Know She's Gone - Phil Vassar (who? my old self? yeah...)

*What song will they play at my funeral? Just the Way You Are - Bill Joel (sigh, perfect)

*How does the world see me? Here Comes Horses - Tabitha's Secret (LMAO!)

*Will I have a happy life? Believe - Josh Groban (oh yes! Law of Attraction, baby!)

*What do my friends really think of me? Sunday Morning - Maroon 5 (Easy like Sunday Morning? Oh wait, that's another song in my playlist...)

*How can I make myself happy? Truly - Lionel Richie (Amen)

*What should I do with my life? Gonna Make You Love Me - Ryan Adams (Um... this is my purpose?)

*What is some good advice for me? Stay Beautiful - Taylor Swift (perfect, good advice!)

*How will I be remembered? Running Out of Days - 3 Doors Down (typical reporter... always against a deadline!)

*What is my signature dancing song? Live Those Songs - Kenny Chesney (yes! I live the music!)

*What is my current theme song? #41 - DMB (aw, love this song!)

*What does everyone else think my current theme song is? '03 Bonnie and Clyde - Jay-Z feat. Beyonce (once upon a time, this was my theme song... oh, maybe back in '03?)


LIFE STORY
*Opening Credits: Something More - Train

*Waking Up: Goodnight Saigon - Billy Joel (that's depressing. love this song though, danced to it long ago... in black leotards and fatigue pants, it was intense)

*First Day At School: Losing Grip - Avril Lavigne (LOL! Quite possibly!)

*Falling In Love: Patience - Guns 'n Roses (yes! I needed to be!)

*Fight Song: Crawl - This Way (really? really?! I'd like to think I put up a better fight than that!)

*Breaking Up: Fumbling Towards Ecstasy - Sarah McLachlan

*Prom: Say Goodbye - DMB (oddly appropriate, if it's senior prom)

*Life's OK: It's My Life - Bon Jovi

*Mental Breakdown: I'm Every Woman - Chaka Khan (I have some pretty good breakdowns!)

*Driving: Oh My God - Jay-Z (I'm sure I've had a passenger or two scream mutter this)

*Flashback: I Need You - Alicia Keys

*Getting Back Together: Grey Street - DMB

*Wedding: Hurt - T.I. feat. Alfamega and Busta Rhymes (um... negative!)

*Birth of Child: Out Loud - Dispatch (oh, that must be my screams)

*Final Battle: Blurry - Puddle of Mudd (that's because I'm moving so fast, you can't see me!)

*Death Scene: Little Bitty Pretty One - Aaron Carter (why, thank you, LOL)

*Funeral Song: All You Wanted - Michelle Branch (appropriate, but I thought we were already going with Billy Joel for this one?)

*End Credits: How 'Bout Us - Champaign (I kinda like it)


*What song describes my mood right now? La Grange - ZZ Top (not sure this fits...)

*What song do I listen to when I'm depressed? Kind and Generous - Natalie Merchant (not my first choice, but it was on the playlist)

*Scared? Cry Freedom - DMB

*Bored? Drowning - Dashboard Confessional


Gee, that was fun! Ha ha ha. Your turn! Be sure to stop by and comment if you play along.
