(could only find covers of this song… and none compare to the original)

This was the coolest one of these by far! It’s funny how many songs really worked out. In fact, I would say the only one that didn’t really go was the Fight Song… which for me ended up being The Only Moment We Were Alone by Explosions in the Sky. It’s not very much of a “fight song”, lol.

I love that my opening credits were “Drive” because it is such a sexy song. And Headlock for waking up is just perfect. First Heartbreak was perfect too, prom, life, driving, flashback, wedding, birth of a child, death scene and funeral song all great! The best is what ended up being end credits… I am Blume, a flower… I have always thought of that song as one of my theme songs, lol. This is so much fun. If you have time, I highly recommend it…

Oh yeah, and I put links under each one to the Youtube versions of the songs in case you’re curious. I listen to some obscure music and some popular music. I’m definitely eclectic in my music choices.

    Love your music taste… Have you ever been dj or have to do something with the music industry?

    1. It is so cool and ironic how some of the songs work out so well! I like your music taste too.

      No music industry but I’ve been a dancer my whole life. 🙂
