I'm a pretty musical person, and I do life to a soundtrack. I very often associate even the most mundane activities of daily life with one song or another. The other day, it occurred to me that certain songs always pop into my head when I'm using my various social profiles. So I thought I'd share them with you, and see if any of you can relate.
Because I can only put it down for a while. And someday when my kids are old enough to have a say in whether or not I can post pictures of them, they might claim it "made me mistreat my only child."
There are times I wish this theme song was around when I was a newspaper reporter. You listen to it and you instantly feel like there's a frenzy of activity surrounding something really important. And since Twitter is a journalist's best friend, I can't help but think of it every time there aren't enough seconds in a minute to refresh my Twitter feed.
A bit cliche, yes. But every now and again, in the midst of all that professional connecting and resume-perfecting, I see Chris Farley auditioning for the Chippendales with Patrick Swayze. And that always brightens up even the darkest work day.
The theme from "Sesame Street."
Because my kid has pretty much commandeered my YouTube account and filled it with enough Elmo and Ernie and Grover clips to last for generations.
My Google+ usage summary: I stop in, have a little fun, then leave — and I don't return for days, even weeks. But it's still there, waiting for me, every time. By all accounts this is an abusive relationship and I'm a total trollop. Or, you know, a total stud if I were a dude.
Obvious photography reference aside, this beautiful Stevie Wonder song always pops into my head when I'm on Instagram now. Ever since I used Instagram to create posters comprising old family photos, it just seems to fit.
Well, there you have it. Do you have any of your own musical picks?
