When I read Shelly Terrell’s post, I immediately wanted to write about my personal theme song. It was actually something that I wanted to do after I assigned my students with mini projects but having lots of things to do, I just put the idea back to one of the shelves in my brain and now the time has come.
The first one that comes into my mind and says that I’m the song that you are thinking about is Sting’s ‘An Englishman in New York’. Although I’m not an English lady in New York, the advise he gives is so tempting. ‘Be yourself, no matter what they say.’ Sometimes I feel like an alien too and while walking to school in the mornings, I tend to listen to this song to continue my journey that day.
An other song I feel that it belongs to me is ‘Yesterday when I was young’ by Charles Aznavour. I know I’m not that old but days pass so fast and I really was young once, just 20 and lots of good things happened to me when I was 20. So ‘Hier encore, J’avez 20 ans.’ is the one that should have a place in my life story.
There is a song in Italian which is really important for me and I won’t leave it out. It is a San Remo song. ‘Story di tutti i giorni’ by Riccardo Fogli.
And how about this one? Shouldn’t it be included to everybody’s soundtrack.
Empty spaces – what are we living for?
Abandoned places – I guess we know the score…
On and on!
Does anybody know what we are looking for?
‘Show must go on’ by Quin
And I’d like to add more actually, songs are the only things that can make you feel motivated, recall the past, feel enthusasic about something that you are about to start. We laugh, dance and cry with them. And I’m sure all the soundtracks of our life stories are worth listening.
Can I end the movie with a classic?
