Sometimes I don’t think we even realize how much music is in the background.
Today as I sit in this coffee shop, they are playing Christmas music. Like they have for days.
Walmart has been playing Christmas music since the day after Halloween. (Don’t they know Thanksgiving comes first? But then again, does anyone know any “Thanksgiving Carols?”)
Christmas is my favorite time of year; I just don’t want to be tired of it by the time it gets here.
This got me thinking about how much music punctuates our lives, whether or not we are paying attention.
About a year ago, I did something kind of fun for myself. I formed a “Life Soundtrack” playlist on my ipod. (I’d share it with you, but my ipod isn’t with me just now.) These were songs that I remember from marking moments and seasons in my life…what was playing on the radio when such-and-such was going on, and things like that.
Songs that would bring back a memory, something from my history.
So…do you have any choice picks from your “life soundtrack?”
How about this? In the comments today (if you’d care to participate)…tell me:
- Five songs that were playing at marking moments in your life;
- What one song would you say has been the most memorable or meaningful, and why.
I’ll chime in with my answer later today in the comments.
