Sing your own special song…
-Mama Cass Elliott

Music is a universal language for sure. Since everyone’s different, today I’m asking you to finish the following sentence:

My theme song is…..

When I thought about my own theme song the first one that came to mind was Mama Cass’s Make Your Own Kind of Music. Here it is in her beautiful, inimitable voice. Gone too soon.

I’m interested to hear who you are in music! In the comments, let us know what your own theme song is.

    Hmmm – I’ll have to think about this. I love music and I’ve never really thought about having a theme song for my life. I do have that song you mentioned playing in my head right now, so that’s a good thing.

  2. That is a great song and what a message. I love Earth, Wind and Fire so i would use one of their songs to capture my life and ideas.

  3. Great post. Music has always bern an important part of my life.It has helped me deal with chronic health issues. Music has amazing healing powers. I have always tended to be drawn to songs that had a positive message or message of courage, not giving up, etc. Sara Bareilles’ “King of Anything” resonates with me. The groups that stand out from over the years are Styx, ABBSA, Eagles,and Moody Blues.

  4. Whups! Cyberspace messed with my post. Those typos weren’t there before, honestly. lol

  5. Tasheena says:

    I will have to say that one of the first theme songs that comes to mind for me is Katy Perry Roar. Love the message behind the song.

  6. Diane says:

    Husby’s and mine would be ‘Can’t Help Falling in Love’ by the legendary Elivs. But mine alone? ‘Happy’ by Pharrell Williams!

  7. Haralee says:

    “I Will Survive”

  8. “Still Standing” by Elton John was released in 1983, a particularly difficult time in my life. Over the years, I’ve always come back to that upbeat positive song when I hit a rough patch.

  9. Candy says:

    You know I don’t know if I have a theme song. I like so many different kinds of music. Have to think some more on it

  10. This is such a fun challenge. I like all different genres of music, including country, hip hop, pop, classical… My theme song would definitely change based on the mood I’m in on any given day!

  11. Joyce says:

    India.Arie is my go to in many situations when I need to feel grounded. Strength, Courage and Wisdom is my song. Many others follow it, but if I had to pick one, it would be this.

  12. Lucy says:

    ‘Love what you do’ by the Divine Comedy. Says it all…

  13. Janet says:

    What a great choice of topic! Mine might be “Don’t Stop Believing” by Journey, but I could also think of a few others.

  14. Wow, that is an interesting question to ponder. I love music, but never really thought about a theme song for my life.

  15. Pam Wattenbarger says:

    I’m not sure what my theme song to my life would be. I will have to think about that one for a bit!

  16. What is my theme song for my life. Oh my goodness that is deep. I think I’d go with Call and answer by Bare Naked Ladies. 🙂

  17. Lisa Favre says:

    Music is definitely something that runs in my family. Your song seems so inspiring! I can’t quite pinpoint a song to my life, I feel like there are so many fantastic ones to choose from!!

  18. Roch says:

    Ours is A Million Years. It’s the song we danced in our wedding reception and the same song my husband used to serenade me when he proposed for marriage.

  19. Every day it is different, but today my theme song is Celebrate, Another Day of Living!

  20. Jennifer says:

    Well, Donovan created a built-in theme song for me. But seeing as how I appear to do all the care-taking, I think my true theme song is Lean On Me.

  21. I would be the “Dancing queen” by Abba, I love all of their songs. Make your own kind of music is a good one too.

  22. I love music but never thought about my own theme song! This sounds fun, my goal is to find a theme song now

  23. Farrah Less says:

    I have theme song for every I may have that time. When I am a teenager I like sad love songs don’t ask me why. Love song makes me calm and relax.

  24. Kita Bryant says:

    I would have to say it is Billy Jean. That song just really changed my life as far as listening to music goes!

  25. I forgot the title but I think it was sang by Colbie Caliat. I love the positive vibes of the song. Oh now, I remember its “Brighter than the sun”

  26. Rob says:

    I’m too young to have known that song. But lately my theme song has been coming from the same era… “Wake Up and Live” by Bob Marley.

  27. Mira Edorra says:

    Sometimes I pretend I’m Batman and run around the schoolyard singing the Pokémon theme. Just to screw with people’s heads you know?
